Notre Dame set to allow spring freshmen enrollees

By Malcolm Moran, USA TODAY

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The construction of the Charlie Weis era at Notre Dame is expected to receive a boost that will allow the Fighting Irish to compete in a changing recruiting landscape.

A limited number of Notre Dame's freshman signees for 2006 are expected to enroll for the spring semester, according to a person familiar with the football program's recruiting policies.


Notre Dame has not yet allowed incoming freshmen to enroll in time for spring practice, an increasingly-used tool (around 35 a year in the six major conferences) that has helped competing schools accelerate development of players such as Ohio State's Maurice Clarett in recent seasons.


Notre Dame has been limited in the past by a careful response to trends in the industry. When other schools developed players through the widespread use of redshirting, the Irish created an application process for a fifth year of eligibility.


The number of early-arriving Irish players is expected to be small, according to the person. Weis was not available Sunday, the day after Notre Dame's 34-31 loss to top-ranked Southern California because his schedule was filled with meetings with recruits.


Reports have indicated that the Irish have already secured 19 oral commitments that will sign letters-of-intent in February.


Penn State loses freshman wideout Williams for season


STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Penn State freshman wide receiver Derrick Williams is out for the season with a broken left arm.


Williams suffered the injury in Saturday's 27-25 loss to Michigan on a kickoff return in which he was tackled by the Wolverines' Carl Tabb with less than four minutes to go in the game.


He will be sidelined three to four months, said Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli, the team's physician.


Williams, one of the nation's top recruits from Greenbelt, Md., will likely need surgery. Against the Wolverines, he had a season-high six catches for 59 yards. The Nittany Lions (6-1, 3-1 Big Ten) dropped four spots to No. 14 in the latest USA TODAY coaches poll.


Williams finished with 22 catches for 289 yards and a TD on the season, starting all seven games he played. He had been one of a slew of freshman who have seen significant playing time at wideout.


Williams also had 22 carries for 105 yards and three scores as coach Joe Paterno sought to get his star freshman more touches. He has also returned 13 kickoffs for a 21.1 average.


Williams' big-play ability and quickness has helped boost a Penn State offense that struggled last season. With Williams gone, fellow freshmen Justin King, Deon Butler and Jordan Norwood will likely see more playing time.
