    6-2/180 lb CB as a Soph. Good luck staying at CB.

    Dad was an All American at Iowa State in track and ran for Nigeria in the '96 Olympics.

    Here's a recent story about him:

        For 6-2... that's impressive (especially for a football player)

            Sounds like ND will heavily be in play going forward.

                Yea, that’s some unreal athleticism on display. A guy that could push for PT immediately at S is a big need in the class and he seems to fit that bill.

                    Bama offered.

                    There are a few litmus tests out there for Freeman and staff. This is one of them. If they can land Xavier, it will be an all timer.

                    Xavier has got to see a starting gig upon arrival in a DB friendly system, as very attractive, right?

                      He practically steps into Kyle Hamilton's role, right?

                        Yeah, he's got Clemson and OSU as well, so more than one litmus test to pass. IMO the big selling point is going to be early playing time or opportunity to play for a NC ring. Let's see if Freeman can outsell Ol' Nick.

                              I'm assuming Iowa and Iowa State have about as much chance at signing him as Drake or Iowa PreFlight, correct?
                              It is no coincidence that the growth of modern tyrants has in every case been heralded by the growth of prejudice.

                                  that stinks, would love for ND to land him since he's a kyle Hamilton clone.

                                      I only have 247 and idk if I’d classify it to that extent, doesn’t give away much, a OSU lean maybe but really more of a 3-4 group is how I’ve read the updates

                                          That's better then the opposite IMO.

                                              Notre Dame


                                              How is your relationship with Notre Dame?

                                              "I have a really good relationship with them. They got the new defensive coordinator around February or something. I've developed a good relationship with him. The primary recruiter, (safeties/defensive backs coach Chris) O'Leary, he's been recruiting me since my sophomore year. He took stops out to the school and everything, so I have a good relationship with him. I talk on a daily basis with him.

                                              What appeals to you about the Fighting Irish?

                                                Wait- It looks like up top he has a Norte Dame offer. Is this an inside joke I missed?

                                                  what would the joke be? He's a bonafide stud.

                                                    A lot of the recruits will report the offer as 'Norte Dame' on Twitter, either as a spelling error or else how they think it's spelled upon early exposure.

                                                    Not sure if it's intentional in the OP though lol

                                                      Reading the tea leaves, It sounds like this is a long shot. Think he would mention Freeman by name instead of "him".
