The NCAA's "early" signing period tipped off today and Mike Brey's Fightin' Irish landed four high school basketball stars!

The class is led by a local product by the name of Demetrius Jackson (photo on the left) -- the Marian High School standout is one of the top point guards in the country -- ranked the #26 prospect overall.
