I’ve been hearing a lot of stuff (that’s the nice word for it) about how ND is going to lose the National Championship to Alabama. People are saying ND can’t compete with a team of Alabama’s caliber and that ND can’t beat a team from the SEC. Last time I checked we’re the only undefeated team that is going to stroll through Sun Life Stadium on January 7th, but I say let’s watch the game until the end, look at the score, and then decide who is the better team.
Some great news for the Irish is that offensive tackle Zack Martin and nose guard Louis Nix III are returning for another season! It’ll be great to have these veterans back on the team.
In recruiting news, ND received a commitment from 5 star running back, Greg Bryant, who will graduate from high school this spring. Bryant is 5’11 and weighs 197 pounds. I don’t have a 40 time yet, but when I do you’ll all be the first to know. Rivals 100 ranks him 16th nationally.
ND also received a commitment from 5 star linebacker, Jaylon Smith. He is 6’3 weighs 212 and has a 40 time of 4.59 seconds (I bet he makes fast people look not fast). Rivals ranked him 3rd nationally.
4 star offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey gave ND a solid verbal commitment. This kid is huge! He’s 6’9 and weighs 280. That is some great protection on the line for Golson. No rating by Rivals for McGlinchey nationally.
These are just a few of the awesome prospects coming down the pipe for ND. I’m excited to see what these kids can do and the type of players they will develop into. Stay tuned each week for more exciting recruiting news!
