Notre Dame's junior day was Saturday, but the Irish still have talented 2017 recruits headed to campus to this week.

On Tuesday, four-star offensive lineman Robert Hainsey is visiting Notre Dame. The 6-foot-5, 276-pound junior at Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy originally had planned to be in South Bend for the Blue-Gold Game but moved his first trip to campus earlier.

Hainsey's offer list of more than 20 schools is heavy on SEC and Big Ten programs including Auburn, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State.

247Sports slates Hainsey as the No. 3 offensive guard in the 2017 class. Rivals ranks him as the No. 8 offensive tackle.

On Wednesday, four-star defensive tackle Greg Rogers plans to visit Notre Dame. The 6-4, 305-pound junior from Las Vegas Arbor View claims more than 20 offers including USC, UCLA, Michigan, Texas A&M and Oklahoma.

Rivals ranks Rogers as the No. 11 defensive tackle in the 2017 class. 247Sports slates him No. 13 at the position.

Neither Hainsey nor Rogers have received offers from Notre Dame, but both could see that change this week.

Below are junior highlights of Hainsey and Rogers via Hudl.
