Notre Dame signee Brady Dunlap has requested to be released from his National Letter of Intent following head coach Mike Brey’s announcement to retire at the conclusion of the 2022-23 season.

Dunlap — a 6-foot-7 small forward out of Los Angeles (Calif.) Harvard Westlake — committed to the Fighting Irish in September, before signing in November. He chose Notre Dame over offers from Colorado, San Diego State, Nebraska, Rice, Providence, and others.

Notre Dame still has two players signed in the 2023 class — four-star shooting guard Parker Friedrichsen (No. 116) and three-star point guard Markus Burton (No. 157).

Dunlap’s statement

Brady Dunlap sent the following statement to On3 regarding his decommitment:

“Due to the announcement of Coach Brey’s retirement, I have requested my release from Notre Dame and will open my recruitment.

“I want to wish Coach Brey well and thank Coach Antoni Wyche for all of his efforts in recruiting me.”

According to the On3 Consensus, the average ranking from all four major recruiting media companies, Dunlap ranks as the No. 149 overall prospect in the 2023 class. On3 is much higher than the industry, ranking the sharpshooter as the No. 75th overall prospect.

This past summer, Dunlap averaged 16.0 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game for Strive For Greatness (CA) on the Nike EYBL Circuit. Strive For Greatness is sponsored by LeBron James, and Dunlap played alongside the NBA star’s son, Bronny James. Dunlap also shot 46 percent from the field and 34 percent from three.
