As always, I acknowledge upfront that my opinion means absolutely nothing, but meh and a half to the recent ND recruiting developments.

 

Guys, no one should worry until Oklahoma expresses concern over these commits. He has an eye for 3* talent.

 

Okie, what do you make of the latest pledge?

I admit to having little knowledge on how to assess recruits. It's my thinking the Rivals, 24/7, Scout, and ESPN have people who do that type of thing full time. So, I do rely on their opinions. It seems to me that BVG (1) may have a different set of guidelines on which to judge recruits than many of those services, (2) may believe his ability to judge recruits is better than those services, (3) probably knows which recruits are actually seriously considering ND and which are not, leading him to take early some of the "lesser stars" types players because the four and five star guys really aren't leaning toward ND, and (4) is clearly making me nervous. I don't like being nervous.

I like him, good athlete to have in the DB. I trust BK and his eye for talent, if this kid is a 3-star then im the easter bunny.

Agree with what some have said. I trust the coaches eye for talent and developing the kids. I also think he's a great athlete who might be a better safety than corner.

 

I like us getting these kids early than scrambling because the high rated guys go elsewhere.

Easily the best overall post in months.... I can see it now:

 

"Guys, don't sleep on this sleeper of a player. Everyone's been sleeping on him and now they wont sleep anymore now that he's an ND commit. I'm choosing this sleeper for my sleeper of the year to make an immediate impact."

 

Keep doing your thing Okie. We love it!

From coach D over at ISD

 

" I looove this kid, 5-10 years ago he was the type of kid Tressel would have scooped up before anyone knew who he was. Then 2or 3 years later the kid is starting and all big 10. Love this kid and love that ND is hitting ohio hard with success."

 

Its obvious the group of three stars is being recruited simply to annoy echo---;)

 

We will take 20, the bigger fish will come downstream and we will have a balanced class---for those of you having anxiety over the 3 stars please check the FSU commit list coming off a national title--its loaded with 8 - 3 star players already.

 

We have to give the staff there due---BVG is doing the evaluating here and likely knows what he's doing.

Doesn't annoy me. I've kind of come to expect it.

 

And as for those 3* guys? A good indication of gem quality lies in an offer list. Check those out when you get time. Home states while you're at it.

It is still early..Some of these guys might receive more offers as the years go on, especially if they start going to more camps and visit schools. It might be better to check later on for some of these guys

I see the comments here and while I think we can all agree to wish for the best/highest-starred recruits to commit, it all comes down to trust. Do you or do you not trust BK and staff to evaluate talent. Personally, I trust his results and the NFL seems to feel the same way. I trust Kelly and company to offer quality kids regardless of their "rankings." Go team 3-star! Who's with me?

no one was after McKenzie before we went after him ....

 

ultimately, everyone here is just making their best guesses .... for fun.

 

we have had peeps on the board say Johnny Manziel and Tyler Eifert weren't that good. But in fairness, it was a blind guess.

 

but it should show you these coaches have a better idea of what they need and what they want.

FWIW, it was reported when BVG saw his film for the first time he asked how he hadn't seen it prior because he was a local kid. He immediately targeted him after that. I'm not saying I love the pick ups, of course we all want higher, but these are the lower rated guys the staff has specifically targeted and are getting them.

 

Also just for comparison sake FSU, the defending national champs, are ranked #10 according to 247. They have (1) 5*, (3) 4*, and (8 ) 3* with an avg recruit rating below NDs right now. Also FSU's 3* players don't have the best offer list either. Now they (FSU and ND) have the depth guys they want and they go after the big guys. Just my opinion.
