No, ND LB Brian Smith commenting on recruits would be an NCAA recruiting violation.

This Brian Smith has been doing ND football recruiting since around 1996. I spent an evening at the Backer with him and Mike Frank before the '97 Blue and Gold game discussing ND recruiting. I was doing recruiting for the Irish Recruiting Journal (free internet board) back then while "smitty" had recently joined Mike's fledgling recruiting service. Back then Mike lived in Nebraska, worked for a mortgage lender (IIRC), and was doing the recruiting service work as a second job. Shortly after that B&G game smitty moved to South Bend to give them a local presence. Since then I believe smitty has been associated with a couple of recruiting services and has done free lance work writing recruiting articles for a number of recruiting services including Blue and Gold.

I've found him in the past to be knowledgeable. If he knows, he says so and when he doesn't he make up news or play the Lemming games.

I'm ready for this guy to commit, think he will be a great addition. We could use his size inside. The one thing I noticed comparing us to USC was there size up front compared to ours. Our Specialty players especially on offense compare to anyones in the country and might be the best, but we need some speed on defense and some size up front. Harrison Smith in the secondary is killing me by the way.

If we get Nix, I don't think we can complain about other schools "poaching" players that had previously committed to another school. In the last five years, we'll have WAY more players flip TO us as opposed to AWAY from ND.

Can't complain now as it is...

this guy would be a huge get, we need a monster inside that can draw double teams and stuff runs, this would do wonders for our defense.
