Notre Dame Recruiting Wars


Some folks get more excited about the Notre Dame recruiting wars than others. Take Cyndi for example. She is our recruiting specialist here at the Station and is the only one who seems to care. Sure the Fighting Irish Football news is downright slow just now. After all we are in the DEAD ZONE and will just have to grin and bear it.

The current six verbal commitments can be found along with their mug shots on the right side of the Blog.

The rest of us here do not care to jump out of basement windows every time a prized five-star recruit decides to take his talents elsewhere. Take Noor Davis for example. He is a 6'4", 225 pound LB from The Villages, Florida, had a top five of Notre Dame, Florida, USC, Alabama and Stanford. He took his time, studied his finalists and made his decision.

Davis will be heading to the Pac-12, as he will be attending Stanford, which came as a bit of an upset to some observers. But what the heck?

It seems every day a recruit somewhere commits to “College A” and he lists Notre Dame as one of those schools that made him an offer. How can this be?

It appears that Coach Brian Kelly has approximately 130 offers on the table out there in recruit land. Notre Dame management of the procress appears to be an art form and exact protocols and philosophies are a closely guarded recruitment secret. We did offer an explanation here.

Anyway, Cyndi wanted to let you know that Keith Marshall a #1 running back will be visiting Notre Dame shortly. He’s 5’ 11” and 190 lbs. and the best running back out of the class of 2012 out of Millbrook High School in Raleigh NC.

If he ends up committing to Notre Dame, we don’t know what Cyndi will do. We are hoping for a free round at our favorite watering hole from her though.
