    Dayne picked up an offer from ND this morning.
    Outlined against a blue-gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as Famine, Pestilence, Destruction and Death. These are only aliases. Their real names are Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden. They formed the crest of the South Bend cyclone before which another fighting Army football team was swept over the precipice at the Polo Grounds yesterday afternoon as 55,000 spectators peered down on the bewildering panorama spread on the green plain below. - Grantland Rice 1924 :clover:

        I think he would be a good QB to get if he didn't mind redshirting. Cause when he would be a rs freshman Clausen, DD, and Frazer would all be Juniors. I also think 1 of those 3 will either transfer or move positions

          During his interview it sounded like ND has a real shot with him, and he said he is planning on taking an extended trip to ND in April.

            Dayne Crist and Anthony McDonald are High School teammates and apparently plan on traveling together to ND for an extended trip in April. There seems to be a pretty solid chance that they will be a package deal wherever they go, and thus far ND is the only school to offer both. McDonald is talking like he is a heavy ND lean. When he got his offer from ND, he told Crist that now it is his turn to also get an ND offer. Being the first to offer both should give the Irish an advantage, but with the Poodle around and the USC legacy aspect, a package deal for these guys is going to be difficult.

              Didn't see an offer for a QB coming.

              He's a pretty big kid and athletic for his size.
              Third cousins. For Italians. That's like twin brothers with the Irish.

                Yeah -- surprised that a QB gets offered, but hey -- you can never be too careful.

                Starting a pipeline at Sherman Oaks would be very, very beneficial to this program.

                  FWIW, Crist is actually more highly rated than McDonald at the present time by the recruiting services. Both are Rivals 250 to watch, but Crist is also on the Scout 100 to watch.

                    I think we are very high on Dayne's list. We had a story about him really liking us on Rivals only a few months ago. Plus he said he knows Jimmy Clausen, and that those two are good friends. And I believe he said he wouldn't mind sitting a few years before he gets to play.

                      As I mentioned before I think he realizes that he's an elite talent and that he knows the best thing for him is to learn and refine his skills and become consistant which I understand is his problem.

                        Yeah, they went to middle school together and have been friends since then.

                          I think now that we have 4 QB's already on campus Weis is only going to look at those really special talents that he can brin in at the position and if we get Crist he won't recruit one next year. I think we will start recruiting 1 QB every two years that way we keep the depth at the position yet we aren't wasting talent by stacking multiple QB's in the same class on the dfepth chart. We were so lacking in talent that I think Weis had to take 3 in his first two years just to get the depth and quality of players back to where it should be.

                            I think even if ND gets Crist, Pryor or any other QB in this class that it doesn't effect Weis's recruitment of a QB in '09. I don't see Weis turning away elite QB recruits because he already has some plus you have to take into account that if Jimmy Clausen wins the starting QB job and performs well you can bet that will effect the others QB's situation.

                            My guess is that if Sharpley doesn't win the starting job that he drops to the bottom of the depth chart and most likely will never see the field again. So if Clasuen wins out I believe he finishes out the year and then gives up football to put 100% into his baseball career. I have no inf ofor this to be true and I'm not starting rumors it's just what I believe.

                            So that would leave the team with only 3 QB's and under this scenario with the 2 backup QB's being a year/season ahead of the starting QB and so unless Clausen he gets injured they won't see much if any time. So it's quite plausible to believe that 1 if not both might leave so that the can get playing time.

                            No one knows whats going to happen but you need to be prepared and you don't turn away top talent, let them make the decision if they want to put themselves in a situation where they have to wait a good long time before there given a shot.

                            So IMO Weis & Co. will look to take atleast 1 QB per year. some years they might not take any because they the top talent that they will want won't want to come and be behind 3 or 4 others.

                                  That might be because he listed LSU first when asked about his Top 5, which included ND, but he also said his Top 5 was in no particular order. He also confirmed that he will be at ND for at least 4 days from April 11-14, that can not hurt ND's chances, especially since he will be with Anthony McDonald.

                                  BTW, over on 4HL they are saying that Crist will commit to USC as soon as he gets an offer. Message board rumors! UGH!

                                    He most likely won't get that offer until Mustain picks a school.

