    Allen Trieu with a CB to Michigan. At least I'm 99% sure it's for Michigan.

              We only need one more. Rodas Johnson, Mazi Smith, or Jowon Briggs. I don't care who it is. Just get one!

                If Josh Harris from NC wants in, I say good luck to Rodas, Mazi, and Jowon

                        I thought I read somewhere that the weight program of each university would be an important factor.

                          Found it
                          https://www.maizenbrew.com/michigan-...eekend-brewing

                          Smith was on campus last month for Michigan basketball’s last home game against Ohio State. There, he got the chance to see the new weight room and even meet new strength coach Ben Herbert.

                          This is a big factor to Smith, as he has strong opinions about strength and conditioning programs.

                              ND already has two DT’s committed, they had two sign with the last class, and three sign with the class before that.

                              Perhaps the staff thinks we’re good on DT’s right now? I’d imagine they would have pushed for one of the three guys they really liked after the Spears commitment if they felt a 3rd DT was necessary.

                                They are pushing for Rodas Johnson, Mazi Smith, and Jowon Briggs. The staff definitely wants 3 DT’s cause MDT is probably gone after this year along with Tillery and Bonner. At this point though, Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State (the other contenders for the 3 prospects above) can all sell the recruits on being their DT recruit numero uno and their guy which might entice them now that ND has two committed. Also there’s the fact that those 3 schools have really really good recruiting. That’s why we just need to be okay with hopefully landing one of them. My guess is one or more will visit this spring again and we should have an answer soon enough.

                                  As long as we get one of the three I am good but if we know we losing one we need to jump on plan b. Also why hasn't he heard of Matt balis? Didn't he see what happened last year? Also I hate losing to michigan.

                                        I'm sure Harris is a good ballplayer, but when a Top 10 DT from our own backyard wants to come to Notre Dame, I think we should close the damn deal, no matter how good Michigan's strength program (?) might be.

                                          Agreed. Although if we can pull Briggs or Rodas from Urban I'll be happy about that too.

                                            If the kid is picking his college based on a fancy weight room, good luck to him.

                                              in fairness he did say previously his favourite thing about ND was the food which he called "wet". I am surprized he is being swayed by the weight room bling.
                                              What did Davonte do?

                                                Did he really say that? Surprised he was an ND lean to begin with. I know Elston has been putting in work with him for a while.

                                                      Remember when we were going to land everybody? This is how it plays out every year.
                                                      60% of the time, it works every time.

                                                        We have two of our top of the board DT's already committed. One being a HUGE want from Clemson, that we out recruited for him. Not sure how we could possibly feel salty about not getting a 3rd.

                                                          I remember, I think it was 2 recruiting cycles ago, that ND was going to get a bunch of great recruits then all of a sudden they commit to Ohio State. I think it was 2 years ago because I think JK Dobbins was one of them.

                                                          Not that it was a guarantee that they would commit to ND but ND was feeling really good only to see them come off the board one after another.

                                                          ...that was fun.

I get to U of M from downtown GR in 2 hours and it takes about the same to get to ND. But scUM fans outnumber ND fans about 100-1 so I would still consider it scUM’s backyard.

Not to say he can’t be solid, but if you follow the history of GR football recruits in the past 20 years they’re pretty garbage lol. Yes there are a select few who have done very well, but in most cases they are insanely overrated or are ranked very low for a reason. I feel like GR products rarely ever pan out. I watched them play vs my hometown Rockford and I really didnt notice him making a huge differnece out there. This is vs some 240 pound OL as well. I’d love to see some local talent at ND, but I’d be willing to bet he busts. It’s the norm with this area in my opinion.

                                                                                                It does seem that way. However, last night with the Nana news, I was wondering if we'd even take Rodas Johnson at this point. With Cross now on board, he essentially fits the bill of swing DL that could play both SDE and 3T, so do we want another guy like that in Johnson. Ideally, I think we'd want to get a couple pure DE's. I'd rather see the staff go with a grouping of (3-4) Ojabo, DiCosmo, Nana, Ellison, Etinosa Rebuen, Isaac Townsend, MJ Anderson, Ty Robinson, etc.

                                                                                                Now, whether that is realistic or not, I can't say for certain. But, if we get Nana, this month, I'd be patient with that group first. JMO.
