    So for '19 his biggest competition at the interior spot would be Zeke (Center prospect), and Quinn (if they have the luxury of playing him at Guard), and for '20 probably only Zinter? How's their interior OL board look, because he could definitely be playing in his 3rd year, unless ND starts pulling in some monster guards.
    Well they got who they wanted last cycle at all spots. Carroll and Kristofic at OTís. This certainly stinks as Skoronski would be the top inside option on my (irrelevant) board. Hopefully make a push for Atteberry and Monheim. Though I donít feel good about them. Zinter is probably most likely and Baker seems like itís a matter of time (very soon time).

      Right, and that's pretty much 3 Tackles (who are most desperately needed) and a few other Guards. Atteberry is OSU's to lose, right? I have no idea how interested Monheim is. But if Skoronski is as good as some claim (I gotta defer to Crus on talent evaluation), then losing him is pretty big, because I don't love the interior guys from last cycle, and am unsure that Sko would be anything other than the top Interior guy in this year's class. That's why I'm skeptical about depth chart being the answer, though it very well could be. Guaranteed 3 or 4 years or starting at NW, but it's not like at ND he'd be waiting for his 5th year like Ruhland.

        I don’t think it had to do with playing time. I’d assume relationships. NW had been on him for long time and consistently. Pretty sure there was a period of time where the interest from ND slowed and that probably impacted it to some degree.

          Even the kids who truly are about the academics still care about playing and showcase there abilities to the NFL. So what I think is happening is just like I said in my previous post. What they are seeing is the Luggs of thevworld who most likely would be quite highly thought of elsewhere where he would be playing for a good P5 school. At ND he's stuck behind such talent he might not see more than 1 year of significant PT.

              I figured somebody on this actually has legit insight on this situation given who it was.

                Ok Iíll bite.

                I have zero inside info. but by the looks of things he picked a school that he feels sets himself up for a quality, top notch education and a chance to be an immediate contributor on the football field. If the JJ McCarthy thread shows, itís not just the coaches that could give off vibes of wants and commitment. The kids can do the same and choose other schools. Happens. Respect their decision without assessing blame. Have to think with the strong haul last year that there is a plan on the part of the staff and they will fill spots as they see fit. Oh, and itís May 4th. Too early to toe the cliff.

                  I'm not freaking out about this. It appeared, based on Intel from the recruiting sites and people on this board, that he was an ND lock. What changed? Given his background I figured someone would know definitvely.

                      As of late we did, but we didnít throughout the entirety of his recruitment. And ultimately, I think thatís what won out. Familiarity and comfort with NWís staff.

                      Quinn has certainly taken a couple of big Lís here recently but I donít think panic mode is needed.

                        He was until he wasn't. Word out now is his recruitment was done in spurts. If true, that's unfortunate. ND should have a lead pack of 5-7 interior line guys and go after all of them until they fill up. There are no golden tickets at OG. But if you are slow playing or low playing a Catholic kid from Chicago with football royalty in his veins for kids from Colorado or Washington, that is flawed... until you land them, then it's a "genius move" like the Buchner/McCarthy scenario.

                        Is Quinn taking the L's? Quinn's probably the sales guy on the road while reading from a script that he, Kelly, Long & the entire recruiting staff have authored.

                        '20's a tough year for ND OL recruiting. Everyone not named Tosh Baker has to look at the depth chart and the '21 traction and ask, "where do I fit in?" I've loved Jimmy Christ from the get go but Jimmy Christ at ND had a very good shot at becoming Hunter Biven... everyone does.

                        I'm proud of Skoronski. He is who I thought he was. Smart & grounded. Chose a guaranteed path of life long success as well as a much better opportunity to get on the field early and work on his craft. Hopefully he develops into a guy who gets to the League.

                          Yes, Quinn is most certainly taking the L’s. I don’t think it’s a big deal but if he’s going to get credit for personally recruiting the 19’ class then he should get blame for what looks like misses on the top targets. Again, I don’t think it ultimately is a big deal but they really wanted those 2. Especially Christ.

                            This is sort of repetitive, but I can't (personally) be persuaded that being in the back of the OLine room (re: chances to get on the field) is anything but a big neg-recruiting sledgehammer that any other school would use against us.

                            We have five monsters that we roll out there who all could play this year and next. Behind them there are three guys who have been around the team (Lugg, Gibbons, Dirkson) who Quinn played in the middle of the meathouse in the Spring game, and who did pretty well. Added to that are Correll, Kristofic, Carroll, and Olmstead, who as a group some consider the solidest haul yet --- two of whom were the second team Spring tackles.

                            That's TWELVE guys who would be veterans well schooled in ND OLine play. What opposing recruiter wouldn't use THAT vs us? It would take an awfully confident and/or patient player to want to come in and face that.

