Elijah Burress, the son of former NFL wide receiver and Super Bowl champion Plaxico Burress, committed to play college football at Notre Dame on Saturday.

The younger Burress, who also is a wideout, is a product at DePaul Catholic High School in Wayne, N.J. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound player had 25 catches for 434 yards and five touchdowns in 10 games last season and ranks as the 36th wide receiver in the 2025 recruiting cycle by 247Sports.

He reportedly chose the Fighting Irish over Duke, James Madison, Marshall, Cincinnati and Liberty, among others.

The 2025 recruiting class for Notre Dame also features cornerback Ivan Taylor, who is the son of Ike Taylor. The elder Taylor was a former teammate of Plaxico Burress with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The elder Burress’ top highlight of his NFL career was catching the game-winning touchdown pass in Super Bowl XLII. He finished his career with 553 receptions for 8,499 yards and 64 touchdowns over 148 career games (138 starts) with the Steelers, New York Giants and New York Jets.
