    Nothing says dominating DE recruit like a bow tie.

      A white kid whose name ends in a vowel. Guaranteed Loy CB.

      But I strike first with a NDCb

      Seriously, good film and length. Lets start hanging some meat on him and see how he reacts.

          I'm going to bump a few threads here today with guys that the staff seems to be re-engaging with.

          Aiden being mentioned at BGI as a guy that Elston and Freeman have been on a lot lately.

            Freeman wants all the DEs and OLBs

            Is it possible for the 2022 class to have 8 players with varying degrees of edge rushing?

              Without knowing who all fits that category it'd be hard for me to comment but I'd be pretty surprised if they went that high. I think 3-4 hand down edge defenders seems like plenty.

              I don't think all of this recent recruiting, re-engaging, etc. is indicative of how many guys they are willing to take at all positions. More so to make sure the board has plenty of targets.

                Agreed. I like that Freeman and Co. are acting like they are big swinging d*cks though. He came from Cincy to ND and immediately started acting like he's at Alabama. Charlie W tried to do the same thing and it backfired. Freeman won't fail.

                  in fairness when Diaco was hired he went after the 5 star guys also and he hit on Lynch, Tuitt and Ishaq. Probably worth a gamble
                  What did Davonte do?

                    Right, I kid. Sorta.

                    Agree with 3 hands down rushers minimum. Ford + 2 others seems certain.

                    Then Ziegler + 2 others is also the minimum at OLB

                    So 6...7....8 (a stretch?)

                    He seems to want maybe 2 DT. Likely Hinish + another. And maybe a ILB (Tuihalamaka).

                    Call it 7, 2 DTs, and a ILB for 10 front 7 players? We did pull in 6 in 2021 class and only 4 in 2020 class (8 in 2019 class who will be seniors when current recruits step on campus).

                    Hmm....

                    QB, RB, WR, WR, WR (maybe 2 but arguably a position we need talent), TE, 4-5 OL? (Chan, Tanona, Schrauth, Taylor, Wagner).

                    So 9-11 on Offense.
                    6-7 Edge front 7 on D
                    2-3 Middle front 7 (DT/ILB)
                    Then 4-5 DBs? - NEED 2 corners and 2 safeties minimum

                    Total class size 21-26? (26 seems a bit high haha)

                    Rough numbers....but...big after a 27 man class.

                      I think we will be recruiting slightly higher numbers along with everyone else with the transfer portal wide open.

                        I think you added to my point. Plus Freeman has a lot more cachet coming into the position, so maximizing that is paramount. I like what he's dong.

                          Absolutely, and chances are he will be only at ND for 2 years anyways. He might as well swing for the fences

                            Agreed, which is why this is all very thrilling to see. I really do think he's going to succeed with this template.

                              Maybe so, but Bob had the hair.
