What a wild ride you guys! Per usual with National Signing Days and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, everything starts really hopeful and then it evolves into a big ass disaster - which then finds a soft landing. Things looked really dark yesterday evening, and Notre Dame fans were feeling a bit cheated after getting some sunshine and rainbows for a few days.
Still... the Notre Dame coaching staff worked their butts off and although I am normally inclined to say that in recruiting a 2nd place finish is the same as a 200th place finish... the work seems to have paid off.
Notre Dame legitimately has a shot at 5 prospects making their decisions. These 5 are based on the last updates that came out across the internet late Tuesday night.
- 4 Star OT Jarrett Patterson (10:00 AM)
- 4 Star CB Noah Boykin (11:30 AM)
- 3 Star CB D.J. Brown (2:30 PM)
- 3 Star RB C’Bo Flemister (5:45 PM)
- 4 Star WR Lawrence Keys III (sometime between 11:00 AM & 12:00 PM)
Don't forget that we are also expecting 3 Star Offensive Lineman Luke Jones to send his letter of intent as well.
This post will serve as a live thread for any that want to comment, complain, praise, or emote about the day- but please keep it civil. We also ask that you refrain from trying to contact any recruit throughout the day (and well... ever). Let the coaches recruit and try to stop yourself from being a stranger in a high school kids mentions column (it’s the adult thing to do).
We will be here all day and most of the night as we wrap this thing up and put a bow on it for you.
