On rivals it says Gray has set his announcment date and stated which schools have made the cut. I am assuming we have made the cut, but does anyone have any info on this?

I just read the article that he is making the decision on Thursday. I am split on if he will be ND or not. It appears that is basically down to ND, South Carolilna, Florida State and Tennessee. He also lists Florida and NC State. To me, it appears to be a S. Carolina and ND race. SC has location in their favor. He is from SC and goes to alot of the SC games and practices. South players "tend" to stay close to home. Obviously that is going against us and can't blame the kid for that. But as far as what is going for us: He drove all the way from SC to South Bend a few weeks for a junior day, you don't do that unless you have strong interest. The ever-so-popular Jimmy Clausen connection, he called Jimmy on his way home to tell him how the junior day went. He also is scheduled to come to ND for the BG game--which is after his announcement. ND is currently a far better program than South Carolina. Last, and certainly not least, is that Charlie Weis is personally recruiting Gary Gray.

 

My guess is that he is ND but I don't know that for sure.

What's anyones gut feel on this guy? I know there is a danger to read too much into anything but interesting announcement comes 23rd after 1st ND Practice. To be honest the whole situation is exactly like our CIA and the old Soviet Union. CIA would scan the pictures of who was next to who on top of Lenins tomb to figure out the changes in Soviet leadership and who's a rising star or on the outs.

 

Coach seems bent on filling the D side eeds first, as if to say kid don't wait to verb late cause we are full. (?)

Hey Broker man this sounds like its going to be good news.I think i haven't read a post from you that says {My Guess is ND}lol :lol:.Just joking..What you wrote makes alot of since.I'm thinking on the same line.I believe Wies wants him to commit early and be at the B&G game to help recruit other players that may show up.

I agree with what broke said (as always) and I think it would be a HUGE suprise in my opinon...I disagree with Jones being a suprise he is a Texas kid and Texas doesnt lose texas kids...I think this will be real insight in to whether JC has the pull we all think he does...I am assuming here he is on board, and if Gray comes then that not only proves JC is in but it shows the talent he will be helping to bring

I am glad Andre's decision wasn't a surprise to you, because when I heard the news, I was floored. I really thought he was a domer…..oh well, I have been wrong before, and I will be wrong again.

 

Back to the GG topic - I do not believe one way or the other that this will give us better insight on JC's intentions. I know these guys are talking, but in the long run, they are their own men….and this decision is one that impacts family, and friends as well as football.

 

If Gary chooses ND, I look at Weis as the reason…not JC.

I don't think it would be a surprise if Gray did not choose ND. Most probably wouldn't even consider us to be the favorite. It's more difficult to grab kids out of the south. Yes, we have done it many times. but the odds increase for kids in the south. they tend to be very rooted.

 

that being said, I still think he is Irish. but I sure wouldn't put any money on it.

I was snooping around some of the SC boards, and they are pretty sure he is going to SC. Apparently he has been spending a lot of time on campus and a few people are claiming that his calls to JC are to recruit him not the other way around.....

Hey irishguy nice info. :) It is possible.I know I will be shot at but i am not big on JC. I see no worry about a QB slot in 2007 with what we have coming in 2006. I am almost willing to bet weis feels that way. If JC comes in fine if not well maybe even finer? :lol: OK we load the boat 25 full this year. 15+? after that. Let's chase a QB then.

 

Coach roughly says you have a QB and receiver? Well....l pass your stacked with backs then run, it's not exactly Rocket science.

It seems like a good sign that he is planning on attending the B&G game even after his announcement... why would he come back to South Bend if he announces to go to SC.. doesn't make sense to me

Shamrock83, it could be that he chose to attend the game before he made up his mind. If he chooses SC, then I would expect him to cancel the trip to the B&G game.

 

Sir John, I agree with you (mostly :) ). I do not think JC will make or break this class. If JC chooses ND, then he will likely bring with him several top recruits that we might not have a shot at. If JC chooses not to come to ND, then CW and staff will have to work a bit harder in recruiting.

 

JC may be the difference between a top 5 - 10 class, and the #1 class (running away).

Well, Irish great reply I probably stand alone?

 

As I look at it what the heck does this top 5 recruiting class mean? Is their an award for this other then Boardchat room bragging rights? Some will be good some will bottom up.

 

Now everyone here is willing to give lip service to Coach Weis saying "I want my kind of guys I don't care about ratings" But that is it. Just lip service.

 

 

Aaron Nagel, Rivals says is """"unranked and not currently listed in Rivals top 100."""" Why should we even be excited he is aboard?

 

Let's look at Kerry Neil, all I can find is a brief "Lemming says he has five star potential." Thanks for the "potential" Mr lemming. :lol: It's like lemming heard Weis wants him so elivated the kid slightly to seem aware.

 

But Coach is waaaaaaaay ahead of these guys, they just have to waike up to that fact.

 

We fans are chasing something we can never grasp, smoke, as to whom is best.

 

Here's two commits Nagel etx, I never heard of. They haven't played Senior ball yet. The paid guys hardly ever heard of them but Weis wants them.

 

They will be 1? 2? 3? 4? 5? stars with the paid guys. (Who cares?)

 

The "power base" I feel shifted away from a kid, the media and paid people'''''' to simply, I suppose one single coach in 117-119 Division schools to what Charlie Weis says now. They don't run him he runs them. So we miss some Rivals, Scout and lemming five star. I'm not crying neither is Weis.

 

Coach has in effect bucked everybody. Bucked the old system.

 

If they come they will come. If I have to read another "Notre Dame is in my top 25 choices" article I will scream. :lol: It's where the heck are you in Weis' system kid?

 

We have the best info from recruiters here on DD but none of us will die, the team won't if we do not land some five star whats his name?

 

(One mans opinion)

no matter how you look at it there is no way someone can say that JC is not very important to this class. I stress very. This has been said many times but not only for his own abilities but also for the MANY players that will follow him. There's just no way around it.

 

JC WILL be Irish. announcement shortly after BG weekend.

I hope so to broker.....ducking though from your wrath though. :lol:

 

I am at a situation of no one is more important then the organization, business, Notre dame. I will even toss in Brady Quinn. We will make it. Then I hit a brick wall. Coach Weis. who in heaven could replace him? :(
