Upshot for the Rest of the Class (2013 edition)
Back by popular demand... a lot of this is contained within the Who's Likely Next? threads and individual player profiles, but this thread will serve as a consolidation of said information up until NSD. In the end, I intend this thread to be a 'one stop shop' of sorts that saves people time in scrounging through pages of recruiting threads for answers to the same questions like "how many spots do we have left?" or "when is so-and-so deciding?" Please feel free to add on and offer corrections/insight/opinions below. I will keep it updated weekly or as new major recruiting developments happen.
Notre Dame has probably 2 spots remaining after the commitment of Durham Smythe. The numbers game is a little fuzzy with Jamoris Slaughter’s 6th year situation and potential transfers/medicals but we do know at this time that it is likely that Hegarty will be back (yay!) and that you can almost always count on at least one transfer (although none have been announced quite yet).
"Locks" (i.e. guys where all evidence points to them committing to ND and only a bizarre change of circumstances could get them to do something different)
Guys We Currently Lead For
Guys We Are Squarely in the Race For (does not mean in the slightest that we will or are expected to win the race... but means we have a legitimate shot to land these guys depending on how the next 8 weeks play out)
Eddie Vanderdoes - Eddie had a great visit to ND. Still looks on track to make his visit to 'Bama next weekend. ND should be a player until the end but is definitely can't be considered a favorite by any stretch of the imagination.
Deon Hollins - The UCLA commit will be a tough pull at this point but he had a great visit. So we're in the discussion if the staff really pushes for him hard... I expect him to end up at UCLA at this point though.
Torrodney Prevot - Another rush OLB type of prospect who, while currently committed to USC, is more likely than not going to end up at Notre Dame or Texas A&M according to reports. Visited A&M, no report of a commit to the Aggies, so expect him to make the trip to ND next weekend.
Kylie Fitts - Had a really strong visit to ND. Distance could end up being a big issue especially without his parents visiting. I think he liked the visit more than he was expecting to. UCLA would probably be my guess right now but USC is also a strong option with ND being a big dark horse.
Guys We Have a Shot At (i.e. could hypothetically become part of this class but it would take a significant change of the status quo)

Well done. Couldn't hurt to add Mac Alexander, Priest Willis, etc. ie. guys we've stopped actively recruiting, but are still in the mix (although not favorable) and would likely take their commitment if they chose to do so.
