From the 2021 Master thread



Gabriel Rubio visited for Pitt.

He & fellow visitor Tunmise Adeleye are two UR DT's that won't be for long. Both top of the board prospects that ND is on early. Oh how far they've come since 2015-2016 in regards to that. I really don't have much to b!tch about anymore.

His quotes from this article make it sound like he's an offer away from being our first 2021 commit.

His film is ridiculous. First highlight in his 2018 reel looks like he just swipes a blocker out of the way on handed. Think he could play Nose or 3 tech easily.

Thx Beau. Looks good and it's showing up on the front page too.

How about making the 2022 section now too? Each year there's more and more profiles to move because there's more and more info about these younger kids.

Any reason to believe that there's concerns in the classroom?

Not really. He reported a 3.4 GPA at the time I made the profile. In the story, he made these comments:

“I’ve been told that if I perform highly this school year, then I have an offer,” Rubio told Irish Sports Daily. “I’ve worked my tail off to earn it. I love everything that Notre Dame is and Notre Dame is a special place.”

Rubio is not only balancing school and recruiting this spring, but also track as he competes in the shot put.

“I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a challenge balancing recruiting visits, track practice, competitions and maintaining high grades,” stated Rubio. “This semester was a game changer for me. Everything came into focus and I became highly motivated to succeed.”

I took it as... Do this work, get to this level and the offer is yours. Maybe that was over thinking it? Good chance he's ok on the foreign language.

And they'll keep coming. It sound like he'd commit today if he could, but need to stay on top of him so this doesn't take a wrong turn.

Watched a few minutes of his tape. He uses his hands well but it'll be interesting to see how he develops his last two years of high school ball. He looks very awkward running; almost as if he hasn't quite grown into his body yet. But why should I have the slightest of concerns if he has offers from Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ohio State, UGA, and LSU?

If he commits to Notre Dame, tremendous kudos to Elston for getting an early, great start to the 2021 class. Elston deserves an unlimited amount of credit to the return of ND football.

247/Irish Illlustrated had a podcast talking about the most impressive players they've seen on the trail and one of them said Rubio is absolutely huge. Huge heads/hands/frame, just looks so much bigger than everyone around him. And they said he was impressive.

I would love to get him in the 21 class.

Does anyone know where Elston sees him playing: Nose or 3tech? I think he could play either very well but any word on that?
