        Notre Dame sophomore day recruiting buzz

        The 247Sports Crystal Ball is also all OSU for Cincinnati (Ohio) Walnut Hills defensive tackle Jowon Briggs but that may not be accurate. Notre Dame is very much a major contender to land Briggs who is an academic kid and strong personality fit in South Bend.

              What his tweet reminded me of...
              "Hey, I'll tell you what. You can get a good look at a butcher's *** by sticking your head up there. But, wouldn't you rather take his word for it?"

                Helmholdt with the Rivals version of a CB to ND.

                Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State have been the big three in Briggs’ recruitment since the early stages. The hometown Cincinnati Bearcats are now pushing their way into that top group and there are strong connections there. Briggs is a unique recruit, however, in part because he comes into the process not having grown up with any interest in college football. His personality strikes me as one that fits well in South Bend, and Notre Dame’s academic merits certainly help as well.

                Prediction: Notre Dame

                  Didn't make Scout's Top 125 which puts him no better than #8 and if you use their order of listing as a ranking he comes in as the #18 DT, #17 if you kick out Hunter Spears as he's an SDE. He's the last 4 star on the list.

                        I love it but with optimistic skepticism. Hope we can start off 2019 class on an awesome note, but we gotta win games before it all becomes a realistic reality. So much at stake this season! Just win, and they will come! Very encouraging! We just have to win! Go Irish!!!!!

                            I don't even think we have to make miracles happen. I think 9 wins and all losses we are right there, the talking heads will cover over and over how close we are to being elite and that last year was a one off. So much so that the pitch for recruits will be "You can finish the job" or some sort of corny mantra of the sort.

                              What Kool-aid? That ND might sign some really good players? Like they do every cycle. Per the 247 composite team rankings, I believe, we had the 6th most "stars" on our roster last year. Not sure why it has to be Kool-aid drinking to simply observe the truth.

                                I was more or less talking about how us as fans especially on this site will always say the 2016 class or the 2018 class will be the next 2013 class and will help us get over the top and then by June we are wondering what's going on and why our "guys we lead for" are leaning elsewhere.

                                I am also referring to not buying into the hype for this season yet till I see the results on field. I'll believe it when I see it and am not going to get over excited yet even though I'm somewhat optimistic

                                Where did I say we won't land good players? or believe we don't have "stars" on this roster which I do believe this roster is lacking in some star power. I like this roster but I don't know if it's good enough to compete for playoff spots or championships and the classes we are bringing in at are going to get us over that hump consistently. I've always said these classes lack true star power and guys that can step in and are ready to roll right away. We need to start landing those guys especially on the defensive side of the ball. Landing Derick Allen, Jayson and Phil is a good start. Need to close with guys like Simon, Oweh and pull some surprises.

                                Think you totally missed what I was referring too

                                  But nobody said that, so I'm not sure why it's relevant here?

                                      This is interesting. ISD posted something in Intel this week about ND and this gentleman not being as great a fit as they initially thought.

                                        I'll be interested to see what they meant by that. From what I've read from non-recrutnik sources, I'd think just the opposite.

                                          He goes to a very good high school. But Walnut Hills is a rough area. Maybe it has something to do with the neighborhood influences? That seems to happen a fair amount in college and professional sports

                                            2019 4-Star Jowon Briggs Is A Wanted Man In Recruiting Circles

                                            Even though he still has two seasons of high school football remaining at Cincinnati Walnut Hills, four-star defensive tackle Jowon Briggs has already hit the recruiting radar in a big way.

                                            Briggs holds offers from the likes of Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, and many others. He has already taken a few unofficial visits in an attempt to learn more about each school.

                                            "I have put recruiting on the back burner right now, because I'm more worried about my upcoming season right now," Briggs stated. "My most recent unofficial visit was to Alabama a few weeks ago. It seemed like a real, true, football school, and that's the vibe I got from there. It was obvious that football was really big to them."

