I think Riggs is an absolute possibility. Lamarcus Joyner will be the much harder pull in my opinion, but it seems that Weis has established a pipeline to St. Thomas Aquinas which can do nothing but pay dividends considering it is a national powerhouse.

Here's a video on him from Rivals. He talks about coming to ND for the spring game, and how he camped here last summer. Also said we were the first to offer him, and that's one of the big reasons he's coming out for the game. It's nice to be mentioned, but he also talks about FSU and other schools. We're in the mix, but he's going to be a tough pull IMO.

Very good news with him:

1) He wasn't even ranked in the initial Rivals 250, and now in the latest Rivals 100, he's all the way up to being ranked #43. Kid's a stud all of a sudden (LOL).

2) Rivals still has him as saying that ND is his leader right now, even after his other unofficials. He also says he plans on taking all of his officials before making his decision.

3) Has ND as 'High" on his list, while every other school is at 'Medium". Doesn't mean he's ours by any means, but it is still nice to be the leader at this point. If we win ball games, we'll be that much closer to getting him...

Interesting snippet from Mike Farrell 5/20:



... Cody Riggs reportedly wants to commit to Notre Dame, but longtime Aquinas coach George Smith isn't big on his players making such early decisions and wants his players to see numerous schools before deciding.


I recall a similar comment about the Aquinas coach during Young's (1/19/06 verbal) or Wenger's (12/7/06) recruitment. I also believe Turk commented on his coach's commitment preference but he declared early (6/11/08) anyway.

Good philosophy but the coach's view may not be purely altruistic. I don't think he's big on his players making visits in season as he feels they're disruptive to HIS season. He wants his players time devoted to his team not gallivanting cross-country. Also understandable.

I believe Wenger committed at or just after ND's Banquet. Young was a January visit I think.

Well, Riggs finally got the offer he was waiting for, from FL. Now he says he doesn't have a leader, according to Rivals.

But don't lose faith, we're still good here, and he will take his official with us, and he still loves ND. But now it's a 2 horse race with ND and FL. He always said he was going to wait until he took all 5 officials to make a decision, and that remains the same...

6/1 Riggs Steps Back

Steve Hare IrishIllustrated.com

When Cody Riggs left South Bend in April after checking out Notre Dame during its annual Blue-Gold Game, the 5-9, 156 CB from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., was clear on where he ranked the Irish. He called Notre Dame his leader. That was before the four-star prospect picked up offers from Georgia and Florida. Now the Irish may be back where they started.

I talked to Mike Langston from flavarsity.com at the bar tonight (which is rare to see him there). He talked to Riggs today, and he said that the visit to UF went good. Not great, grand or wonderful, just good. And the recruiting pitch was NOT coaching stability, it was depth, as the best cb on the team has gotten into trouble lately. Also Riggs has an uncle who played for ND, which I did not know at all.

BTW, Lo Wood is not coming to camp, but Spencer Boyd may.

Premium Rivals article has Riggs saying his top two are now Georgia and Florida

Just a month ago, Riggs stated the Notre Dame Fighting Irish definitely lead for his services after having a great visit with their coaching staff and bonding well with Notre Dame assistant coach Corvin Brown. But now that Georgia and Florida are now at the top of his list, did geography have something to do with his new favorites?

"Yes I would say it has because both are in the South and not too far from home. I'm not sure the coaching situation with Notre Dame is also stable, so that's something I need to focus on. I know Notre Dame is going to be one of the official visits I take. That's something I would like to feel comfortable about because I don't want to be in a situation where the coaches leave and your stuck somewhere with a new set of coaches to start with."

Notre Dame fans. Read any ND board.

Anybody's "Coaches Hot Seat" List.

Probably every program competing with ND, subtly or overtly.

Throw in ESPN, Sporting News, Scout, Rivals, Lemming, South Bend Times, Chicago Tribune, and other papers, magazines, and TV sportscasts from coast to coast.

Charlie's own words that he discussed it with his family.

Any recruit that doesn't know that Weis's position is under scrutiny doesn't have the wits necessary to pass ND Admission.

He spoke to ISD today. He will visit for the USC game (yet another important player at that game...it just gets bigger and bigger). He will take all 5 visits before making his decision. His top 5 is the same, but he put them in order:

Georgia
ND
FL
Tenn
FSU

Surprising right? ND has moved ahead of FL, in thanks to the persistance of Corwin Brown, who has emailed Riggs every day, without fail. He also said that Georgia is not that far ahead of ND (but to their credit, they still are in the lead; better than having FL there!!!)