                                      Haven't we been through this already with Mr. Mustain. Waiting and waiting while he counts the lint that he's able to pick out of his navel? Honestly, make a freaking decision already...he's already 0-1.

                                        Now correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't Mustain have to sit a year if transfers to another school? so why would USC wait for him to decide considering that they seem to stockpile talent at every position. If they really want Crist they probably could just offer now because if Mustain has to sit a year then he would be a RS Soph when Crist is a true Frosh if I am not mistaken. If I misunderstanding something feel free to correct.

                                          He does have to sit a year for the transfer.

                                                I agree completely, who knows what could happen in the future. Jimmy could earn the starting job while another QB transfers and god forbid Jimmy suffers a season ending injury then we only would have two deep at QB. I agree Charlie should try to recruit one quality QB each year in order to keep our talent pool deep and protect our offense. After seeing the transformation in Brady and the top QB in the country come to ND (i assume to apprentice under charlie) I believe many top QBs will seek out Notre Dame in the future even if they have to sit for a year or two in order to be taught by the best there is in that role.

                                                    That's a good point. You never know. Especially with Mustain. He doesn't seem to be a very good decision maker.

                                                        The Bomar situation was different though. And the NCAA still made him sit out some time.

                                                                  Crist is going to LSU this weekend, and the latest we heard he is still planning on accompanying Anthony McDonald to ND on April 11. He is talking like he is pretty close to making a choice between LSU & ND, and has said that he will make his decision before the start of his senior year. Crist is concerned about playing time, and that would give LSU the edge here. It appears that the best chance for the Irish in successfully recruiting Crist is if he does not take a liking to the Bayou this weekend. If he does not show up with McDonald in South Bend on April 11, he seems likely to commit to LSU.

The telling sign will be whether he shows up at South Bend in April, if he does you would have to agree with the ND lean theory.

Crist who was in LSU last weekend, and is going to Stanford this weekend, did not seem overwhelmed by his visit to the Bayou, which is good news for the Irish. Some Michigan sites have been saying that Crist will also visit Ann Arbor during this trip, Michigan has now offered him as well, but Crist did not mention anything about taking any side trips.

                                                                            Crist & McDonald still talk about going to college together, and ND was the first school to offer both. Since then only Oregon has also offered both, and neither Crist nor McDonald seem to have any interest in Oregon. Crist is definitely still a solid possibility for ND, as he does not seem to be bothered by the QB depth of the Irish. It should be interesting to see what he has to say about the Stanford trip, as based on his brief comments about LSU, a school like Stanford may end up being more competition for ND than LSU or Michigan.

                                                                                Some other guys like Tedford come to mind, but Weis definitely is up there. The Poodle seems to get more polished guys -- Sanchez and Booty both came to LA as studs.

                                                                                I really, really want Crist, regardless of depth.

Before he visited LSU, Crist mentioned that it would not bother him to redshirt his freshman year. That alone would put him 2 years behind JC, and if JC left after his Junior year because he had already graduated, Crist would still have three years of eligibility left with a redshirt.

Either way I think Crist is an "almost must get" kind of guy because we don't know whats going to happen as far as people leaving and what not after this year. I meab you figure if Sharpley doesn't win the starting spot this year he might just go baseball. I figure we lose someone after this year at the QB spot.

I'm not sure that even if JC played a lot this year, and did have enough credits to graduate as a Junior that he would actually leave early. Either way Crist with a redshirt would have the opportunity to play every game in his Junior & Senior year, if he is good enough. Before BQ, and now possibly Clausen, two years as the starting QB at ND was more of the norm than the exception.

This is just me reading between the lines, but I got the impression that he did not seem to be all that taken by that Southern charm. I could be dead wrong, though.

As of yet there has been no independent confirmation of this, but there was shock and dismay that Crist had not immediately committed to his highness. Crist has given no indication that he would be overwhelmed by a USC offer, the shock and dismay is standard fare anytime a recruit receives an offer from the condoms and does not immediately supplicate himself to the Poodle, and beg to be allowed to commit on the spot. Still, if the offer is confirmed, it will bear watching what Dayne says and does in the next few weeks.

As always, Crist is short, sweet, and to the point. He handles himself very well, which is a defining characteristic of an ND QB.
