Notre-Dame football continues to stack talent for the 2023 recruit class, this time landing a talented running back in Jayden Limar.
Notre Dame football has landed in 2023, bringing Jayden Limar back from Washington. Limar was on campus recently and enjoyed everything. The staff have prioritized Limar since the day they offered it and that hasn’t changed.
The Irish recently lost a commitment to push back Sedrick Irvin Jr and a big reason for that was because the current staff was very high on Limar, among other things, and Irvin was not in the plans for the new staff’s future. It’s unfortunate, but that’s the business of college football now, especially when these kids want to be treated and paid like professionals.
Limar felt like a priority and he didn’t want to wait long to make it official. Relationships also played a big part in this decision for him, and it fitted really well with the current commits and roster.
Limar currently has 19 listings from Oregon, Michigan, Southern Cal and more.
What brings Jayden Limar to the Notre Dame soccer team?
The 5’11, 190-pound running back brings speed, athleticism and consistency to his game, to name a few. He’s very strong for his size and it takes multiple tackles to bring him down most of the time. Limar is someone who will really thrive on the strength program with some extra weight.
A true-to-life running back that fits the position like a glove. Low center of gravity and stays on your feet really well. I’d say he’s a faster Kyren Williams with less wobble and movement but someone who could really thrive in that similar role on the Irish offense. He’s a solid defenseman who also comes out of the backfield and runs north and south, which is nice to see in a very talented high school defenseman.
I’d love to see him develop in pass protection, but it usually takes some experience from running backs this early in their careers. During his junior season, he had over 1,900 yards from scrimmage and averaged 7.41 yards per carry. He ran for 20 touchdowns, received four touchdowns and added a kickoff return to his stats.
With Jayden Limar making it official, the 2023 Irish recruiting class has 13 commitments, with 8 on defense and now 5 on offense, and still holds onto the nation’s number one class by a wide margin.
Limar is restarting for the running back room and most likely has another spot to fill, making them a solid duo going into signing day at the end of the year. Running back coach Deland McCullough has his man, that’s for sure. And he expects and wants to get another big fish when the time comes.
