On Tuesday, the Notre Dame football program added a second quarterback to its 2024 recruiting class. Omaha (Neb.) Westside signal-caller Anthony Rezac announced his verbal commitment to the Fighting Irish as a preferred walk-on.

The 6-foot-3½, 190-pounder intends to walk on at Notre Dame over eight scholarship offers, including ones from Air Force, Army and Navy. Rezac is the twin brother of Irish 2024 linebacker pledge Teddy Rezac, who accepted a scholarship offer from Notre Dame. 

Anthony Rezac has led the Westside Warriors to two state championships in Nebraska’s highest classification (Class A). This past one was his best statistically.

In 13 games, Rezac completed 160-218 (73.4%) passes for 2,316 yards, 30 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. On the ground, he compiled 905 yards and 15 scores on 97 carries (9.3 yards per carry). 

During his junior season, Rezac relied on his rushing skills more frequently. He had 160 carries for 1,118 yards and 19 touchdowns in 13 games. In the passing game, he connected on 168-250 throws (67.2%) for 2,239 yards, 19 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. 

Rezac finished high school with 407-584 completions (69.7%) for 5,776 yards, 68 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 35 games across three seasons. His final rushing stats were 309 carries for 2,270 yards and 36 scores. 

Rezac does not have an On3 or On3 Industry Ranking rating. However, one primary recruiting media service awarded him three stars, ranking him as the No. 129 quarterback and No. 17 prospect in Nebraska in the 2024 recruiting cycle. 

“He’s a stud,” Westside High coach Paul Limongi told Blue & Gold in July. “He’s the best quarterback in the state of Nebraska.” 

Limongi coached Notre Dame four-year safety Xavier Watts at Omaha (Neb.) Harry A. Burke High School.

In addition to Anthony and Teddy Rezac, the Irish are recruiting Westside High 2025 class linebacker Christian Jones. Notre Dame offered the 6-3, 215-pound Jones during its Pot of Gold Day recruiting event on March 17. Although about 65 other recruits picked up scholarship offers that day, few have the same profile as Jones. 

According to the On3 Industry Ranking, a proprietary algorithm that compiles ratings and rankings from all four primary recruiting media services, Jones is the No. 164 overall player, No. 19 linebacker and No. 1 prospect in Nebraska in 2025. He has 16 other Power Five offers. 

The Irish hosted Jones on campus for the Ohio State game on Sept. 23. The Rezacs also attended that game and the Southern California clash on Oct. 14. 

Teddy Rezac is the No. 720 overall player, No. 66 linebacker and No. 6 prospect in Nebraska in the 2024 recruiting cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking. 

Anthony Rezac accompanies four other preferred walk-on pledges in Notre Dame’s 2024 recruiting class. The Irish previously secured commitments from wide receivers Xavier Southall (legacy), Matt Jeffery (lacrosse signee), linebacker Tommy Powlus (legacy) and long snapper Joseph Vinci

Notre Dame has had 2024 scholarship quarterback CJ Carr committed since June 9, 2022. Saine (Mich.) High’s Carr is a four-star prospect ranked as the No. 57 overall player, No. 6 quarterback and No. 1 prospect in Michigan, per the On3 Industry Ranking. 

The Irish 2024 recruiting class currently ranks No. 9 in the On3 Industry Ranking Football Team Recruiting Rankings. They have a score of 91.724. Georgia is No. 1 at 94.405.
