It's no secret that Notre Dame has a need at the cornerback position.

The Irish failed to sign a cornerback in their 2017 class, and their lone 2018 cornerback commit — four-star prospect Kalon Gervin — backed away from that pledge earlier this month.

Could Donte Burton fill the void?

Let's take a look at the 2018 Georgia cornerback recruit, who reported a Notre Dame offer on Tuesday.

CB DONTE BURTON, 5-11, 173; LAWRENCEVILLE (GA.) CENTRAL GWINNETT.

Junior statistics: 34 tackles, one interception, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery.

247Sports ranking: Three stars, No. 42 cornerback.

Rivals ranking: Three stars.

Notable offers: Missouri, North Carolina, Oregon, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Colorado, Kansas State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin.
