      Maybe he knows where the last Butkus winner played ball?

        Friends with Chance Tucker, train together. Sounds like Manti fan so I’d expect Polian here.

              Yea he has been quoted as growing up watching Manti and loves how ND plays everyone from the East coast, Midwest, and out West. The Polian win back in February 2009 continues to pay dividends. The entire Polynesian culture (which may land another top D player in Tafiti) in northern Indiana started then.

                  ND certainly has some momentum here. Will be interesting to see how fast this moves. I would think he needs to visit before it goes further. But who knows anymore

                    I like this more if he was offered on the DL rather than LB.

                    Still, we just stole USC's fucken lunch!!!!

                      He’s also long time friends with Jack Nickel.

                        What's the logistics on that?

                          A couple if people have posted about him moving to DL. Do we really want a Butkus winner caliber LB to move to DL instead of staying at LB?

                            If he can play on the edge and cover in space then why not?

                              Jimmy Clausen's bother Casey is Bishop Alemany's coach. Doubt if he's trying to steer NT to his dumpster fire alma mater (Tennessee)
