He's home! Chansi Stuckey has done it again, bringing in Class of 2024 Wide Receiver Micah Gilbert. Micah picked Notre Dame over the likes of South Carolina, Michigan, Pitt, UNC, and Virginia Tech! Gilbert is a 6-foot-2 wide receiver from Charlotte, North Carolina where he plays his high school ball at Charlotte Christian. His junior year he put up 39 receptions for 486 yards and 6 touchdowns, but missed the end of the year with a wrist injury (according to 247sports.com). Another cool note about Micah is that he is actually the cousin of Darrelle Revis, who was an NFL Hall of Famer. Many thought this would push him to playing at Pitt, where Darrelle played.





After watching the film on Micah, here are some thoughts:

At 6'2" (some sites even list him at 6'3"), he has a frame that resembles a lot of talented receivers. Even before his senior year he is coming in above 200 pounds which is a good sight to see. I'd look for him to want to throw on a bit more weight before making his move to South Bend in 2024.


His film shows great ability to make plays on the ball. Several times he is able to run his defender off and make athletic moves back to the ball, mostly on drop-outs or back shoulder fades. Another thing that impressed me was his ability to reach outside his frame and make true hands catches. This is pivotal for a receiver with his frame as he will be asked to come across the middle and make difficult catches in the heart of his defense. He is also great along the sideline with his breaks out of routes and his awareness and body positioning.


Class Wrap-Up

Micah is the second 4 star receiver to join the 2024 Irish recruiting class (Isaiah Canion), and they join recent 5 star Cam Williams. They of course are joined by C.J. Carr who seems to be playing a pivotal role in strengthening this class in positions of need. This is of course a testament to Chansi Stuckey's recruiting ability, and I don't see it stopping anytime soon. Stuckey has proved himself as someone that can get the players he likes, even dipping into California and Texas (which was not a frequent occurrence on previous staffs).
