  • This kid could really make my weekend going into Saturday - then to be further buoyed by Clausen, Tate and Te'o...

      Are you talking about someone in the Notre Dame Club?
      Sorry for the semantics. Bosster Club = ND Club. Yes, he's a lawyer in Indianapolis who works closely with my father.

      • So is this guy somewhat of a soft verbal or silent commit to us right now or something? There is so much smoke here there has to be something to it.

        • Nothing has been said in the SB Tribune about him. I think he is keeping on the down low for now.

          • Irishandy - come on.... Nix could knock on Lesar's door and ask if he could move in until classes start and that moron would give him room then sit at his word-processor thinking of anti-Irish shit to write and miss the story. I'm sorry he's one goofy bastard. Clueless - but likes to try and push his hater view. Hansen's a nice guy but neither of those guys are ever moving up in the field of journalism. South Bend Trib sport's suck...

                  Good, maybe they don't want him...bad sign?

                  • IrishAndy - don't understand your comment - because I'm local I know just how bad the Tribune is - even with regard to Irish coverage? - - Didn't Haugh make his name and route to Chicago by attacking ND? Lesar is a bad writer and has no where to go. Hansen is a little better - not a true hater as is Lesar.
                    Or, are you agreeing with me - that I DO know - because I'm local. Sarcasm or what?

                    • I really hope we can land Nix it sounds like the irish have opened his eyes to come here also i like the fact that our recruits have been talking to him alot.
                      GO IRISH

                        • Not worried - however - reminds me of the line in the song by John Prine: Illegal Smile: And, all of my friends turned out to be.. insurance salesmen.. but fortunately, I have the key.. to escape reality.. (when speaking of having a bad day and their (friends) sincerity)...

                          • In two years a defensive line of Martin, Nix, Ego Ferguson and Leuders sounds pretty good to me.

                                    I honestly feel we have little to no shot at Ferguson, and Martin still worries me. However, I will take any athletic d-linemen from the South Florida area, and Nix already has the body to play D-1 immediately.

                                    Landing him, in addition to the development of Stockton, Cwynar, Williams, and Newman, does bode well for our future.

                                    Question, our lone DT commit, Justin Utupo, is listed at 6-2 and 240 lbs. Someone please explain to me how they see him putting on the necessary weight to play college football at that position. He needs to put on 40 pounds, at the very least, and his body frame does not seem to be able to support such a gain.

                                        • KLM also came in at like 230 lbs. so I think he won't have a problem gaining the weight.
                                          "No one, and I mean no one, comes into our house and pushes us around."
                                          ND for life..

                                            Definitely not on ND's workout and eating program.

                                              How come? Academics seem to be a priority for him and his parents apparently are high on Notre Dame. I also really like the fact that we get him late in the recruiting process and have a chance to make a lasting late impression. I would say right now we are towards the top of his list with LSU and Oklahoma. Miami is also rumored to possibly be in the mix.

                                                Exactly, other than KLM, at least in my recent memory, I feel like all of our D-linemen are undersized at their positions. When I was at the SC game two weeks ago, our d-linemen looked like cornerbacks compared to the D-linemen from SC.

                                                Look at our safeties. McCarthy and Smith are completely undersized, and the fact that they dont overcompensate their lack of size for speed makes them even more atypical from the normal safety body.

                                                Ferguson has his mom in Miami, and he has always been high on LSU, so I just don't feel like we can break into his top spot. I would love to, but usually the kids who go to Hargreaves end up at SEC or ACC schools.

                                                • USC d lineman are not that big, especially compared to some SECschools but they are ridiculously athletic.

                                                  Anyway back to Louis Nix

                                                    Hope we land Louis Nix, not a good part on Miami staff to not have any contact with him.

                                                      How are they undersized? That comment was pretty silly. I dont know if you really know what your talking about. For every player you think is undersizedm there is a player in the NFL who excels at that size. You must play too many video games.

                                                      • I think when ND wears their deep Navy blues the color makes them look smaller. Harrison Smith is well built for SS and has 4.3 speed. He's probably one of the best athletes on the team in terms of size/speed combination.

                                                        Ethan Johnson seems like a candidate to move outside next year--on base package--with Tyler Stockton likely taking over for him in the middle. Ethan Johnson is a bit undersized at DT but he's there because the team lacks a better option at the moment.

                                                        Base:

                                                        DE: KLM
                                                        DT: Ian Williams (whose play has really picked up recently)
                                                        DT: Tyler Stockton (one of the better DT recruits during Charlie's tenure)
                                                        DE: Ethan Johnson

                                                        Nickel:

                                                        DE: KLM
                                                        DT: Ian Williams
                                                        DT: Ethan Johnson
                                                        DE: Darius Flemming

                                                        This is a much better defensive front than the current John Ryan @ DE and Ethan Johnson at DT in base that we're running out there this season.

Martin will definitely make the 2 deep and be rotated in, but I think KLM and EJ are good enough to hold it down for most of the year.

                                                              • When he's ready... it's not merely a 4 year commitment - a 60 year commitment - ND is the best choice with that regard... I'm glad he's taking his time to be sure. His 1st choice may have been a bit hasty. He'll sign on an ND commitment sheet... and will know at the time it's the best for the rest of his life - not just 4 years in the sun and humidity.

I love our guys now and think they are going to keep maturing impressively but I'm not sure they were at the same place that Nix and Martin are so I can easily see them earning some playing time.

                                                                      My guess is that he is getting heat from classmates and other people in Florida to stay in state. As all recruits are, he's young, so there is quite a bit of pressure on him. He is probably waiting as long as he can so that he doesn't have to hear the negative comments from his peers, etc. about ND.

                                                                                              Also, what does everyone make of the DT position next year anyways? Both starters return for us, and I would assume Cwynar, Stockton, and Hafis Williams will all play bigger roles next season. It would be great to have a space eater like Nix, but if not, I really do not want another DT committ as I dont see guys like Gaston or Allen making any sort of immediate impact. Would rather have a higher rated player at another defensive position of need.

Ethan Johnson was highly regarded coming out of high school and he is now playing lights out. Filer was really good, don't know if he is considered lineman though, kind of the tweener.

I would rather save a couple scholarships for top end talent that have a major interest in the Irish than to land either Gaston or Allen. IMO I dont see either of them as better then our current young backup players in Cwyner, Stockton, or Hafis Williams.
