Notre Dame received yet another important commitment on Sunday when Folsom (Calif.) High School 2023 wide receiver Rico Flores opted for the Irish over Ohio State and Georgia. One of the more productive wide receivers in the 2023 class, Flores brings a healthy resume that rivals the best in the nation.

As a junior, Flores caught 81 passes for 1,157 yards (14.3 YPC) and 11 touchdowns. 

When you listen to Folsom head coach Paul Doherty, it would seem those numbers don't do justice to just how special of a player the California standout is. Doherty pulled down the curtain for what makes the star pass catcher tick.

One thing is certain, Flores isn’t your typical seventeen year old kid.

“He’s not a kid who needs to be entertained; he's all business but doesn’t take himself too seriously,” said Doherty. “The versatility he brings to the field is truly unmatched but I know Notre Dame stood out because they have the same mindset.

“Notre Dame said let’s go, let’s get to work and that’s all Rico knows how to do.”
