Elijah Burress, the son of Plaxico Burress, has recently decided to play college football for Notre Dame. Standing at 6-foot-1, Elijah is a junior wide receiver at DePaul Catholic High School in Wayne, New Jersey. His commitment to Notre Dame is a major win for the team, as they are building one of the best recruiting classes for 2025. Another notable recruit for Notre Dame is Ivan Taylor, the son of former NFL player Ike Taylor, who was a teammate of Plaxico Burress during his career.
Plaxico Burress had a successful NFL career playing for the Steelers, Giants, and Jets after playing college football at Michigan State. He is best known for catching the game-winning touchdown pass in Super Bowl XLII and celebrating with his young son, Elijah, on the field. Elijah’s commitment to play for Notre Dame adds to the family’s legacy in football and is a testament to his talent and potential as a player.
The Burress family’s influence in the football world continues to be felt as Elijah follows in his father’s footsteps and takes the next step in his football career. Notre Dame is thrilled to have him on board and looks forward to seeing what he will accomplish on the field.
