Notre Dame added a major piece to its 2025 recruiting class on Monday.

The Fighting Irish picked up a commitment from 3-star cornerback Cree Thomas. He also held offers from programs such as Oregon, Arizona and Wisconsin, amongst others.

Thomas is the No. 398 overall prospect and the No. 44 cornerback in the country for the class of 2025, per 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 4 player from the state of Arizona.

Thomas could rise to the level of being a 4-star prospect in the coming months. He initially received an offer from Notre Dame back in March.

He attends Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, Ariz. He’s listed at 6-foot-1, 175 pounds.

Notre Dame is off to an exceptionally strong start in the class of 2025. Thomas is the 9th prospect to commit to Notre Dame in that cycle. However, he’s the first defensive back to join Notre Dame in the 2025 class.

Overall, the group of 9 commits sits at No. 3 nationally, per 247Sports Composite rankings.
