ND's Most Wanted - 2010

With Lombard, Martin, and Smith already coming our way... who is left on everyone's top 5.

 

 

I'm not sure who my top 5 would be as of yet but I know I'm putting Barr as my number one right now.... his YouTube clip is beast-like. The kid could be plugged into many positions and dominate.

Sentreal Henderson has to be at the top of my list, along with James Hurst. We need big time OT in this class.

 

Also, we need another true NT, a big time player there. I don't know who that is yet, but hopefully someone.

 

Jake Heaps is also on my list, though I'm highly doubting that will happen. But, maybe the Teo commit will influence him the most.

 

Barr would also be in my top five.

 

So it is as follows:

 

1. Henderson

2. Hurst

3. NT

4. Heaps

5. Barr

It's always fluid but of the prospects left:

 

1. Seantrel Henderson : perhaps the #1 player overall and has the size and athleticism to step right in at a position of dire need.

 

2. Seantrel Henderson : See above. Yes, he is important enough to warrant #1 and #2 status

 

3. Chris Doyle, University of Iowa S&C coach : I know he is not a player but I'm telling you, having lived in Iowa and reading about this guy, he would make monumental changes in the way the team plays. Nothing against the current coach but I don't see how it could be argued that ND plays nasty and physical in its current state.

 

4. 3 DT's: I don't care what their names are, I don't care where they're from. We're not in a position to be ultra picky. Find some guys that will bust their ass and can make the grades and I'll take them.

 

5. Anthony Barr : Anytime USC drools over a kid like they are, you know they've got the right stuff. Plus he has the size and athleticism to play a number of positions on either side of the ball.

Good calls on Henderson and the D-Linement

 

Are we really involved with many DT's right now? I know I've read stuff about Beau Allen but other than that who are we going after?

are we in any conversation with Chris Doyle or are you just wishing?

Honestly I'm not sure where we are at with most 2010 guys. I'm just starting to move past the 2009 class.

 

I NEED MORE TIME!!!!!!

1. Seantrel Henderson: How many opportunities are we going to have with a number one prospect in a need position at a pipeline school. This kid needs to be Irish.

2. (would have put Chris Martin here!!) Dietrich Riley/ (S. from Cass Tech) Would really like a game changing safety.

3. Top 5 QB -Would like to see some more offers go out at this position. I don't think Heaps will decide soon and the some of the best QBs go off the market fast

4. Khairi Fortt- would like to start taking an impact LB every year and everyone is after this kid. He seems to like ND as well.

5 Aramide Olaniyan- Can't remember who brought up the thread with this kid, but I was blown away. Very physical and just fun to watch. Drove up for the junior day really wants and offer.

I totally agree with your first 3, except to say any top 2 QB (read Heaps).

A couple things,

 

First, to all you people saying nose tackle? I think you mean DE. Nose tackles on are roster are Newman, Williams, Stockton, H. Williams. Our DE is so much in more need of players. We need playmakers on the outside. PRESSURE ON THE QB. Sadly enough, it's one position we haven't targeted that many people outside of Chance Carter.

 

Second, I'm just not on the Heaps bandwagon. I wouldn't mind getting him but I just don't know actually how good he is. Maybe his senior year blows me away but I think we need to go after the other big guys, particularly from the South and West to get a gamer at QB. To Heaps credit, he is a gamer. He does perform well in games but at camps he really hasn't impressed all too much.

 

Third, WE NEED A PLAYMAKING SAFETY.

Top ten for me:

 

1. Seantrel Henderson

2. Anthony Barr

3. James Hurst

4. Chance Carter

5. Corey Cooper

6. Kyle Prater

7. Deitrich Riley

8. Sean Parker

9. C.J. Feiderowicz

10.Tai-ler Jones

 

Lombard and Chris Martin would have been top 5 had they not committed yet.

I think we need more playmakers. We have two with Floyd and Tate but we really don't have any other "playmakers" on the field. Yet.

 

I think that will change in 2009.

 

Id say we have 4 on offense Floyd, Tate, Rudolph & Allen -- Rudolph will make huge strides next year and Allen will be awesome if he's used right esp screen game

 

Id say we have 6 on defense Walls, Blanton, Fleming, H. Smith, & now Teo -- Walls was our biggest playmaker in 07, Blanton made some big plays, Fleming showed great promise and will continue to get better, same goes with EJ, H. Smith is going to be light years better (great athleticism), and TE'O will make plays no doubt here.

 

Id say we have 4 on Sp Teams Anello, S. Brown, K. McCarthy, & Motta -- Anello has proven it again & again, S. Brown gives us a threat at punt blocking, K. McCarthy is a sure tackler, & Motta is going to be a Sp Teams stud.

This is not very technical, BUT I would like to get a pipeline in the state of Texas so Reggie Wilson and Darius White, as well as Seantrel Henderson (he weighs 320 and runs a 4.7 forty), Jake Heaps (or Pete Thomas), Lamarcus Joyner (DB from Miami, not offered yet), Anthony Barr, and to steal someone from USC or Florida. I just think that would be great.
