“I have a few dream schools and Notre Dame was a big one since I was a little kid and it still is,” Olmstead said. “Just the tradition there, the tradition of football. That’s what I’m all about. I love the program. The football there has been good for so many years and it’s a really good program.”

When kids say things like this, I start to wonder if they've really been paying attention. It makes me skeptical of their entire recruitment lol

Visiting for Navy Top junior offensive tackle sets Irish visit (http://scout.com/college/notre-dame/Article/Top-junior-offensive-tackle-sets-Irish-visit-106560585)

Notre Dame will likely place Olmstead and Quinn Carroll atop their offensive tackle board for the '19 recruiting cycle. Both are Top-150 prospects from Big Ten country. Both boast 20-plus offers and stand 6-foot-6 and weigh 290-pounds.

"Me and Quinn Carroll talk, actually, being we are both doing the same thing," Olmstead said. "Me and him are probably the top two at our position in the 2019 class.

"He's a great kid and I talked to him quite a bit. I like those types of kids, straight-edge and get the work done. I talk to him a lot about his recruiting and my recruiting and maybe we would end up going to the same place. We've talked about schools a lot."

I like the sound of that. Two Top 10 HS OT's in the same class... Like TK + Liam and Q + Bars... if they continue to pull two a class like that every two years, they'll always have one of the top lines in the country.

Loy gave Olmstead a CB for the Irish yesterday. Surprised that was his first. I'd be the house him and Carroll are in the '19 class and it wouldn't surprise me if they are both on board sooner rather than later.

I'd like to see Quinn come back for the Navy game for the simultaneous commitment.

Freebie from Friedman @ Rivals:

“I’m taking a close look at Notre Dame, Wisconsin, and Minnesota,” Olmstead said. “Those are the main three right now. They are probably showing the most interest in me. There are a lot of SEC school that are coming in too.

“Coach Hiestand leaving doesn’t really do anything to my interest in Notre Dame,” he said. “If I were to go to Notre Dame it wouldn’t be because of him being there. Don’t get me wrong, coach Hiestand is a great coach and a great guy and I really liked him but, if I decided to go to Notre Dame it would’ve been because that’s where I wanted to be. I’m not choosing a school because of the coach.

“I’ve been in contact with coach Quinn, the offensive line coach, a lot and I’m building my relationship with him,” said Olmstead. “I still talk to coach Kelly a lot and coach Long too. I think I’ll back up there in the beginning of April for an unofficial visit.

“I went out to Wisconsin during the summer and fell in love with the school again,” he said. “The tradition with the offensive line there goes way back. They’ve always had a good offensive line and they treat their big guys well. I feel like I fit in well there but I don’t really know anybody that plays there. I met the running back that is from New Jersey (Jonathan Taylor) out there but that’s about it. My recruiter is coach Turner and I have a great relationship with him and coach Rudolph, the offensive line coach. We text a lot every week. I might be getting out there this spring during my spring break.

“Minnesota’s 2018 recruiting class their best in a while,” Olmstead said. “They have a great coaching staff and I have a very good relationship with coach Fleck and coach Rossi. They just got a new offensive line coach and I’ve been talking to him as well. The coaches are always upbeat and really excited about the kids they’ll be bringing in for the 2019 class. It’s a great place and I loved it when I was up there in February of last year. It’s one of those places I fell in love with. I like the people and the campus.

“LSU and Ole Miss have been really making a big impression lately,” he said. “A lot of the SEC schools are coming right now. I just got an offer from Michigan the other day. I’ve been talking with one of the coaches there for a while. He seems like a good dude and I liked him a lot. That’s a big school I definitely want to go out and visit. I definitely want to visit Ole Miss and LSU.

“With a lot of these new schools coming in I think my decision has been pushed back,” said Olmstead. “I might commit in the early signing period in December. I’ll still take all my official visits but some could be in the spring and the rest would be in the fall.”

Dohn's geographical area of expertise and connections is the northeast. He is pretty well connected from what I understand. Was 56 of 60 for CB's in the 2018 class.

Not much ground breaking here but of note this comes after a multi day trip to Minnesota, a perceived dark horse in this recruitment. Dohn basically said that after several conversations with sources close to the situation, post MN visit, he’s now comfortable with the prediction.

