For any of you with Twitter, JR Sandlin (@JR_Sandlin) has been tweeting a lot about this "Pot of Gold". Why is this significant? He is ND's new(ish) Recruiting Analyst, formerly from SEC territory.

 

Now, without getting into debates over his past employment, I think this is some curious tweeting (what has the world come to?). Lemme share:

270 to the BIG 270

This is interesting to me. He seems to be hinting at something, but I'm not sure what. One of the main reasons this strikes a chord with me is because of his propensity for tweeting when good news is heading ND's way. For example, just before Nick Watkin's committed, Sandlin tweeted a bunch of shamrocks. It's starting to become common practice for these coaches to do a sort of "bat signal" when a new recruit is about to sign.

 

So what do you guys think? Is all this just a bunch of cryptic b.s.? Could some recruits fall ND's way?

 

(Also, as an interesting aside- 270 is an area code in Kentucky...Elizabethtown, KY fits into this area code.)

They just sent out a ton of recruiting mail. That's what he calls it.

 

that is what I think it is as well, but why put 270? Did they send out 270 letters?

 

As for the symbols and stuff, coaches around the league have been doing that for years now. I think I remember Alford doing something last year a couple times before a recruit committed.

I think we get a new kid this week. Obviously Tranquill is the guy everyone is thinking about.

 

Last time we got a recruit, Sandlin said something about getting a shamrock today...? Then Watkins committed.

 

Last night he said - "Could we see a shamrock this week..?" I'm paraphrasing since I don't have his twitter in front of me, but it's essentially what he wrote.

 

So that shamrock is probably Tranquill since he's already spoken to both ND and Purdue. Tranquill is a 4 star on 247sports now as well. He's a safety on 247sports. Tranquill's at 214 lbs today.

It will be a battle with Bama for Luatua and Elam. Something seems fishy when Tyler said just commit already and how we are in his top 2 the same day.

Luatua was probably just joking, the internet is not as serious business as some make it out to be. And don't worry about the stamps, ND has a little spare change laying around.

The thing I didn't like about Luatua's tweet was the order. This is not exact but it was something to the effect of, here are my top two

 

-Bama

-ND

 

#rolltide #goirish

 

I didn't like that we were listed second.

 

Or you can take it as a positive that he knows how to list alphabetically. I mean, that proves that he's too smart for Bama and he's a sure ND kid....
