    Massive OL prospect who reportedly got top performer honors at our lineman camp this summer. Said he believes he would have gotten an offer that day had BK been on campus, and that they are awaiting Jr year film. Huge ND fan.

        Cool...It seems like we are in good shape with a couple of prospects from Kentucky. Strange that Kentucky is putting out this many prospects next year lol.

          Kentucky and Indiana both look to have surprisingly strong years, prospect wise.

            Is it me or is ND high on a lot of lists for great prospects for 2013?

            I thought at this point last year that 2012 would be big, but 2013 looks even bigger.

              I feel like the same thing is said every year. The biggest difference I see for 2013, the cream of the crop are not all in Florida, Texas, and Cali. There are a ton of highly touted kids in the mid west. We need to WIN.

                Perhaps, I've only been following since the 2011 class and 2013 looks like the best yet.

                  We expect a great class every year. The best example recently of a disappointing class was 2010.

                  I expect an 7-9 win season next year, which will hurt our status with some of these kids.

                  I like big tackles. I also like our chances of landing a strong OL class.

                      Big dude for sure. But pretty weak form with the disc. ;)

                        Damn, this guy loves ND as much as we do. This guy would most definitely give his heart and soul for Notre Dame. Sign him up.

                          link from his performance at army combine.

                          staff changes aren't just throwing 2012 for a loop.

                            Hunter Bivin, OT, Owensboro (Ky.) Apollo – You can’t miss Bivin. He has a massive frame and moves with remarkable ease at that size. He had a strong performance in the US Army Combine and already holds Vanderbilt and Kentucky offers. New ranking: 75

                                  I'm sure come ND's junior day, we will send out more offers and hopefully to this guy.

                                      Agreed. I was also wondering when junior day is myself. That's usually good for a commit or two.
                                      60% of the time, it works every time.

                                        If Tennessee was one of the first to offer, I would think Notre Dame will offer in the short future...considering the OL for the Volunteers is now Irish?

                                            Does he project as a tackle?

                                            Hopefully he really is a "huge ND fan" and Kelly gets this kid to come to South Bend and maul defenders.

                                              Correction, we are at the top of his list but he has no leader.

                                              Said ND has always been his dream school but he realizes he has to go through the process to make sure it is the right fit for him.

                                              Auburn offered today as well btw.

                                                IMO we could very well get Elmer, Bosch, Bivin, and Pocic

                                                  Haven't we offered all of them?

                                                          A few of the the highlights were of him playing center. I'm not sure I've ever seen a 6'8" center. LOL

                                                            Being a resident of Owensboro, I've had the chance to see Bivin play numerous times. For this reason, I'm very surprised by this offer.

                                                            Let me just say that he plays in a district/region that has been VERY down in recent years.
                                                            He hasn't really performed as well as his older brother did, and he ended up at Murray State.

                                                            I can't say that his commitment would excite me, and I'd say more but I'm scared my comment would be deleted/ I would be banned.

                                                              obviously ND, and the other big time programs saw something they liked to offer hunter.

                                                              hopefully the process works out and he ends up irish...love to get guys that want to be irish.

If a kid is elite, he will have elite offers every time (unless he is a fool with his twitter or in trouble with the law). If elite schools offer you, you are elite. That's simple how it works.

He also was a 2nd Team All-Combine at the Army Bowl; and that is against DL's who are neither 200lbs, nor typically mediocre. If you pointed to a YouTube showing the pancake from your school's 'Rudy', that would be much more compelling a point.

                                                                                              The video in this thread shows quite the opposite; he is physically dominating guys much bigger than 200lbs. He also was a 2nd Team All-Combine at the Army Bowl; and that is against DL's who are neither 200lbs, nor typically mediocre. If you pointed to a YouTube showing the pancake from your school's 'Rudy', that would be much more compelling a point.

                                                                                              Given you have 4 posts total, and all in the last day and all in this one thread, (Haha, I'm not much better as I have around 20 total posts) I will respectfully remain skeptical about your evaluation on this.
                                                                                              Again, I don't expect anyone to value my opinion over any expert, I'm just giving my input.

                                                                                              And just because there is tape showing his positive plays doesn't mean that the negative one I mentioned didn't happen. But at the same time, I do realize that these plays I've seen don't mean everything.

                                                                                              But in the end I think I'll probably be done with my opinion of him, because I don't want to come across as a prospect basher. He's a good player.

                                                                                              And the 4 post thing doesn't matter, in my opinion. I've read this board for about 2 years, but just now started posting.
