    He met with Lewis and C. Brown this week, per B&G.

      I think that was a vist to keep Smith at ND. If he leaves to I am going to quit looking into recruiting and just see who they get on signing day.

        Other than someone who claims to have heard a rumor, or has seen a rumor circulated on a message board somewhere, there has been no other indication of this.

        Who knows, maybe he decommits, it has been a robust year for recruitment upheaval; but I'll only worry about it if some reputable source indicates he is swaying.

        Whatever happens, I have a gut feeling that this guy is going to be a very special player.

          His body type, athleticism, and ball hawking skills fits perfectly for what's needed by a FS in a 3-4 defense.

            On scout it said that he talked to Minter and is still sold on ND. They said Minter still sold ND even after he was fired. I respect Minter for that.

                But didn't Minter already know he was gone before it was official? People were saying he knew his contract wasn't going to be extended, even while he was recruiting/during the bowl game, etc. Maybe that was false, but either way, you gotta love the guy for doing that.

                  If Minter did that, then he knows that ND is a special place. That is what the Notre Dame spirit is all about

                      Ditto! Then again you would think that Minter has some special fondness of ND since he did come back for a 2nd stint. Being let go as DC, yet still able to show that he's a person with good character. I wish him well in his next endeavor, football or not.

                        Yeah, I just read it for myself. Too bad Willingham's staff couldn't do the same for the kids that ended up jumping ship when Ty was fired.

                                  Nice. I'd have guessed a slightly faster 100m based on his 40yd times, but he is obviously an outstanding athlete. State title....that says it all!!!

                                    A freshman at my school runs a 10.6 40 yard dash. The same kid is 135 lbs. and benches 260.

                                          No, more like 5'4", but then again he is just a freshman in high school.

                                            5'4 for a freshman is real small.

                                              True, but his brothers are around 5'10"-5'11", so he'll grow up just fine.

                                                I think Harrison will be one to watch, maybe from late freshman year on. For the record, Zibby had a reported 10.4 100m in HS, a full second faster than Smith. 11.4 and 4.38 40 just doesnt compute. Maybe its quickness but not top end speed. No knock on the kid, just trying to understand the correlation between 40yd and 100m. Like I said before, he obviously a great athlete.

                                                  I think it has to do with him being a decathlete. Training for ten events doesn't allow you to specialize in any. They are good at the pole vault, but not better than some who just pole vaults

                                                    Looking again, he destroyed everyone. These are state finalists, best in the state! He won the LJ by 1.5 ft, SP by 7ft, HJ by close to a foot!, Discus by over 10 ft. He beat some of the guys in the Discus by 30ft!!! I'd guess that at 6-2 200+ he was one of the bigger guys, and he was even 3rd in the 100m.

                                                    according to the article above, he had never done the decathlon before.

                                                        Harrison Smith made a statement today. Anyone have any thoughts on his impact this season?

                                                          Representatives from at least four different teams have called Notre Dame's Harrison Smith the best safety prospect at the Senior Bowl.

                                                          One scout predicted Smith would be a second-round pick, and ESPN's Todd McShay said the Notre Dame star looked "absolutely shredded" at nearly 6'2" and 212 pounds. NFL Network's Mike Mayock went a step further, saying he's heard multiple first-round grades on four-year college starter. The Boston Globe's Greg Bedard suggested "keeping an eye" on Smith as a prospect of interest to the Patriots. Related: PatriotsSource: Chicago Tribune Jan 27 - 9:17 AM

                                                                      Almost all of those picks came at the end of the 2010 season. Seemed like a fluke at the time, and 2011 seems to have confirmed that.

                                                                      It seems to be schematic. Diaco's system simply doesn't produce TOs. One of the very few concerns I have about him.

                                                                      To echo Philly, Smith will likely destroy the combine. His freak athleticism was evident as a recruit, and it never really went anywhere, even when he was the goat under Charlie. I can't wait to watch him succeed in the NFL, but he will be sorely missed in 2012; he's easily one of the most underrated ND players in recent memory.

                                                                                          Thanks for pointing out that one game in his career. Against a QB that loves throwing picks.

                                                                                          Good for him. How did he do THIS year in that department? As opposed to pointing out one game, how'd he do overall??

                                                                                          That's what I was aludeing too.

                                                                                            Hayseed does deserve props for the last 2 seasons at ND, I don't care how you try to poop on it.
                                                                                            So what props did he deserve this year?? How'd he live up to that pre season all-american blabble?

                                                                                            Again, he was a decent player. Hope he destroys it in the NFL.

                                                                                                Your own negativity turns you into a skeptic. Not our praise of a senior captain of a great defense.

                                                                                                It isn't all about interceptions and TD's for safeties....

                                                                                                He was a great leader on the field, a sure tackler, and was always around the play.

                                                                                                Edit: I wouldn't expect much in the way of support from this board when it comes to calling ND players "mediocre" or asking "what have they ever done?". We tend to enjoy ND football here
