Signee 101: Get to know 4-star WR Micah Jones

Notre Dame-Notre Dame Fighting Irish-Notre Dame football

In what could prove to be the best recruiting class ever at Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish are adding several key pieces to their defense this week. But they are also signing a few offensive players that could be important contributors in years to come.

That includes 4-star wide receiver Micah Jones.

How Micah Jones fits at Notre Dame

The Fighting Irish didn’t utilize their wide receivers very much this season, but Brandon Wimbush isn’t going to stay the quarterback at Notre Dame forever. Nothing against Wimbush, but under him, the Irish are predominantly a running team, so the wideouts don’t receive much of a chance to showcase their talents.

But if Jones can make an impact in his first year, the Irish will have a trio of talented receivers. Both junior Equanimeous St. Brown and sophomore Chase Claypool recorded 400 receiving yards on at least 29 catches. Jones would give Wimbush and the offense a third option in the passing game.

And like those two receivers, Jones has a big frame that should be able to use his size and catch radius to provide Notre Dame matchup advantages.
