Guest NDgirl09

that was a great article!!! It's sad to say he more than likely won't get to play QB at ND because of Crist and Clausen already coming into the system. Trick plays and stuff would be good though, that'd be sweet.

sometimes i dont understand how some kids take forever to choose what school they are going to..

 

dont they grow up a fan of a team?

if that team offered me i would accept if they were my lifelong favorite team..

 

say notre dame offered me..i would accept instantly..

 

its just weird how so many kids take so long to choose..

i understand its a big life decision, but if you grew up wanting to play for that team, it seems to me like it would be an easy one..

 

i guess its a little different though for me as an ND fan, because if i were a recruit, i would know that if i didnt go pro i would still have a great education

 

and i also understand that some kids just wanna go pro and thats all they care about, but still.. i just always wondered that

Some of these kids grow up big ND fans, and some grow up fans of other schools (like Slaughter and UM) and start liking ND after they get a lot more exposure. And there are a lot of kids who follow teams, but never had the opportunity to go visit a lot of places because of a lot of reasons, so they need to take time to go see a school and learn about it almost from scratch.

 

Unfortunately, there are some elite ones who consider their 'major' to be a ticket to the NFL, so they want to look critically into who is coaching, what scheme they run and how that can best help them develop to get into the draft. Look at Clausen - he chose ND as a 'business decision' becaue he felt Weis was best equipped to develop his QB skills. We have many other selling points with the education as a fall back, but some kids don't feel that is most important.

Wow! Great Stuff ... I may have a new favorite in this class. I have always loved the measurables on this kid, now I am even more excited to see him play after reading this.

How come Scout has him listed at 4.71? I thought he was supposed to be pretty fast, not record breaking fast but upper 4.4's or low 4.5's??? I know Scout is notorious for having bad info, but you would think they wouldn't be that far off, man.

Its not always about being just a fan. Its about teh coaches, how they are towards the recruit. The school and the majors, where you would live. The style fo coach it is, how you fit in with the players. Its not always as easy as just saying im a fan of ND so im going there (sometimes it is) Sometimes some coaches just click with players, and its tough to rule that school out. And horribly, sometimes parents get involved in the negative way and try and persuade a kid to go or not to go to a certain school.

Scout probably has his actual time, not his inflated 4.4 that everyone runs coming out of high school.

 

Actual time is 4.48 electronically at Michigan camp, and 4.51 at ND camp prior to junior season. The 4.71 was at the Army combine on a pulled groin. He can flat run! He is 6'4" and is full speed in two steps.

 

Wait and see what he runs at the AAA game. I believe they time them in the 40.