UGA lost their skill players on offense to the draft. Knowshon and Stafford made up the bulk of their offense. They return 15 starters, but until they can prove they can move the ball efectively in the SEC I don't see them winning more than 8 games with their schedule maybe 9.

They have 3 likely losses in OK State, LSU, and Florida, and then Georgia Tech will be a good game, as well as maybe Arizona State and Tenn

Arkansas should also give them a tough game. They could lose 7 and stay home at bowl time. With a Senior QB and a solid OLine they could end up in the Chick-Fil-A or Capital One Bowls.

UGA doing poorly could be a plus to a CB like Riggs. ND has a better, deeper CB corps.

On the other hand if he has NFL aspirations, at ND he'd be practicing every day against Clausen, Crist, Tate, Floyd, et al.

ND could take a full 25 depending on how many 5th year players are brought back. Losses to injury, academics, or ResLife, or transfers obviously won't be known until the end of the Fall semester.

Wood is supposed to be an EE (Early Entrance) and there could be others. There is space in the previous class to accomodate EEs so the number could rise above 25 if CW desires, and the talent warrants it.

Aquinas’ Riggs Narrowing His Choices | Gridironstuds.com Blog (http://www.gridironstuds.com/blog/aquinas-riggs-narrowing-his-choices/)

7/11 Article, I didn't see a byline.


Georgia is the leader. I got along with their entire coach staff, especially Coach Martinez and Coach Richt.

He likes the coaching staff, campus, and the program's direction. UF's campus and facilities impressed him more but ...

Georgia is redoing their weight room and everything was brand new. They are doing a lot of good things at Georgia.


Riggs notes practicing against two former teammates WRs Duron Carter and Dwayne Difton "helped mold him into the cornerback he is today."

IF he comes to ND he can practice against America's best receiver's to help mold him into all the cornerback he can be.

IrishInFl
07-12-2009, 02:57 PM
I still think we end up getting Riggs. He has been wanting to commit for months now, as his coach does not want his players to commit before the season for some reason, including Lamarcus Joyner, who is a silent verbal to FSU.

Might be some good news with him. CB Nickell Roby committed to Georgia, giving them another DB recruit. It's unclear whether or not Georgia will take another DB, but with both FL's and Georgia's secondaries getting full quickly, it will be interesting to see if they will leave room for a talent like Riggs, even if they are already full. My guess is that they would leave a spot open, but you never know, especially with Urban Liar...

Do you think ND would take 4 corners?

Shaw has the frame to grow into a Safety but if he has his heart set on CB why would ND take 4 corners?

I suspect that if Riggs or Shaw verbal to ND, CB shopping season is over.

Midwest recruiting Blog - ESPN (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?name=Midwest_Recruiting)

Charlie Weis is hoping to land teammates DB Cody Riggs, OL Brandon Linder and RB Giovanni Bernard (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas). All three are planning to make official visits to ND, though it is not certain at this point if they will all do so at the same time.

Riggs has narrowed his choices down to ND UF FSU UGA and UTN and has scheduled 5 officials. He'll be at FSU v MIA on 9/7, UTN v UCLA on 9/12, UF v UTN on 9/19, UGA v LSU 9/12, and ND v USC on 10/17. ND gets the last visit.



I'll take all five visits,. Then I'll probably decide right after the last one. Florida is my favorite.The others are all even after that.

Interesting article at Volnation, take it for what its worth:

Cody Riggs appears to be running out of options. Even UT has guys ahead of him that they would take first. UF is in much the same stage. The younger brother of former Vol running back Gerald Riggs was also reportedly told by Georgia that he was “on hold” when he tried to commit. He has proclaimed Florida his leader so often it looks as if he is almost begging for a scholarship.

He's the odd man out because he's either under preforming, or just stinks. My guess is because Joyner is so good, teams always throw in Riggs direction. I went to the STA vs. Byrnes (SC) game, and was not impressed by Riggs. If we got Riggs, he would be the least impressive get at CB, IMO.

How was it to be at that game IrishINFl? That game was full of blue chippers. STA has what, five or six guys with D-1 schollies? I'm with you on Riggs, the kid seems to not be as good as advertised. Our two commits, Boyd and Wood, have been getting rave reviews all season.

