From the Master List thread:

Its official, Wiltfong just posted that the LB is indeed Nile Sykes. Coach Martin will be in to see him today. Wiltfong switched his CB to ND assuming we offer. If we don't he'll switch it back to Illini.

FWIW, Wiltfong said he like Sykes as a pass rushing LB in the 3-4. Went on to add that he's athletic enough to play all 4 LB spots and will be able to add the necessary weight to do so as well.

I'm not impressed with his offer list, but we need LB's, get him signed up. Being from Illinois we shouldn't have to worry about distance.

Wouldn't be surprised to see this kid on campus soon with a commit to follow. No inside info. Really like this kid.

Wiltfong just spoke with him and Steve is reporting that things could happen quickly if this kid gets an offer. Wiltfong is pretty sure he will be Irish if given the chance

Guessing that is what Anna is reporting too?

“@AnnaHScout: Could the Irish be picking up a commitment soon ($): http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=109&f=1052&t=12317040

That would be my guess. From Wiltfong: he's waiting to "connect" with Martin and then "there might be a story you want to read."

The ISD article said that they planned on talking again tonight. Martin need to clear something with Diaco and Kelly before offering?
