The final recruiting push


Recommended Posts

Seems like there may be some more additional spots available for the final recruiting push.

 

I know ND is going after a CB and OL.

 

There was a new offer out to a few DL.

 

What are people's expectations for the final push now that the NC game is over and recruiting is about to pick up full steam.

If ND had it their way they would finish with NPF, Irvin and BPA. With ASB going to USC that takes him off the board. The next option would be Tuliaupupu. After that you have Keys and Bush at WR, Spencer Webb at TE/DE, and Malik Langham at DE. I believe they round out the class with some sort of combination of these guys. Could only be the first two or Boykin if they don't land Irvin.

I know Irvin postponed his decision due to a family situation that is thought to be serious. Is there thoughts that he is waiting to see how serious the situation is before he decides how important it is for him to stay close to home.

 

In other words, if it ends up not being as serious as first expected, would he still want to come to South Bend?

The reports are that he was set to sign with ND until the stuff with his mother happened. Then he almost signed with USC to stay close to home. Decided to wait it out until Feb.

 

USC probably leads right now because of this, but ND will have their chance to re-win him over starting next week. Irvin's mother, reportedly is doing much better. My gut says Irvin stays close to home now though and ND tries there best to flip Boykin.

Also interested in seeing if any new prospects pop with with the DC settled (someone who liked who Elko vetoed) or if a new assistant is hired and brings over any contacts.

 

I'm curious as well, now that someone from the Elko tree has been hired that guys like tuliaupupu are familiar withI'm wondering if it will help to land him

Solo is on record stating that he had a closer relationship with Lea than Elko, and that this helps ND chances even more. Still gonna be a dog fight with USC

Good to hear, and agree about the dogfight. I see a lot of cb's going usc's way even from the nd guys

I'd agree at this point, late in the game

 

If I were a high end recruit, I don't think I'd sign on the early sign date, because coaches may leave. Elko and Hiestand are perfect examples.

 

Yes, I know that coaches can and have left after the February signing date too, but it sure is a lot easier for them to leave after kids have signed their papers in December.

This will effect NPF's recruitment a little for sure, but considering the type of kid he has been reported to be, it shouldn't surprise anyone if he ends up at ND regardless. Academics is big part of his recruitment, and I don't think HH was the main factor in his ND interest.

 

Let’s hope you are right. This early signing period helped us this year, but you know how skittish our recruits tend to be. It takes a perfect storm of infield success, stability and X factors for us to land top end talent at positions outside of QB, TE and OL.

Depends on what type of recruit I am. If I am a 3 star, yeah I probably would. If I had a dream school, yeah.

 

Others, would probably hold off.
