      I wonder if this means we might be offering Jesse Aniebonam too.

      Is this the update that Loy just tweeted about a DE with a tie to the program?
      If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl.

        My initial read is this guy is a DE and Jesse is a CAT. So he'll still be waiting on williams. But I'm sure will get more here shortly.

            Not to reignite the whole Carter DE/OLB debate but this kid is the exact same size as Carter and everyone is adamant he is a CAT.

                      Every service has this kid rated as a SDE and Carter as a WDE so Im assuming up close there must be some differences in frame but obviously speed. If Carter wasn't as quick and athletic as he is it could be in his best interest to bulk up and play DE but I am betting the staff plans on getting this kid up to 280+, think Tony Springmann. I really don't think they would want to do that to Carter.

                          Love his athleticism and his ability to get off blocks. He'll need to add about 40lbs but good looking project. Looks like he already has a top 5 of Arkansas, Northwestern, Oklahoma, Oregon, and TCU.

                            Agree with Lucky. This kid has a body frame that will allow him to put on a lot of weight which is why people project him as a SDE. Carter, on the other hand, has a basketball players build and likely to play in the 245 range.

                                                      Grant and his family are in the process of setting up summer visits and ND will most definitely get one. Again, he grew up an ND fan so we're likely to get a close look here. Other teams in on him early are Oklahoma, Oregon, and TCU. Kid had 16 sacks last year. He's a big *** athlete thats for sure.

                                                                Actually, I grew up about 5 miles from John Travolta. We used to ice skate at Dwight Morrow in Englewood. Him and me and about 500 other kids from the county that didn't know each other. He went to church at St Cecila's about a block and a half from my Dad's bar.

                                                                St Cecila's gave a young man named Vince Lombardi his first coaching job after his college career was over. He was one of the Seven Blocks of Granite at Fordam under HC Jim Crowley of Four Horseman fame (I never saw the Four Horseman but OMM told me about when he went to class with them) and OL Coach later to become the greatest coach in college football history, Frank Leahy.

                                                                So goes my 6 degrees of separation from Hall of Fame Football to D.A. (duck's ***) haircuts.

                                                                The character Travolta played in Grease was from my older sister's HS years. He was in HS the same years as my younger sister. BTW, he dropped out of HS to play a role in a touring company doing the musical Grease (years before the movie).

                                                                The Irish Christian Brothers at my HS, Bergen Catholic, (eat ****, Iroman) didn't tolerate Greaser haircuts. One of the highlights of my largely forgetful HS years was having my name read out once over the P.A. System by the principal, Brother A. X. Keane, as needing a haircut. For 15 minutes I was one of the cool guys. Fame is truly fleeting.

However, I don't think its a lock. He has some other good offers to consider and that may push this out a little.
