        Good offer, one of my top 3 DT's for ND this class.

        If you go through his film you see him giving Tosh the business I'n sure. Had a good game against Tosh and their Pioneer's experienced line.

        He's physically just a monster for a kid who's not even a Jr yet. I live a mile from his HS and run on their track. I guess I'll be hanging out at Chaptown this fall.

        Hey Coach Elston, let's get an offer out to Tristan Monday while you're in town.

          CB thrown.

          God bless Coach Freeman. Two years of this and we'll have to give this guy his own feast. I mean, the Ford flip takes care of the miracle.

            If Freeman really closes all the guys that are drawing so much excitement, he’ll be the next HC at ND.

              Perhaps that was his plan all along and he wanted to beat Luke to the punch ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

                His wife done told him, I don't care how you do it but you make sure youre the next HC because me and your 17 Catholic children are never leaving the Promised Land!

                  Why are you throwing out your CB here?
                  "Hey, I'll tell you what. You can get a good look at a butcher's *** by sticking your head up there. But, wouldn't you rather take his word for it?"

                    Freeman's on the case. He's an RKG. Friends with Baker, played football and basketball against him at local HS.

                    Local HS recruiting analysts like ND too.

                        They brought him up today. Freeman followed him on Twitter the other day that's all I've ever needed to hear was they were gonna REALLY recruit him.

                          I did wonder if this was part of the pitch to get Freeman on board. "You come here, recruit like never before, field a top 15 defense and when BK is on his way to retirement in 2024, you have 1st seat for the spot."

                          Not a promise for coach in waiting but more of a "How confident are you in yourself?"
                          I used to be D-BOE34 but I can't login for some reason. Will someone donate some vBucks?

                              Alabama offered. Bama must have peaked at our AZ Big Board. Follows Jake Taylor a few days ago

                                I'll be shocked if he's not in the class.

                                247 moved him into 5 star territory where he belongs.

                                  Do we call this the Bama bump. He had a call with Saban after he got the offer. If Freeman and Elston are able to pull this out then it's time to bust out the blank checks, lol.

                                    I'm not saying this from the usual 30k ft fly over position. I'm saying this from 4 blocks north of his homeroom. A lot of talk about him at the Battle 7v7 and the local guys I know say it's Tosh Baker all over again. Don't be surprised if you see the following quote surface somewhere in regards to Lucas...

                                    "ND won't sign Anthony Lucas IF... Stanford offers and goes 15-0."

                                        I'll let Crus answer this but my impression is it means academics are that important to him and he's ND's to lose because of that.

                                          When we "know" or "feel" someone's going to this school or that school, it's from a collection of other peoples' opinions on the internet. In this case, like Tosh Baker's, I'm right down the street from his school and hang around local people who have face to face contact with hm.

                                          As far as the quote, it was just something said that might end up on a paid site. It infers Lucas is the type of kid ND and Stanford usually fight over but that's not the case this time because Stanford hasn't offered and they'd need to win the NC to get his attention... a jab at their fall from grace.

                                                Any movement with this one? I was really hoping he'd be the final DT for the class.

                                                  Per 247 staff is hoping he can get on campus June 11 - 13

                                                      Premium article here from Christian at ISD for those that have a sub. But I’ll note one point of interest. At the end, he says Anthony is interested in staying at DE in college. Apparently he’s purposefully keeping his weight down in order to do so.

                                                      Thinking out loud for a moment.

                                                      1. He’d be similar to Tuitt playing 5T in a 3 down system. Have no issues with that. And, I could see him playing Freeman’s Big end role similar to MTA.
                                                      2. Would they really only take Hinish at DT if Lucas wants to stay outside? I’m inclined to say yes because both Lucas and Ford can slide inside in a 4 down system but there are some intriguing DT’s out there.

                                                        Lucas, HInish and if there ends up being one more spot, do you go Hanu/Kanu? Or Wesolak? Assuming both wanted in.

                                                        Purely fictitious because this won't happen but just curious. We have so much young depth on the interior, I can see a single scholarship going to Hinish and the staff bolstering the edges.

                                                          These are fun.

                                                          The cop out answer is, I’d take whoever the staff has graded highest. My answer would be Wesolak, as I’m not sure it’s likely both Ford and Lucas stay outside.

                                                          But how difficult is it to say no to a top 100 DT with a connection to ND?

                                                            It's sorta frustrating how two guys that I thought were slam dunk ND guys a month or two ago (Wesolak and Lucas) aren't such a sure thing anymore. Am I jumping the gun too quickly here? Probably need to relax until June with official visits, especially in this case.

                                                              Definitely need to practice some patience here.

                                                              Neither are sure things and 1 of them doesn't even have a spot at the present. So, I can't say you are jumping the gun as getting both seems very unlikely at the present.

                                                              However, I would phrase the conversation for folks sanity as follows. We have a better version of Wesolak in Gobaira and the staff really wanted Agu. So they got the higher rated DE and wanted to gamble on the higher upside DE. Hard to be mad about that.

                                                              On Lucas, it does seem like this has turned into more of a battle than previously thought and we're going to have to wait awhile for his recruitment (he's planning to commit at one of the AA games). So, definitely need some patience with this one. And probably need that patience well past the June OV's.

                                                              With that said, I think we can all feel very comfortable that in the next 30-90 days we'll have plenty of really good news come our way to distract us from these two.

                                                                  That said, I'd still get into the Hero sweepstakes though I think there's a chance of Ewellish returns. Kid should only be Jr right now reclassified the wrong way when you consider his limited experience vs quality comp. SM is a very ND friendly school too.

                                                                  Comment

Freeman is working his tail off recruiting and he'll keep working when these kids get on campus. Knowing how many DT's ND is taking in this class Lucas knows his importance to ND. Is Wesolak set up for a visit? June will be big for ND.

                                                                          I haven't been on ISD very much recently and missed that.

                                                                          My take from reading that and hearing stuff locally. He'd "like" to be able to play DE in college and is trying to stay in the physical realm of a college DE. Good luck. Not impossible but he's the kinda guy who could be 330 and not be fat. When I think of 300lb NFL DE's, I see twitchy guys like Tuitt. I don't think he's that kind of athlete. He's fast, he's strong but I don't know if he'll ever be that sorta explosive guy who plays outside regardless of scheme/package.

                                                                          But hey, he's got all summer and fall to prove otherwise. I'll see all his home games as long as ND's in it.
