Four-star offensive guard Aaron Banks committed to Notre Dame on Friday afternoon, becoming the Fighting Irish’s sixth offensive line commit and 18th overall.


Brian Kelly and Notre Dame received a nice bit of news heading into the weekend, when on Friday afternoon 4-star offensive guard Aaron Banks committed to the Fighting Irish.

When Banks sat down for his announcement, there were six options on the table outside of Notre Dame: the Cal Bears, Michigan Wolverines, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Oregon Ducks, Tennessee Volunteers and UCLA Bruins. Despite fielding a top seven, it was believed that Notre Dame and Michigan were the two programs battling it out.

Banks took an official visit to Ann Arbor on November 5 to watch the Wolverines pummel former defensive coordinator DJ Durkin’s Maryland Terrapins, 59-3. Prior to that, he visited South Bend on September 17 for the Fighting Irish’s game against Michigan State. There was another September visit on the books, when he traveled to Eugene on the 10th, though the dismissal of Mark Helfrich was enough to believe the Ducks had been removed from serious contention.

Standing 6-foot-7 and weighing in at 344 pounds, Banks hails from from El Cerrito, California, and is ranked as the nation’s No. 7 OG.

The Fighting Irish now have 18 commits aboard for the 2017 recruiting class. Banks is the sixth offensive line commit, and joins fellow 4-star prospects Darnell Ewell and Dillan Gibbons as the team’s OG pledges.

Notre Dame is listed at No. 7 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings
