Default Will Shipley 2021 RB

Shipley is rated the #1 back in the 2021 class and just came off a great visit to ND. We have a realistic chance at landing him. Pairing him with Tryee would be amazing. Recruitniks are calling him a potential Christian Mcaffrey type talent.

If anyone has any other info or seen film of Shipley fill us in.

To be fair, thatís what ND is pitching to him. I donít think itís a black and white thing. They are similarly built and have similar playing styles. Especially coming out of HS.

From watching his film, he reminds me of Peyton Hillis..

You ever think that the comparison to Christian McCaffrey might be because our RB coach mentored McCaffrey at Stanford?

Tell that to the local paper:

Per the Charlotte Observer: "247 Sports ranks Shipley among the top-50 players in the class of 2021 and No. 2 in North Carolina. It calls Shipley the No. 1 recruit overall nationally as an all-purpose back.

Capone said he marvels at Shipleyís speed, balance and ability to catch the ball. Recruiters often compare Shipley to a high school version of Carolina Panther Christian McCaffrey."

I think any junior in high school would be thrilled with this comparison.

Got to get this guy. Since ND can always count on getting top O linemen, having a deep roster of 4 and 5 star RB's is crucial to me. When is the last time ND signed back to back RB's like Tyree and potentially, Shipley? Love the passing game but having a strong running game is something that can be relied on game in and game out.
