And recruit like a maniac.

Yup. I love it. I'm still a bit cautious. There are a lot of young/new HCs that often get a boost in recruiting early. He's completely knocked it out of the park on D if the class holds together. 

I'd still like to see the same boost on offense though. Carr was a huge get, but I credit Tommy given what I've read and heard from the interviews and articles. Also have some Michigan buddies who say Rees really created a nice bond, but also Michigan completely stepped on their dicks. Overall though, I really think we need to hit home on a few top 10 WRs and RBs. Those have seemed to be elusive for us for a long time, and still. 

I also think NIL has evened up things a bit for us. Biggest thing though is just the need to win. If we win, they will come. Can't get beach slapped by OSU and Clemson this year lol. I don't mind losing, but need to be competitive.

I don’t know. Forever all people did was complain that ND couldn’t do any better than top 8-12 recruiting wise. I’d always argued differently. Freeman has absolutely changed that narrative. So I don’t think this is a new coach recruiting bump. All reports is that he is constantly on the phone and talking to guys. That kids absolutely love him and he seems genuine. Far cry from Kelly. 
NIL I’m sure has helped a little but lots of schools are able spend like crazy and ND is still at the top as we speak. Some kids have vocally said if Freeman wasn’t the coach they wouldn’t have listened.  Also, Freeman was already showing a recruiting bump with the defense under Kelly’s staff last year. This isn’t a one off IMO. 
Agree with most. ND needs to show up and ball out Sept. 3rd.

We'll see. It's early. So I'm not taking a victory lap.

Even if the class holds together, we're likely coming in at 4th-ish. That's still a nice improvement regardless. If we lose any of those top guys (hope we don't), then we may be closer to previous classes. 

NIL has definitely helped ND. We were the best of the non-bag-men schools already. Now it's all out in the open. Shouldn't underestimate this for ND.
