The Notre Dame Fighting Irish just finished a very successful 2021 recruiting cycle, and Joshua brought our friend Tom Loy onto the show from 247’s Irish Illustrated to provide a little insight. In this episode:
- Some recruiting rankings were hurt by no camps and/or season because of COVID.
- Ryan Barnes is verified.
- Devin Aupiu will be missed on the west coast.
- A running back theory that Tom doesn’t think is crazy (but maybe won’t co-sign).
- Missing out on Donovan Edwards is sad.
- The offensive line class is one of the best in the country - of course.
- The vast potential of Joe Alt.
- Will there be a position switch for Mitchell Evans in the future?
- Trusting Mike Elston and his process on the defensive line.
- Why isn’t Prince Kollie - Butkus Award winner Prince Kollie - a 5-Star Tom? WHY TOM?!
- The wide receiver trio and how they add to what Notre Dame needs on the perimeter.
- Talking about a 4th WR that wasn’t.
- Guys that Tom thought were some of the biggest misses (not including Will Shipley).
- Did the Irish do enough at safety in the 2021 cycle?
- The 2 year cycle - are we good here?
- Looking ahead to 2022 and the offer sheet.
And plenty more in an information-packed episode.
