  • Mike Elko - Defensive Coordinator

    Welcome Coach Elko.

    Here's my open letter to the new DC.

    CME,

    Since Job #1 is finishing off the 2017 class and plugging some holes I've prepared a cheat sheet which will no doubt be copy/pasted by someone inside the Gug. No prob, you have my permission, this is my welcoming gift to you.

    Step #1. Double back on all of or Tier 1 offers and take their pulse. That's obvious.

    Step #2. Offer Colin Schooler OLB/SS from Mission Viejo (CA) HS. He was born to play your system. No one offered his brother until after NSD. He started at safety for Oregon as a true freshman. Colin is better. He's Drue Tranquil with Tier 1 wheels.

    Step #3. Start combing through the wanna-be ND program's (Duke, Vandy, NW, WF) commits:

    Wake Forest:

    - Bring DE Michael Allen with you. Who cares what the early feedback is. Kid deserves an ND education and to experience lake effect snow dammit.

    - Troy Simon 3star CB. He has an ND offer. Played way above R&R's at The Opening Regional.

    - DJ Taylor 3star OLB. Probably my favorite player on this entire list not named Drew Jordan Way under valued. Very similar to Antjuan Simmons (RB/OLB) only you got him to commit once already.

    - Avery Showell 3star S Played for undefeated GA state champs. Had 42 rec ... 762 yds ... 16 TD ... 1 Def TD in 13 G. Used as a rush OLB and SS. Actually a very impressive tape. Several passing plays where he runs away from everyone.

    Northwestern:

    - Earnest Brown - US Army AA DE. NW does not deserve him! Offer & Sign.

    - Trevor Kent - 3star DE. Same position as Brown. ND kicked his tires. Offer both, get at least one.

    - JR Pace 3star S from Georgia. Really a 4star. Too good for NW. If Fields doesn't work out.

    - Berkeley Holman - 3star WR. (Please give this to Coach Denbrock for me )If Calvin doesn't pop offer him. 1300 yd at St John Bosco. PLAYER. Maybe the best guy IE members have never heard of. Former teammate of DJ Morgan.

    Duke:

    - Drew Jordan 4star WDE. - OK, this is obviously the best guy on the list. Why is he going to Duke? Cuz no one loved him enough to make him see the light. ND never offered. PLEASE change that coach.

    - The Safety Triplets = Marquise Waters, Damani Neal, Lummie Young. They only need two. You recruited them all. I really like Waters. Neal is a player but vertically challenged.

    - Ben Frye 3star WDE. I know little about him besides WF recruited him and he's from Ohio. White boys from Ohio love ND, especially when OSU doesn't love them. It's like a rule or something. If you still like him, it's up to you.

    Vandy:

    - Dimitri Moore - 3star OLB. Avery Davis' under valued teammate at Cedar Hill. Deserves better than nasty, muggy, dirty, hillbilly-hollywood Nashville. Same class as Simmons and Taylor

    - Nico Bolden - 3star FS. Long athletic FS. Much like Isaiah Robertson. From Minnesota - not afraid of the occasional Arctic cold front.

    I'll send the the 2018 Hit List soon. You've got some catching up to do.

    Only update I can add is we have tried, a few times, to get in with Earnest Brown and he's just not interested.

      I still want Mike Allen the most of the DEs, just because of his size. I'd bet we'd get him if we went all in on him, but who knows if we will.

              If I lived close enough to Drew Jordan, he might have had a better Christmas. I actually know a guy associated with Schooler's program. He was one of my recruitnik group at Buffalo Wild Wings in OC. I GUARANTEE Schooler would jump on an ND offer.

              Bookmark this page: He will be in the NFL.

                We have spots to fill. I hope that Elko gets in and gets to work, with guys that he likes. This is a good list, solid contribution Crusader.

                DREW JORDAN, PLEASE!!!!!

                    I second this! I have been lucky enough to watch him play on TV and he is definitely worth an ND offer.

                        This is really great Crusader. Thanks a lot for taking the time. I thought I knew a lot about recruiting then I saw this.....I feel so small.....hahaha. Anyways, what do you think the chances that ND staff actually see this and for that matter do you think or know of staff actually reading IE for any reason ie checking out ND fan base to see their reactions and rumours floating around?

                                        Didn't know how good Elko was until I saw some highlights of his team. Pretty shocking to see what they were doing with a lot of lower quality recruits compared to us. I'm buying into the hype because we play like they were systematically and pile the offense..we can turn things around in drastically in two years.

                                            Totally whiffed on Avery Showell in my prospect-us.

                                            He's decommiting. He's a 3star S 6-2. 195 Played for undefeated GA state champs. Had 42 rec ... 762 yds ... 16 TD ... 1 Def TD in 13 G. Used as a rush OLB and SS. Actually a very impressive tape. Several passing plays where he runs away from everyone.

                                              - Troy Simon 3star CB. He has an ND offer. Played way above R&R's at The Opening Regional.

                                              - DJ Taylor 3star OLB. Probably my favorite player on this entire list not named Drew Jordan Way under valued. Very similar to Antjuan Simmons (RB/OLB) only you got him to commit once already.

                                              - Avery Showell 3star S Played for undefeated GA state champs. Had 42 rec ... 762 yds ... 16 TD ... 1 Def TD in 13 G. Used as a rush OLB and SS. Actually a very impressive tape. Several passing plays where he runs away from everyone.

