Jan 24th Jr Day Notes


Recommended Posts

1) WR - Tai-ler Jones from GA (son of former ND player Andre Jones) received an offer putting him at 15 offers. He was overwhelmed when offered and he & his father had to hold back their emotion. They were speechless. He wants to finish things up around spring. He's also a highly regarded baseball player (Thought about committing b/c the offer was so overwhelming, but he wants to check some more things out before deciding on a school)

 

2) WR - Kyle Prater from IL (cousin of former ND player Carlyle Holiday) received an offer putting him at 7 offers. Like Jones, he was also overwhelmed by the offer. (Wants to decide after he takes some officials and finishes his Sr year)

 

3) OL - James Hurst from IN (currently offered) really liked the new OL coach Verducci. Really wanted to meet him. Likes CW approach to recruiting and was told to take his time.

 

4) OL - Christian Lombard from IL (verbal commit to ND) didnt recruit as much as he was planning, but loved talking with the new OL coach.

 

5) DE - Chance Carter from IL (currently offered) loves everything about ND so far and is concentrating on learning as much as possible. Thought about committing, but has 1 more visit (to stanford) before deciding. ND is ahead of Stanford/Wisconsin

 

6) DE - Blake Leuders from IN (interested prospect) still looking for an ND offer, had a great time.

 

7) OL - Josh Davis from OH (interested prospect) still looking for an ND offer, talked/watched film with OL coach. Had a good time

 

8] ATH - Corey Cooper from IL (currently offered) couldnt make it to ND due to something with his family. Was a lil' upset he didnt make it and apparently was thinking about committing on the trip if he went. ND is at the top of his list (weird though considering he's still an Illinois soft verbal) - will be visiting Illini, OSU, and then more than likely ND in the near future.

 

9) WR - Daniel Smith from IN (bro-in-law of Gerome Sapp) has been rumored to receiving an ND offer and committing on the spot. No confirmation from any boards yet, and it seems like they're trying to get ahold of DS for confirmation.

 

10) QB - Jake Heaps from WA (currently offered) trims his list to 10 and ND is on it. He was not attending to Jr Day but will visit in February. This isnt related to Jr Day, but he's a Junior and it happened on Jr Day, so I figured I'd include it.

 

- ND had a player panel that was answering the recruits questions

- alot of recruits like CW's approach at not putting any pressure on them to commit esp if they're local or have ND ties

- Most of the Jr Day attendees went to the UCONN/ND game afterwards

- Illinois connection seems like Carter, Cooper, Prater, & CJ Fed are all good friends kinda like the Cali Connection (Wood, Evans, & Moore)

One thing is for sure, 2010 is going to be a monster class for ND. There's a good chance we will come away with 3 WR with 4* or higher. OT is looking great as well as OG. At least on offense this class will be huge. So the thin numbers for 09 are no big deal and they arent that bad to begin with.

it could be huge on the defense too, what with us in on Chris Martin, Chance Carter, Anthony Barr, etc

Yep. Barr's uncle works for ND, his mom went to St. Mary's, dad lives 45 minutes from South Bend. It would be a shocking crime if he goes anywhere else. Im confused with whats going on with Martin. He was really bummed when Jappy got canned but is still open to ND. He's publicly wondering why ND hasnt bothered to contact him since they got rid of Jappy. I dont get it but someone from the Irish needs to get on the phone quick.
