How Many Recruits Are Left?

 

By Brian Smith

 

Notre Dame now has seventeen public verbal commitments as of this morning, Jan. 7.

 

Tulsa, Okla., (Union) offensive lineman Matt Romine announced his intentions to attend the University of Notre Dame at the Army All-American Game. The Irish won a long recruiting battle with the in-state Sooners. Assuming no recruit is added to the Notre Dame recruiting board (do not count on that happening), the following recruits remain available:

 

Robert Hughes -- The Chicago tailback is now considering official visits to Michigan and Ohio State. Hughes has taken official visits Illinois and Notre Dame. Hughes is difficult to read.

 

Jason Peters -- The Baton Rouge native might still visit Notre Dame.

 

Will Blackwell -- Even insiders around the Louisiana State program feel Notre Dame has a good shot to land Blackwell.

 

Malcolm Smith -- Steve Smith is the older brother or Malcolm. Not surprisingly, the younger Smith is reportedly down to the Trojans and Irish.

 

Major Wright -- Notre Dame is considered a long shot to land Wright, but he is set for an official visit on Jan. 19. If Wright cancels the Notre Dame visit it would not be surprising. Watch out for Miami now that the Miami administration has hired Randy Shannon as head coach.

 

Joe McKnight -- Believe it or not, McKnight is set to visit Notre Dame on Jan. 19. Much like Wright, however, it would not be surprising if McKnight never takes the flight to South Bend.

 

Lastly, Notre Dame will likely make contact with recruits that were committed to other schools but changed head coaches. This is a common theme that happens across college football every year. There is no reason to believe differently in 2007.

I don't see Hughes coming. I'll be surprised.

 

Read somewhere that he wants to start as a freshman.

 

between Smith, Blackwell, Wright and Peters I think we can get one of them

 

I still think we have a solid shot at gettin Marcus Gilchrist to decommmit from Clemson and come aboard.

 

If Malcolm Smith is truly down top USC and us I say we land him.

 

we need Young and Wenger to work on Major Wright

 

Charlie needs to get his magic wand outta the closet

remember when CW was quoted as saying that ND was going to land a few recruites that now one expceted to go to ND. im wondering if that is still the case or if those players he was reffering to were donald, edwards and martin.

 

 

I don't think Weis would make that same statement today

I have to feel that way too, crouching and jedi. 'SOMETHING" occured. Weis can't control everything that happens nor foresee it. Let's wait and see.

Don't we have a big time K/P prospect out of Ohio who loves Notre Dame in next years class? I do not recall his name off hand, but the guy I remember reading is extremely good and very athletic for a K/P. Signing another this class would give us 3. (Assuming we get him next year)

Didn't Joe McKnight cancel his visit to ND?

 

That's the last I heard of him.

 

The kid is a USC silent right now. He spent the entire week in San Antonio with Galippo and Griffen.

 

The SC verbals all took a pic together and put up the "Victory" sign. McKnight was in the photo with them.

For someone who wasn't committed, McKnight looked awfully chummy with the SC boys during the game. Wouldn't surprise me in the least, let them burn another schollie on a RB.

LSU fans have got to be worried about him leaving for So Cal.

 

Remember the rule in recruiting, "The longer a player waits to pick between Home State U and an Out of State University, the better it is for the Out of State University".
