New vibe at ND...and the forecast looking like never before. Kudos to the coaches.

Big fan of this kid and his potential at tackle. Similar feeling when ND got Tosh but Elijah is more physically developed at this point.

HH doing what HH does.

I like ND's chances at having a 6 man OL class.

From Sampson on the II pod today, he said when ND went to see Paige he worked out for 3 straight hours outside in 95 degree Arizona heat. He also hears ND likes Paige and Jagusah more than Freeling which is quite surprising but what @BobbyMac has been saying since early in this thread that he is a stud.

Seems like times are starting to change for ND recruiting where our recruits aren’t losing rank. Especially with our track record on OL.

Big deal. There's no humidity.

As a second time poster, MSU fan here, that grew up in large catholic family and has a really big soft spot for the Irish… we really wanted this kid, our staff loved him. Great pick up, looking forward to what the FreemanEra brings.
Good to have you on here. Feel free to post more, we'd love your perspective on any active threads or you could just bump the MSU team thread (or make one, probably hasn't been active since we haven't played MSU in a while). We always appreciate outside perspectives.

Speak for yourself, I haven’t come across one Wolverine fan’s perspective that I’ve appreciated…

Welcome, Sparty—but just know the proper spelling of this is “FreeManera.”

ND prioritized him even when we had bigger names on the board, USC didn’t and lost the bigger names and circled back it seems.

I assume we missed a secret visit.

Not good, not the worst. Need some mojo back on the trail desperately.

Maybe this will lead to Ian Moore getting an offer. We've been told that 2024 OL numbers would be 3, but with Paige likely flipping they might push the number to 4 in 2024.

With Tanona done and Wagner looking like the weight issue is a multi-year one, I think they have to focus on getting someone in the ‘23 class first.

I gave the staff a lot of credit for this eval. Would be quite the bummer to lose this guy. I thought he had some of the best pass blocking film out there, still do.

That's probably not going to happen anytime soon unfortunately.

Didn’t we lose a commit to Clemson because we took this kids commitment??

Freeling i believe he is who you are talking abut. And he went to UGA.
If he got all buthurt over a rumor that the staff liked Paige just as much as him then I'm not sure he'd make it at ND. He'd probably transfer if he got beat out/didn't start right away.

What's the deal - he's taking visits again?
Loy posted a note this morning that for a variety of reasons he doesn’t expect him to stick with ND. And, instead head to USC. No reported visit/s at this time.
