Tom Loy with Rocco Spindler

It’s a one man booth today with Joshua. Fortunately for all of you, he was able to get Irish Illustrated’s Tom Loy (@TomLoy247)on the line to talk about the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and their recruiting effort for the 2021 class. In this episode:

  • The re-commitment of Philip Riley.
  • The flip of 6-Star kicker Josh Bryan.
  • The giant question concerning scholarship numbers for 2021 and beyond.
  • Tom brought up Donovan Edwards first, so we talk about this elite running back and Notre Dame’s chances.
  • OTHER running back discussion.
  • Can Notre Dame flip Caleb Johnson from the Auburn Tigers?
  • The David Abiara situation and Notre Dame’s standing with Kelvin Gillium.
  • Joshua has a Don’te Thornton problem that Tom takes care of with ease.
  • Get real excited about Lorenzo Styles because he’s legit.
  • The cloudy future of the 2022 cycle.
  • Tom’s thoughts on this current class for the Irish.
  • Answering the “top 5 class” thing - again.

And plenty more weaved in and out of the show.