                            Admittedly, in ancient times (my day and earlier) there were lots of players who were willing to sit just to be the re-load guys for NOTRE DAME and the NFL pipeline that we were. I don't think that quite exists now. (though we may be reestablishing it.) Edit: by the way, back in those old "glory" days, the tendency was to have an "up" recruiting OLine class followed by a relatively thin one, then another "up" etc etc. Leahy didn't have to bother with that but the others did.

                            I'll give Quinn et al all the "pass" they need (and it's not obvious yet that there's any griping to be had anyway) if we're not the assembly-of-monsters this year that we're beginning to take for granted.

                              Championship teams stack talent on top of talent. I agree it is one of the most difficult things to do in recruiting but the top top teams bring in super talented dudes and follow that up with more talent. Clemson has like 10 4-5* receivers and they just reeled in two 5 star receivers this past cycle. They also convinced the top QB in the class to sit behind a Junior Trevor Lawrence instead of walking into a starting job at pretty much every other school in America

                              .9545 4* Hunter Bivin
                              .9467 4* Steve Elmer
                              .9330 4* John Montelus
                              .9280 4* Mike McGlinchey
                              .9209 4* Colin McGovern

                              .9707 5* Quenton Nelson
                              .9484 4* Alex Bars
                              .9123 4* Sam Mustipher
                              .8926 4* Jimmy Byrne

                              This is just an example from a ratings perspective as to what back to back epic classes can look like. 2019 was Part I of that trend and now stacking up back to back classes ensures talent, depth and competition. Getting some big time dudes on board is a must for ND this cycle and almost every cycle after that.

                                To be fair, that's probably an easy sell... hey, come sit behind Trevor for a year. You'll get to play in almost every game, because we're gonna blow everyone out, then the job is yours full-time for two years.

                                  I think that QBs think differently than OLine, and WRs surely do.

                                    Okay not the greatest one but there are countless other examples. Bama has 14 composite 4-5*ís at DB this upcoming season. They also have 14 4-5*ís at LBer (they play a 3-4). Thatís definitely stacking talent. Bama convinced Ishmael Sophser, Antonio Alfano, Justin Eboigbe, DJ Dale, Byron Young and Braylen Ingraham to play defensive line in a 3-4 defense. Thatís 6 freshman for a 3 position group! My general point is I donít feel bad for Jeff Quinn having too much talent at ND but rather I expect him to be a dynamite recruiter and close the deal with some of these top kids.

                                      ... really hard to compare Bama to anybody as to the recruiting game --- so many of those studs leave early [for more than one reason] that the sit-and-wait thing is easy to reject [whether wishful thinking or not.] The skill position kids and defense for sure know that, plus no one else can offer a near sure title sometime.

                                      I'm still giving our staff full marks for effort to a plan --- which is all I can ask.

                                          We have no idea the entire list of schools that offered him. He didn't announce them.

                                                      Bad year to be short on inside #'s. Elsewhere, I saw ND fans say, "The fact he went to NW and not OSU or Mich proves why he's not a take for ND."

                                                      No, it just proves how much of an education first, RKG he is.

                                                      I'm glad he's there. I can't help but pull for the Kitties. Saw a lot of their games from 1994-2000. I just have to filter out the periodic Fitz hate but that's ND's fault as much as his.

                                                                    I'm sorry, I like Skoronski and think he's a good player, but he is not even close to touching top 30 level.

                                                                    247's quality of content continues to deteriorate by the year.

                                                                          ND made after season pushes for Skoronski and Monheim.

                                                                          1. Too little, too late. Could have had both.

                                                                          2. Would they've taken both? If so, that opens up some future discussions about the portal.

                                                                          3. Were they offered as OG's only?

                                                                          4. SC is starting Monheim outside. I have no idea where NW is starting Skoronski but I'd imagine he could be their version of Hainsey at ND being a 6-4 starting OT as a freshman.

                                                                          5. Wanting to start as a Fr. or a Soph and knowing you will is a good reason to go to another school. That's why the NFL is full of former B1G OL's who were 85ish 3*'s coming out of HS. They go somewhere, become early starters and develop into professionals.
                                                                          Snaps > Stars

                                                                          6. My two favorite OG's were Quinn's. Rees Sr still has me on speed dial.

                                                                                Would love to know why Quinn called off the dogs, seemed content with the two OT's and then went gonzo after Pete S and Monheim in the 11th hour, circle back?

                                                                                Just feels like they found out late that they needed more butts in the OL room for next season or BK took away his spots for other positions only to give them back when it was too late. The one thing I have a hard thing accepting is Quinn dropped the ball all on his own.

                                                                                I really believe if they had 4 spots open from start to finish, Quinn would have landed Baker, Carmody (in Christ's place), Skoronski and Monheim (IF he didn't take Zinter or Atteberry first) I think it's obvious at the end of the cycle, he liked Monheim more than those two but at one point he was more involved with Zinter / Atteberry.

                                                                                Oh what could have been.
