    I wonder if this is a PWO or a scholarship position with Yoon still having seasons left? Got 3 CB's today from Loy, Fonger and a Terps guy. They don't usually mess with PWO's, do they???

    Has a 90% TB percentage. Also lists a 4.69/40. At 6-3, 190 and sub 4.7's, he could slay some wood.

    Backup FS?

      Per Loy, he was on campus this weekend.

      Rumors are that Yoon had surgery and/or was suffering from knee tendinitis last season and there are health questions going forward.

      From https://www.chrissailerkicking.com/p...le?player=4973

      Ranked #3 kicker
      Jonathan is a big time talent. He is big, tall, strong and athletic. He has perhaps the strongest leg in the nation in this class. Field goals are outstanding off the ground. Kickoffs are phenomenal. Hit an 80 yard, 4.20 kickoff (3/16). Dominated kickoffs at the 2016 Top Gun Camp (7/16). And could be a special punter with continued hard work. Jonathan has all the tools to absolutely dominate D1 football. A fine young man with incredible work ethic. The future is bright. Excellent prospect. OFFER NOW!!! Huge pick up for Maryland.
      Just cover, baby

        Jesus, that's terrible.

        I can't see a kid leaving a guaranteed starting spot in another school unless he was told in no uncertain terms that Yoon would not be returning next year.

            That's what it said my brother.

            Now I did spell Charlotte like a doofus. I have a lifelong problem of spelling it Charolette. Maybe my Indiana hooked on phonics, public school spelling <strike>through</strike> threw ya.

                          ISD posted a free article and they interviewed kicking guru Chris King. Here are a few quotes:

                          “I’ve known Jonathan since he was a freshman in high school, so I’ve seen him develop over the last four years,” Sailer told Irish Sports Daily. “We currently have him ranked number three in the nation and really, he’s as talented as anyone, so he could easily be ranked number one.
                          “He’s got 55, 60 yard-range. There’s no kick in a game that is out of his range. That’s one of his strengths, he’s got tremendous power and strength.”
                          “Kickoff-wise, he’s dominant,” Sailer said. “That would be his strength. He crushes kickoffs. He’d be the type of kid who could come in as a freshman and give you at least 70, 80 percent touchbacks without blinking. Kickoff-wise, he’s really strong.”

                            I thought this kid might get a PWO offer from the Irish. He's been linked to them for a while obviously becuz of Yoon's condition. If I'm him, I call Maryland and ask,

                                      I had tendonitis in my throwing shoulder for baseball. It went away during the off-season when I wasn't throwing as much. Lets hope Yoon can recover in a similar way

                                              **************************************************
                                              Notre Dame invested in its special teams this weekend by flipping kicker Jonathan Doerer from Maryland, meaning the Irish will have four true specialists on scholarship this fall.

                                              Brian Kelly got serious with Notre Dame’s special teams this off-season.
                                              First, the Irish head coach hired Brian Polian to rebuild those units after a disastrous season, making Notre Dame one of just a few Power 5 programs with a dedicated special teams coach. Now Kelly has gone a step further, investing in kicker Jonathan Doerer with a scholarship offer that flipped the product of Charlotte, N.C., from his original commitment to Maryland.

                                              Doerer visited Notre Dame this weekend, just days before National Signing Day. After returning home, he made the decision to go Irish. Doerer made the visit with both parents and his sister.
                                              “Hearing the numbers academically and the academic opportunities was part of it,” Doerer said. “Also being Catholic, raised that way my entire life. I felt I had to act in my best interests and the interests of my family.”
                                              Notre Dame started to show interest in Doerer last week and offered him over the phone before the visit, contingent on him meeting with Kelly and admissions while on campus. Once he checked both those boxes, the offer became official.
                                              The Irish staff expects Doerer to start earning that scholarship his fall on kickoffs, with rising junior Justin Yoon reportedly facing a medical layoff for at least part of this off-season.
                                              “I plan to come in and compete immediately,” Doerer said. “The plan is to come in on kickoffs immediately and they will give me the opportunity to battle on field goals and we’ll see how that goes.
                                              “I’d have to say kickoff is definitely my strong suit. A lot of people want to see that, and it becomes a play they don’t have to worry about as part of the field position battle.”
                                              The 6-foot-3, 188-pound athlete from South Mecklenburg had a 90-percent touchback percentage during his final three prep seasons. He also kicked 12 field goals of at least 40 yards.
                                              Notre Dame was one of just eight programs to allow multiple kickoff return touchdowns last season, giving those up in losses to Duke and USC. The Irish ranked 96th nationally in kickoff return defense and slightly better in raw kickoff yardage at 75th nationally (60.7 yards per attempt).
                                              Doerer committed to Maryland last summer and held just one other offer before Notre Dame came calling. Alabama and Clemson had also shown late interest.

                                              Flipping from Maryland was hard, even if picking Notre Dame was easy.
                                              “That was very difficult to go through that process.” Doerer said. “Obviously I have a tremendous amount of respect for that coaching staff over there and they’re doing a great job. I just felt I had to act in my own best interests.”

                                              Wonder if Polian had something to do with this late offer.

                                                I remember the kicker for Purdue a little while back was like 7'3. He had a cannon but not sure he was the most accurate, except for against ND.

                                                  Yes, he had been watching him for some time said one of the articles posted here. Which means they knew about Yoon's problem, developed a plan and executed. I fully expect BP to have the Irish ST's firing on all cylinders and operating as a well lubed machine.

I fully expect BP to have the Irish ST's firing on all cylinders and operating as a well lubed machine.
                                                      What OSU did to ND in the Fiesta bowl on STs was impressive. They dominated. They played like the knew they were going to dominate too. Would love to see ND take over games through field position like that.

                                                        So, this guy's is gonna handle kickoffs in order to save Yoon's leg for FG's, and this guy could also do FG's if Yoon doesn't get right, or if he gets burnt out during the year doing FG's.

                                                          The difference between ND and OSU is far greater than a kicker and a coach.

                                                            First: welcome to Notre Dame Jonathan.

                                                            Second: the article states that if he worked on his punt game he would be one of the tops in the nation. So this kid will be kickoff specialist from day 1, no more returnable kickoffs. As you mentioned excellent backup plan to Yoon and eventual predecessor. And a good option to be Newsome's backup as punter. Jonathan is a very valuable member of this class.

However, he was touted as having possibly the strongest leg in the nation and 90% touchbacks etc, etc. He was brought in primarily to do kickoffs and he's not been living up to his billing.

                                                                              This. Sounds like the staff thinks competition might help him. But at this point, I doubt he will ever end up with the FG job. Leonard looks pretty impressive.

There is zero excuse for not kicking it out of the endzone. I know initially, the coaches were hoping he would hit high short kicks inside the 5 but I think they’ve realized that the 7-10 yards that a return may be reduced isn’t worth the potential of a return to midfield or the endzone.

                                                                                Doerer was a preferred walk-on at Maryland. ND gambled & flipped him w/ a scholarship offer. I’d say the gamble has not paid off as of yet.
