    You're correct on Johnson he was the #2 DE with a Rivals 6.0 Rating.

    Nix is #7 DT with 5.9 Rating.

    Cwynar was #12 DT with 5.9 Rating

    • Nix does matter, as does taking two more DT recruits (Nix counting as one of them.). Weis didnt get the dlineman early, last year only signed one. we need to take at least 4 pure defensive lineman in this class IMO. Nix saying "he cant explain ND" is a good thing. ND is impossible to put into words.

IMO I dont see either of them as better then our current young backup players in Cwyner, Stockton, or Hafis Williams.
        ND doesn't need them to be better necessarily (although it would be nice). What they do need is for them to be comparable and to provide depth on the line, which has been a problem for a while.

        • Specific reasons we need nix and another DT. We currently have none on board for 2010. Found a neat article from ISD talking about our DL recruiting vs. the other elite programs. Link below.

            Is he saying ND isn't recruiting him as hard? Or maybe their offer isn't available anymore? Weird.
            It read more like he couldnt put into words how he feels about ND. The satff is recruiting Nix very hard and they feel very good about him from what i have read. It appears that Miami is not recruiting him anymore. He has not talked to them since the USC game.

            • So summarizing the past 20 or so posts, Miami (there's more than one UM folks) isn't recruiting him anymore but he's going to sign with them and he can't put into words what he thinks about ND although he visited twice on his own dime.

              ???

              jason can you summarize his status in a single post using more than sentence to do so.

              • LOL. I say he ends up at Notre Dame. Is that enough of a summary?

                  I like it a lot better than the 20 preceeding messages.

                  • I think Nix is more of a true Nose Tackle (which we need, and bad) than Cwynar is.

                    Cwynar is more of a run stopping/pass rushing hybrid body type. Nix is a big ox you throw in the middle of a defensive line, to gobble up blockers.

                    I think Nix is at the very top of Tenuta's big board.

                    • Hope Nix does sign with us.

                      • A true Nose plays only in a 3-4 scheme. Instead, we have two DTs... of which Nix would be fantastic.

                        • For what it's worth, Haubert thinks ND still has a very good shot with Nix. Very last question is about Nix. Chat: Scouts Inc.'s football recruiting chat - SportsNation - ESPN

                          • A commitment is not binding. You have to recruit kids the whole year through. Committed players should be in constant contact with recruiters. The fact that Nix has not been in contact with Maimi in 2 weeks shows how Miami feels about his committment

                              Who else is recruiting Nix that we need to be worried about?

                              • A true nose can play in 4-3 as well -- they're golden in running downs and goaline packages.

                                Anyway, I read a fantastic article over at ISD about Nix. Seems like the kid has come a very long way.

                                He quit his football team several times his Fr. year ... and was just an overweight 15 year old who the coaching staff turned into one of the most sought after recruits in the country 4 yrs later. He also had grade issues, but those drastically improved his senior year.

                                This sounds like a special kid -- but a kid that wouldn't surprise anybody if he commits and decommits several times to multiple schools. This one is going to go down to the wire. Also, the coaching staff is going to earn their paychecks keeping this kid on the up and up, imo.

                                • New ESPN article on Nix. Talks about he grew up in bad area but coaches and football turned him around. This is what he said about Notre Dame:

                                  Growing up, Notre Dame was something I didn't know too much about. It was all about the Floridas and the Miamis and Florida States. My mentor told me I needed to go ask somebody, ask my counselor, who is Notre Dame, just tell them you got offered by Notre Dame and look at their reactions. I talked to a lot of people and said I got offered by this school and that school and this school, and I brought up Notre Dame and their expressions just changed like wow, you got offered by Notre Dame. That's when I came to find out it had to be something special."

                                  Nix got to see for himself in late June, camping at Notre Dame for three days. He took an official visit to the Irish campus in September for the Michigan State game, and returned again in October for the USC game.

                                  "I know now that I can fit in at Notre Dame."
                                  Says that he still doesnt know where he will go and make a decision shortly after the season ends, and when he makes the next decision it will be final.

It's probably been said, but the fact that he committed now makes me pretty certain that he was told who the next coach will be. That is even more amazing than Floyd committing right after we got destroyed by U$C.

He called the coaches from LSU and FL and told them the news today (props to him for manning up); nice to pick up a kid from the south over Liar and Miles. Said he wanted to commit for weeks, even months, but finally pulled the trigger after talking with coach Alford today. This is refreshing news in a tough time for Irish fans!

                                                                                        (And props, once again, to CW and the staff for selling the school, not the staff)...

I think he must know who the next head coach will be...IMO a great hire is coming soon. Thanks for being the indicator species, Louis Nix.

It's probably been said, but the fact that he committed now makes me pretty certain that he was told who the next coach will be. That is even more amazing than Floyd committing right after we got destroyed by U$C.

The timing of this is weird though. Do you think he knows something, or am i looking to much into this and maybe he just wanted to go to nd really badly?
