OL, ****, 285 pounds, 6-6
Bishop Gorman High School
Las Vegas, Nev.
Ranked as the top recruit in Nevada, Ronnie Stanley committed to Notre Dame after making an official visit in December, selecting the Irish over Arkansas and Nebraska.
A three-year starter for powerhouse Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Stanley’s solid play on the line helped his team capture three consecutive state championships and deliver a 43-3 record over the last three years.
Stanley’s 6-foot-7 frame and agility gives him a strong mix of size and athleticism, which should play well in Irish coach Brian Kelly’s spread offense. He is still seen as raw and needs more time in the weight room but has great upside.
