    the proliferation of recruiting "reporters" is pretty wild, there's probably 12 guys doing it for ND alone all just regurgitating the same information

    I feel bad for the kids who are probably being hounded by these dudes

    Seems like every site has at least two recruiting "reporters" that are solely focused on monitoring social media. These people are usually transitioned from the most active poster role into an employee. So they're obviously the most qualified.

    The Ohio State beat is similar. There’s like 35 mostly gross, obese reporters that get all of their information from Birm and Pelican and then just spin it to fit whatever narrative they’ve created.

    All things considered I think Bama has done pretty well with its recruiting guys since the Rivals/Scout days. We've only had a few guys and they don't really sunshine pump. Watts and Andrew Bone have been pretty solid. Hammerin Hank South hasn't been the best but he seems like a pretty nice dude and isn't weird and fanboyish

    In that reporter’s defense, NDs own recruiting beat writers are also in the midst of predicting about six more 5 star commitments in short order

    Difference being those are legit

    Friends of Notre Dame Collective is a game changer for Freeman, poor Kelly he thought he had to go to the SEC to get bagmen finally

    I always figured that Rees' #1 resume point should be that he's from Lake Forest and went to ND undergrad meaning he should have a network of bankers, PE, and lawyers begging for access in exchange for bags. Apparently Kelly was too stupid to realize what he had there.

    Jordan hall to FSU
    Cormani McLain to Bama
    Leblanc to Ohio state
    Harris to UGA
    Tony Mitchell to Bama

    This is clearly an act of war against king Cole

    his best friends are both coming to ND for football/baseball, he’s scheduled to be on campus 2+ times in next two months

    ND will match or exceed your NIL deal

    If he’s committed after March still we hold him

    Bama is still Bama so anything can happen but it seems we picked the right time to hire a young coach, NIL shouldn’t be a problem for ND, and it sounds like it won’t be.

    ND is doing all the same shit everyone else is now in 2022, Freeman is pushing incredibly hard behind the scenes to make sure we won't lose a cruit over NIL

    ND has a collective just like everyone else ours is just way quieter than Rick Rickart giving out lifted fucking trucks and Trump Daddy Schott
