Ceyair Wright:
Did you watch the Rose Bowl?
You can start for ND next year, or you can sit on the bench for two at USC.
ND has been in the playoffs twice; USC has never been there.
How big of a stage do you want?

Honest question: Does anyone think that four classes of these types of recruits can compete with Alabama, Clemson, and OSU? I donít think so.

Yes. Make no other changes and Put a top notch qb on ND and many of the playoff/championship games look much different, especially the recent ones.

ND needs to work on finding a top QB fairly consistently and work on making sure there are no to few lapses in quality depth with ALL position groups.

If you can do that with the recruiting that they have been doing lately, I think they can compete and beat the best teams.

From just a pure football standpoint I think ND would have gotten him, but he is an actor also, so it makes all the sense in the world for him to stay in socal. He is going to be lebron james' son in Space Jam 2.

I agree a top level QB would be huge. Talent attracts talent, simple as that. Bring a Clausen or Quinn to ND again and WR will show up. Buchner may be that and it’s really too bad he didn’t get to show it this last season due to covid.

I think ND is really close. They need to land ~2 more players EACH year to get there. Imagine Shaun Wade and Lathan Ransom in NDs secondary this year. Then maybe Jalen McMillan another weapon on offense. Must land a couple of these higher level guys over a couple of the current guys. Imagine having a Jaylon Smith with a project guy like JOK that pans out. Or Hamilton and a Julian Love.

NDs biggest problem is they haven’t yet put it ALL together. At least one position group falls off the rails every couple of years it seems.

As of today ND needs their current WR to get healthy and join the current class. In the current class 2 CBs and both Safeties have to be hits barring some major growth this off season from a couple on the current roster. They need a couple of transfers this off season to keep them a top 10 team.

So Big, with the announcement of Freeman as the new DC, do you see a quick hit impact with some of the difference makers you highlight or is it a more a wait and see after year 1 in his system. I know Kelly stipulated the Rover position would remain and see no issues with Freeman accommodating, or else he wouldn't have accepted the job, but with his coming from Cincy and not being a factor for a lot of high 4 or 5* kids, will this be enough to turn the tide and gain immediate traction?
Also any news on Diggs? What's your Crystal Ball telling you?
Thanks as always and GO IRISH!

At this point I think the 2021 class is done. Most difference makers are decided or likely donít qualify to get into ND this far in the process. Ceyair Wright would be the only one but he had his reasons to stay west. Itís on to transfers and 2022.

I believe Diggs already signed with ND.
