Elijah Burress, the son of NFL star Plaxico Burress, has decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and attend Notre Dame for his college football career. Standing at 6 feet 1 inch tall, Elijah is a junior wide receiver at DePaul Catholic High School in Wayne, New Jersey. His commitment to Notre Dame adds a significant boost to the school’s already impressive recruiting class for 2025.
Notre Dame has also secured Ivan Taylor, the son of former NFL player Ike Taylor and a cornerback, as part of their recruiting efforts. Ike Taylor was a teammate of Plaxico Burress during his time in the NFL.
Plaxico Burress had a successful NFL career after playing college football at Michigan State. He played for the Steelers, Giants, and Jets before retiring from the game. One of his most memorable moments was catching the game-winning touchdown pass in Super Bowl XLII while celebrating with his son on the field.
Elijah’s decision to attend Notre Dame reflects the continuation of his family’s legacy in football and is sure to be a valuable asset to the team in years to come.
The addition of Elijah Burress and Ivan Taylor to Notre Dame’s recruiting class will undoubtedly help solidify their position as one of the top teams in college football for 2025.
