Strike up the band! Blue-chip wide receiver Lorenzo Styles jumped into Notre Dame's 2021 class, roughly 24 hours after top 60 wide receiver Deion Colzie did the same. Like Colzie, Styles lives in the home city of another college football blue-blood; Colzie in Athens, Styles in Columbus. Getting these guys is remarkable anyway, but even [...]

Are the Irish Recruiting Appreciably Better Than the Past?

A recent podcast featured a question and answer segment where it was asked if Notre Dame gets too caught up trying to fix a glaring weakness from the previous season only to let another area in the program become a new weakness in response. On the surface, this seems silly as most well run programs [...]

2020 Football Recruiting: WR Xavier Watts Commits to Notre Dame

Notre Dame picked up a key part of its 2020 offensive class today when receiver Xavier Watts pledged to the Irish. Rumor held for some time that the 6’1”, 185-pound Nebraskan was an Irish lean; some late buzz for the hometown Huskers surfaced but quickly dissipated. He showed early interest in Michigan too, who pursued [...]
