Notre Dame Football Recruiting Central - 2013 Edition

Welcome to One Foot Down's Recruiting Central page, 2013 Edition.

This is where you'll be able to reference scholarship numbers, roster spots, recruit information, player breakdowns, and much more. We are still playing around with content and format a bit, so if you have a suggestion, please feel free to share.

I would like to take a moment to discuss contact with potential recruits. Unless you are personally related to them or have known them for the majority of their life, don't contact them via social media. Ever. Don't do it. No excuses. It won't help, could likely hurt the program's chances and is a potential NCAA violation.

Also, many fans get all excited or disappointed based on the recruiting service rankings of incoming players. These rankings are an inexact science at best. Some highly regarded athletes never play a snap in college. Other players that were passed over by top-tier programs become All-Americans. Rankings are generally weighed on a player's height/weight/40 time, location/level of competition and off-season camp circuits more than in-season performance. Trust in the staff's ability to spot talent that fits their system and their ability to develop said talent more than what one site says over another.
