    • Awesome. Huge pickup!

        I'm sure Tyson knows that. I suspect that he would be considering a science major pre-med school or whatever for law.

        Chances are that he would struggle with an BA in television and communications or some sort of sports hospitality (although hospital is in the word) degree.

        It's all good and we should be damn happy to land Tyson.

        Cheers and Go Irish!!

        • Fantastic!!! Welcome Mr. Ford!!

          • Let's be honest here. Elston did a good job for a kid who belongs at ND leading up until OU offered but he was gonna finish finish second to the Sooners until Freeman flipped it back to the Irish.

Then he got kicked out of school at Mizzou for getting involved with people and things he shouldn't, and last I checked was in jail. That whole thing just made me mad. Maybe the kid was a bad egg, but no one in his life did him any favors by directing him away from the Irish.

                  I believe his parents worked hard to keep him close to home. It didn't end up well but I don't think their thought processes had anything to do with Notre Dame itself.

                      That’s not an accurate depiction of DGB’s upbringing. Not excuses for future choices but the kid had a tough life and I wouldn’t blame him either for staying close to home. I won’t derail Ford’s thread more but that’s a oversimplification.

                        Absolutely

                        And I can see him getting there with Rivals since he allowed them to scoop 247.

                                        No, he’s listed at 245 on ESPN and 247, 250 on Rivals.

                                              • Read an article on The Athletic about his recruitment. Key points.

                                                1. ND was his solid choice until Lincoln Riley called late in the process.
                                                2. He actually flipped to OU and told Elston as much.
                                                3. Freeman calls him as soon as he's hired and makes a huge impact.
                                                4. He thinks it over and flips back.
                                                5. Mother noted how Riley contacted them a lot "Even though he's a very important person".
                                                6. Article read like Kelly had little or no contact with him.

                                                  This is just an old dogs new tricks situation. He's not going to suddenly start recruiting now. Which makes hiring elite recruiters like Freeman absolutely necessary.

                                                    Didn't Kelly essentially say a year or two ago that he'd stop being lazy and be more accessible to recruits? Thank goodness he's at least bringing on aggressive recruiters.

                                                      Number 6 is irritating . I wonder how well we could recruit if Kelly cared as much as a Saban or Dabo on the recruiting trail. We hear academics as the excuse all the time why we can't recruit well but I really wonder if a lot of it is effort.

                                                      Oh well, guess it is what it is.

                                                        Per 247, we've averaged the 12th ranked class over the last 5 years (including the 2021 class). There's no reason to believe we wouldn't be in the 8-10 range on a yearly basis if Kelly weren't lazy.

                                                          I wonder how aggressive Rees is on the trail? We definitely need Rees to match Freeman. Problem is Rees doesn't have the same rep as Freeman.

                                                            “A lot of coaches will try to become really close friends with recruits, but that's not Nick. He's matter-of-fact and all business," said Todd Grantham, who was a defensive line coach under Saban at Michigan State in the late '90s and is now the defensive coordinator at Louisville. "When coaches do become buddies with the recruit, and then the recruit gets on campus and the coach is no longer his best friend, that's when problems can occur. But Nick just lays it all out there: 'Here's what we have to offer both academically and athletically. I'll launch you to a NFL career. Take it or leave it.”

                                                            From a B/R article on Bama recruiting. Bama recruiting works because he is damn hard on his assistants to recruit. But don’t think Saban is calling a recruit 10 times with his wife. The above quote from Grantham I’d say fits how BK approaches most recruits, Saban just has way more cache when he does it

                                                                      Then the beat reporters that keep their ear to the ground will write articles likes this almost immediately:

                                                                          And the HC can’t recruit the whole board. So you could take every program in the country, pick a recruit, and do the same. It’s completely unrealistic. So, what they do is break down a group of prospects that Kelly is in contact with personally. Him and Polian were lead recruiters for Wright and TMA. But, that won’t make Sampson’s article.

                                                                          These articles like to paint Kelly’s recruiting efforts as 0. Is it a 10? Doubtful. But it also isn’t nothing.

I think the simplest answer is the best one, you think if a bit more effort would automatically land better recruits was a fact BK wouldn’t just do it?

                                                                                                      Wishful thinking here, but I'd love to see Elston be at ND what Larry Johnson was at Penn State for many years. No matter who the head coach is.
