    I knew he was out officially when he / Pendleton / Abscher took a bunch of photo shoot photos together but Abscher only posted the ones with him and Pendleton

    Idiocy not to prioritize Freeling and is the exact thing that many were worried about with Hiestand and recruiting. He’s going to go after the good to really good players who are easy to recruit and not the great players who are harder to recruit.

    He's the best OL recruit on the board. ND will end with a good OL class but I'd take Freeling.

    Anybody ever think maybe Freeling isn't a lock even if they want him? I mean, it takes both sides.

    Absolutely. My comment was about Sampson claiming (spinning?) that Freeling was behind Paige and Jagusah on NDs big board.

    Prister had a big reaction when Pete said that, something like “Wait,what?!” That’s exactly how I reacted too.

    I enjoy that this group is about as connected to ND recruiting as a fan can possibly be and it’s free

    ND fucking up OL cruiting under Harry is pretty much the norm. We better get Jagusah or I’ll be seriously disappointed. Michigan is really confident they will get Jagusah (lolololol) but still
     
  15. AbeFroman

    AbeFroman You touch me, I yell RAT!

    I might be off here but I'm already happy with the OL class. Jagusah is a huge bonus.

  18. I view Paige, Freeling and Jagusah all pretty similarly at this point from their HS film, they don't need 6 OL.Don't think it is a big deal assuming they land Jagusah.

    I think Jags is going to be an outstanding guard when it’s all said and done, especially with the wrestling background on leverage.
    Absher and Paige seem to the the tackle candidates

    The norm? Harry tailed off in the end. Fucking up OL recruiting was most definitely NOT the norm. Hell, he's the one who went head to head with Urban for Eichnberg and Kraemer with no help from his own HC and won. On paper, HH had one down class and fans seem to spin it like he was a terrible recruiter. You don't produce those players if you can recruit.

    Also needs to be noted we got 4 top 200 OL last year plus a Craig- if we got Jagusah that’s 6 total in two years which seems ok

    Not to mention, OL tends to be the least accurate position at which to use rankings. Though Paige is now a composite four star, anyway and continues to rise. He is very athletic and had a great frame. I won't buy the higher than Freeling right now copium, but he has tremendous upside.
    Otting is simple. They need a guy who looks like a future center who plays with a mean streak like HH likes. There really aren't many of those as HSs don't tend to play their biggest and best OL at center.

    I also didn't understand the take by Tim and Pete that ND would be doing better in recruiting if not for the world of NIL. I feel like that although we won't keep up with the absurdity of the few up front collectives, past that we can clearly demonstrate that players can do quite well with NIL once here. I have to think that is easier for them to keep up with than the old bagman regime.

    Being aggressive with a pitch doesn’t necessarily mean the pitch includes guaranteed dollars. I think we’re doing one without the other.

    Yeah we have somehow stumbled into a universe where we are buying players in a more discrete and effective way than basically anyone. Nothing in my 38 years of being an ND fan makes me think such a thing should be possible but I’m pretty happy with it and I’m done asking questions.

    I’m not buying Walker getting NIL from ND. They were desperate (thanks Del) but offering a 3* WR a deal? FOH. My guess is ND made the 4/40 pitch and some dipshit thought it was some type of money offer.
