The Fighting Irish Lose Two Freshmen From The Secondary

Chris Badger                                  Spencer Boyd

Which is worse? Losing two freshmen who have never played a down but who you have been recruited for the future OR losing two seasoned players looking to start elsewhere?

Coach Brian Kelly will contemplate the latter. He will have at least one more and possibly two slots in his next recruiting class.

Safety Chris Badger is going on a two-year Mormon Mission and only time will tell if he returns to Notre Dame.

Corner back Spencer Boyd is leaving Notre Dame to be closer to his two year old son in Florida and will play for Skip Holtz at USF in 2011.

Interesting that both Badger and Boyd were early enrollees this past January. SAS is going to appoint someone from the staff to research how the early football enrollment has been working at Notre Dame. 

Charlie Weis was able to convince the administration to go along with what just about every other football program in the country had been doing for years.  Attrition, success on the field and graduation will all be taken into account. This is something that the NCAA should be doing instead of wasting three plus years with the obvious Bush scandal at U$C.  It may be that early enrollment should be added to the recent ban on early high school juniors verbally committing before 1 July of their senior year.
