Notre Dame will continue to host recruits on campus for unofficial visits during the spring football session this weekend.

Junior safety target Nicco Fertitta will visit Notre Dame for the first time since receiving an offer in January. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound safety prospect from Las Vegas Bishop Gorman has previously visited Notre Dame twice before in 2013.

Fertitta totaled 47 tackles, 3½ tackles for a loss, five pass deflections and an interception for Nevada state champion Gorman, the same program that produced Irish offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley.

A three-star prospect, Fertitta ranks as the No. 31 safety recruit in the 2015 class according to Rivals. 247Sports slates him No. 56 at the position.

The Irish will also host 2016 running back prospect Robert Washington. The 5-10, 205-pound recruit from Southlake Christian Academy in Huntersville, N.C., said he will be on campus Friday and Saturday with his father.

As a sophomore, Washington rushed for 2,512 yards on 219 carries with 28 touchdowns. He also caught 12 passes for 267 yards. Washington has yet to receive an offer from Notre Dame.
