Notre Dame tight end commit Cole Kmet joined fellow Irish pledges Brock Wright and Robert Hainsey in the updated Rivals 100 for the 2017 class.

Kmet moved up 115 spots in the overall rankings to No. 89. He’s now ranked as the No. 3 tight end in the class. Kmet was previously slated sixth at the position by Rivals.

Wright and Hainsey took slight hits in their overall rankings but maintained their spots in the position rankings.

Rivals now pegs Wright as the No. 52 recruit overall and the No. 1 tight end. He was previously pegged at No. 42 overall.

Hainsey dropped eight spots to No. 72 overall. He remains the No. 11 offensive tackle in the class.

The new Rivals rankings include 28 five-star recruits. Notre Dame can be considered a contender for at least six of them: offensive tackle Foster Sarell (No. 3 overall), outside linebacker Baron Browning (No. 4), wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones (No. 13), cornerback Darnay Holmes (No. 15), offensive tackle Jedrick Wills (No. 16), and cornerback Shaun Wade (No. 17).
