      If u haven't been checking the 2014 Master List:

      Bonner was offered this morning and could jump on that offer and commit per Wiltfong. He was offered as a CAT but can play all 4 LB positions.

              Ha. This looks like a depth move, if he can really play any LB spot.

                Hmm. Per 247 he's a three-star. Only other BCS offer is Illinois.

                Jonathan Bonner

                Though this local story has him offered by Mizzou, MSU, Purdue and Indiana too.

                Did he come to our camp or something?

                  Expand the 247 list, they have Louisville, MSU and Mizzou plus others with offers

                    Any relation to Anthony bonner? Great frame, athleticism, and intensity. We need!

                      He said in a Rivals article recently he may go to NDs camp, I'm guessing he did.

                            Love this kid. Would add a lot of intangibles to the ND D. Love the length, and motor

                                So we evaluated him in person at camp?

                                  Notre Dame and Michigan State both offered another lowly ranked DE almost exactly a year ago today, Demetrius Cooper. He ended up committing to MSU.

                                    I still think Cooper is going to be a beast. Kid was so long and athletic.

                                      It won't be official until he talks to Kelly but he is already calling the other schools and thanking them for recruiting him.

                                        I don't know about this. The staff needs a tutorial on using the 247 compositie ranksings. Just go down the list with your offers! There are a lot of guys ranked above Bonner!

                                          Totally. I always wanted that kid.

                                                  If that 240 pounds is accurate, he probably grows into a defensive end

                                                    Do we have any sense as to what precipitated this offer? He showed out at camp and shot up our board? Fading with better prospects at the position? Some combo of the two?

                                                      I would feel more comfortable with this offer if we find out he was at camp

                                                      Andrew Williams is 250. Wiltfong says the staff likes him as a CAT with the flexibility to play all 4 LB positions.

                                                        I'm assuming we will, after Loy and the others get a chance to talk to him.

                                                          I'm assuming they saw him at camp and really liked what they saw. With that said nobody really knows what's going on and probably won't until its official and the various sites interview him.

                                                            I think its Andrew Williams change of heart PLUS a good showing.

                                                              Andrew Williams has been trending away for a while so I don't think its that. The writing has been on the wall for sometime, hasn't visited in 6 months and has cancelled two visits since then. I don't expect him to visit again either.

                                                                  We've seen it the last couple cycles. This offer and speedy commitment reminds me of the John Turner offer.

If you are going to opt for plan B guys for depth, wouldn't you want to do it at a position where you don't have any depth? When Turner was offered, we were desperate for safeties.

                                                                            Turner is/was a kid was has an great physical skillset, but who just doesn't seem to be a great football player.

                                                                            Hopefully this is more of a case of a kid getting put and defensive line because he is strong, and now coaches realizing he can probably play LB.

Also to me shows the staff knows that they are striking out with a couple elite guys and need depth. Hopefully I am wrong but I consider Williams gone.
