          Did he get an offer-offer or PWO offer?

              Would be the earliest PWO in history.

              I will admit, flags were raised but I did it out of respect for the family.

                He's a 22, so I assume straight up offer.

                  Would make more sense if he was a class of ‘21 and we were trying to get Hinish to come back for another year.

                      Totally missed that, thought he was a '21.

                        This. One does not Love Thee in their offer tweet and not commit.

                        Don't remember the last time an offer went out where the recruit didn't have a profile.

                          His brother has been in the Dline rotation for three years now, and is killing it this year. Might be surprising that ND is the first to offer, but with this weird year and limited access to recruit personally, ND is a better position than anyone to evaluate him.

                                  Loy is reporting that the staff will be "heavily recruiting" him, so I don't think this is a lightly thrown out "because he's a sibling" offer or some carrot thing to keep him on in case they circle back later. I think they really like him. Loy also threw in a CB because duh.

                                      So what does the board look like then for DT? I thought it Miles, Artis, Curry were above Hinish? Did I miss something?

                                      Same goes for little Bauman. I thought the DE board was kind of set with Tyson Ford as the SDE and Devon Jackson/Tafiti as the Vyper? Again did I miss something?

                                        Not a profile here. A profile on 247 or Rivals.

                                              I would be very surprised if hinish doesn't pick ND.

                                                A few weeks ago, I'd agree. But with Freeman on board I wouldn't be surprised if we land higher-rated prospects on our board and Hinish doesn't get the green light to commit.

                                                  folks on ISD reckon he's a take, a glue guy and hes a better prospect than his older brother and further along in his development now than his brother was at same age

                                                    With the same intangibles. I'm very down with Donovan being a take

                                                      Yeah, he's a take IMO.

                                                      Hell, even if you have 2 other higher ranked interior guys, you still take him. A bigger Hinish with the same kind of motor, leadership and want-to, that's hard to come by.
                                                      It's Just a Ride.

                                                        the first play of his tape was enough for me.

                                                          I think we both take him AND get in on bigger fish. Hinish will be a nice depth piece.

                                                          That said, he'll actually be a good barometer to determine whether or not Freeman and Elston were able to take DLine recruiting to the next level. If he's starting...like ever...we know it's status quo. If he's a quality depth piece then the staff will have done a great job at the position(s).

                                                              Kinda surprising to me that Donovan doesn't have more offers. I get that he's undersized, but so was Kurt and look how that turned out. Is he that much worse of a prospect than his older brother?

                                                                      I think the concern is if Kurt is undersized, what does that make Donovan? It looks like he might be an inch or so shorter than Kurt. I think Donovan would be a valuable teammate and a great fit for the program but I don't know if he's playing much with the new depth chart.

                                                                      Comment

The problem, as Lucky has pointed out, is that Donovan looks to be smaller than even Kurt. In a year where the staff is in on so many good DT prospects with great size, and considering DT recruiting from the past few cycles, Donovan's spot that would have been guaranteed before, might not happen. It's too bad, because the program could always use a Hinish type guy.

Kurt said his brother is an inch or two taller. That would put him close to 6’3 or above. If true that changes quite a bit as everything I’ve ever seen shows he’s an inch or two shorter. He’s either grown a lot or Kurt stands on his tippy toes when they take pictures together, lol.
