The topsy-turvy world of recruiting can giveth as quick as it can taketh away.

Notre Dame experienced that on Wednesday, losing a recruit then gaining one in the Class of 2018 in a span of just a few hours.

Four-star wide receiver Braden Lenzy de-committed from Notre Dame on Wednesday afternoon, flipping to his home-state program of Oregon.

Lenzy pledged Irish in February over the Ducks, Stanford and USC, along others.

Shortly thereafter, news broke that four-star tight end George Takacs out of Naples, Fla. chose Notre Dame over offers from Florida, Florida State and Georgia, among others.

The 6-foot-6, 230 pounder is rated No. 11 among tight ends in the Class of 2018 by 247sports.com, a national recruiting service.

Takacs is the latest in a string of elite tight ends to pledge their services to Notre Dame, joining Alize Mack, Brock Wright and Cole Kmet in the last few recruiting cycles.

Notre Dame's recruiting class for 2018 now numbers 12 players and is ranked No. 6 in the country by 247sports.com.
