  • The Bama Bump is real

    https://247sports.com/player/walter-bob-46101903/

    This kid was unranked, commits to Alabama and is instantly 13th best SDE in the country lol
    What did Davonte do?

    Comment


    • Still think Gobaira is too low but his season just started last night so maybe he can make some noise in the coming weeks.

      If ND is able to land Lucas, he'd be the first 5 star DL commit since the 2011.

          This is the most prospects we have truly been in the running for in a long time in the top 250.

          • ND is really involved with a lot of top talent so I wanted to break it down into tiers.

            • Theoretically and being fairly realistic we could close out our RB, LB, OL, DL, WR, and QB all from that list. And, with regards to DB, a lot of those guys are in play, it just seem very likely we land some guys not on that list.

              OL would be 2-3 of Schrauth, Wagner, Booker, and Rice.
              RB would be one of Hayden, Singleton, and Sawchuk.
              WR would be flipping Saunders, Morris, and Tobias Merriweather (who West coast guys think is an ND/Stanford battle)
              DL would be Lucas, Tafiti, and Wesolak
              LB would be Junior, Cheeks, and Jackson
              QB Wimsatt (maybe Allar eventually enters the picture and he'd be on this list as well)
              DB might be pretty hard to reach. But, recruitniks think there is a lot smoke with Jyaire Brown, Top 2 for Martinez, top 2-3 for Gould, top few for Nwankpa, top 2-3 for Covil,

                    • It’s interesting that he has no WR predictions. There was an article from BGI about Antonio Williams that sounded fairly optimistic. Biggins at 247 thinks it’s ND or Stanford for Tobias Merriweather. Wiltfong said Morris’s best relationship is with Rees. Biggins also said that ND is very much in it for CJ williams. Apparently not the typical Cali WR. I got Juju vines from his interview. And we were damn close to winning that one. Maybe we can get over the top now.

                            I think we all are. I don't want to come across as a dick but I think every fan on every team in the country is in that camp. It's just a matter of whether it's realistic to pencil him into the class. At this point, we are sitting in much better positions with the ones I've listed.

                            • Some QB dominos are starting to fall. Malik Murphy picked Texas a little while back which took them out of the market for Klubnick. Ty Simpson committed to Bama and the Clemson CB’s are now rolling in for Cade.

                                  I don’t believe we have a thread for this guy, CA CB Jaden Mickey. Multiple paid site write ups recently tell us he’s a legit target and one the staff likes quite a bit. Looks like there is a priority on Nickel CB’s which I’m a fan of. Like all the ones we are in on. Would happily take any of them.

                                            Super impressed with this guy. An obvious take at WR for me.

                                                • Good catch unsure why I didn't post his as well. If Freeman is thinking about running more traditional 3 man fronts, I love Orange as a prospect. In a world where they want balance to the class, I could get on board with taking him over guys like Cooper, Artis, and Hinish. That is if we are taking a 2nd DT. Overall he'd fall behind all of those guys except Hinish but as a 2nd option, he'd probably be over all of them but Lucas. Would be interesting to have another true NT on the roster with AK. I wonder if that's the thinking there.

                                                  • Here is a way too early class calculator with mostly realistic targets and some that might take a little more work. It would be a class of 25 and a score of 283.90. Which would've been good for 7th best class, last cycle. It'll be fun to track this and see how it ends up.

                                                              Besides K Josh Bryan last year, that's the first commitment we've had without a profile in my 7 years. I recall one profile where we joked no one had ever committed on their first page... and this happens. So shameful.
                                                              there was a RB out of texas once that im not sure was given the OK from coaches, and eventually signed with Texas State I believe.

Marcus Freeman is showing the administration why they need to pay for high quality, qualified candidates. It really feels like ND is still ascending.

The possibility is they could add another 4* back of maybe Singleton, Sawchuk, Hayden or another. That’s as good as it gets. Okay, maybe it’s not 5* RBU like Bama but that’s playoff level competing in recruiting for RB talent from a stats perspective. WR recruiting has consisted of 5 of the last 6 WR’s being 4* or 5* recruits before the 2022 cycle. We’ll see what Del can do with this class because he’s after a lot of 4* rated dudes again. OL has had 7 out of the last 9 being 4* recruits with Quinn bringing in potentially a couple more 4*’s into this current class. To me TE recruiting and QB recruiting has been interesting. QB they got the 4th out of 4 offers and did a weird job in evaluating the talent and getting it committed. TE has been weird since Mayer committed. A 3* run of Berrong, Nickel, and Evans is not good enough for the supposed Tight End U. They should be choosing who they want as opposed to asking for certain guys!

Appears Evans is more of OL than true TE, as some suspected. If they end up Staes, that is three cycles with top 10 composite players at the position. I think that is pretty strong. Nickel's ranking is an outlier, but how much of that is his early commitment? He has offers from FSU, LSU, Oregon, Iowa, Penn State, VT & Wisconsin. I don't think he is Mayer, but I don't see why he can't be Durham Smythe.

We signed 5 guys last cycle, on offense, that had fairly equal or better ratings than Burnham. We’re going to sign another really good OL. We’ll get a 4 star TE in Staes. We already have one 4 star RB and will probably land another. WR is the only position group that has question marks on offense so there is really no issue of systemic problems with offensive recruiting like people like to believe.

                                                                                                    It all depends on what people are using as the measuring stick, right? If they are using Ohio State, Alabama and Clemson as the measuring stick, then we still have some work to do match the # of explosive players they sign every year. We are definitely on the upswing which is exciting, hopefully our classes start to continuously land inside the top 10 and closer to the top 5. The staff has proven they can win with top-15 classes but the talent delta between top 15 and top 5 is huge and I believe our coaches can go much further with that kind of talent on campus.

Appears Evans is more of OL than true TE, as some suspected. If they end up Staes, that is three cycles with top 10 composite players at the position. I think that is pretty strong. Nickel's ranking is an outlier, but how much of that is his early commitment? He has offers from FSU, LSU, Oregon, Iowa, Penn State, VT & Wisconsin. I don't think he is Mayer, but I don't see why he can't be Durham Smythe.
                                                                                                      FWIW when you look at Cane's ratings, 247 has him as the #31 TE, Rivals the #35 TE, and ESPN the #1 TE. Most seem to agree that ESPN's ratings are worth very little compared to those other services. Nothing against Cane but just putting that out there.

                                                                                                      Also, I can't find it now but I'm pretty sure Evans is wearing a number in the 80's for this spring. That contradicts some reports which said he was starting at OL. Also, Loy recently said ND might be looking at taking 5 OL this cycle. They took 5 last cycle, 6 if you include Evans. Ten in two classes is a lot, let alone eleven. I think Evans has star potential at TE, I hope they at least give him a shot.

                                                                                                      But, if reports are true and Evans is actually an OL, I think Berrong/Nickel/Staes is subpar for Notre Dame TE recruiting. Not a disaster, but that is a position we should recruit better than anyone else in the country, and those guys just amount to pretty good, recruiting wise.
