Over the last 10 football recruiting runs, Notre Dame 3 times has enrolled an extra QB in a single class.
Mr. Davie landed 4 in ’00, Coach Willingham contracted two in 2004 and Mr. Weis caught 2 in 2006.
Brian Kelly will probably soon join that club, and he may even surpass all of them.
The new Notre Dame head football coach, who had only 1 quarterback on scholarship when he was hired last month, could add in five in a recruiting class that goes official on Wednesday, but 2 of those are considered multi-position students and in all likelihood wouldn’t join the QB party at Notre Dame.
Three – early commit Tommy Rees, quarterback Andrew Hendrix and quarterback Luke Massa – are athletes whose roles will likely stay at quarterback, according to CBS College Sports Network Notre Dame Football recruiting analyst Tom Lemming.
The other 2 quarterbacks, Danny Spond at Columbine High in Littleton, Colorado, and Derek Roback in Waverly, Ohio, are high school football recruits who are marked players and may change to other positions, Lemming said. Danny Spond is a previous CO recruit, and Roback is committed to OH. All 4 uncommitted football recruits are expected to visit Notre Dame this semester.
You know what, bring in athletes, Lemming exclaimed. I say the more the merrier when it comes to athletes. รีวิวรวมที่เที่ยว
The 6-foot-2, 232-pound Spond, says Lemming, is already a good linebacker. And the 6-3, 210-pound Roback is a former national finalist in the Punt, Pass & Kick competition.
Despite the fact that Spond and Roback are anticipated to shift positions if they select Notre Dame Football, Coach Kelly is still likely to face queries from those who think signing greater than 1 QB in one class is a football mistake. And the disparagers will use history to prove their point.
Of those eight QBs who were part of multiple-quarterback classes at Notre Dame football recruiting, the only one to stop his career as a quarterback and at Notre Dame was Darrin Bragg, a Willingham football recruit who was switched to wide receiver, then left ND completely before being convinced by Head Coach Weis to return for his last year as an fill-in quarterback.
In summary, the past evidence doesn’t validate what Kelly is attempting. But this season is no regular year in that Coach Kelly has not really received a wide chart at the role.
“What happened was they made a major mistake in not bringing in anybody last year,” Lemming stated. “So they have to rectify the mistake from last year.”
