when i was in the bahamas, i met a nd fan. he is a rivals subsciber and was on top of his stuff. he said that he teaches at eason high school where holley goes to school. holley told him that nd was on him hard early and now have backed off. nd told holly that they were going after bigger more pyhiscal dbs. holley told his teacher that if nd were to offer he would jump on it in a second. so it is looking good for saughter i guess. of yeah i also got engaged too. :D

welcome back forever. funny, i was just asking someone about him yesterday (i live 15 minutes away) and was going to make a similar post. i've seen him play multiple times and although he is a tremendous athlete, he does lack some size and physicality. he is just going into his senior year, so alot may change. would like to keep him on our radar as i know he is a strong ND lean. hope your family is well forever........

is it just me or can you guys feel the unbelivable momentum this staff is building with recruits this year? yes, i know we felt somewhat the same way last year but this year just seems..different. like it's a freight train that's just rollin' and rollin' and picking up steam...incredible!

 

IF the hale and slaughter rumors are true, we must assume that CB is a recruting god, even this early in his career! :)

 

i think top 5 class is *clearly* possible now. whaddya think?

if ND wants a top 5 they'll need to land floyd, c. thomas, e. johnson, filer, sabino, slaughter and maybe hale.

 

I think c. thomas is really the only guy on this list that could be left off and we'd still have a top 5 class.

 

 

I said it a few weeks ago.

 

Needs for top 5

 

2 WR commits Floyd and a question mark

 

Slaughter's a must

 

Either Shane Hale or Arthur Brown (both)

 

Another DL recruit -- E. Johnson or Forston

 

Another OL recruit -- any that we've offered would do it

 

Either Sabino or Filer (neither if Hale & Brown commit to us)

 

I dont necessarily think we need a RB in this class.

 

I think 22 will be our number in the end. It's the staff's decision on which position the schollie's get pulled after these guys start committing.

 

We have 15 right now, so that's 7 maybe 8 depending on 5th year seniors.

Definitely a different feeling this season. I just feel like there is a whole new attitude with recruiting going on. Its like now the kids are trying to jump on with us before we fill up the boat and sail off. If the rumors of Hale are true that would be awesome. Even so, I think Anthony McDonald easily could be the top 2-4 LB in this class he is a stud.

Completely agree. He won't get the hype because he committed early, and didn't get much interest from elsewhere because he pretty much told the world "I'm a Domer don't bother." But when I watch him, I see a different kind of linebacker than the ones we've been bringing in. He's a pure ILB, who plays with a different gear - a tenacity kind of like what I see out of Omar Hunter. Nagel and Paskorz are nice, but they were more or less HS athletes, who were Jacks of all Trades. This guy is a pure LB, no iffs ands or buts about it. I'm glad we're getting space eaters on the DL, 'cause McDonald could be a MONSTER if he's allowed to roam and hunt down ballcarriers without the disruption of blockers.

 

Honestly, I don't care if we end up with a class ranked 5th or a class ranked 7th. Its just an arbitrary #, and the bottom line is we're already filling the needs with top shelf talent. Yes, the previous years had great hauls on offense, but we didn't fill all of our holes (see DL for details), now, we're getting the same great talent, but filling needs too. Its a good feeling, particularly to see the defense go stride for stride with the offense on the recruiting front.

congrats on the engagement.

 

on holley, I'm glad to see ND is treating these kids right. you know when you hear recruits say "Coach Weis tells it like it is, and i respect that" well this is what they mean. He's not BSing them. He tells them straight up what their chances are.

And gone after 2 years at ND. Maybe even one if the defense plays out of there mind this year.

 

You can't help but like this guy. From what I hear he has a true power to motivate. Just like the little general.

FOREVER, my congrats too. Let her and her mom plan the whole thing. You just show up and look good. Is this a soft or solid verbal? :lol:

 

Yep, congrats forever. Domeanddomer is wise beyond his years. This is great advice that I wish I had before I got married. Do what is asked but interject little and you will live to see your bachelor party.

I hope this puts and end to the speculation on Holley. If we are going to be competitive with the top programs then we need to avoid dbs like him. I have too many visual memories of ND dbs one step to slow or who don't tackle well, chasing fleet receivers down the sidelines unable to either tackle them or one step behind them.

 

Admittedly I only saw him play once but he seemed to me to be not significantly better than the players he was competing against. We need guys that "pop-out" to you when you watch them play. He looks like too many of the recent corners that have played at ND.
