Notre Dame lands four-star cornerback recruit

SHARE Notre Dame lands four-star cornerback recruit

Four-star cornerback Cole Luke became the third defensive back to join Notre Dame’s 2013 recruiting class on Thursday, according to multiple online reports.

Luke, a senior at Hamilton High in Chandler, Ariz., was the 22nd-ranked cornerback prospect, according to Rivals.com. The 6-foot, 165-pound Luke had more than a dozen offers from high-profile programs, including Oklahoma. He took his official visit to Oklahoma last week, according to Rivals, and saw the Irish defeat the Sooners.

Luke is the 22nd member of the so-called “Irish Mob” incoming freshman class. His addition further bolsters the secondary, which was so thin this season after failing to bring in a single cornerback recruit that three converted offensive players have been starting — cornerbacks Bennett Jackson and KeiVarae Russell and safety Matthias Farley.

Blue and Gold Illustrated was the first to report Luke’s commitment.
