Football Banquet Recruiting Visitors

With 18 commitments already in the 2018 class, the list of football banquet recruiting visitors this year is centered more on camaraderie than progress. Even so, there are of course some uncommitted visitors in town who are key targets; unsurprisingly, they're all at positions of need in this class. The Irish staff will attempt to [...]

Recruiting Visitors for USC Weekend

Stop me if you've heard this one: The USC game is days away. The Irish are favored and it's a huge recruiting weekend. Woohoo! Just like 2011, right? Well, while there will be many recruiting visitors for USC weekend, just like 2011, but there's plenty of reason to believe that 2017 Notre Dame is in [...]

2018 Notre Dame Football Big Board Catchup

It's been a while since we've updated the 2018 Notre Dame football big board, largely because not a whole lot was happening. A few guys here and there committed to this school or visited that one, but that was it. Now that the season has started and everyone's boards are a bit tighter and official [...]

Recruiting Visitors for Georgia Weekend

As you might expect, we have a very impressive list of recruiting visitors for Georgia. Normally I would say it's impossible to imagine a recruiting weekend that's a bigger deal than a USC game, but in this case I think there's a discussion. Georgia will play Notre Dame for just the second time ever, and [...]

Projecting 2018 Recruiting Needs

The 2017 football opener against Temple inches ever closer, which of course means it's a perfect time for projecting 2018 recruiting needs for the remainder of this cycle. Right? That's how I read it, anyway... With the recent pledges of George Takacs, Jahmir Smith, Shayne Simon, and Jack Lamb, the 2018 class stands at 15 [...]

2018 Recruiting: LB Jack Lamb Commits to Notre Dame

Linebacker Jack Lamb became the 15th Notre Dame commit of the 2018 cycle when he announced for the Irish today. Conventional wisdom held UCLA would win out for the 6'4", 215-pound Californian due to concerns about distance; despite even further distance, many feared Penn State's pull on the double Nittany Lion legacy. However, Notre Dame [...]

2018 Recruiting: RB Jahmir Smith Commits to Notre Dame