A couple of excerpts

The school that wins Olmstead’s services won’t just be getting a gifted lineman with size 18 shoes who dead lifts more than 500 pounds, squats more than 400 pounds, benches 300 pounds and runs a five-second 40-yard dash and a 1.65-second 10-yard split. They’ll also be getting a phenomenal student with a 4.1 grade-point average who has an outstanding pedigree. Olmstead’s parents, Pat and John, both played college sports, with mom playing basketball and dad playing football, while his four older sisters all played college lacrosse, two at the Division I level.

Olmstead said his training regimen, which includes working out sometimes twice a day, including a routine that commences at 4 a.m., interfered with his ability to be a two-sport athlete.

“If I lose a day at the gym, someone else is getting better than me,” Olmstead said in explanation of his relentless work ethic, which he hopes eventually will translate into an NFL career.

A couple of excerpts

Sounds like the kid is a grinder. With the CB's I'm starting to feel it, but still reserve the right to change my mind again. lol

The whole December commitment thingy still leaves me less than confident. Thought he said in the last few weeks he was pushing back his commitment and planned to take all his visits (including fall). Also said a few SEC schools had been making up a lot of ground.

IDK... either the kid likes the attention, changes his mind often, or just wants to play the game.... Anyway, the ND confidence just doesn't make sense to me based on what the guy has said in the last 10 days.

My feeling is that a lot of the CB's are just illustrating that we lead, at the moment. Like you stated, the kid himself plans to take his time, so I wouldn't assume this is over in short order, just because of the CB's.

Done, over, finished, wrapped up with a bow.

If you remember, I only gave him a 95+% chance of signing in Carroll's thread. You then came in all skeptical and shook my confidence so I down graded him all the way down to 93.5%. In an act of defiance, I am raising him to Carroll's 99% level.

Carroll and Olmstead will be 2019's Sarell and Little.

Freebie from Rivals....

I didn't know he had in-state love for Rutgers...

Rivals100 offensive lineman John Olmstead released his to ten schools Friday afternoon. The generally quiet Metuchen (N.J.) St. Joseph's standout gave his thoughts on each school and where his recruitment will go from here.

IN HIS OWN WORDS…

"Four of the schools in my top ten (LSU, Michigan, Ole Miss, and Nebraska) are schools that I haven't been to yet," Olmstead said. "They made the list based on my conversations with those coaches and I've known some of those coaches since their previous stops. I've already been to the rest of the six schools. I got a great feeling on campus and when I was talking to the people there and that's what it's all about for me.

"I don’t have any visits scheduled yet but I will be visiting the four schools that I haven't see yet this spring," he said. "My official visits will be for my top five but I'm not sure when I'll have that figured out. I'll take my official visits some time this offseason."

LSU- "I talk to the offensive line coach every week and I get on the phone with coach O a lot too," he said. "I'm always talking to them and I feel like I can really relate to those guys."

Michigan- "They have a lot of New Jersey connections," said Olmstead. "I know the offensive line coach from a previous school and I've always had a good relationship with him since my sophomore year."

Minnesota- "I just got back from a recent trip to Minnesota," he said. "I love the coaches, the culture, and the people out there. They're great people and know what they're doing to help you get to the next level."

Nebraska- "They're a big offensive line school just like Wisconsin," Olmstead said. "The new coaching staff there does a good job of keeping in touch with me and I like what they are doing with the program."

Notre Dame- "I've out to Notre Dame two or three times now," he said. "I love it out there. It's a great school with great academics and great football. I've been building a relationship with the new offensive line coach and it's been going great.

Ohio State- "It was awesome when I went out there for the Penn State game," said Olmstead. "The atmosphere was crazy. The people are great there. I like coach Stud and Schiano is a New Jersey guy. They coaches are great people and they're in contact with me almost every other day. Our relationships are great."

Ole Miss- "Ever since they offered me a scholarship I've been on the phone with them every week," he said. "Them and LSU are the only two SEC schools in my top ten. They've been keeping in contact with me and showing me a lot of interest. They have a lot of New Jersey coaches down there and I can relate to them."

Penn State- "I went to Penn State last spring," Olmstead said. "I have a great relationship with coach Franklin. I talk to him a lot and coach Limegrover too. They've had some great recruiting classes too."

