While the majority of the recruiting attention followed the visitors being hosted by Notre Dame for the Stanford game, the Irish commits were busy playing games over the weekend as well.

Here’s a recap of the 16 recruits verbally committed to Notre Dame who played a game in the past week.

RB Josh Adams: Central Bucks South 52, Neshaminy 29. Adams continued to be the workhorse for Central Bucks South (5-1) and scored another five touchdowns. He rushed 32 times for 253 yards and four touchdowns. Adams also caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. Adams has rolled up 1,191 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns this season.

WR C.J. Sanders: Sherman Oaks Notre Dame 37, Oaks Christian 31. Sanders recovered from a hard hit and helped Notre Dame (4-1) close out a victory. Sanders caught nine passes for 133 yards, with 105 yards and a touchdown coming in the second half.

WR Jalen Guyton: Allen 49, Lewisville 13. Guyton added two more touchdown catches to his season total in the lopsided win. He caught five passes for 97 yards including touchdowns of 39 and 21 yards in just one half of play for Allen (6-0).

CB Shaun Crawford: St. Edward 34, Cardinal Mooney 6. Crawford did a little bit of everything in the St. Edward (4-2) win. He recorded one tackle for a loss, two assisted tackles and one pass breakup on defense. Crawford also caught one pass for 10 yards.

OL Trevor Ruhland: Cary-Grove 54, McHenry 20. Ruhland and the Cary-Grove offensive line paved the way for a bruising rushing attack that rolled up 444 yards. Ruhland finished with six pancake blocks for Cary-Grove (6-0).

OL Tristen Hoge: Highland 61, Idaho Falls 14. Hoge’s team continued to roll with another blowout win. The Rams (6-0) have scored more than 35 points in five of their six wins.

DL Micah Dew-Treadway: Bolingbrook 34, Lockport 10. Dew-Treadway caused some havoc in the Lockport backfield Friday night. He made five tackles for loss in the win for Bolingbrook (5-1).

CB Nick Coleman: Kettering Alter 35, Purcell Marian 0. Coleman scored a pair of touchdowns in the second quarter of the Alter victory. He reached the end zone on a two-yard rush and a 27-yard rush for the Knights (6-0).

DT Brandon Tiassum: Speedway 52, Park Tudor 35. The Park Tudor defense couldn’t slow down Speedway, but Tiassum found his way into the action repeatedly. Tiassum recorded seven tackles, four forced fumbles and three blocked kicks for the Panthers (1-6).

DT Elijah Taylor: La Salle 34, Cincinnati Moeller 9. Taylor totaled 10 tackles, but Moeller (5-1) suffered its first loss of the season. La Salle’s 34 points scored against Moeller is 14 more than the Crusaders allowed in their first five games.

S Nicco Fertitta: Bishop Gorman 56, Shadow Ridge 0. Fertitta played just two series as Bishop Gorman ran away with another victory. The Gaels (7-0) remains No. 1 in USA Today’s national high school poll.

CB Ashton White: Bishop McNamara 20, Archbishop Carroll 14. White and the Bishop McNamara (2-3) defense held Carroll scoreless for three quarters in the victory.

OL Jerry Tillery: Evangel Christian 53, KIPP Renaissance 6. Tillery and Evangel Christian recorded a victory in their return home. The Eagles (2-3) were well ahead by halftime.
