    Nothing says dominating DE recruit like a bow tie.

      A white kid whose name ends in a vowel. Guaranteed Loy CB.

      But I strike first with a NDCb

      Seriously, good film and length. Lets start hanging some meat on him and see how he reacts.

          I'm going to bump a few threads here today with guys that the staff seems to be re-engaging with.

          Aiden being mentioned at BGI as a guy that Elston and Freeman have been on a lot lately.

            Freeman wants all the DEs and OLBs

            Is it possible for the 2022 class to have 8 players with varying degrees of edge rushing?

              Without knowing who all fits that category it'd be hard for me to comment but I'd be pretty surprised if they went that high. I think 3-4 hand down edge defenders seems like plenty.

              I don't think all of this recent recruiting, re-engaging, etc. is indicative of how many guys they are willing to take at all positions. More so to make sure the board has plenty of targets.

                Agreed. I like that Freeman and Co. are acting like they are big swinging d*cks though. He came from Cincy to ND and immediately started acting like he's at Alabama. Charlie W tried to do the same thing and it backfired. Freeman won't fail.

                  in fairness when Diaco was hired he went after the 5 star guys also and he hit on Lynch, Tuitt and Ishaq. Probably worth a gamble

                    Right, I kid. Sorta.

                    Agree with 3 hands down rushers minimum. Ford + 2 others seems certain.

                    Then Ziegler + 2 others is also the minimum at OLB

                    So 6...7....8 (a stretch?)

                    He seems to want maybe 2 DT. Likely Hinish + another. And maybe a ILB (Tuihalamaka).

                    Call it 7, 2 DTs, and a ILB for 10 front 7 players? We did pull in 6 in 2021 class and only 4 in 2020 class (8 in 2019 class who will be seniors when current recruits step on campus).

                    Hmm....

                    QB, RB, WR, WR, WR (maybe 2 but arguably a position we need talent), TE, 4-5 OL? (Chan, Tanona, Schrauth, Taylor, Wagner).

                    So 9-11 on Offense.
                    6-7 Edge front 7 on D
                    2-3 Middle front 7 (DT/ILB)
                    Then 4-5 DBs? - NEED 2 corners and 2 safeties minimum

                    Total class size 21-26? (26 seems a bit high haha)

                    Rough numbers....but...big after a 27 man class.

                      I think we will be recruiting slightly higher numbers along with everyone else with the transfer portal wide open.

                        I think you added to my point. Plus Freeman has a lot more cachet coming into the position, so maximizing that is paramount. I like what he's dong.

                          Absolutely, and chances are he will be only at ND for 2 years anyways. He might as well swing for the fences

                            Agreed, which is why this is all very thrilling to see. I really do think he's going to succeed with this template.

                              Maybe so, but Bob had the hair.

                                  Loy has said he is a take if he wants to come. Does he take Bauman's spot?

                                  This goes back to my size of class questions 5-6 posts above.

                                  Ford, Gobaira + then only one of - Moss? Wesolak? Tafiti? Staff can't say no if 2/3 want to come, right?

                                  And they like Gobaira more than Hamm? Is he taking his spot too? Or is it Hamm is likely a harder pull from Wisconsin? (he also has OSU and Penn St in his final 4)

                                    To put in perspective everyone, Aiden is currently on campus. This is still an independent visit. Coaches still cannot host.

                                        is he visiting ND only or on a midwest tour of his final 4?

                                          Sorry if there was confusion. But that image was Isaac Hamm. Who has the final 4.

                                          Gobaira to my knowledge hasn’t listed a “final” grouping but most have Penn St and ND as his favorites.

                                                      and the kid shows up at the BGI office for an interview....hmm

                                                      Also a NY accent, always a good sign. Also good that he doesn't actually play football in NY because its not exactly a great incubator of talent.

                                                              Says he was under 200 in his sophomore film...and I thought it was pretty decent. His spring season film might be a treat to watch. I do like his pass rush ability, and he thinks he can carry up to 265 pretty comfortably. Intriguing.

                                                                      Comment

                                                                        Absolutely wild to see him develop into a legit football prospect, and I’m sure our football coaches wish we’d done a better job recruiting him! Two years ago he was one heck of an athlete and was big, but was filled out more like a WR than DE. He must’ve seriously started packing on pounds.
