Senior to be TE Troy Niklas will fore- go his senior year and enter the NFL draft. Not at all surprised by this as he graded to go in the 2nd round. Niklas is one big dude 6’7″ and about 280 lbs–he’ll take the $$$$ now and come back later for his degree–hell the Pros may even make a DE out of him in a 4 down front. So that leaves us with just one experienced TE–Ben Koyack, who I think will have a great year–finally living up to his potential.
ND should try to get Alex Welch back for a 5th year–think he was going to Miami Ohio. ND should really go after that Schultz kid much harder now.
Devaris Daniels WR suspended for Spring semester–something just did not click with this kid. Question is–more to come?
Recruiting–DL commit Matt Dickerson 6’4″ 265 flipped to UCLA ( who continued to recruit him in the down period) UCLA just another dirty player in the college game. What is more disturbing is ND confirmed their commitment even after he fractured his lower back–for a 4 year ride. With that type of injury he would probably not see playing time for 2 years–if ever. Don’t like to lose guys–but this could have been a wasted scholarship.
So a few other slots open up for the 2014 class.
What the hell is taking so long in confirming VanGorder as DC!!!!! We need this guy recruiting like today.
