Notre Dame may be on spring break this week, but that isn’t stopping the Irish staff from doing work on the recruiting trail.
The staff extended an offer to Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic outside linebacker Eli’Jah Winston.
Notre Dame joins the likes of UCLA, Oregon, Utah, Oregon State, Colorado and Hawaii as programs to extend an offer to the four-star linebacker.
Oregon has already been good to the Irish program so far in 2018 landing a commitment from Portland (Ore.) Tigard athlete Braden Lenzy. Winston is the third player from the state to earn an offer following Lenzy and Corvallis (Ore.) Crescent Valley athlete Talanoa Hufanga.
As a junior, Winston was named to the ALL-USA Oregon first-team defense by USA TODAY. He is ranked as the No. 21 outside linebacker in the class. He is the No. 6 player in Oregon.
