Steve Wiltfong, IrishSportsDaily, notes OT Eric Kohler has offers from ND UAZ ASU UW SU CAL and UCLA. Eric has only seen CAL and UCLA so far. He stays in touch with Polian, Verducci, and Weis. He's also hearing from OU and ORE. Wants to major in business. Hopes to make a commitment before his senior season.

7/8 Per Biggins ESPN:

Kohler was leaning pretty heavily to UCLA and CAL but that changed after an unofficial visit to UW.

I loved it at UW. My visit was pretty incredible and right now, the Huskies are my top school. Nick (Montana) is talking to me about UW every day and the coaches and especially Coach Sark are rercruiting me very hard right now. UCLA is a close second and CAL is right there too. Honestly, there is not much separating any of the 3 schools, they're all very close. I'm hoping to make my decision in Aug and I would like to visit all 3 one more time but I'm not sure I'll be able to.

Other offers include UAZ, ASU ND ORE and SU.

And he also said that the only reason that ND wasn't in his top 3 is because he hasn't visited yet. UW is sitting pretty, but if visits like he said he wants to, obviously our chances go up a ton...

Good news for ND. He will be coming to ND this Thursday, per ISD. This is such a position of need that we better hope he enjoys it as much or more than he did his time at UW...

I believe Rivals is the only one listing him at Guard, #3.

Scout has him at #15 OT

Blue & Gold lists him as an OT.

ESPN list him as an OT.

Kohler is about the same size as Ryan Harris when he committed. Kohler's about 10 pounds heavier. He also benches about 35 pounds more than Harris did on a comparable timeframe.

ESPN comments on Kohler:


Pass protection is sound and long arms help keep pass rushers off his body and pads. Needs to keep hips down on pass pro; tends to get high and legs get locked out and as a result can't recover at times. Kohler has some athleticism but really needs to work on flexibility and change of direction. He could be a right tackle at the next level and could develop into a left tackle with some fundamental maturity and lower body agility work. He is a raw talent with a huge upside.

Hard, they sell out early as they're on campus near the stadium so you don't have to pay $40 to park your car. They have a website with details.

Good news! Steve Wiltfong of ISD is reporting that ND moved into Kohler's top 2 with UW. He'll decide within a month. Great news; will still be a super tough get out of UW with Montana and Montana's mom recruiting them hard, but after you visit ND, it's tough to turn down!

And now.......bad news! New Scout article quotes him as saying he has UW #1 and ND #2, and he'll decide at the end of August. One caveat: it was a UW Scout article, so he might have just been telling them what they wanted to hear. He did say some great things about ND and that we are on the rise with him, but the fact that he just left ND off of a high and still has UW as his #1 doesn't bode well for us, esp considering that he won't take any OV's and ND is so much further from his family than UW. EDIT: I forgot to add that he's taking his last unofficial to UW with Nick Montana, and then he'll make his decision. Let's hope his dad, who loved the ND visit, will be on ND's side and get in his son's ear. But it sure doesn't look good...

Irishandy probably made a mistake...it's UW all the way, followed by ND. He's making another trip with Montana up to UW, so since we're still in 2nd, and they get the final trip before he makes a decision, I find it very difficult for ND to make up room here, unless something goes wrong n his trip. And usually those trips are all roses and ice cream, so it'll be tough to get him...

We all saw this coming. I'm not in panic mode yet as far as O-Linemen go. We still have a chance with Seantrel Henderson and I am sure that there will be a few big guys that will come out of nowhere now that the high school seasons are getting started. This has to be a major focus of the recruiters now!

goldandblue
08-25-2009, 12:16 PM
I'm sure it probably is, I really do think we see some shuffling around if Notre Dame has a very productive year and a BCS bowl appearance. I think there will be players committed elsewhere that will end up at Notre Dame if we can have a good season. (Just to note, I do not think Hurst will be one of those.) ESPECIALLY when we beat USC.

08-25-2009, 02:44 PM
Guys, why worry now??? More than ever, we win, and we're golden (tate). Lose, and we lose recruits anyways 'cause bye-bye CW. But if we win, that means the O-Line is doing their thing. And with most of them graduating, players will want to come. All we should be worried about from here on in is winning, and esp competing against USC. We do that, recruiting will take care of itself...
