Just watched his tape on 247. I hope this guy has a commitable offer.

PROS: Love how physical he is. Seemed to pull away from people in the open as well, something we need. Runs pretty hard. All good things.

CONS: Not very slippery and (I could be wrong) seems more of a hard 3-5 yard guy then a homerun hitter.

Based on the 4-5 back film/highlights I have watched in the last day or so, I would put him in my top 2-3, behind Alton McCaskill and T Cooley, and maybe even with Ervin (if we offer).

Haven't had a chance to watch yet, but this seems to contradictory.

Sorry, it does come across that way. Meant he pulls away from HS talent, but don't know if he will pull away from faster D1 guys
I will have to watch again

Again, I watched the film 1X and that was my initial thought. I play by big boy rules, so if I am wrong, I am wrong.

I like Diggs film better then McCaskill. But McCaskill has a better offer list.

Either would be great, one is more physical, one is faster and more "slick". We just like the opposite guy a little more.

He initiates contact which you love to see. Some highlights of his blitz pickup which is a BK Bonus.

He does break away, but I don't think he has that ELITE gear. That said, he just has a way of being not caught (Adams-ish). I think he would be a very good RB.

Is there some traction here that hasn't been posted recently? I've been off ISD for a few weeks and noticed a random guy extremely high on Diggs committing soon.

There seems to be solid traction here but it doesn’t sound like a decision without visits.

Huge Reggie Bush fan, lol.

They’re just identifying the wrong guys and spending too much time on them. Erik Olsen wanted to be in a TE class of 1. Unsure why it took so long to figure that out. Wasted time there. This kids idol is Reggie Bush. Said he’s the best display of a student athlete. You can’t make this shit up. But, I think these are things normally uncovered earlier and it’s bizarre we are getting deep into these recruitments and then finding this stuff out later.

It’s like opposing fans getting upset when Pat Coogan says he’s looking at all suitors and then commits to ND. They never had a shot.

You’re right, it’s bizarre. 33 wins in 3 years and we are scraping.

It's an organizational issue right now. It's really concerning IMO, because it's something that should have been obvious from the onset. Think of the dozens of time BK spouts off " I have been doing this for 30 years". Well, something as basic as recruiting prioritization and process flow (every program does it), shouldn't be an issue at this point in his career.

It very well could be certain guys on staff not pulling their weight. But as the HC, it falls on BK. I am just not convinced that they see the problem. Otherwise, I think they would have done something about it. They really miss Chip Long on the trail.

This Chip Long narrative is beyond ridiculous, IMO. The 2019 offensive skill class was terrible from a rankings perspective. Denson who was crushed by fans for his recruiting, had the best offensive skill player in RB Kyren Williams. There was only 1 player inside the top 500 and that was Kyren. Where was Long then?

And he gets credit for recruitments that he had little impact on.

Ok. Take him off the comment. But if that is what bothers you most about the discussion, that isn't a good sign.

Ha, I’m the one that started these comments with the bizarre nature of current recruiting. No need to put words in my mouth. That part is just frustrating because it’s lazy.

There clearly seems to be an organizational issue with the COVID recruiting. It’s on defense as well.

Do you think it's Polian? BK? Everyone? I see Taylor is busting his ass, but it seems shotgun like post Shipley. The OL approach has backfired a fair bit. The only place that I can say has rays of hope is Mickens.

If I had to comment on a singular name, I’d say Polian. Considering the same thing seems to be happening at a lot of positions, I think it’s a recruiting department issue. They don’t seem to be identifying the right targets or gathering the right information on these guys. Offering guys right before announcements. Seems disorganized. The Kelly blame should be that, as HC, he needs to see this problem and get to the bottom of it with Polian.

I think it's more the fact that RB recruiting was bungled this year in a big way. They didn't have a plan outside of WS.

100% agree with this statement. ND/Lance went all in on Will Shipley and we all know the end result with his recruitment.

What if the COVID was last year does Chris Tyree commit to ND? No I don't think he does.

Looking at the RB position it is a combination of Lance going all in on just 1 RB and the COVID.

The South Bend Tribune's headline in today's story about Diggs is that he is our top RB target now. If we don't get him, I say be done with the RB position for this class.

I don't think Polian is the issue here, let's not forget he helped get Manti here.

Chip Long could recruit but I think he got let go for internal issues, lets see what Tommy can do in a full year.