It was like nothing I've ever experienced in HS football. Being from Minnesota, we didn't have nearly the atmosphere as here in Florida. There was definetly a differance in atmosphere from here (Tallahassee) then there (south Florida). It was strange going to a HS game with more fans then my 2009 D2 national champions Minnesota-Duluth.

People who saw the game on tv could tell you how Riggs got picked on. He just seemed very overrated IMO. Joyner was impressive, but the best player on the field was on the losing team (Byrnes, SC), Marcus Lattimore.

It has been posted elsewhere, but keep an eye on Cody. He has graduated from Florida and is looking to transfer somewhere for this upcoming season and play right away.

As Cody cites herehttp://college-football.si.com/2014/02/06/cody-riggs-florida-transfer/ , academics and getting an MBA at a prestigious business program is his main motivation for transfer. ND was thought to be the favorite for him before he decided on Florida, so it could be a fit.

ISD hints in their Intel this morning that ND is all over it, and we could be a possibly landing spot. Stay tuned.

No idea if this messes with the scholarship totals, but I love this idea. Gives us a potential starting-caliber guy in 2014 without shrinking the 2015 class. With Mendoza's MBA program on an upward trajectory, I wonder if we could see more of these situations in the future if we continue to miss 85.

I'm sure it could be worked around if he shows the aptitude. Regardless of whether he could transfer here or not, if he wants an MBA from Notre Dame, I wish him the best of luck and hope that he would represent that program as best as he could.

The only mild disconnect here is that he could solve our safety leadership problem next to Redfield, but doesn't want to play it. At corner he'd doubtless be fine, but with Russell established and Luke looking likely to be good, our need seems not as great there.

Still, he'd be VERY welcome either way.

It's not always that cut and dry. Notre Dame actually allows a small number of undergraduates to jump right into the MBA program. One of my professors tried to talk me into doing it, but my adviser said I'd be better served in the long run getting 3-5 years under my belt and coming back since it would allow for better networking in addition to the classwork. I do know 2 classmates who made the jump directly though.

MBA is two year program isn't it? I don't see how NFL caliber guys can jump in like this. Undrafted guys I can appreciate the jumpstart on a program. However, I don't see why we would take any less than NFL talent in a 5th year.

As a top tier MBA grad, I would rather see people get 4-5 years of real work experience before going after an MBA. At University of Chicago, you would be hard pressed to even be considered right out of college. In the classroom, real life experience added much more to the discussion than any freshly minted undergrad. With top tier MBAs, that mix of experience is what truly differentiates a good program and a great program. Often you have professors deferring to students on various topics. Otherwise you just have a bunch of kids kicking around theory.

Okay. I'm fine with it then. I didn't mean to sound like a dick (it's still early here, I'm working on it) but I had read that the best schools (which Mendoza's trying to be) do not allow people in without work experience. If the precedent has been set though, by all means, let's bring him in.

RDU Irish
02-07-2014, 09:38 AM
Full time MBAs would take the night and weekend courses all the time just to network with people with actual jobs. UofC put all three programs on the same classes, same grading scale so you had a few options to sit in on the same class if you wanted. Full timers were almost always noticeably younger and less experienced and obviously job fishing (their full time job is essentially lining up internships/jobs). Evening and Weekend had executives flying from literally all over the country, much richer conversations on weekends than evenings and daytime classes by a long shot IMO.

Full time makes tons of sense if you are going for a full career change, Evening or Weekend for enhancing your current career track. Obviously less expensive to stay employed and earn money while taking an extra half a year to complete than going back into full student mode.

If he meets the same requirements that other ND football players have to in order to qualify for a graduate year at ND why would he not? How much work experience do the ND players have when they apply to grad school?

Riggs said that he plans to attend graduate business school and pursue either an MBA or a master’s in science in business. He’s currently finishing his degree in Family Youth and Community Sciences, studying for the GMATs and doing an internship at a Boys & Girls Club in Gainesville.

I don't know anything about the quality of his undergraduate courses. I do know that after Vanderbilt, UF is considered the academic school in the SEC. He had the opportunity for a quality education, just as Michigan or FSU football players do, if they avail themselves and fight off the coaches.

I can't see the ND coaching staff pursuing this unless they have an understanding with Admissions that a qualified candidate would be considered and they have reason to believe (transcript) he meets the requirements.

