18 Notre Dame Does Not Have To Fret Over

Ran across an enlightening article in USA Today (1-19-12), read it Here.

65 underclassmen having college football eligibility left have declared themselves for the 2012 NFL draft.  This is the most in ten years.  The draft starts on April 26th and it appears that Notre Dame will have at least four contenders based upon their selection for post-season all-star games.
Robert Blanton

Gary Grey
Trevor Robinson

Harrison Smith

Michael Floyd (   Has Declined To Particiape In Post Season Actitives   )
I would guess that if any of the four are not drafted, they will at least get some free agency tryouts.

Anyway, out of those 65 underclassmen, 18 come from eight different schools the Irish will play in 2012.  This can only be a very good thing.
Miami (FL)      6

Stanford           3
USC                 2

MSU                2
BC                   2

Purdue             1
OK                   1

Wake Forest     1
I won’t bore you will repeating the names, the complete list is in the USA Today article.

The interesting point is the apparent abandoning ship down in Cane Country.  Between the transfers that have taken place and now underclassmen departing the handwriting on the wall must be obvious even to those guys.  I wonder what kind of a recruiting class is coming in this year for the Canes?
