Notre Dame follows top 2024 ATH Tae Johnson


Brauntae Johnsondoesn’t have an offer from Notre Dame yet, but the Irish are certainly showing interest.

During last month’s contact period, the Irish made a few stops at North Side High School in Fort Wayne to check out the 2024 Indiana Athlete.

“Coach (Ben) Mason came (last) Friday,” Johnson told Irish Sports Daily. “And coach (Chris) O’Leary came the week before.”

The 6-foot-3, 170-pounder already has offers from schools like Purdue, Indiana, Iowa State, Kansas and Cincinnati, among others.

He has camped out and played games at Notre Dame in the past and the Irish would like him back.

“They’re really trying to get me back on campus, trying to meet the new receiver coach and stuff,” Johnson said of Notre Dame’s message.

“That’s really all it is, just trying to get me on campus to meet the new coaches.”

Johnson thinks that’s something he can probably do, maybe as soon as next month.

“Every time our basketball season is over,” said Johnson, who also stands out on the hardwood.

“I’m going to try to eliminate every school in the state, so Notre Dame, IU, Purdue and probably Cincinnati.”

When he returns to South Bend, he hopes to have a better idea of ​​the whole program.

“Really all about it for real; more about what the players are doing and all that,” he said.

Coincidentally, Mason had to check in with Johnson even before he was hired as the new Irish special teams coach last month.

“He was in Cincinnati and I was supposed to see him already,” Johnson said. “He’s cool. It was nice talking to him. I just like the feel of all the Notre Dame coaches, really.

Johnson has no timeline for whittling down his roster or making a final decision.