As to the question someone asked about a 5th year, pardon the pun but that's athletic not academic. The NCAA allows you 5 years of eligibility to play 4 years. With a year of eligibility the NCAA would consider it a transfer but academcially he would be in graduate school.

Slightly different animal, but I had the same experience with my LL.M. Full-time and part-time students took the same classes, and they were all at night. Full-timers did four nights a week, two classes per night; part-timers did one or two nights a week, and sometimes only one class per night. The result was a good mix of people fresh out of law school and professionals who were working full time jobs. Met a lot of good people that way, and the classroom discussions were also enhanced because you had people coming at it from different perspectives.

zelezo vlk
02-07-2014, 09:47 AM
Because he wouldn't be meeting the requirements of the other students (different than admission to ND undergrads). Work experience is seen as extremely important to an MBA program, which is why only a small amount of undergrads immediately go that route. If Mendoza feels comfortable admitting him, then by all means, but I am hesitant to think that it would be a done deal.

That was me. Initially I did not see if he had obtained the undergrad. I was assuming he had and he would receive a 1-year scholarship to go into the grad program with that being the case as a "ND 5th year." Not like how Crist went to Kansas on his "5th Year" although the same rule applies.

David Ruffer transferred as an undergraduate into ND from William & Mary.

I could see him even pushing to start or being in the rotation at Safety as well. Started there for Florida last year.

At the very least, he should light a fire over some of the guys (namely Shumate) at that position. Hopefully increased competition breeds further success.

Exactly.

It has been posted elsewhere, but keep an eye on Cody. He has graduated from Florida and is looking to transfer somewhere for this upcoming season and play right away.

As Cody cites herehttp://college-football.si.com/2014/02/06/cody-riggs-florida-transfer/ , academics and getting an MBA at a prestigious business program is his main motivation for transfer. ND was thought to be the favorite for him before he decided on Florida, so it could be a fit.

ISD hints in their Intel this morning that ND is all over it, and we could be a possibly landing spot. Stay tuned.
2009 Aquinas team was loaded with talent that Notre Dame was heavily recruiting - Brandon Linder OL, Lamarcus Joyner CB, Payne, and the running back that got away - Giovanni Bernard. Intriguing possibility. This fall, at defensive back, Florida will have Hargraves, Poole, and incoming freshman Jalen Tabor.

If the staff was doing their job, they would have recruited up to or over the 85 schollie limit so this type of individual wouldn't be a consideration for a schollie. There were plenty of low level prospects that they could have given a 4 yr ride to so as to avoid this kind of mess. BK and Co. need to work harder.

Can you clarify, please? I don't want to assume things about your post.

Riggs was a frequent starter in one of the best secondaries in the nation over the last several years. He's interested in coming to ND for the right reasons, and he fills an immediate need (NB/ DB depth, which is why many of us wanted Alexander so badly).

We can't oversign, gray-shirt or accept JuCos, so these sorts of transfers (along with our growing walk-on program) are the only way ND is going to be able to maintain competitive depth. I hope the Faculty Board is willing to work with the coaching staff on this one.

And while I'm sure UF has its own MBA program, I think ND offers certain specializations that UF does not. That might get us around the "in a degree not offered at the current university" rule.

Perhaps this is outdated but in order to be immediately eligible under the graduate transfer exception doesn't the player have to enroll in a graduate program at the new school which was not available at his old school? I would presume a school like UF would have an MBA program?

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. Did they get rid of that restriction? Or is it really easy to get around? "The ND business program has a concentration in entrepreneurship which UF's does not ..." just making stuff up but I wonder if something like that is all you have to show to get around the rule.


Does Cody fit in from a football perspective? It seems like we have a lot of young talent at DB and I don't want to stunt anyone's development. On the other hand, a safety/CB tweener like Cody is a PERFECT nickel corner for us. We could use him just like we used Slaughter a couple years ago. And we have an opening there since we are going to move Cole Luke outside to take over for BJax. I imagine we want Butler to work outside as well.

I had been thinking that Kinlaw might take over for Luke at nickel corner. It'll be good to have Riggs as another body there.

Speaking of Kinlaw, since we didn't get a return man in the 2013 class, I'd like to see Kinlaw get a shot at returning punts. Check out the last few minutes of his junior highlights, which include a lot of plays in which he runs the ball from the QB position (prior to that, the highlights are mostly passing). The dude is lightning quick and shifty with the ball in his hands.

