"Irish Invasion is a huge event. What makes it different from any other university is the fact that it's a national event," said Scott Booker, Notre Dame's special teams coordinator/tight ends coach. "You have things like (Rivals.com) ... you have things like that, and then you really have a thing like our Irish Invasion. We pull kids from all four time zones. We have 20, 30 states represented."

Other elite college football programs have been holding similar events, such as Urban Meyer's "Friday Night Lights" event that he introduced at Florida and brought to Ohio State, and Michigan's "BBQ at the Big House," which started under Rich Rodriguez.

Notre Dame's staff uses the Irish Invasion as a tool to get dozens of top-flight high school football players to converge with the idea of showing them what the campus and school is really about and so coaches can evaluate those prospects.

Are you trying to say Notre Dame doesn't invite PWO guys or saying Notre Dame invites the top prospects in the country, which most of us that follow recruiting know already?

i don't know for 100% certainty however in everything i have read, the earlier camp dates are what those are intended to do in terms of offering a chance for top athletes to come but also having a much larger crowd of potential pwo guys...the invasion from what i have read is not for that purpose and is used much like friday night lights etc...to bring in the top tier guys but also guys they are very much interested in for an offer..not for pwo

On your list there, Ben Mathiasmeier is a preferred walk-on guy most likely, if that, with him being 5'9 safety/LB.

Last summer, Notre Dame hosted Chris Schilling and Simeon Gatling, as well as several local prospects to fill out the camp.

I agree, the main focus is to get the big fish on campus, but it's also a chance to see how kids they see in PWO roles look against top flight competition.

I would also argue that it's an opportunity to see guys in the 3-4 star range compete against each other. It allows the staff to prioritize certain players at specific positions. This event probably was the point where the staff prioritized Stepherson last year. Just my opinion though.

I would also agree with that. The Michael Young kid is the name to watch I think this year. His highlights are ridiculous, so he could be in the mold of Stepherson. It just allows them to see size them up physically and competition wise.

I get the feeling pretty quick the staff can tell who is going to rise to the level of competition during the camp with the talent they bring in each year.

I think people need to settle down on Stepherson until we see how much he actually plays and produces.
