This is a big deal. Would be huge

Big, I am starting to think it is only a matter of time until Shipley commits. I don't if you have noticed this in the past, but when 247 starts pumping out a bunch of articles about a certain player it ends up being where they know he is committing soon or he is a silent. A lot of Shipley articles from the II staff out recently.

Another board mentioned some conflict with our secondary coaches and opinions about the type of recruits we should go after. More specifically body type(taller DB's) vs natural ability who may be smaller. Don't know which is the answer, but hate to come up short on bodies at a position especially if a 4-5 star wants in but isn't tall enough.

 

I have seen a little about this as well, but I am not 100% sure if it is accurate. A lot of it had to do with Clark Phillips and if they cooled on him. I have no reason to believe they didn't very much want him.

 

All and all, I do think they value length in general though - which is fine - but you have to land the kids then.

Yeah. Shipley's own quotes right after the visit and now are everything you could want to hear from NDs standpoint. As of today if feels like he is letting things settle to make sure he is 100% and focusing on finishing the season. Then he will finalize things. Unless he has a school closer to home that could potentially sway him, I would say he is NDs to lose right now.

I agree. Now let’s get some top 100 corners and linebackers.

Sorry if I missed it, but is there a general class breakdown by position for 2021? I know it is very early and things can change with leaving early, transfers etc.

 

I have guesses on the front page of this thread but it will change with guys leaving/staying and the finish of the 2020 class.

I see we just offered Aaron Armitage from NJ. 4* DE from NJ with an impressive offer list. Does ND have a shot? Seems like he's pretty high on OSU.

 

Yes. ND probably leads instantly now. Been the offer he’s been coveting, but ND essentially told him a few months back they didn’t have room which led many to believe they view him as an interior player. With that said, the fact they are offering now means they’ve decided he’s a take most likely. I’d be very shocked if he didn’t pick ND if they want him.

A couple of years under Balis and you won’t be able to recognize them...

He's a stud and will be a great recruiter of other top players. That 49-yard TD was all him taking a short pass of the middle and putting in the jets to the end zone.

 

I was at the game and that was a gutting loss. I’m a bigger Elder fan than ND, but it hurt slightly less knowing it was an ND recruit that beat them.