Here are UF's S&P+ rankings vs. the pass (http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/ncaadef) during Riggs' tenure:

2013 - 3rd
2012 - 5th
2011 - 57th
2010 - 25th

They were 5th against the pass the year before Riggs showed up as well. 2011 is a clear outlier; UF has fielded one of the most consistently dominant secondaries in the country recently.

The irony is that your best bet at transfers is always kids who heavily considered your school, but eventually they went somewhere else instead.

Remember, Riggs was part of the fired Weis class... can't exactly blame him for not wanting to come to ND and instead signing with Urban Meyer who had won multiple national championships and staying in state....

Riggs said that he plans to attend graduate business school and pursue either an MBA or a master’s in science in business. He’s currently finishing his degree in Family Youth and Community Sciences, studying for the GMATs and doing an internship at a Boys & Girls Club in Gainesville.

Riggs sees going elsewhere for graduate school as a chance to expand his network. Riggs is the son of former NFL All-Pro running back Gerald Riggs. Cody Riggs said he grew up around a non-profit organization his parents started — Florida Youth Track and Field.

“I want to impact my community with that degree,” he said. “When a student that isn’t an athlete goes somewhere else for graduate school, they’re applauded. Same for coaches when they leave a school and it’s better for their family and future. When an athlete does it, though, it’s viewed as a problem.”

Cody Riggs says reason for leaving Florida was academics, not football | Campus Union - SI.com (http://college-football.si.com/2014/02/06/cody-riggs-florida-transfer/?eref=sihp)

Frankly when that transfer rule was announced I thought it was a stake in the heart for ND.

ND players who might sit on the fence in the past waiting until after NSD to find out if any space was available now had a chance to do elsewhere and several have.

On the other hand the pool of players with desireable talent were extremely unlikely to meet ND academic requirements after 4 years at a football factory. The pool seemed to be largely filled with undertalented students or Masoli types.

This is the first glimmer of hope.

I expect if Kelly is pursuing this, it's based on mutual football and academic interest and with due diligence as I don't see ND dropping the bar for an unqualified prospect if that was the case.

I doubt he'd be available for Spring Ball as he's not in UND now. But he'd have between now and the summer to get up to snuff on ND's defense. And he could hit the ground running come preseason camp. Unlike incoming freshman he neither has to learn his way around a weight room or adjust to the speed of Div 1 ball. He's already accomplished that.

And like the rest of the DBs currently at ND, he's never played an NCAA game in a BVG Defense.

That would likely preclude him from coming to Spring Practices to observe as the practice sessions are spread out over a couple of weeks. But I can't see why UF would (if they could) prohibit him from attending the B&G game and observing. His transfer paperwork would already be in progress if not completed.

I think he'd be a solid addition.

Who knows, he may come in and lock down the cornerback spot opposite Russell, keeping Luke at nickel for one more year. It's no slight to Luke, but Riggs has played and started in a lot of big games.

Or, if Luke is the #2 CB, Riggs could play the nickel, a defense teams are in about 50% of the time anyways (don't know NDs nickel defense %)

Well, he won't be enrolling at any school before spring practice, but it's good to know where he'll be going so he can watch spring practices with the permission of the school's coaching staff. He would also be allowed to talk with said coaches, as he would have already been released, by Florida, and accepted into his school of choice

So, for his sake, the sooner the better.

Serious question. If Riggs does join the team, could this allow one of the younger players who didn't red shirt because of need in previous years red shirt this upcoming season?

For example Shumate, Butler or Luke? Or are they to talented to be kept off the field?

I'm more excited than NSD as this would be a Notre Dame precedent setter and would require cooperation between AD, Admissions, and Administration to make this happen in a short period of time.

Didn't we do this with a formerly Wake Forest punter this past season?

Renting a player for a year doesn't thrill me. If he does make the move he will provide depth and competition.

I'd think Butler would be the only CB that it would really be even plausible with. Another guy would be moving Prosise back to Safety, and having him RS this season to get re-acclimated.

Maybe ... we tried to do that with Kona in 2011. But those guys you mentioned are all serious contributors. I don't think we'd want to shut any of them down.

Honestly, what I think getting Riggs would allow us to do is something I know you'll love, Sherm. Use Kinlaw on offense and special teams. If we have a good 2015 CB class I could see that being a permanent switch. He's the punt returner/slot WR we didn't get in the 2014 class.

Prosise did redshirt though.
