Notre Dame remains in the mix for one of the top pass rushers in the country for the class of 2025.

4-star EDGE London Merritt released his top 12 programs on Tuesday afternoon. The Fighting Irish made the cut alongside some of the top programs in the country: Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Tennessee, LSU, Florida State, Florida, Texas A&M, Colorado, North Carolina and USC.

Here’s the announcement:

Merritt is an elite prospect in the class of 2025. He’s the No. 56 overall player and the No. 8 EDGE in the country, per 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 11 player from the state of Georgia.

He attends Woodward Academy in Atlanta, Georgia. He’s listed at 6-foot-3, 230 pounds.

It’s still very early in the 2025 class, but the Irish are off to a good start. They already have a commitment in this class from 4-star defensive lineman Davion Dixon.
