It’s Monday, so you know what that means, it’s time for another Recruiting Mailbag. There were so many great questions this week that we had to split this edition into two parts. This is a crime edition, and we have questions for the 2023 and 2024 classes.
The questions come from the Irish Breakdown subscribers in the message board.
@ tbed56: With Rodney Gallagher tending to West Virginia, do the staff identify a new target slot (and who do you think it will be), or do they put the full court press on Ronan Hanafin?
@ domer123: With the latest news that Gallagher will probably end up somewhere else, is there anyone else with a similar skill set on Notre Dame’s WR board?
It is always possible to extend the wide receiver plate. In fact, there is no direct stylistic comparison with Gallagher on the board. If he appreciates Notre Dame Mikea Tease can fulfill this role as a broad recipient.
I am, however, in favor of prioritizing talent over position. If you’re able to add a high level of talent, you can come up with a way to fit everything. Priority must be given to closing players Garden Great, Ronan Hanafin and Rico Flores. continue to develop a connection with Josh Manning it should also be a higher priority.
Of course, if the staff finds other players who fit the needs of the talent that Notre Dame is looking for, they can go that route.
@ 4irishgroupchat: I know it’s too early to tell, but hypothetically speaking, will an official home visit and a Dante Moore engagement be enough to land Richard Young at Notre Dame? If so, how would this affect the hiring of Jayden Limar and Jeremiyah Lover? Do the staff see Young as the best defender in that team? Sedrick Irvin Jr. we just removed it, so I think he could be a major player in ND Young.
If Notre Dame is able to land Dante Moore confidence should rise throughout the level for all uncompromised players, as well as for players who are committed to other programs. A quarterback of that caliber has a fairly unpredictable impact. As I said before, it’s very long for Young, but adding Moore certainly won’t hurt the cause.
I don’t think Young’s decision will actually affect Limar or Love. Both were actively hired while Irvin was in class. Now that it’s not over, the numbers are no different with Young now in a mix. Limar is a confident child and will not shy away from competition. Love has an interesting layer in its recruitment that it could play on the run, as well as probably being wide or safe. Notre Dame, of course, likes to run, but it still has that sporty atmosphere to its potential.
I think it would be more comfortable for the Irish to take all three to class in 2023, but the goal is to land at least two.
@ irishman7114: With the talent reception of runners, what’s the chance to move players like Gi’Bran Payne and Jeremiyah Love to the receiver or defense and make room for players like Richard Young (if we really land)? Can Gi’Bran Payne and Jeremiyah Love play other positions high enough to make that change?
It is an interesting hypothesis. From the right perspective, I’m always a fan of hiring versatile athletes who can offer promotion in multiple positions. Payne is a type of player who can get into a slot by running numbers. He gives some Theo Riddick vibrations, even at a better long speed.
Jeremiah Love he is the kind of long-time athlete who can work from a wide range of recipients. To keep it as basic as possible, both players present a profile to give Notre Dame a boost in the wide reception. Both players are on the rise in both positions. Love can also make a big difference in defense.
@ dtrain23: Sir, a new member is coming to you from New York City. With the news that Richard Young has taken an official visit, do you think this is a talent that attracts the talent situation, or that the Notre Dame coach is making such a fuss that kids are starting to feel like they need to “see this for themselves”. ? Thank you for everything you do, ROCK YOU !!!
I broke the influence of Richard The youngest Plans for recent official visits to South Bend. Young’s attraction to Notre Dame can be quantified by moment. That effect Marcus Freeman his contracting career cannot be underestimated, which is why he hired high-impact recruiters. Deland McCulloughand this has had a profound effect on Young’s interest in Notre Dame.
This employee is ruthless. It’s definitely the last part of the equation, there’s a real curiosity. The fact that Notre Dame is the 1st recruiting class certainly doesn’t hurt that level of interest. Whether Young ends up with the Irish indicates whether this intrigue is alive.
@ bplence1189: How threatening is Oklahoma Micah Teas now? Is there a rumor that Oklahoma is agreeing to give Teaser a wide receiver opportunity now with OU WR Ashton Cozart tending to flip to Oregon?
By all indications, Oklahoma is back in the game. I haven’t heard directly from them whether their message has changed, but something has clearly changed their attitude from Teaser’s point of view. I’ve been told it’s really extensive recruitment. Official visits will go a long way in determining where this is going. Notre Dame is ready for battle.
@ 4irishgroupchat: Hi guys, I know I’m looking forward to it, but who are the ones in the 2024 class that will be pushed hard by ND and have two (50 best) balls on each side of the ball that will have a real landing? Thank you and thank you for taking the time to answer the questions!
It’s never too early to start talking about 2024 hiring! In attack, it all starts with the quarterback position. Everyone is obsessed with talking about Dante Moore in 2023 class, and rightly so.
It turns out, however, that Moore isn’t the only Michigan quarterback at the top with the Irish.
Saline (Mich.) High School Call Sign CJ Carr Wolverine has deep ties to his grandfather, Lloyd CarrHe coached in Michigan from 1995 to 2007. Despite that track inside Michigan, Tommy Rees has done a great job putting himself in a good position with a talented quarterback.
One of the 2024 recruitment class elite options, Temple (Texas) Lake Belton wide receiver Micah Hudson he is an excellent athlete with a great rise in position. Chansi Stuckey and staff hope to continue to be expelled from Lone Star State Park. Hudson is ranked No. 11 overall and 2nd class wide receiver.
@ nd_6771: Are there any complications with being on the Notre Dame 86 scholarship regarding the reclassification of Braylon James?
It would be something to be guessed at, but I wouldn’t necessarily call it a complication. Bada Braylon James it actually reclassifies and then the numbers will work. It will be interesting to see if that happens. James’s long term is certainly more important than his short term, but of course it would help him with the numbers problem from the very beginning.