Rutgers- "They are very big for me," he said. "I literally live five minutes away from the Rutgers stadium. That's a big factor, staying home and have having Jersey Pride. I have a good relationship with the offensive line coach and coach Ash. I'm very fond of the program and they are rebuilding right now. I think they'll be very good in the future."

Wisconsin- "I was out there in February," said Olmstead. "If you're a lineman that's definitely one of the schools you look at."

RIVALS' REACTION…

Notre Dame, Minnesota, and Wisconsin have done a great job showing Olmstead how big a priority he is for them but Ohio State and Penn State continue to lurk. They've put themselves in position to make a big push. Rutgers fans should keep an eye on Olmstead to see if he makes it back to campus in the near future. LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, and Ole Miss will get their chance to really impress Olmstead and show that they have real staying power in his recruitment.

https://247sports.com/college/notre-dame/Article/Four-star-OL-John-Olmstread-locks-in-next-Notre-Dame-visit-116762841

Metuchen (N.J.) Saint Joseph four-star offensive tackle John Olmstead knew he was visiting Notre Dame in April, but the details weren't locked in.

That all changed Tuesday night.

The 6-6, 290-pounder set plans to get to South Bend for a visit on Apr. 9 and 10. This is a big visit, as the class of 2019 recruit remains a target very much coveted by the Fighting Irish coaching staff.

Who knows if Olmstead will be ready to make a decision during that visit, but we'll have him on commit watch during or shortly after that trip.

Others in play include LSU, Michigan, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Penn State and a few others.

Per the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Olmstead is the No. 168 overall player nationally, No. 18 offensive tackle in the country and No. 4 prospect in New Jersey from the 2019 class.

Pretty good article. Talks to Q. Nelson quite a bit. In addition to ND, he is visiting LSU, Ole Miss, Nebraska and Michigan over Spring Break. The only schools that he is visiting over Spring Break are the 4 schools that are in his top 10 that he has yet to visit as well as Notre Dame (has to be a good sign). Talks about some offers he would still like to get.

This doesn't seem to scare me as I think a lot of kids like to get offers from schools just to hold them up as trophies of accomplishment and notches on their belts that they were offered by all the elite schools even if they have no intention of going there.

He's not scheduled.

*From above:

“With a lot of these new schools coming in I think my decision has been pushed back,” said Olmstead. “I might commit in the early signing period in December. I’ll still take all my official visits but some could be in the spring and the rest would be in the fall.”

IMO he probably would've already committed if HH was still here. This is not a slam on Quinn in any way. I think Olmstead just needed to build that relationship with Quinn and gain a comfort level before making his decision.

It's obviously not a total slam dunk, as he has visited quite a few schools during spring break and obviously some school could just totally knock his socks off. The only school that he chose to revisit during his spring break was ND. All of the other schools were first time visits. To me, that is significant. Still seems like ND will be the choice.

Edit:
I think it's also significant that he arranged his visits to have ND be the last place he visited over his break.

Wouldn't it also be his last summer if he came in as a Fall admission? He already be in an ND lifting regime before the summer starts. Would be in ND summer camp and might well take a class or two in summer school to lighten his Fall load which has become common.

He may be an EE but it's customary to drink the tea before reading the leaves.

Great to get the first member of the 2019 OL recruits on the board. Olmstead is the first. Now we need to add Quinn Carroll and a couple of others to the team. This is an excellent pick-up. Jeff Quinn is picking up where Harry Hiestand left off.

I've now seen Lemming say that he will play tackle and Driskell say that he will play guard.

He gave one of the best interviews a recruit could ever do. He committed to the University of Notre Dame. He specifically said, he didn’t commit to a coach but to a school/program that fit what he wanted.

He gave examples of moments that should make us realize, to some, this is greater than football. To those that have been lucky enough to experience it. You probably know what he meant.

That was a great game. So far very entertaining series even though a lot of the "expert" were calling for a Cavs sweep. So far an 18pt road win by the Pacers and a comeback from 17pts down. The refs really sucked last night.

And very awesome pick up for the OL!!! Would love for another stud OL to pop soon.

Pretty cool to hear him talk about how Quenton Nelson came up to him and initiated the conversation this past weekend. Same could probably be said of Jaylon, Manti and others. So many alumni players were there connecting with our recruits.
