Aug. 1 of a prospect’s senior year is when they can start receiving an “official” scholarship offer from a school. Before that day, all offers are verbal. And the Notre Dame Fighting Irish’s official offers it sent out via graphic form and in the mail were fantastic.

Tampa (Fla.) Berkeley Prep’s Keon Keeley, theNo. 1 EDGE and No. 12 overall player according to the 2023 On3 Consensus rankings, received his official offer in the mail, and his mother tweeted out a video of it. The pop-out artwork with Notre Dame monuments with the offer letter and other notes — including a small handwritten message from head coach Marcus Freeman — are visible.

A few of the tweets of the Irish commits’ official offers can be viewed below.

The Fighting Irish currently have the No. 2 class nationally per the 2023 On3 Consensus Football Team Recruiting Rankings. The Irish have 20 commitments, including one On3 Consensus five-star (Keeley), 18 four-stars and one three-star. Notre Dame has a blue-chip ratio — which is the amount of four- and five-star players in the class — of 95 percent.

Notre Dame only has one in-state commit — Merrillville (Ind.) Andrean linebacker Drayk Bowen — and a class average distance of 843.1 miles from the prospect’s hometown to South Bend.
