It sounds like Elston played a big role in Ford’s recruitment. Almost as if he told Ford he will be staying. I don’t know that he did say he’ll be around but that’s the impression I’m getting from...

Adding some perspective, the last defensive lineman who enrolled and played for ND who was ranked as highly on 24/7 was Sheldon Day. He was in the 2012 recruiting class. Tuitt was more highly rated...

True.
I wonder how those who do the rankings interpret the results over the last two weeks.
