Update on Notre Dame Recruiting

The recruiting class of 2013 is kind of in limbo until after January 7th.   Here is what we know.
If you haven’t been following the ups and downs, the class lost two verbal commitments.   RB Jamel James pulled back his verbal commitment.  He never made a visit to campus and rumor has it that he had admittance issues.  It probably didn’t help that Brian Kelly received a verbal from Rival 5-Star RB Greg Bryant.

LB verbal Danny Mattingly changed his mind as well.  Apparently Danny was still taking visits to other schools and looking at the current roster and recruits, did not see immediate playing time on the horizon.
So that puts the class at 20.  It appears that there is room for at least 3-4 more.  Folks in the know believe that Kelly has “soft verbals” from at least three.  Couple from USC.  Reasons for keeping quiet?  Some of these guys want to make a big splash, conduct a news conference or get their 30 seconds of fame by putting on a school baseball hat during the upcoming high school all-star games.

The return of seniors Zack Martin - OT and Chris Watts - G is great news and shrinks the scholarship total.  It is very nice that Louis Nix - NG is returning for his junior year, we will graduate next December.  I think we have Louis’ momma to thank for that.
One question mark is Cierre Wood - RB.  It is suspected his draft stock is not very high however he has a family to support.  It appears his best hope is undrafted free agent and hitching up with someone willing to take a chance.  His best bet is to return to Notre Dame, get a graduate degree and hope for a great year.

Two wild cards are line backers  Dan Fox and Carlo Calabrese.  Are they returning, does Kelly have room for at least one?
Six from the class of 2013 are enrolling in January.  This is always nice to see.  It is unknown how many of these early enrollees (EE) can be counted against last year’s class.  It is all fuzzy math to us, similar to the NFL team salary caps.

Alex Anzalone - OLB

James Onwualu - WR

Malik Zaire - QB

Steve Elmer - OT

Mike Heuerman - TE

Corey Robinson – WR

Everything is shaping up for a top five class and whether the soft verbal rumor is true.  You can check out the current 20 on the left side of the Blog.
