Starting with a monumental win over then-No. 1 Clemson at home in South Bend, it has been quite the month of November for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football program thus far. And things only got better this week with news of future Irish teams to come.

In quite the turn of events, 4-Star cornerback recruit for the Class of 2021, Philip Riley Jr., recently announced his intentions to de-commit from the USC Trojans and commit to the Irish.

What's the only thing better than landing a 4-Star cornerback recruit? It would have to be stealing his interest away from long-time rival USC and bringing him directly into the Notre Dame family.

And while a Class of 2021 recruit may feel like a distant thought in the future, it's the exact side of the ball that the Irish can use for future improvement behind an offense that is rolling right now.
