23 commits in and I would be happy at this point if we get 23 LOI’s. T. Folston RB looking shaky. Wish List 2 DL: Eddie Vanderdoes 6’3″ 310 would get significant playing time in 2013 BUT he will visit Alabama this weekend, Of course, Alabama has about 20 DL ahead of him. All bets […]

Irish Ink #23 recruit Commit Durham Smythe | 2013

Thank God for Irish fans – Durham Smythe a long time Irish fan and a de-commit from Texas doesn’t leave ND this weekend without committing to the Irish. 6’5″ 230 will add to the long line of Irish Tight Ends. I fully expected this but again the Notre Dame Nation is still strong across the […]
