    This kid is 30 minutes from my house. If there is legit interest on his end by the time the season starts I'll go have a look and report back.

      1st team Soph All American.

      49 rec....743 yds.....11TD's. More amazingly he had 113 tackles at DE.

      Had 2 older brothers that played at PSU. One is a walk on there now.

      I remember a snippet from one of the sites that said he had interest in ND. Would have to imagine he'll get a look. I'd strike while PA is Irish crazy, though he's from the Harrisburgh area, not WPA.

        I read on ISD or Scout (I think) that he was interested in ND. I couldn't find it when i looked.

          I am guessing his oldest brother was Christian who wanted to go to ND bad but we didn't offer and PSU did.

            That'd be he.

                Will he be willing to sit behind the two studs in the '17 class?

                  You mean next to them... on the bench behind Weishar and Jones?

                  This guy has a physical skill set different from the rest of the guys. 113 tackles really sticks out too.

                      Will be on campus next weekend. Currently the #1 TE in the class of '18 and #14 overall per 247.

                      Will the PA movement continue?

                        Highly rated player from PA. Also rated as the top tightend. Can't see anyway he doesn't attend ND now.

                          Well, both his brothers played at PSU, one's there now as a walk on (I think).

                          But I'll follow that with... is Dylan McCaffrey committed to Stanford?

                            Since Fasano got to the league 10 years ago, ND TE's have contracts totaling right at $100M. With Rudolph is in his prime, Eifert just coming into his and waiting on his big contract in a few years and Niklas ad Koyak just getting started these six (including John Carlson) could easily earn over $150M

                            I won't even try to calculate the $$$ Smythe, Weishar and Jones could/will make.

                            So in case you're reading Mr. Kuntz... Here's $100M more reasons to choose ND.

                                        Media makes it sound like he's gonna be a PSU lock. Was hoping he might swing through SB this week before/after he goes to FNL in Columbus. That's a big fat no.

                                            I don't think so or I'd have read that by now.

                                              This is hard to say and may sound a little negative but if I was this kid and was the #1 TE in the country standing 6"7.5, and wanting to make it to the NFL I'd be nervous about going to ND considering that they Have Alize, Wright and Kmet all ready. That hasn't seemed to stop top flight TE talent to come here in the past though. If he values education and going to school 4-5 years and wants to go to TE U then maybe he comes. We seem to do well in PA and maybe the idea of playing with Jurkovec sounds good! Let's hope so.

                                                You don't have to worry about AJ, '17 will be his last year. Call your bookie and get some of that action.

                                                The other two you bring up are valid points. I don't see Kuntz coming. Both his brothers played at PSU, one is still there. I've said the TE ND will get is Pat Freiermuth from MA but he better be the ND fan that I read he is otherwise coming in after Wright and Kmet is a tough choice. Maybe they need to take legacy, Anthony Torres from Mishawaka and take chill in '18? Then turn Sanford loose on Isaiah Foskey from De La Salle in NorCal who is the cream of the crop in '19 with a handful of P5 offers already.

                                                    I would be fine with a Kuntz or Torres approach. It's quite possible that Torres' recruitment picks up big time though. He's 6'6" with good hands and Penn isn't no joke. I would be totally fine with "settling" for a kid like him. Especially with our stacked TE depth chart.

                                                        You aren't the only one who would "settle". He's packing as we speak to head back down to OSU for FNL. That's his second UV this summer and FNL is invite only.

                                                        I hope ND offers him while Urban is speaking, then gets up and leaves. He would instantaneously be placed on my Rushmore with Montana, Rocket, Shark & Tommy Z status.

                                                                I honestly would like to get him an offer either way. If he would be willing to switch positions (DE, OLB) in the scenario he can't crack the two deep after a couple seasons, then lock up local athletes like him. He's a terrific character kid with excellent size and athleticism. He's the kind of depth guy you grab and feel comfortable that his floor is worth it.

                                                                    ND has had at least 3 other ranked TE's in the class on campus already including #2 Pat Freiermuth of MA and there's legacy Anthony Torres of IN who might blow up. He was just invited to OSU for FNL, his second visit there. He'll be getting a profile today along with the others.

I know I'm getting wayyy ahead of things and a lot would have to play out to make this happen but could you imagine a team with TE's of Alize Jones, Brock Wright, Cole Kmet and Zack Kuntz. That's ridiculous to even think about.

                                                                        Brock and Cole will obviously be here in 2018 and Alize would have to have a truly dominant year next year to go pro and Kuntz is still way up in the air to even commit but it's fun to dream.

Could have an impact in quite a few ways on Alize's future. But like I said...a lot would have to play out for this to happen anyway. It's just fun to think about.
