Good read from the Trib

Maine South tackle Peter Skoronski ready to meet expectations - Park Ridge Herald-Advocate (http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/park-ridge/sports/ct-prh-peter-skoronski-maine-south-football-tl-0712-story.html)

Interesting blurb about Kilburg who you can catch on CNBC from time to time.
Peter Skoronski even has some help in his own Park Ridge neighborhood. He lives near former Notre Dame center Jeff Kilburg, whose son, Ryan Kilburg, also will be a Maine South junior this fall.

ďHeís been a big help in my development,Ē Skoronski said of Jeff Kilburg.

ISD freebie offering some insights as to some 2020 Offensive Recruits
https://irishsportsdaily.com/s/7562/2020-offensive-outlook

It’s tough to get a read on this one and that isn’t likely to change anytime soon. The Illinois native is a mature young man and one who has politely made it clear he isn’t interested about drawing a lot of attention to himself or his recruiting process and he’s definitely not looking to do that in the midst of his junior season. Skoronski was at Notre Dame for the spring game and the opener against Michigan. He told us he really enjoyed the time he spent with Jeff Quinn and called the campus one of the nicest he’s ever seen. He’s also got offers from schools like Penn State, Illinois and Iowa among others. Skoronski’s grandfather, Bob Skoronski, was a captain and left tackle under Vince Lombardi and was a member of five Green Bay Packer championship teams.

Would ND take his commitment on the spot? That's the question. Hope he's not a tier down on Quinn's chart to Raym & Tucker for interior guys.

My buddy from Glenview thinks his ceiling is higher than anyone out of the area in forever. Kevin Jarvis was his all-time favorite up until young Skowron and I'll have to look at the veins pop out his forehead this weekend in San Diego if Jarvis' name is brought up. But I thought Jarvis could be Q Light for ND too so I can't fault him.

I thought I had posted this info here but it must be buried in the Master Thread.

Dad played at Yale.

His Grandfather, Packer great Bob Skoronski ironically grew up just minutes from Yale but played collegiately at Indiana.

A couple of ND ties here:

He works out with Kerry Neal at EFT Performance

Is close with former Irish lineman, Jeff Kilburg who if you follow the markets, is frequently on CNBC as an analyst. Ryan Kilburg is his HS teammate and has also visited ND. He recently picked up his first DI offers.

Jeff Kilburg is a good Twitter follow if interested:

That's your takeaway from Loy backing off his NW CB. I think it's the opposite. I think since his visit ND is pushing hard and probably looking to get his commitment as soon as they can. FWIW, Jamie at ISD loves this kid and for good reason.

So what the hell happened?The realization that he might not see PT until his 4th, 5th year if at all. I liked him like I like Christ but in both cases I think they made better choices for themselves if they actually want to play and can do it at P5 Universties.

At ND I'm not sure when they would get there chance with the backlog of talent and as good as they are I think the strong '21 class that ND is all over that they had a greater chance of falling throiugh the depth chart cracks to go with the class that they just brought in with the '19 class.

Idk, I feel like we say this every year "they're in great position with the position in next year's class". Sure feels like we were saying that about OTs recently.

So for '19 his biggest competition at the interior spot would be Zeke (Center prospect), and Quinn (if they have the luxury of playing him at Guard), and for '20 probably only Zinter? How's their interior OL board look, because he could definitely be playing in his 3rd year, unless ND starts pulling in some monster guards.

Well they got who they wanted last cycle at all spots. Carroll and Kristofic at OTís. This certainly stinks as Skoronski would be the top inside option on my (irrelevant) board. Hopefully make a push for Atteberry and Monheim. Though I donít feel good about them. Zinter is probably most likely and Baker seems like itís a matter of time (very soon time).

Hopefully make a push for Atteberry and Monheim. Though I don’t feel good about them. Zinter is probably most likely and Baker seems like it’s a matter of time (very soon time).

