WHERE’S THE MOB?: Brian Kelly talked about the freshmen running backs on Thursday in relation to the Purdue game plan and he confirmed there was a package for both Greg Bryant and Tarean Folston. ISD hopes this is the case as not playing either of these two any longer may have an impact on recruiting future elite running backs.
We’re not saying Bryant and Folston were promised anything from the Notre Dame coaching staff in terms of playing time, we’re just saying if they were told they’d be given a fair shake and are performing at a high level in practice, then it’s about time they got some meaningful playing time in a game. High-level recruits need to see other high-level recruits play as freshmen or they’ll look elsewhere on National Signing Day.
