        FWIW, Wiltfong said he like Sykes as a pass rushing LB in the 3-4. Went on to add that he's athletic enough to play all 4 LB spots and will be able to add the necessary weight to do so as well.

              THIS! Mostly because of the "thumper" comment!

                      What happened with Miclisee? He looked a true thumper ILB and he desperately wanted to be Irish!

                            I'm not impressed with his offer list, but we need LB's, get him signed up. Being from Illinois we shouldn't have to worry about distance.

                              Wouldn't be surprised to see this kid on campus soon with a commit to follow. No inside info. Really like this kid.

                                      @ISDUpdate: 2014 IL LB Nile Sykes (@Ninth__Cloud) is firmly on #NotreDame radar. Chuck Martin visited him on Thursday (Premium) http://www.irishsportsdaily.com/recr...ps-in-on-sykes

                                        He does a good job getting off blocks. Solid prospect.

                                          Wiltfong just spoke with him and Steve is reporting that things could happen quickly if this kid gets an offer. Wiltfong is pretty sure he will be Irish if given the chance

                                              That would be my guess. From Wiltfong: he's waiting to "connect" with Martin and then "there might be a story you want to read."

                                              The ISD article said that they planned on talking again tonight. Martin need to clear something with Diaco and Kelly before offering?

                                                              Perhaps the staff could set up a OV for the BYU game.

Itll be interesting to see how he develops wherever he ends up. Adding weight hurt Kendall, but weight was needed. This kid has the same movements, and same build as Moore. Good prospect though
