Notre Dame commitment named nation's top high school linebacker




 

We've known for a while that Notre Dame is getting a good one in 2023 recruiting commitment Drayk Bowen.  Bowen has been fun to follow since committing to Notre Dame over a year ago and playing his high school football not even an hour west of South Bend.

Often times we highlighted Bowen's incredible performances in the backfield at Andrean (Merrillville, Ind.) High School, but he'll be joining Notre Dame to play linebacker.  Just how good is he at that?

Bowen was named the high school recipient of the 2022 Butkus Award on Tuesday.  The award goes to the nation's top linebacker at the high school, college, and professional levels annually.

The Butkus selection committee said of the future Domer:

Prince Kollie also won the high school award in 2020 before signing his national letter of intent with Notre Dame.  Manti Te'o (2012), Jaylon Smith (2015), and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah (2020) all won the collegiate award while wearing blue and gold.
