    (You want recruiting news? We’ve got recruiting news!) South Carolina quarterback Everett Golson committed to Notre Dame today, officially switching from a pledge he made to North Carolina back in February. (Feels good to be on the other end of this, doesn’t it, Irish fans?) Golson plans on enrolling early in January, making this an…

    I don’t usually get overly into recruiting here, but some of the news surrounding Cam McDaniel’s commitment to the Irish has been pretty interesting. In McDaniel, the Irish get one of the most prolific running backs and football players in the North Texas area, seemingly a huge coup for Notre Dame. But, whether it’s a…

    Interesting update on recruiting from the guys at IrishSportsDaily.com. Resident ISD coach Bryan Driskell has a report on blue-chip offensive tackle Matt Hegarty from New Mexico, who received a visit from head coach Brian Kelly, offensive line coach Ed Warinner, and outside linebackers coach Kerry Cooks on Sunday after the Irish’s big win in Southern…

    While most Irish fans wait for some of the bigger names to fall, Notre Dame offered a scholarship to Coppell, Texas all-purpose back/return man Cam McDaniel. He promptly accepted, becoming the Irish’s 17th verbal commitment to the class of 2011.  McDaniel had offers from programs like Colorado, Iowa, Stanford, and Cincinnati. McDaniel doesn’t wow recruitniks,…

  5. Justice Hayes’ U-turn ends up with commitment to Michigan

    In one of the more bizarre turn of events, Notre Dame has lost running back commitment Justice Hayes — one of Notre Dame’s most enthusiastic high school recruiters — who has decommitted from the Irish and in a matter of days given his pledge to the home state Michigan Wolverines. “I’m a Wolverine now,” Hayes…

  6. Martin takes dead aim at recruiting perceptions

    Nov 11, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

    One of the biggest questions when Brian Kelly was hired as the head coach of Notre Dame was whether or not he could recruit the blue-chip caliber players needed to compete at the highest level of college football. Over the course of the eleven months or so Kelly and his staff have been on campus,…

  7. Burton accepts Florida offer, decommits from Irish

    Oct 26, 2010, 2:03 PM EDT

    Chalk another poaching up to Urban Meyer and the Florida Gators of a top-flight defensive recruit, joining Justin Trattou and Omar Hunter of years past. Only this one, Irish fans probably should’ve seen coming. Defensive end Clay Burton decommitted from Notre Dame earlier this week, accepting a scholarship offer from Florida, where his older brother,…