                                            "I just feel like a place I would be comfortable the most is a place where there are people that think the same way I think about things," he added. "I feel like I'd like to get into other things besides football, and I'm going to college to emphasize education. I enjoy football, but I also enjoy getting an education and I want to enjoy college."

                                            "I definitely don't have any favorite school right now at all," he continued. "I'm wide open to hearing from every school."

                                            Briggs has also visited several Midwest powers, and he took the time to discuss his thoughts on each of those schools.

                                            NOTRE DAME: "They have a great 2018 recruiting class coming in, and I feel they're about to be something special again. The school is a place I'm comfortable at, but it different with all the cathedrals and places where you could sit down and pray. You don't get that anywhere else. I always like going to unique places, and checking them out, so Notre Dame is great to me."

                                            OHIO STATE: "When I went there on a visit, they didn't really do an academic presentation and I haven't really done much research on them yet. I have to go up there and collect more information on them."

                                            MICHIGAN: "They are a school that emphasizes academics, and they have an acting program that is similar to Cincinnati's conservatory of music. They're music program isn't shabby at all. The coaches are people I can relate to, so I like them a lot."

                                            MICHIGAN STATE: "Like with Ohio State, when I was at Michigan State I was only there for football, so I really need to get back up there and do more research on them as a program."

                                            CINCINNATI: "There is a buzz about UC right now, especially with their 2018 class. I've talked a couple times with (Bearcat defensive end commit) Malik Vann, and it seems that Luke Fickell is bringing an element of change to the program."

                                            With his season starting up soon, and Briggs being busy with his team on the weekends, there might not be too many game visits on his schedule in the next few months.

                                            "It will be tough for me to go anywhere this fall during my season," Briggs explained. "Whenever I can get free after my season, I will want to get out and see some college games."

                                                          If these CB's a remotely accurate, ND is going to say no to a .9200+ DT next cycle... or they could offer Rodas Johnson at CB and take em all

                                                              Though I agree that it could be really good even better top to bottom than 18'. The 2018 class is going to be the foundation. Phil J, Kevin Austin, Simon, Jayson A, Derrik Allen, Lamb, etc. are the future of Irish football. I don't see those guys getting beaten out by players coming in behind.

                                                              The way I think of it is, the combination of the two classes will be what ends up being special. That could set us up for a multi year run at the playoffs.

Combine last years TE/OL/RB with this years WR/QB/RB haul and you have the makings of something special. Also, there are some guys in that class that I was a lot higher on that most, like MTA. I think that class had some real underappreciated talent.

                                                                      However, and this is just my opinion, as underrated as the 17' class might turn out to be, I think the 18' class will be as well, and they are rated higher to start. I think that the players I named in my previous post are all true difference makers in time. Plus, we're not done yet with this class. If we can land some quality DB's and OL, it will be more balanced as well.

Losing two potential top 10 NFL picks will do that....and Mustipher will probably grade out as a first or second day pick.

                                                                              I think the oline is getting a wee bit overlooked....especially in light with wjht is currentky coming in.

                                                                                IF they lost Mustipher, their #2 OC - Ruhland returns. You are the only one afraid Mustipher leaves btw.

                                                                                You don't replace Q and McG with the freshman, you shuffle/replace them with Eichenberg, Kraemer Lugg, Haisnsey & Banks... the next guys in... not kids who will redshirt. Q and McG got replaced in '16 & '17. that's how recruiting is supposed to work.

                                                                                Who's over looking the O line? HH? or we worrisome fans? They had Luke Jones, Murray and NPF in town for USC. HH is doing his part.

                                                                                Maybe a mod can dump all of this in NPF's thread?

                                                                                              If it were me, and all parties were cool with a 4 DT class (8 DL overall), Id do so. DL recruiting can be spotty, so take them while you can. With that said, Im a little skeptical thats possible.

If we have young guys rotating in early and often, itll be that much easier to sell a 3- or 4- man DT class.
