50/50 with Michigan. Coach visits this week could be important.

Also, FWIW, I wouldn't be surprised to see McKinley and Long end up at UW. McKinley had a great visit there a while back. Long visits them shortly. ND will definitely be in the running with them.

You have 10 "Highs" Big and though ND probably won't get them all, how many spots are left in the class?

Plus we have to leave one for Betiku on signing day.

Personally, I don't see ND landing all of Kareem, Hayes, Hansford, Kemp and Jones. Least likely is probably Jones and Kemp. Big, has all those guys as HIGH.

Edit: To be clear, I think ND lands Kareem and Hayes. I really do. I think after that they take one of the other 3...and will take McCollough, Kelly or Betiku if they want in.

Big, first thanks for all of your posts. I appreciate them.

Is there any schedule of what coaches are going where and who they are visiting? I am curious as to where they are devoting their limited time. Thanks.

Probably 7-9 more guys. Could be/looking like a full class. High just means ND is clearly in the top/final group.

BK is hitting Hayes and then Florida. He will go to bigger targets.

Denson to FL commits and targets. Denbrock entire west coast. Sanford to Cali. Lyght to the DBs in general. Hiestand more local, Kramer for sure. Booker visiting Fuller and Gary. Elston to the LBs, so TX, FL, and NC. Players like Alloway, Okeke, Kelly will all get visits plus some 2017 prospects.

Correct me if I'm wrong Big...but these visits from the coaches is where we might see a kid commit to ND. It seems like follow up visits directly after OVs do that a good amount of the time.

Possibly, they have had a few days to sit on the visit and come up with anymore questions.

- McCulloch described ND as a "perfect fit" and it immediately felt "like home". Hopefully ND can maintain a high standing here. He will visit UF, Stanford and Michigan. Will not cut his list before announce at the UA game. He loved the fans and the whole experience. His mom loved the academics. He was visited yesterday by Elston.

- Betiku set his OV for the WF game, Senior Day.

- Interesting snippet from Marquez Callaway today: Army Bowl a family affair for Marquez Callaway

Quote:
Callaway says a January or signing day decision is likely on tap. If he were to announce right now, the Top247 athlete says only one hat is guaranteed to be on the table.

"Notre Dame," Callaway said. "I do not know of any others at this time."

The Irish have impressed the Peach State native with how well they set their student-athletes up for success during and after their playing days are over.

"I know I will get a degree that will provide me with a good job, but most importantly I love how well they take care of their players," Callaway said.

Those are very interesting comments from Callaway. I posted an article on Callaway a few weeks back that got my attention, and it fit NDs situation very well. Maybe I wasn't as off as I thought in thinking that.

I think Pride and McIntosh are definitely takes. Okeke is probably a take as well, but it could get interesting if he doesn't commit soon. Depends on some other guys.

There's no way we get D Hayes, K Kareem, and Betiku. Not possible.

I get that Manti Te'o, no way he'd go to ND shock the world vibe from Betiku. That DLine would be a nice addition to the class.

If Betiku has decommitted from UCLA - are we currently the favorite?

No but we're in it.

To set the stage for his decommitment: it came after officials to A&M and Florida State. He cancelled his visit to ND to attend A&M-Bama. He has now rescheduled it for 11/14.

So I don't think ND can be considered leaders since he hasn't even visited yet. However, Denbrock visited him on Thursday - the day before he decommitted.

I never realized that LaVar Arrington was his guardian in America. Cool story.

He and his teammate Brandon Burton are JUST what the doctor ordered! We have spent a lot of time at that school after failing to get Malik Henry. Hopefully it pays off and a pipeline can be established.