Right, and that's pretty much 3 Tackles (who are most desperately needed) and a few other Guards. Atteberry is OSU's to lose, right? I have no idea how interested Monheim is. But if Skoronski is as good as some claim (I gotta defer to Crus on talent evaluation), then losing him is pretty big, because I don't love the interior guys from last cycle, and am unsure that Sko would be anything other than the top Interior guy in this year's class. That's why I'm skeptical about depth chart being the answer, though it very well could be. Guaranteed 3 or 4 years or starting at NW, but it's not like at ND he'd be waiting for his 5th year like Ruhland.

Luckylucci
05-04-2019, 05:14 PM
I don’t think it had to do with playing time. I’d assume relationships. NW had been on him for long time and consistently. Pretty sure there was a period of time where the interest from ND slowed and that probably impacted it to some degree.

Ricochet
05-04-2019, 06:18 PM
Even the kids who truly are about the academics still care about playing and showcase there abilities to the NFL. So what I think is happening is just like I said in my previous post. What they are seeing is the Luggs of thevworld who most likely would be quite highly thought of elsewhere where he would be playing for a good P5 school. At ND he's stuck behind such talent he might not see more than 1 year of significant PT.

Ok Iíll bite.

I have zero inside info. but by the looks of things he picked a school that he feels sets himself up for a quality, top notch education and a chance to be an immediate contributor on the football field. If the JJ McCarthy thread shows, itís not just the coaches that could give off vibes of wants and commitment. The kids can do the same and choose other schools. Happens. Respect their decision without assessing blame. Have to think with the strong haul last year that there is a plan on the part of the staff and they will fill spots as they see fit. Oh, and itís May 4th. Too early to toe the cliff.

He was until he wasn't. Word out now is his recruitment was done in spurts. If true, that's unfortunate. ND should have a lead pack of 5-7 interior line guys and go after all of them until they fill up. There are no golden tickets at OG. But if you are slow playing or low playing a Catholic kid from Chicago with football royalty in his veins for kids from Colorado or Washington, that is flawed... until you land them, then it's a "genius move" like the Buchner/McCarthy scenario.

As of late we did, but we didnít throughout the entirety of his recruitment. And ultimately, I think thatís what won out. Familiarity and comfort with NWís staff.

Quinn has certainly taken a couple of big Lís here recently but I donít think panic mode is needed.

Is Quinn taking the L's? Quinn's probably the sales guy on the road while reading from a script that he, Kelly, Long & the entire recruiting staff have authored.

'20's a tough year for ND OL recruiting. Everyone not named Tosh Baker has to look at the depth chart and the '21 traction and ask, "where do I fit in?" I've loved Jimmy Christ from the get go but Jimmy Christ at ND had a very good shot at becoming Hunter Biven... everyone does.

I'm proud of Skoronski. He is who I thought he was. Smart & grounded. Chose a guaranteed path of life long success as well as a much better opportunity to get on the field early and work on his craft. Hopefully he develops into a guy who gets to the League.

Luckylucci
05-05-2019, 01:36 PM
Yes, Quinn is most certainly taking the L’s. I don’t think it’s a big deal but if he’s going to get credit for personally recruiting the 19’ class then he should get blame for what looks like misses on the top targets. Again, I don’t think it ultimately is a big deal but they really wanted those 2. Especially Christ.

This is sort of repetitive, but I can't (personally) be persuaded that being in the back of the OLine room (re: chances to get on the field) is anything but a big neg-recruiting sledgehammer that any other school would use against us.

We have five monsters that we roll out there who all could play this year and next. Behind them there are three guys who have been around the team (Lugg, Gibbons, Dirkson) who Quinn played in the middle of the meathouse in the Spring game, and who did pretty well. Added to that are Correll, Kristofic, Carroll, and Olmstead, who as a group some consider the solidest haul yet --- two of whom were the second team Spring tackles.

That's TWELVE guys who would be veterans well schooled in ND OLine play. What opposing recruiter wouldn't use THAT vs us? It would take an awfully confident and/or patient player to want to come in and face that.

