    Haha. Yep, he is a lanky dude.

          No argument there at all. But that guy writes for a sports pub out of Nashville and does free lance stuff for the SEC. Just a piece I ran across.

          We'll see what happens, I'm looking forward to ND finally landing their first 4.4 WR that was committed to them but who visited his local blue blood twice in the week before his OV... after wiping his commitment info from his twitter header and leaving home town team's offer tweet on the top of his feed in the same week.

            • Until he puts "@ NDFootball Commit" in his Twitter bio like he does his 7v7 team, the @ LABootleggers, I'll say this story closes with an alternative ending.

                “WR | ND Football” on IG doesn’t wet your beak?

                • Singer said he’s hearing visits are over and he’s locked in post this weekend

                  IMO I can understand anyone that still is skeptical but we’ll see

                  • I am curious to see if he gets a bump or not if he sticks.

                      He’s getting weighed down by Rivals but should get an increase everywhere. Rivals evals are an embarrassment, idk how they try to compete w/ 247 unless they fix it. Scale that no one understands, almost never update.

                        He went from an 86 rated WR to an 87 rated ATH on 247 last week

                        • A 4.41 40 and a 40 inch vert at 6’3+ should get you top billing on any ATH tag a site has. That’s elite stuff.

                          Comment


                          • Yeah he has elite numbers. Ratings are off on this one.

                            • the other thing is, like he said the Singer, he played 2020 injured.

                                        i feel like i wont accept this kid is gonna be at ND until signing day. Bad feeling ND gets Deontay Greenberry'ed by him somehow
                                        What did Davonte do?

                                          If I'm not mistaken, we identified and offered him pretty early, didn't we? I feel like kids appreciate the P5 teams that recognize their talents early and tend to stick with them. Wasn't Kyle Hamilton a middling 3 star recruit when we got him, then he tore it up at camps and eventually became the 5 star the staff knew he was?

                                          Hoping our proactive approach is the difference maker here and he sticks around. His athleticism and size sure is exciting.
                                          My two favorite football teams: Notre Dame, and whoever's playing Michigan.

                                            Hamilton had already blown up with offers and visits prior to his commitment. He visited ND and then OSU on back to back days. Then took in UGA and UM visits, prior to committing. In fact, I think there were a couple of UGA visits mixed in there. Though his network rating increases largely came after the fact.

                                            Walker is a little different as he got the offers and took the visits after his commitment. We'll see if the result is the same.

                                                well, your skepticism is honest and with historical reference.

                                                So was Didymus' (Thomas)

                                                4 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus[a]), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”

                                                But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

                                                26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”

                                                28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”

                                                29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

                                                              I'd go to every BBQ I was invited to if the travel and accomodation was paid for.
                                                              Get him up there recruiting Tate and Moore.

                                                                It’s not paid for, it’s an unofficial visit.
                                                                If you look at the kids confirmed for the Michigan BBQ compared to the ND BBQ, it’s hilarious. Michigan has a lot of 3 Stars and only about 9-10 total kids. ND had 9-10 top 250 kids alone…

                                                                    That’s what was so impressive about ND’s, a handful of kids flew in & stayed the night on their own dime.
                                                                    I could be mistaken, but I want to say four of the five 2023 kids coming are all from Michigan & the 5th is 90 minutes away in Ohio. Nobody is spending their own dime to fly in from the 2023 class.

                                                                                Doesn’t mean he won’t be there but if comparing it to NDs I’d put it as the type of Maybe tag we put on Aamil Wagner at best as an example.

The early June felt like yeah go see what’s out there, camps, somewhat close and then come up to ND and that’s it. Traveling all the way up to Michigan post ND OV is different level of wavering

It all just looks so much worse than it is. But it will continue to look that way until there is another narrative for the media to run with.

                                                                                            I get the appeal to stay south. I get the appeal to want to visit other big time programs to build his brand. I don’t like it, but I get it. But…fricking Michigan. This would be a rather big failure to lose him to Michigan.

                                                                                            Comment

If he’s visiting other schools then we should look at him as a recruit not a commit. But don’t stop recruiting him.

                                                                                                To LL’s point ability we recruiting, I think it shows the difference between the offensive staff and the defensive. The defensive staff gets to start dedicating its full effort to the 23 class as we’ve pretty much got our 22 class taken care (minus a recruit or two obviously). The offensive staff isn’t there yet and is going to be behind in the 23 class. Definitely worried about it.
