Updated for this Kraemer guy :) GREAT start to the class. Liam Eichenberg is thought to be a package with Tommy by some. Liam has mentioned playing with Tommy a couple of times in interviews. Kyle Rudolph was a big influence on Tommy choosing ND.

 

Malik Henry may attend the FSU/ND game, after that we may receive news about his plans.

 

DT Bo Peek and DE Jonathon Cooper had great visits as well this past weekend.

Listed under the position safety is Devin Studstill. On the list it shows that he does not have a Notre Dame offer. However on 247 it shows him as having an offer. Can anyone confirm if that is the case or not? I have not heard much about him at all. Could this be a case of the kid saying he has a offer from them but really doesn't.

I was under the impression that he had an offer

I hope we're offering him simply for the name

We have to translate our success into some five star talent at the positions we have trouble with historically. We need a top notch DT, and a top safety. Another SEC fast man corner would also help any class. I like seeing us in the hunt for Texas, Florida and Virginia talent. GO IRISH!

Any complaints about DL recruiting seem a bit silly right now

You can NEVER have enough of them. I want people good enough to jump the freshmen we brought in. Roll em in and roll em out to keep them studs fresh.

 

Agree with the premise but c'mon bud. We have Day, Jones, Rochell, Okwara, Trumbetti, Cage, Hill, etc... Ask FSU's OL how many stars those dudes have

This is not a slight on who we have, but we have had trouble bringing in 5 star DTs, they find a way to stay south.

 

The point is there is no 5 star on that line and they are damn good. You don't need 5 stars to have a heck of a DL. This year's DL has proven that. Would it be nice? Sure but not a necessity.

What? Day and Jones were at one point or another 5 star DT. The final rankings they might have been knocked down from that status because they come from non football power states and that always hurt when it comes to rankings because it just so much harder to evaluate because of the talent level.

Rochell, Cage, and Trumbetti all look really good. Hill has been good in spurts, and we have other young guys like Hayes and Bonner that should play more next year. DL recruiting has been better than we originally thought. Keep em coming though. Recruiting never stops.

just saw that tom loy gave a CB prediction on jawon pass to ND. watched his film and I can not believe how much he reminds me of cam newton, this kid is big time.
Pass IMO is a huge BOOM or BUST prospect and I think with the Wimbush commit in 2015 it allows for ND to take that chance on such a player.

 

Malik Henry is very good and safe IMO, who will be one of the 5 best QB's in the class but the ultimate upside is nowhere near that of Pass but his likely of reaching his ceiling is much more likely.

 

I personally like Shea Patterson the best, just think he's got that Andrew Luck quality about him.

I agree with all of this, I have said it before, but Pass reminds me a lot of Tyrone Swoopes out in Texas. Pass could be great, but he could also be a 5* bust that fails to live up to the 5* hype.

 

Malik Henry is a pretty safe bet at being pretty good at the next level.

 

In terms of potential ceiling: Pass -> Patterson -> Henry

In terms of bust potential: Pass -> Patterson -> Henry

Couldn't agree more.

 

I'm not much of a the BOOM or BUST prospects because why many get caught up in the "what if's" they rarely see the actually likelihood of such prospects actually coming anywhere close to there potential upside is extremely slim.

 

As I said before if the staff is comfortable with the QB's they already have then taking such a risk is much easier but that said there are quite a few QB's I would take before Pass.
