    I really don't care until Koon gives an eval on his down field catching ability and route running separation.

    I want to see Claypool play the roll that Jones was supposed to play this year. I'd guess Claypool just needs to get caught up to speed on play book.

    Wow Claypool and Jones in 13 personnel. With Boykins and ESB outside next year!

    Maybe, but the same guy who coaches our TEs hasn't exactly lit it up on Special Teams or recruiting.

    Very true #1. I thought about editing that in after I posted.

    You can have the NFL's TE COTY and you'd get the same result.

    The other thing is it seems ND has gotten lucky and found 3 guys at the top of the rankings who are ND guys.

    I wonder how much of his thought process is "ND's TE U" vs. He's getting sucked into the PA-ND movement? He'd be the first non-WPa kid too and maybe they could make a run at Micah Parsons & Isheem Young along with Jahan Dotson who is prepping in NJ.

    I also think he could be successful at ND because he could be a non-traditional TE that would have a chance of getting significant targets. He's really a 6-7.5 receiver that could become a TE and a plus athlete when his size is considered.

    This would be very good news indeed.

    ...same folks who said Martin and ND had no interest apparently. He was just there on Monday when Freiermuth committed. I'll bet my skin we haven't heard the last of PSU on this one.

    But I hope I wrong!

    I would be inclined to agree with you with much more certainty if Alize wasn't suspended this year. 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.

    Would be a great add to the 18 class. Can't believe how smooth he looks running the hurdles. That's very athletic for someone of his frame.

    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.

    Since they missed on the last hurdler they targeted, this sure would be a nice consolation. I get the feeling he's gonna be ultra special.

    Don't get your hopes up. Serious legacy issue here. He is special though, actually a very good hurdler at 6-7.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

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.
