Notre Dame enters the fold following a recent visit to the school’s campus. The other programs that made the cut are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and Texas A&M. For the sake of clarity, this new list now eliminates Baylor, Duke, Houston, Michigan State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, TCU, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, and Utah.
