Hot Board: 2021 Notre Dame Offensive Skill Targets

There's still a month until Notre Dame signs its 2020 class, but the coaching staff is already ahead of the game for 2021 prospects, and the Irish have seven commitments and the nation's top class per Rivals.

Blue & Gold Illustrated recruiting insider Mike Singer breaks down who the top targets are, gives a gauge on their interest, and where the Irish stand with them.

We begin the Hot Board series with Notre Dame's 2021 targets at quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end.

HOT BOARD KEY

Hot: Commitment watch
Warmer: High interest, nearing commitment watch
Warm: Medium interest, needs more development
Cold: Long shot/not very involved

QUARTERBACK

Top Offers: Committed To Notre Dame

The Latest: La Jolla (Calif.) The Bishop's School quarterback Tyler Buchner gave Notre Dame a verbal commitment back in March and is completely solid to the Irish. The four-star prospect's most recent visit to South Bend was Oct. 12 for the USC game. Buchner keeps in touch with offensive skill prospects to try to persuade them to Notre Dame. The nation's No. 65 overall prospect and No. 8 pro-style quarterback is having simply a stunning junior season, accounting for 61 total touchdowns in his first 10 games, coming after his sophomore year in which he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first game.

NOTES: With Buchner committed, Notre Dame is done recruiting scholarship quarterbacks in the 2021 class.
