Kid is our best RB prospect we’ve had in a while. I loved Jadarian Price, too, but Love has more wiggle (or at least showed that in his film when Price didn’t need to). Kid could be special behind our OL
Dylan Edwards moved up to #100 lol
they both should be top 100 players
Ranking are just as much about building the fanbases for clicks as anything else now
Yeah, in all honesty, with the numbers and highlights Edwards was producing down the stretch, he's legit. I think his size will make him more of a gadget/role player than an every down positional player, but hell, that's what the Rocket was, if we're honest. He can still make a huge impact in that role.
I love him as a prospect but he is going to need a good OL in front of him
I’m not sure he will have that at Colorado
Play him in the slot and throw him now screens or put him in motion to either run end-arounds or throw to him on the move. Also use him in the return game. He's not a kid they'll use him traditional ways.
i hope they use him horribly at Colorado and he leaves after this year to come to nd.
This guy. I think.
3 star DL from St. X commits to Elston. Will be interesting to see how he progresses, but seems like we have like a dozen guys above him on the board
is it me or does he have a small face?
you are correct
That neck doe
If he grows into that neck look out.
Over the last two recruiting cycles ND signed 38 (4 star or better players) and lost zero to transfering out, that's a pretty impressive haul as I went and calculated this for some teams (Texas A&M unsurprisingly was most affected by the portal):
Bama signed 50
UGA signed 49
Ohio St signed 39
Texas signed 39
ND is at 5th at 38
Texas A&M 35
Penn State 32
Its the Moneyball path to roster construction and it makes sense. ND isn't going to collect top 50 kids like UGA or Bama but they can try to find the aggregate that gets them closer. I really believe in the Blue Chip Ratio, it clearly works. If ND can continue to collect as many top 300 kids as possible, develop the hell out of the roster, redshirt and process, and sprinkle grad transfers from the portal you can see the path. By 2024 this would create a 70%+ BCR roster (by 2025 its well over 80%). Bama was at 91% this past year, UGA 77% for reference, I understand the SEC BCR prospects would be better than ND's that why it super important to push the aggregate as high as possible.
ND needs to average 18 4 star or better recruits per class and they need to bring in roughly 4 (4 star grad transfers) per year. I think this is entirely possible- anything you get out of 3 star recruits or PWO's is just gravy. Bring up the aggregate, let Freeman keep cooking on the trail
The coaches on the road updates are hilarious- all these coaches hustling all over the country then Harry who goes and sees one prospect a day
Bama families out here giving the ND NIL pitch
i have no problem with this lol
let him cook
Join the club LSU
god im so glad he's not the HC anymore
Carter Nelson's basketball highlights are stupid for a TE
I wonder if Raridon will get an extra year of eligibility due to his injury. These two on the field together would be absurd athleticism for TE play
If Raridon is as good as we’re hoping there’s no way he stays an extra year. Probably a good chance he’s even done after three years.
he’s had two ACL’s, better chance he never plays than is done after 3
someone in the 4HL said it best, Carter Nelson is a smaller more athletic version of Raridon...insane hops and athleticism
isn’t Carr’s teammate a top 250ish player nationally at TE? Curious if his not having an offer yet means they’re confident on Nelson or if they’re just slow playing it because they already have Larson in the fold
O’Malley confirme Aidan k is one of the guys they told doesn’t have a roster spot next year. Seems strange
Did this get posted yet? Top 10s are annoying
they seem to be passing on all the Midwest TE’s- looking for more athletic pass catchers
ndnation is having a serious meltdown about players getting put on medical or academic scholarships and losing their roster spot
as opposed to being told to leave? shut up grey hairs
the academic thing confuses me, are they off the team? Couldn’t they continue on as “walk ons”
I don’t think they can dress ever. Not entirely sure about practice
Have they not noticed that this has been going on for a while?
I don't think so. They can transfer or stay at ND with academic scholarships. Apparently new HCs get a year where they can transition players to academic scholarships while they remake their rosters. "Soft cuts" if you will.
Is he still saying it? On the pod they made it sound like they'd heard that, but like something may have changed with him.
Ugh at the rushing performances against two of these teams
Today he said it
Ndnation folks are experts at finding things to complain about.
Interesting. As of the II pod it sounded like he may still have a spot. I wonder if the rehab hasn't gone as well.
Yeah, I think he said they "heard' he didn't have a spot but was enrolled in classes and doing team activities. Seemed like a mis-communication to me.
Next coach is going to need to hit the portal hard
Burton will carry them.
