I also think he will graduate from HS this year because he was thinking about re-classifying. I could be wrong on that though.

So, brief thoughts on this class. It could be smaller than the 2019 class. Right now I would put it at about 20 total. ND is definitely making their first level evals and getting the offers out. Seeing several unranked or lower ranked guys getting offers now (along with the high level guys, don't worry) but they look like really good players. Maybe not quite the Kyle Hamilton level but guys that should definitely increase in rankings and offers moving through summer into fall. I think we will see the same thing as last year and ND will hope to have ~75% of its class done rolling into the fall. Once again, spring OVs will be a big deal and provide a clear picture.

I'm excited to see what RB coach Taylor can do on the recruiting trail. ND needs to land very good RB this year. Also extremely excited about him coaching Kyren Williams.

Really hoping Alexander Ehrensberger makes it to an Opening Regional. I want to see him test and compete against solid competition. Maybe the German competition is good but I'd like to have some comparison to players over here.

As it sits today, I really like NDs position with WR, OL, DL, and S. RB will need to be figured out as Coach Taylor gets on the trail and finds his guys. I think ND can be picky at CB so I'm watching the OVs here. LB is another that ND can and will be very picky as they may only take one.

Alright...so what is next? Recruiting for 2020 is really starting to pick up and with junior days on the horizon we should expect more traction/news in the next few weeks to a month. Also, official visits start happening in April.

Hard to predict when commitments might happen, but junior days and official visits will likely result in a few pledges.

Sure, hope some of these stud jumiors start committing.

I would imagine over the next month or so we see another commit or 2.

O-line usually commit earlier. I'll guess we get 1 or 2 in the next couple months

A few guys to keep in mind:

Rylie Mills, Zak Zinter, Latham Ransom, Cullen Coleman.

Do you know if Cullen Coleman is a take right now? I would guess not given the small-ish class size and guys on the board with legitimate interest in ND, but I have no clue.

Honestly, I think he is. The staff seems to love his potential down the road.

Two potential guys with him and the German is kinda risky

Way too early to look at rankings. Trust the staff on early commits. They’ve barely even gotten into rankings. Coleman holds offers from Michigan and Ohio State.

I meant more so down the road prospects which people have said rather than rankings. I really don't care much about therankings right now. Like you said too early. But I've read on them they need some time to develop. Taking 2 like that is more risky. Unless we also land 1 immediate impact type stud to go with them

This will be interesting to watch. He is a great fit at the school and appears to have nice skills and ability. I'm always hesitant about NY football especially compared to the other offers that went out to similar players but they play in AL, TX, and NC. Either way you get this kid on campus, work him out a little, get a feel for it. They don't need to push for his commitment yet. Coleman will also be competing at the Opening regional.

ND recently offered 247 Composite 5-star Marcus Rosemy (#26 overall, #4 WR) out of St. Thomas Aquinas in FL. While he is most definitely a long shot, he said he wants to take an unofficial visit to ND in the spring. Get him on campus and see what happens. It will definitely be tough pull, though, as all three FL programs (UF, FSU, Miami) are going after him hard, along with the usual suspects.

ND used to get quite a few guys from Aquinas, although the only recent ones I can think of are Corey Holmes ('14) and Ben Turk ('09).

Drew White. Would be good to at least get back into that school some.

Some more names are Xavier Carlton and Xavier Watts, now that they are visiting in March. Two names with heavy Irish interest.

Sam Young and Cody Riggs a bit before. Used to be a bigger pipeline, but I think really dropped off after the Weis era, and especially now that we've de-emphasized Florida and focused more on Georgia.

Should have also mentioned Justin Robinson, assuming the staff would accept his commitment this early. Visiting for junior day later this month.

Fwiw, Coleman received an offer from Bama today.
