The nation’s top-ranked 2023 recruiting class added another four-star commitment on Friday when offensive tackle Sullivan Absher picked Notre Dame over finalists Clemson and NC State. He’s the 13th public commitment for the Irish, whose class ranks No. 1 on On3, 247Sports and Rivals.

In getting the Belmont, N.C. product out of his home state, the Irish scored another recruiting victory in their ACC footprint, with two of North Carolina’s top offensive linemen now committed to Notre Dame. Three-star offensive guard Sam Pendleton committed to Notre Dame on April 25; he also held offers from NC State and Clemson. Notre Dame could make it a clean sweep of its top offensive line targets in the Carolinas when four-star Monroe Freeling (Mount Pleasant, S.C.) returns for an official visit on June 10.
