      New article says that Prince called the offer from ND his 'biggest so far'. Check out his GPA. Has a friend that attends ND already, and he's been in Catholic schools all his life. Even played against Robert Blanton in high school. Doesn't have a great offer sheet so far, with the biggest being prob Virginia Tech. But he is receiving interest from big schools such as LSU, Georgia, and Miami

        Ever time I see his name, I think of Eddie Murphy from Comming to America. Don't know why... but I start to giggle.

                    I don't know. Good enough to get Corwin's attention. Good enough to get Allen Wallace to write an article on him entitled, "Pass Rusher Supreme".

                    One problem may be his position, he's listed by the recruiting services as a DE. But if you look at the stories listed in his profile on Scout and Rivals the headlines frequently list his position as "LB". Does he really play DE or is he merely being projected there?

                    In a 5/14 only two weeks ago, Wiltfong writing about Aramide Olaniyan noted,

                    Olaniyan Patiently Waits On Irish Always a prospect on ND’s recruiting board, earlier this month, Aramide Olaniyan proved himself to the Irish coaching staff even more. At a Nike Camp in Charlottesville, Va., the 6-2, 201 Olaniyan took home MVP honors over fellow Linebackers Kendall Moore and Prince Shembo, whom both hold ND offers.


                    Kerry Neal was NOT highly regarded when Weis offered, if I recall correctly.

                    Shembo's offers show he has limited exposure. There regional except for ND and SU, both academic restricted schools that have to beat the bushes for qualified prospects, and ILL who I think has a coach on their staff from the Carolinas and has extensive connections there.

                    His exposure isn't going to get much better as he doesn't plan on camping anywhere this summer.

                                Is Prince Shembo comparable to Kerry Neal in style of play, body control, quickness, etc.?

                                  Wants to See ND host USC

                                  Notre Dame Football: IrishIllustrated.com - Notre Dame Football

                                  By Jake Brown ISD

                                  Prince Shembo is still working things out, but there are visits on the horizon for the 6-foot-2, 232-pound defensive end from Charlotte, N.C. Shembo plans to get in an unofficial to Virginia Tech before the summer is out and has already been thinking about making an official visit to Notre Dame when it hosts USC. Hes also hitting it off with a couple Irish commits.



                                  Shembo's apparently added 7 pounds since his season ended.

                                            ND is in really good shape with Shembo plus he has appeared to have formed a good relationship with Kendall Moore. Tennesse is on this kid hard as well, and it sounhds as if he really enjoyed his visit there so i would not call him a lock.

Another defensive stud, which we weren't pulling in past years. 4 star on Rivals, tall and can run. If he had Tennesee and North Carolina and VaTech hats in front of him, and had he been real coy about his recruitment, if he pulled that ND hat we'd be happier than shit. Let's raise a toast to yet another defensive baller CW and the fellas reigned in...

First thing he talked about was the academics, about ND having the #2 business school in the nation, and that he's going to major in finance. He's pumped about going to ND, and he gets along great with Kendall Moore. He's going to play OLB, and they love his ability to blitz and put pressure on the QB. He also had great things to say about Corwin Brown. A recurring theme with Brown (and CW for that matter) that the recruits all talk about is how Brown really cares about not only their football lives but their off-the-field lives as well. It strikes a chord with them, and I'm sure it's something CW stresses in the recruiting meetings.

                                                                                  Welcome aboard Prince!!!

                                                                                                Most of the OLs ND is pursuing don't beat his strength numbers. He's eating and pumping his way to DE.

I believe I spoke earlier in the thread about how our business school would help us out in this recruiting if he is legit about what he says. Glad to see a quality young man join the fold. I hope he's an asset for the football team and for the school.
