Dylan Edwards De-Commits From Notre Dame

Kansas running back Dylan Edwards has de-committed from Notre Dame

Notre Dame's 2023 recruiting class suffered a blow today Derby (Kan.) High School running back Dylan Edwards de-committed and announced he would be signing elsewhere on December 21st.

Edwards committed to Notre Dame back in August after de-committing from Kansas State, where his father played running back. Although he was a dynamic running back in high school, Edwards was projected to be a slot receiver/return man for Notre Dame.

The reason for Edwards' de-commitment is two-fold. According to sources, Edwards has been receiving significant NIL offers, and other sources indicate there was growing concern on that side of things that Notre Dame was loading up too much at both running back and wide receiver.

Notre Dame already has two talented running backs in the class in Jeremiyah Love and Jayden Limar. Since Edwards committed as a hybrid player with a look at wide receiver, Notre Dame also received a commitment from Texas standout Kaleb Smith, who also projects as a slot receiver in the Notre Dame offense. Smith became the fourth receiver to commit to Notre Dame.

That left Edwards in a position where his class was filling up at both positions that he was projected to play. Combine that with the NIL offers and it appears, according to sources, those two factors contributed to Edwards deciding to leave the class just two weeks before the early signing period opens.
