        Go look and see how many offers Kyle Prater had at this time of the year last year. There is a long list of guys who get late offers. There's still camps, viewing periods, all of next year's football, etc. Relax, if he's good, offers will be pouring in...

          Kelly knows Ohio, the schools, and the coaches. He will need some time to get caught uo in the other areas. Atleast Alford should help in Florida

            There's 11-1/2 months left in this recruiting cycle. This kid is listed at 163-168 pounds which his pretty light for a Safety. He's a junior with lots of time to add pounds but to schools handing out offers there are other thicker kids right now.

            As for 4 and 5 Star kids, Scout ranks Hardy with 4 Stars and as their #6 CB. CB seems more appropriate for his current weight.

            Kelly's known this kid for quite some time. He was on him from the start, offered early, had him to a UC game last September. In an interview with a Maryland recruiting site last October Hardy talked more about UC than Maryland which had also offered.

            This kid had over 70 tackles and 3 ints last year. He's apparently got talent, and grew up with snow and cold weather. Seems like a reasonable offer.

                        According to Lemming Hardy and parents were so impressed with Kelly and ND that he almost committed on Jr. Day.

                          Nice! He told ISD he hung out with Tony de Priest and even Brad Carrico, and he said his parents loved the visit and were 'really into it'.

                          Also said that he would like to take all 5 visits, and that he'll be traveling a lot this spring and this summer to check out other schools, and while he doesn't claim any favorites, that ND is 'at the top' and is in line to get an OV...

                              i think every kid who commits should be a big recruiter. if they want to get the best tam they need the best talent too. look at what crist did his year. he was all over the place talking to people

                                A typo, I know (I know, I know, I know!), but the image of the team in floppy hats with pom-poms on top strikes me funny bone.

                                What the hell! Why not?

                                Picture this: The Fighting Irish emerge from the tunnel at the start of a game wearing Tam-O-Shanters fashioned from an Irish tartan. It looks pretty damn silly at first, doesn't it? Then imagine that the team, as one, tosses tams in the air (a lá The Mary Tyler Moore Show – Gimme a break, I've been living in Minneapolis since 1979!), raises those iconic gold helmets on high, and jams them on to confidently show that "When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going" – while appropriately "dressed."

                                A short-lived "tradition," perhaps. Like the "silent cheer" used a number of years back by ND B-ball fans hoping to distract opponents shooting free throws. I loved it! Bodies jumping up and down, arms waving, signs flashing --- but rather than hooting, hollering and chants of "Air Ball, Air Ball!" --- silence. Not a peep! A very unnerving and disruptive "anti"-cheer.

                                Back to the topic at hand: this guy looks to be a real asset if all plays out. If he, and other commits, help to land additional young men with the academic, physical and attitudinal cojones to (mutually) benefit from time at an ND as a student athlete, "ˇVaya con dios!" Or as BGIF might say "Tiocfaidh ár lá!"

                                  Tam-O-Shanters I could take. It's the defensive play that looked like they were wearing skirts that's the problem.

                                  Hardy could be a part of changing that image. He's a corner that hits like a safety.

                                        Told Scout that 6 schools are standing out for him: Michigan State, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Kentucky and Arizona.

                                        Even better for ND fans, he is visiting with his dad and coach on June 18th-19th while his coach is working one of the camps. He wants to get a feel for the campus and the guys on the team. He's not sure if ND is recruiting him as a safety or a corner. Either one is fine with him...

                                          I am usually very positive on recruiting in general, and I didn't read the article you read L.A., but how does he not know what we are recruiting him as? We have some potential big holes in our secondary (esp. w/ Spencer leaving). We need to be going after this guy hard, and letting him either a) know exactly where he fits into our defensive scheme, or b) tell him that he has the skills to play either position for the Irish.

                                          Hopefully we told him "b" and he just screwed up his words by saying he is "not sure." Otherwise, I hope we are putting more effort into his recruitment as it could pay big dividends down the line.

                                                Hardy should be on campus today. He was scheduled to be a ND camp from 6/16 - 6/18.


                                                OhioVarsity.com rates Hardy their #3 DB in Ohio behind Doran Grant and Ron Tanner.


                                                OSU has not offered. They have two DB verbals so far.
                                                DerJuan Gambrell 6-2 180 Rivals 3 Star CB from Toledo. OhioVarsity has him as their #6 Ohio DB.
                                                Jeremy Cash 6-2 180 Rivals 4 Star S from Plantation FL.

                                                The Bucks have 14 verbals and have offers out to Grant and Tanner and Karlos Williams, Wayne Lyons, Jabari Gorman among others.

                                                For now ND and MSU seem to be the competition for Hardy.

                                                    ISD hasn't been able to contact him but he has been texting Brad Carrico telling him that he loved the visit.

                                                              Per ISD: Sounds like it really went well! His dad gave the quotes in the article.

                                                              He hung out a lot with Manti, and it sounded like that went awesome for him (we are so lucky to have Manti). He really likes all of the coaches. His father described the visit with Kelly as "excellent... He just told us he wants Eiler real bad, and I truly believe that."

                                                              Sounds good. I'll try to post more info as it becomes available.

                                                                I think all the recruits should hangout with Manti, because he is a prime example of what it means to be a ND student athlete..

                                                                Plus if their are recruits who think they might be home sick, Manti can give them his opinion of leaving home.

                                                                Hopefully ND can land Hardy. DBs are a must for this recruiting class imo.

                                                                  Obviously nothing official, it might just be wishful thinking on Grace's part... But hopefully it's true.

He said that he really wasn't feeling ND on his jr day visit in March, but this past visit went MUCH better. Got to hang out with the players, which was huge because he felt very comfortable around them. Also got to see parts of the campus he hadn't seen before. He left feeling very good about ND...

                                                                        I always felt was that this was my destiny. If there was something, that, you have to do or something that you feel like you were called to do, this was it for me. Therefore it was important, that I, made sure that evolve out of my soul and out of the reality of my life. I've come across so many, wonderful people, that share the same dream as I do. Therefore I now exist in independence, along with those who have come across the hard life like I have. -Manti Te'o

                                                                                    It's sounding good... And it looks like Jarret Grace is like hardcore recruiting guys and checking in on ND's prospects...

                                                                                    I'm liking the kids that Kelly is bringing in.

                                                                                          Jarret Grace is definitely a RKG.. Going out and checking in with other ND prospects is awesome... Especially considering he doesn't have to help out with the recruiting process. This tells me that he wants to put together a great recruiting class and be a successful team.

                                                                                            Expected to be Irish

                                                                                            Did I mention how sexy it would be to get some talent in the secondary

                                                                                            Comment

                                                                                              And if he was being honest to Jarret Grace, he told Jarret that he was going to eventually be joining the Irish, possibly real soon.

                                                                                              Eilar would be a huge addition to our team... Now if we could pull in Wayne Lyons that would make me super pumped.

                                                                                                  And if he was being honest to Jarret Grace, he told Jarret that he was going to eventually be joining the Irish, possibly real soon.

                                                                                                  Eilar would be a huge addition to our team... Now if we could pull in Wayne Lyons that would make me super pumped.
