    he has a legit case to be #1 in the country overall but it really is splitting hairs between the top guys (i'm not counting Arch in that top group)

    Arch is like the 3rd or 4th best QB in the class. Really, really good, but it’s clearly the last name that has him #1 overall.

    Think Dante and Malachi are likely the real top two QBs, in whatever order.

    Prister on Laurinitis...seems like he was a huge pickup as a GA this offseason. He's going to be a very good LB coach down the road

    • When I think of…what Irish Illustrated has been told about defensive graduate assistant James Laurinaitis and his involvement in coaching the linebackers, coordinator Al Golden has placed considerable trust in the former Ohio State All-American.



    Freeman confirmed what Irish Illustrated has heard regarding Golden’s desire to spend more time overseeing the entire defense while collaborating with Laurinaitis in coaching the linebackers.



    “Laurinaitis is running a lot of meetings and is really helping out with those linebackers so Golden can pull back and do things as a coordinator,” Freeman said. “James is unbelievable. Unbelievable.”



    Freeman said that was the plan with Laurinaitis when discussions about him joining the Notre Dame staff were initiated.



    Irish Illustrated has requested an interview with Laurinaitis, which is expected to be granted later in July.

    Oh for sure - but coming from the 247 guys jumping Arch is a big deal because that'd make him #1 overall

    this 100%

    Dante and Malachi are top 3-5 overall players in the class

    Arch is a top 50 or so player

    Nico does have the highest ceiling in the class IMO but by far the biggest bust potential of the top QBs

    this guy on 247 has been absolutely adamant that Dante will land at ND in the end (he's been saying this for weeks now)...I believe he said his kids know Dante or something along those lines but I don't remember anymore

    fantastic post to sum up why Mich sux at recruiting

    The Michigan faithful (drinking the coolaid, as all fanbases do) are blaming this on NIL and losing the prospects for pay to play

    They’re totally missing the point. It’s fascinating.

    - Michigan lost both coordinators (including their best in-person recruiter, Gattis) and ace Shaun Nua.

    - Their Recruiting Director then took a defensive analyst role at Ole Miss & their Director of Player Personnel made a lateral move to Washington

    - Harbaugh rearranged [what was left] of the staff and shifted almost every remaining coach into a new role, as he scrambled to assemble a staff and fill gaps (way behind schedule)

    - their recruiting board totally went up in smoke and all the coaching movement basically put them at the back of the line relationship-building wise with ‘23 prospects (two years of recruiting groundwork was essentially lost)

    - The kids and their families are rejecting this new “I’m excited for the future” sentiment out of hand given that Harbaugh …. yanno, just tried to get outta dodge … which importantly he doesn’t deny

    - In fact, the single thing most of these kids know about him is the media coverage of him interviewing with the Vikings this offseason.

    - there is an incredibly widespread negative recruiting pitch (used across the board, in every conference) against UM, with receipts / screenshots, of his staff from last year putting feelers out to other coaches … looking to potentially secure a new gig for themselves given that many of them thought Harbaugh was being offered/taking the Vikings job

    And all of this self sabotage has nothing to do with NIL. Yet that fanbase is mostly fooled and is focused on pay to play. And hellbent on defending Harbaugh.

    "Lot of talk about what car I'm going I'm going to get after my current lease expires in January. Not ruling that out, but the one car I want - the one I've always wanted - is the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4. That's where the energy will likely be placed."