                                              Northwestern:

                                              - Earnest Brown - US Army AA DE. NW does not deserve him! Offer & Sign.

                                              - Trevor Kent - 3star DE. Same position as Brown. ND kicked his tires. Offer both, get at least one.

                                              - JR Pace 3star S from Georgia. Really a 4star. Too good for NW. If Fields doesn't work out.

                                              - Berkeley Holman - 3star WR. (Please give this to Coach Denbrock for me )If Calvin doesn't pop offer him. 1300 yd at St John Bosco. PLAYER. Maybe the best guy IE members have never heard of. Former teammate of DJ Morgan.

                                              Duke:

                                              - Drew Jordan 4star WDE. - OK, this is obviously the best guy on the list. Why is he going to Duke? Cuz no one loved him enough to make him see the light. ND never offered. PLEASE change that coach.

                                              - The Safety Triplets = Marquise Waters, Damani Neal, Lummie Young. They only need two. You recruited them all. I really like Waters. Neal is a player but vertically challenged.

                                              - Ben Frye 3star WDE. I know little about him besides WF recruited him and he's from Ohio. White boys from Ohio love ND, especially when OSU doesn't love them. It's like a rule or something. If you still like him, it's up to you.

                                              Vandy:

                                              - Dimitri Moore - 3star OLB. Avery Davis' under valued teammate at Cedar Hill. Deserves better than nasty, muggy, dirty, hillbilly-hollywood Nashville. Same class as Simmons and Taylor

                                              - Nico Bolden - 3star FS. Long athletic FS. Much like Isaiah Robertson. From Minnesota - not afraid of the occasional Arctic cold front.

                                              I'll send the the 2018 Hit List soon. You've got some catching up to do.

                                                        He motions late alot to disguise coverage, and late line shifts.

                                                            I'm going to assume that since ND has made an official announcement, that he's going to be on ND staff and not coach for Wake. But I could be wrong. I can't find anything definitive.

                                                            *Good to have you back, Wooly. How's the baby?

                                                              I've read that he's coaching the game.

                                                                        CME,

                                                                        Step #1. Double back on all of or Tier 1 offers and take their pulse. That's obvious.

                                                                        Step #2. Offer Colin Schooler OLB/SS from Mission Viejo (CA) HS. He was born to play your system. No one offered his brother until after NSD. He started at safety for Oregon as a true freshman. Colin is better. He's Drue Tranquil with Tier 1 wheels.

                                                                        Step #3. Start combing through the wanna-be ND program's (Duke, Vandy, NW, WF) commits:

                                                                        Wake Forest:

                                                                        - Bring DE Michael Allen with you. Who cares what the early feedback is. Kid deserves an ND education and to experience lake effect snow dammit.

                                                                        - Troy Simon 3star CB. He has an ND offer. Played way above R&R's at The Opening Regional.

                                                                        - DJ Taylor 3star OLB. Probably my favorite player on this entire list not named Drew Jordan Way under valued. Very similar to Antjuan Simmons (RB/OLB) only you got him to commit once already.

                                                                        - Avery Showell 3star S Played for undefeated GA state champs. Had 42 rec ... 762 yds ... 16 TD ... 1 Def TD in 13 G. Used as a rush OLB and SS. Actually a very impressive tape. Several passing plays where he runs away from everyone.

                                                                        Northwestern:

                                                                        - Earnest Brown - US Army AA DE. NW does not deserve him! Offer & Sign.

                                                                        - Trevor Kent - 3star DE. Same position as Brown. ND kicked his tires. Offer both, get at least one.

                                                                        - JR Pace 3star S from Georgia. Really a 4star. Too good for NW. If Fields doesn't work out.

                                                                        - Berkeley Holman - 3star WR. (Please give this to Coach Denbrock for me )If Calvin doesn't pop offer him. 1300 yd at St John Bosco. PLAYER. Maybe the best guy IE members have never heard of. Former teammate of DJ Morgan.

                                                                        Duke:

                                                                        - Drew Jordan 4star WDE. - OK, this is obviously the best guy on the list. Why is he going to Duke? Cuz no one loved him enough to make him see the light. ND never offered. PLEASE change that coach.

                                                                        - The Safety Triplets = Marquise Waters, Damani Neal, Lummie Young. They only need two. You recruited them all. I really like Waters. Neal is a player but vertically challenged.

                                                                        - Ben Frye 3star WDE. I know little about him besides WF recruited him and he's from Ohio. White boys from Ohio love ND, especially when OSU doesn't love them. It's like a rule or something. If you still like him, it's up to you.

                                                                        Vandy:

                                                                        - Dimitri Moore - 3star OLB. Avery Davis' under valued teammate at Cedar Hill. Deserves better than nasty, muggy, dirty, hillbilly-hollywood Nashville. Same class as Simmons and Taylor

                                                                        - Nico Bolden - 3star FS. Long athletic FS. Much like Isaiah Robertson. From Minnesota - not afraid of the occasional Arctic cold front.

                                                                        I'll send the the 2018 Hit List soon. You've got some catching up to do.

I also love the hire, and don't think we could have done any better, but I hope his success at ND isn't yoked to Kelly's. I can't think of any other HC who came so close to getting fired yet still managed achieve the level of success we expect here.

                                                                            Comment
