I've no sources or anything influencing this, but I'd almost rather get that other corner spot locked up sooner than later. I think Alexander wouldn't be a great fit even if he came here, think Willis pushing back his visit doesn't bode well... I think Moore has a decent shot at ending up Irish, but that other visits remain concerns me a bit - not a ton, but a bit.

 

Not really our fault that we had a pair of 5 star commits a year ago and that the wheels fell off for various reasons, but I'd feel better if we took some of the suspense out of this and maybe threw an offer out that may induce more incentive to decide.

 

I wouldn't mind it if our other corner was a 6 footer that opened the door to Cass Tech. I don't mind keeping the door open to Moore in particular, but I like that the staff is at least having him visit.

This kid is only a sophomore. I saw him play as a freshman for the state championship last year vs. Perinial powerhouse Detroit Catholic Central and throw six td's. He has already been offered by ND and Bama. I have watched a lot of high school football and have never seen an athlete of this kids caliber. He is Denard Robinson at 6'3" and very accurate. He is going to be something very very special by the time he is ready for collegiate ball. Hell he already is very special. I hope we impress him.

We'll never get many from there, but it's just good to simply open up the door again to Cass Tech in Detroit. Hell, it's just good to open the door to more of Michigan.

 

Cass Tech seems to be getting the best in Detroit. I think it would be smart to open the door there to get future 5 star players like Jayru. I think we need to be strategic too.

Dan Fox has been a very pleasant surprise this year and I'd love to see him back for a fifth. I agree that Parris was disappointing, especially given his massive production in high school.

 

I think Ignatius guys would love to go to ND, but traditionally, OSU and UM recruit them much more actively. For whatever reason, ND just doesn't seem to recruit Cleveland that hard. Which is unfortunate, because there are so many Ignatius guys who go to school at ND anyway. Why not bring some of their football players?

Well, the consistent powers in Cleveland are St. Ed's, St. Ignatius, and Glenville. In all fairness, the Glenville school district just isn't set up to send their kids to a school with strict academic entrance requirements like ND, which sucks as Glenville has some AMAZING athletes year in and out.

 

Ed's and Ignatius are solid college prep academies, and most any kid there could go to ND. Cleveland really is a split OSU/Michigan city, though, with more support for ND than one might think. Ed's has been a bit down lately. Then, recent powers on the outskirts like Mentor, Solon, and the Avon's just don't produce great athletes, but rather, play more of a system.

Its early, but I don't see him flipping. Thought he was a bit of a long shot anyhow.

 

me neither -- maybe he flips to MI, but that would be it. He has some big offers already -- us and Bama. surprised he committed to MSU so early.
