2021 Recruiting Prospects


Big23Head

Recommended Posts

It's too bad that Kelly needs in person visits while other schools seem to be getting commitments without them even for out of state recruits.

 

What can Kelly do differently to compete?

 

ND is a smaller, private, Catholic school in South Bend, IN. If you aren't into ND somewhat to begin with you need visits. That said, they need to do whatever they can to show these kids the academics, football program, and campus to get them to at least wait to see it in person.

 

They are staying on several committed prospects. If things open up in the fall it will get interesting.

Is it getting harder and harder for ND to sell kids the longer ND doesn’t win a championship? Also, is it harder for Nd to have a coach like BK who hasn’t won anything at the D-1 level? It’s hard for the factors you mentioned. But I’m beginning to think ND is going to have to pull a rabbit out of the hat on both things I’ve mentioned.

I keep seeing on twitter how black athletes feel like they’re just used for their athletic ability by their schools. If they feel that way, start looking at ND, Stanford, Nwestern, even Vandy more. Those Schools care about developing you athletically and academically. You can’t say you want to be serious about academics and keep going to these football factories.

It's basically been Clemson, OSU, and Alabama (along with GA) in the playoffs.

 

So you are saying all the other D1 coaches are all sinking except for those four teams?

I am as guilty of this as much as anyone else but let's keep this thread focused on individual 2021 recruits. We can start another thread to comment on Brian Kelly's overall recruiting

What I’m saying is all I here about is how hard it is to recruit at ND. Weather, academics. whatever.. Each year that passes that Nd hasn’t won a Natty is another year that these guys become younger. Most of these kids have never seen ND be dominant. And with BK never winning a Natty or being able to sell a championship besides at Grand Valley State, I was asking the question is it getting tougher to bring in top 20 kids anymore? Besides the 40 year degree, what else can Nd offer kids from all over. Tv viewership is gone, everyone plays on tv in some capacity, running for the title is gone, that hasn’t happened since a Reagan, no to weather, no to hot California girls, no to a party. What else can ND truly sale if they haven’t won in 20+ years, and they have a coach who has never won at this level or whose own last championship is almost as long as ND’s. Thats all I’m asking.

ND was a smaller, private, Catholic school for Holtz, Devine, Parseghian, Leahy and Rockne. Excellence is achieved by special people. Maybe it is not only the coaches but the administrators above them at ND. Clemson wasn't Clemson before Dabo, Bama went through a drought from 1993 to 2008, Ohio State has always had advantages over the rest of the Big 10 but Urban Meyer took them to another level. Kelly is entering year 11. It won't last much longer. Lets hope the administration goes all in and rewards a loyal fan base that has supported the team through 31 years of no national titles with a coach that will not be denied in any way, shape or form!

Tressell was pretty damn good himself. OSU has been dominant for awhile

Tressel was very good but OSU went from 1969 through 2001 without a national title. 34 seasons. It took Tressel to get it done. My point is it will take someone special at ND also.

Any reason that Kelly is just now making an offer to Dallas Turner (High 4-Star, Top 50 DE from St Thomas Aquinas in Florida)? Kelly seems a little late to the party since even Stanford, with their more stringent academic requirements, offered back on April 4th.

 

Was it not wanting recruits from Florida?

Any chance that recent RB offers Logan Diggs and Tavierre Dunlap are 3-stars who are under rated and are actually 4-star talent?

 

Or is Kelly & Co having to settle for 3-star RBs now that Chip Long is gone?

 

Maybe, senior years are a big deal for kids. Maturing and all that. I think Diggs may have shared carries with someone last year too, so that could change things being the main guy now. Dunlap seems pretty solid.

No clue here, seems odd timing.

Looks like 2021 CB Ryan Barnes just committed per 247. Mickens getting his work in on the trail. Barnes had offers from Clemson, LSU, Georgia, Oklahoma, USC, Michigan, Florida, Florida State and several others.

 

Ya saw some of the post on Instagram. Seems they are continuing to add size (or lengthy) in backfield. Welcome board Ryan!

Barnes was a great get! DBs has been a weakness and it appears that Mickens is making progress.

 

Wondering if Big or anyone else has predictions for how the class will finish out and if you have any potential flip candidates.

 

Right now predictions are hard. With so many kids committing early and feeling pressure to do so, there will be decommits. I don't mean ND, although it could happen, but other schools. They need a solid RB, they need to land a solid larger WR (strike while Boykin and Claypool are fresh), and the rest will fill out.

 

I'm excited to see Buchner play in a higher division this year, that will get RB and WR attention too.

 

Guys I could see landing at ND: Rocco Spindler, Christian Lewis, Prince Kollie, Kaleb Edwards, Titus Mokiao-Atimalala, Jayden Thomas. All would be strong pick ups

This kid may be a visit away from committing to ND. The way he has worded some of his answers is coincidental or telling