Admittedly, in ancient times (my day and earlier) there were lots of players who were willing to sit just to be the re-load guys for NOTRE DAME and the NFL pipeline that we were. I don't think that quite exists now. (though we may be reestablishing it.) Edit: by the way, back in those old "glory" days, the tendency was to have an "up" recruiting OLine class followed by a relatively thin one, then another "up" etc etc. Leahy didn't have to bother with that but the others did.

I'll give Quinn et al all the "pass" they need (and it's not obvious yet that there's any griping to be had anyway) if we're not the assembly-of-monsters this year that we're beginning to take for granted.

I agree it is one of the most difficult things to do in recruiting but the top top teams bring in super talented dudes and follow that up with more talent. Clemson has like 10 4-5* receivers and they just reeled in two 5 star receivers this past cycle. They also convinced the top QB in the class to sit behind a Junior Trevor Lawrence instead of walking into a starting job at pretty much every other school in America

.9545 4* Hunter Bivin
.9467 4* Steve Elmer
.9330 4* John Montelus
.9280 4* Mike McGlinchey
.9209 4* Colin McGovern

.9707 5* Quenton Nelson
.9484 4* Alex Bars
.9123 4* Sam Mustipher
.8926 4* Jimmy Byrne

This is just an example from a ratings perspective as to what back to back epic classes can look like. 2019 was Part I of that trend and now stacking up back to back classes ensures talent, depth and competition. Getting some big time dudes on board is a must for ND this cycle and almost every cycle after that.

To be fair, that's probably an easy sell... hey, come sit behind Trevor for a year. You'll get to play in almost every game, because we're gonna blow everyone out, then the job is yours full-time for two years.

I think that QBs think differently than OLine, and WRs surely do.

Okay not the greatest one but there are countless other examples. Bama has 14 composite 4-5*ís at DB this upcoming season. They also have 14 4-5*ís at LBer (they play a 3-4). Thatís definitely stacking talent. Bama convinced Ishmael Sophser, Antonio Alfano, Justin Eboigbe, DJ Dale, Byron Young and Braylen Ingraham to play defensive line in a 3-4 defense. Thatís 6 freshman for a 3 position group! My general point is I donít feel bad for Jeff Quinn having too much talent at ND but rather I expect him to be a dynamite recruiter and close the deal with some of these top kids.

... really hard to compare Bama to anybody as to the recruiting game --- so many of those studs leave early [for more than one reason] that the sit-and-wait thing is easy to reject [whether wishful thinking or not.] The skill position kids and defense for sure know that, plus no one else can offer a near sure title sometime.

I'm still giving our staff full marks for effort to a plan --- which is all I can ask.

Speaking of Bama, or Clemson, or Georgia, or Oklahoma or Ohio St...... why didn’t they offer Skoronski

We have no idea the entire list of schools that offered him. He didn't announce them.

Bad year to be short on inside #'s. Elsewhere, I saw ND fans say, "The fact he went to NW and not OSU or Mich proves why he's not a take for ND."

No, it just proves how much of an education first, RKG he is.

I'm glad he's there. I can't help but pull for the Kitties. Saw a lot of their games from 1994-2000. I just have to filter out the periodic Fitz hate but that's ND's fault as much as his.

Congrats to Pete. Had the staff needed an inside guy this cycle he'd be Irish and sitting outside the Top247 instead of:

A FIVE STAR

Meet 247's #29 OA player in 2020.

Lets flip, categorize him as a fullback, and tell everyone we're running the wish bone O. Fuck everyone up.....

Meanwhile, after dominating the Opening and winning the fastest man competition, Chris Tyree was rewarded with a gracious 10 spot drop.

I'm sorry, I like Skoronski and think he's a good player, but he is not even close to touching top 30 level.

247's quality of content continues to deteriorate by the year.

Don't want to rag on the kid, but his film was not warranting of such a ridiculous bump.
