2018 defensive back from California, Tariq Bracy, has committed to Notre Dame. He was on campus in October to watch the Irish dominate USC and really seemed to fall in love with the University. His parents also were on campus to get a feel for it all during his official. I don’t think this comes as a shock to a lot of people but definitely suprising timing with the amount of top prospects they are still involved with. I think it was very smart of the staff to get a player like him and of Bracy himself to get his spot before it was to late with the class filling up fast. Bracy is considered an “athlete” on the ranking sites but the staff is looking at him to contribute mainly at cornerback. He holds 11 offers from Cal, San Diego State, Utah and others.

Why Tariq Bracy?
The staff has a ton of talanted secondary players that, in all honesty, they aren’t used to fighting over down the stretch in recruiting. Obvisouly his offer list won’t blow you away what-so-ever but Elko and Co. seem to absolutely love Bracy and what he brings. I think in the end they just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have his athleticism on the roster.
The 6’0 170 pound corner is exteremly athlete. He has great speed, tremendous change of direction and can honestly play anywhere he’s needed. Because of his ability to play several different positions throughout high school I think that helps a lot with knowledge of the game of football. His ability to locate and go up and compete for the ball is impressive and I think that stemmed from playing a ton of running back and receiver throughout his high school career. His break on the ball is very impressive as well and he clearly has good make up speed on the back end.
I think Elko and the staff is very happy with what they are getting from Bracy and it’s a solid pick up for this class. There is now 18 commits in the class and we all expect the staff to try and add several more top DB targets before it’s all said and done.
