The biggest recruiting weekend of January for Notre Dame just passed. The Irish hosted a junior day with more than a dozen targets in the 2019 class making it to campus. But the weekend also included two of the top remaining targets in the 2018 class coming to town.

• 2018 RB target C'Borius Flemister

Cornerback DJ Brown, also a 2018 recruit, arrived for his official visit on Sunday. But the majority of the stars on campus belonged to the 2019 class.

• Notre Dame's staff did its part in hyping the junior day on Twitter.
