Earlier this month, Notre Dame wrapped up a 2018 recruiting class that included 10 members featured in the Rivals 250.

The Irish have plenty of work to do if they want to hit that number again in the 2019 class. When Rivals released its latest top 250 for the 2019 class last week, none of Notre Dame's four verbal commitments made the list.

Three of those Irish pledges saw their position rankings in the class drop in the latest update from Rivals.

Defensive lineman Hunter Spears moved down three spots to the No. 20 weakside defensive end in the 2019 class. Defensive tackle Jacob Lacey fell nine spots to the No. 18 defensive tackle in the class. Both Spears and Lacey are rated as four-star recruits.

Cornerback K.J. Wallace, who has been placed in the athlete category for prospects who could play multiple positions, dropped seven spots to the No. 55 athlete. Wallace remained rated as a three-star recruit.

Quarterback Cade McNamara maintained his spot as a four-star recruit and the No. 9 pro-style quarterback in the class. Both McNamara and Lacey were originally slated in the first Rivals 250 for the 2019 class that was released in August.

The updated Rivals 250 for the 2019 class, which includes several Notre Dame targets, can be found here.
