"Seantrel and I are real close," Floyd said. "That's just how it is. I'm working on him — we're working on him — to come here. He's a cool guy and a lot like me, kind of a goofball who gets the job done in school. The guy can play. That's how it is."

 

How does that quote from Mike Floyd not get Irish fans excited???

Chuck Norris IS afraid of Seantrel Henderson!

 

I think without a doubt this guy is the one most of us domers wanna land this year. Dont mean to take away from any of the other guys cause there is alot of great talent out there that Im excited about and we have a great shot at them. Denzel McCoy is one of those guys. But, we need a hoss on that o line bad this year, and it just so happens that this year one of the best to come out of high school in a long long time is out there for us to get.

is that not a recruiting violation? i mean I hope it's not and I dont think so, but I didnt think coaches or players could publicly comment on a recruit whether they were friends or not. maybe since they're friends and went to school together it's ok, but i dont think ive seen anyone publicly comment on a recruit that wasnt a relative.

great article though. I like how he said he's a lot like him. I have a feeling that once Floyd's comments hit home with the parents then Seantrel will start thinking more and more about ND. He can go anywhere he wants in the country, but there's not many schools like ND with the football & academics and we're not that far from home.

I noticed in that second article that the bit bout Nd being in the lead for Seantrel was under the heading of "Dont Print That." What is up with that? I hope its not catchy part of this writers articles that basically contains news with no proof behind it. I cant help but over analyze everything bout this recruit. I wanna land this guy more then I wanted Manti Teo.

Im confused. I thought our offers went out only after they think he will pass admissions?

 

At the time the offers went out it may have looked like he would been able to pass admissions. But if he hasn't been diligent in the classromm, it may look completely different now...

Sometimes, we attach offers with caveats. Say, "we're offering you, but you gotta do X, Y, and/or Z to get in." Whether its as simple as taking another year of a foreign language to get to ND's prerequisites, gunning for a certain score on the two big college tests, or maintain/reach a certain GPA, sometimes we do offer borderline kids - for our admissions. Its just that we don't offer the borderline "non-qualifier" types you see recruited by other schools so often, kids that don't meet the NCAA rubric, which is much more lenient than ND's.

 

Some reported examples of borderline guys include Johnathan Baldwin (wanted in initially but didn't get in) and Robert Hughes (did enough to squeak by).

Baldwin is someone who I really wanted to get, and wondered what happened in his recruitment. Being from PA I had seen him a few times on TV and thought we need to get this kid, sucks he went to Pitt but not everyone is ND material on and off the field
