John Simon DT (Cardinal Mooney, Youngstown Ohio)

Early 5 star from Ohio squats 700 pounds benches around 425... Intringuing prospect as he is number one on the boards of Ohio State, Michigan and ND and will be sought after nationally...

 

Deandre Colemen DT (Seattle Washington)

Similar to Omar Hunter... All the Pac Ten is over him including SC and will be one of the top DTs in the West...

 

Kevin Minter LB (Georgia)

At 6'0 234 as a junior... He's a terror at inside linebacker. Involved in a lot of tackles and pretty good speed at 4.55 40...

 

Manti Te'o LB (Hawaii)

An LDS has early offers from Tennessee, USC and ND... Only 5 star from Hawaii next year. A reminder of Rey Malaluga and Brian Urlacher in the same mold... Best linebacker prospect in the class... 6'1 240 pounds with 4.5 speed...

 

Donovan Carter S (Cartersville, GA)

At 6'3 200 pounds the two way player reminds some of Will Hill with a better defensive game... Every recruiting animal in the country is after him... He will be wide open even though scout profile has his USC interest high...

 

Lendell Buckner DE (Chicago, Illinois Mount Carmel)

6'4 270 pounds brings us to the next five star from the Mount Carmel lineage... Total package at DE frees up a ton of space for Filer to roam... Early Big Ten interests Ohio State and Michigan included... Look for his stock to rise this fall...

 

 

 

Next week offense...

It appears that Steve Filer has a younger brother in the class of 09. He is 5'11", 180 and runs a 4.45 40. He is a corner. Not sure how good he is or if we are even showing interest. But he is currently being recruited by Virginia, Va Tech and Maryland.

It says he has early offers from ND and UT...how is this possible? Does that mean verbal offers?

 

my thoughts exactly. If Floyd, Filer, and Robinson all received offers last September 1st for the class of 2008, how do some prospects for 2009 already have offers? It has to be verbal offers but nothing formal right?

At this point 09 recruits can ONLY receive a VERBAL offer. No written offers are allowed at this time. You can verbally offer a kid at any age. You can verbally offer a newborn if you want. It's the written offers that have time constraints on them.

Quite possibly the biggest benefit to ND for this 2008 recruiting will not be the 08 class. Because with such early success on this class we now we can put such an early emphasis and concentration on the 09 class that we will be the first on alot of the 09 recruits. 09 will be a smaller class but it should be loaded with top talent from beginning to end. We should be able to cherry pick the elite talent, to a degree.

That is a good point - rather than focus on 15-20 '08 class kids, we can probably focus on 5-10 this year, and spend the same amount of time on "early bird specials.

 

I've got another reason why the '09 class has a chance to improve upon the class of 08. Not that Corwin was necessarily late in getting in on some of the recruits this year, but he didn't get hired until January 19th. Translation: He was already 4 months behind the likes of a Steve Filer. We're sitting pretty with him by now, but for all we know we could have had Steve all wrapped up by the spring game if Corwin were there from day 1.

 

Our odds will be very good if we have Corwin Brown on a defensive kid's caller ID, or doorstep, or whatever the case, from September 1st 2007 all the way to the first week of February, 2009. Having Corwin from start to finish could mean the difference between getting a 4 star guy who is good, and a 5 star who is great.

Awesome info. AA. I'm hearing that Simon is an early OSU lean, but when we offer and start recruiting him hard, hopefully we'll make up some ground.

 

It's great to hear that there is a stud DL on Filer's team. If we get Steven, our chances with Buckner definitely increase.

 

That Te'o kid sounds like the ultimate ILB package.

yup, and with the fact we will be limited on schollies to give out, it be nice to have the extra time to figure out which kids we want
