You're correct on Johnson he was the #2 DE with a Rivals 6.0 Rating.

Nix is #7 DT with 5.9 Rating.

Cwynar was #12 DT with 5.9 Rating

Nix does matter, as does taking two more DT recruits (Nix counting as one of them.). Weis didnt get the dlineman early, last year only signed one. we need to take at least 4 pure defensive lineman in this class IMO. Nix saying "he cant explain ND" is a good thing. ND is impossible to put into words.

ND doesn't need them to be better necessarily (although it would be nice). What they do need is for them to be comparable and to provide depth on the line, which has been a problem for a while.

IrishAddiction 11-03-2009 06:37 PM

Specific reasons we need nix and another DT. We currently have none on board for 2010. Found a neat article from ISD talking about our DL recruiting vs. the other elite programs. Link below.

Is he saying ND isn't recruiting him as hard? Or maybe their offer isn't available anymore? Weird.

It read more like he couldnt put into words how he feels about ND. The satff is recruiting Nix very hard and they feel very good about him from what i have read. It appears that Miami is not recruiting him anymore. He has not talked to them since the USC game.

BGIF 11-04-2009 03:33 AM

So summarizing the past 20 or so posts, Miami (there's more than one UM folks) isn't recruiting him anymore but he's going to sign with them and he can't put into words what he thinks about ND although he visited twice on his own dime.

???

jason can you summarize his status in a single post using more than sentence to do so.

jason_h537 11-04-2009 03:37 AM

LOL. I say he ends up at Notre Dame. Is that enough of a summary?

I like it a lot better than the 20 preceeding messages.

Brown 11-04-2009 04:54 AM

I think Nix is more of a true Nose Tackle (which we need, and bad) than Cwynar is.

Cwynar is more of a run stopping/pass rushing hybrid body type. Nix is a big ox you throw in the middle of a defensive line, to gobble up blockers.

I think Nix is at the very top of Tenuta's big board.

texas fighting irish 11-04-2009 01:39 PM

Hope Nix does sign with us.

WabashFalcon 11-04-2009 06:44 PM

A true Nose plays only in a 3-4 scheme. Instead, we have two DTs... of which Nix would be fantastic.

mgriff 11-04-2009 08:12 PM

For what it's worth, Haubert thinks ND still has a very good shot with Nix. Very last question is about Nix. Chat: Scouts Inc.'s football recruiting chat - SportsNation - ESPN

jason_h537 11-05-2009 12:08 AM

A commitment is not binding. You have to recruit kids the whole year through. Committed players should be in constant contact with recruiters. The fact that Nix has not been in contact with Maimi in 2 weeks shows how Miami feels about his committment

Who else is recruiting Nix that we need to be worried about?

Brown 11-05-2009 08:46 AM

A true nose can play in 4-3 as well -- they're golden in running downs and goaline packages.

Anyway, I read a fantastic article over at ISD about Nix. Seems like the kid has come a very long way.

He quit his football team several times his Fr. year ... and was just an overweight 15 year old who the coaching staff turned into one of the most sought after recruits in the country 4 yrs later. He also had grade issues, but those drastically improved his senior year.

This sounds like a special kid -- but a kid that wouldn't surprise anybody if he commits and decommits several times to multiple schools. This one is going to go down to the wire. Also, the coaching staff is going to earn their paychecks keeping this kid on the up and up, imo.

iMANTIusc 11-05-2009 03:57 PM

New ESPN article on Nix. Talks about he grew up in bad area but coaches and football turned him around. This is what he said about Notre Dame:

Quote:

Growing up, Notre Dame was something I didn't know too much about. It was all about the Floridas and the Miamis and Florida States. My mentor told me I needed to go ask somebody, ask my counselor, who is Notre Dame, just tell them you got offered by Notre Dame and look at their reactions. I talked to a lot of people and said I got offered by this school and that school and this school, and I brought up Notre Dame and their expressions just changed like wow, you got offered by Notre Dame. That's when I came to find out it had to be something special."

Nix got to see for himself in late June, camping at Notre Dame for three days. He took an official visit to the Irish campus in September for the Michigan State game, and returned again in October for the USC game.

"I know now that I can fit in at Notre Dame."

Says that he still doesnt know where he will go and make a decision shortly after the season ends, and when he makes the next decision it will be final.

irishandy 11-05-2009 10:05 PM

I can see him choosing Irish.

texas fighting irish 11-09-2009 03:44 PM

I am praying he does pick ND we truely need some run stoppers.

irish73102 12-01-2009 10:45 PM

COMMITED
 
steve whilflong from isd is on the phone with him right now HE HAS COMMITED TO NOTRE DAME BOYS N GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!

