What do you guys think of him? Will he be Irish? I haven't heard too much about him except that he really likes Florida and Georgia. Where do you think Allen ends up and why?

Good chance he'll be Irish. Seems like a real bright kid from his interview on PowerHour, likes how ND is recruiting him. Our depth is favorable for him, we just need to get him up for a visit. Chances get better w/ him as guys like Rainey commit instate.

Rainey appears to be recruited as a slot WR so he probably doesn't fit in the equation. I think he may end up at Georgia with King though. UGA needs some backs.

Georgia needs back??? Most national magazines rated Georgia as the top stable of running backs. They are all Juniors and have another year after this... Plus, the freshman Moreno was a pretty good prospect last year.

Jag is right.

If AA is looking for opportunity then I would have to say that UT and ND would be the two schools with the best opportunity to play soon. I believe that if Darius Walker has a good year then he will most likely go to the draft. Aldridge will step up but his knees have been questionable and Prince will not be big enough to play every down. Schmidt is a big back and can put up some yards but will most likely be a fullback and will most likely be in quite a bit in the passing game because of his size and the fact that Quinn will need more protection because there will be some holes in the line. Schwaph could see some time there too. So we definitely make sense for him.

I agree with everything you said Chiro except that DW goes to the draft... I don't think that he has the intangibles, ie combine numbers, to be first day back at this point. He reminds me alot of Autry Denson, my favorite ND back ever, a great college back that could leave ND as it's all time rush leader but may not have a great NFL career ahead of him.

 

I think that, like last year, the running game will kinda be an afterthought on a team that puts up huge passing numbers. I think that being the focus of the offense in '07 and that could help improve his status... at the very least he completes school and has something to fall back on after football.

DW will stay for his senior year no doubt about it. When he was in high school the police mistakenly identified him and roughed him up pretty good outside a theater. He got something like ten million in the settlement and has no worries about money. I think I saw the article in the SBT a couple months back.

 

In addition DW gets Notre Dame and loves Our Lady with his whole heart. He will stay where he will get himself a degree that is going to serve him well his entire life. He is very bright and a class act. Barring something unforeseen he will be the all-time leading rusher.

I'm not sure how he will do in the pros... His 40 time will definitely hurt his stock... I think he definitely comes back for his senior season...

It was a 3 million dollar settlement

 

That's what I recall reading.

 

Regardless of the sum, Jag's comparison to Denson is accurate. Not a bad guy to be compared to but Denson's longest run from scrimmage was 54 yds. Unless Walker suddenly develops that missing top gear he's destined for just another great 1000+ yd season.

 

He's going to have post an incredible season, more like 2000 yds, to make him prime draft material. Quinn, McKnight, Samardzija, Carlson and CW's game plan don't make that seem likely.

Well CW knows that he'll need to have his RBs put up decent numbers to attract them like we've attracted the big time WRs and QBs this year so I wouldnt be surprised to see like 1500 yards this year and then around 2000 his senior year when we will be rebuilding the offense.

Armando Allen to Notre Dame?

That is the rumor. It sounds like he will take some visits but as of now the kid is all Irish. I guess Charlie Weis is doing a great job recruiting the state of Florida. Very interesting news if this happens. It would be a big time get for ND.