NDinL.A. 12-01-2009 10:46 PM

Nix just committed to ND, per ISD's Steve Wiltfong!!!!

Wow, finally some good news. Back to having 18 commits LOL...

irish73102 12-01-2009 10:49 PM

THANK YOU LOUIS NIX

OCIrish 12-01-2009 10:49 PM

Not sure how this happened, but it's at least some good news for a change. Now if we could just get a HC to commit to the Irish, we'd be in business.

DirtySecret 12-01-2009 10:51 PM

Welcome aboard Nix.. Thank you for considering us for so long.. Glad to watch you in blue and gold for years to come..

Polish Leppy 22 12-01-2009 10:51 PM

WOW. great news.

completely out of left field. last thing I'd expect to happen this week.

beautiful.

HereComeTheIrish 12-01-2009 10:52 PM

Hell yes!!!! Thank you Mr. Nix!!!

Tate the Great 12-01-2009 10:59 PM

I feel like Louis must know something that we don't. The timing of this is just plain out weird. I think he must know who the next head coach will be...IMO a great hire is coming soon. Thanks for being the indicator species, Louis Nix.

Tate the Great 12-01-2009 11:00 PM

Welcome aboard, Louis!!!! :)

bert2834 12-01-2009 11:00 PM

WOW, just WOW.

Not much else to say!

Welcome aboard! Hope other recruits follow suit!

NDinMemphis 12-01-2009 11:02 PM

Awesome news!!!! Welcome Louis!

NoJusticeNoPeace 12-01-2009 11:07 PM

Talk about surprising!

fitz_bu47 12-01-2009 11:08 PM

We really needed this, thank you and welcome Louis!!

jakerbluegold 12-01-2009 11:11 PM

FANTASTIC NEWS! Thanks for choosing the Irish Louis, and good luck!

Completely agree. Nobody outside a guy who had very limited options would commit to a D1 school without knowing who the coach was going to be. We'll all have that information very soon IMHO.

WabashFalcon 12-01-2009 11:14 PM

Wait... what the hell just happened?


Christmas? Early?

jakerbluegold 12-01-2009 11:15 PM

I certainly hope so. We don't want to be reading mindless rumors for the next few weeks, only to be disappointed.....again.


IT HAS TO BE STOOPS!

jakerbluegold 12-01-2009 11:19 PM

Why does Rivals have him committed to Miami on 12/1/2009?

Irishlew 12-01-2009 11:32 PM

Come on back Mr. Martin...Nix is the DT we've been missing for years.

NoJusticeNoPeace 12-01-2009 11:32 PM

IT'S RANDY SHANNON!

BGIF 12-01-2009 11:33 PM

hallelujah chorus Notre Dame - Google Videos

Irishlew 12-01-2009 11:34 PM

He's been a silent commit since the USC game.

NDinL.A. 12-01-2009 11:45 PM

Great interview, just said he's 100% committed, no more visits. He called the coaches from LSU and FL and told them the news today (props to him for manning up); nice to pick up a kid from the south over Liar and Miles. Said he wanted to commit for weeks, even months, but finally pulled the trigger after talking with coach Alford today.

This is refreshing news in a tough time for Irish fans!

(And props, once again, to CW and the staff for selling the school, not the staff)...

Junkhead 12-01-2009 11:47 PM

Wow. It's probably been said, but the fact that he committed now makes me pretty certain that he was told who the next coach will be. That is even more amazing than Floyd committing right after we got destroyed by U$C.

One reason I would like to see Tony Alford stay. He can recruit!!

NDisme 12-01-2009 11:57 PM

I thought the same thing, very intesting

is it more amazing then Te'o committing after we got beat by 'Cuse in a foot of snow?

texas fighting irish 12-02-2009 12:25 AM

Wow was having a bad week with Martin gone and no coach but Nix picking Notre Dame makes it all better.

ACamp1900 12-02-2009 12:26 AM

This is shocking!!

IrishFanForLife 12-02-2009 12:29 AM

Wow this is great news during a tough week. thanks to charlie and staff for selling the school. The timing of this is weird though. Do you think he knows something, or am i looking to much into this and maybe he just wanted to go to nd really badly?

vernfootball1 12-02-2009 12:32 AM

this sorta made it sound like he just wanted to go to nd really badly Notre Dame Football - No Coach, No Worries, Nix Commits

IrishInFl 12-02-2009 12:33 AM

Wow! We really needed interior line help. Lost a big one today, but got a great player in a position we needed. Welcome to Notre Dame Louis! Go Irish!
