    Kelly's Prospects


    Register to remove this advertisement
    Now that the quiet period is over I would imagine that we will see quite a few more new names popping up as being looked at by Coach Kelly and his new staff. We might as well keep them all together in one thread as well as setting up individual threads for all of them.

    Here are some of the names we have seen so far.

    Committed:

    KY ATH Austin Collinsworth

    FL DE Bruce Heggie

    OH QB Luke Massa-

    KY OT Tate Nichols

    OH ATH Derek Roback-

    HI DE Kona Schwenke-

    CO ATH Danny Spond-


    Committed Elsewhere and Previously Offered by ND:

    FL WR Kadron Boone- Boone is still a TT commit, but even prior to the Leach fiasco Alford had continued to recruit him.

    Previously listed as having ND interest:

    TX QB Scotty Young- Young was a very early commit to Texas Tech but with Leach's firing and Tuberville's choice of an OC it appears to be only a matter of time until he is a TT de-commit.

    IL QB Sean Robinson- Camped at ND but Tommy Rees was picked over him by Charlie for an ND offer. Robinson eventually committed to Purdue, but with Hendrix looking at UF the ND staff also approached Robinson to see if he had any interest. Robinson said no.

    IN WR Dyjuan Lewis- A commit to Kelly at Cincy, and now uncommitted Lewis has sent his transcripts to ND in hopes of securing an Irish offer.

    New names:

    FL CB Dionte Ponder- A teammate and cousin of Kadron Boone, the Irish and Alford are now recruiting Ponder although he also does not yet have an offer. 1/27 Update- Ponder gets his offer.

    GA LB Michael Taylor- Tennessee commit who will be visited by Alford tommorow. Also does not yet have an offer. Florida commit.

    OH DE Jibreel Black- One time IU commit, currently a Cincy Soft Verbal. Kelly is looking to see if he can move Black from the Queen City to Our Lady's campus and Black is looking around as well. Sounds like a perfect match if the mechanics can be overcome.

    NJ OT Dan Foose- Has a Cincy offer and an interest in ND. No word yet on whether the interest will be reciprocated.

    HI S Jeremy Ioane- Offered 1/20/2010.

    TX DT Eric Humphrey- According to his coach ND will be visiting Eric to see if they can persuade him to change one of his final 2 OV's to ND.

    TX CB Adrian Lee- Lee has told numerous sites that he has an ND offer. If confirned it will be the 2nd offer of the Kelly era. California commit

    GA DE Henry Anderson- Anderson currently falls into the same category as Foose & Ioane above, but if Blake Lueders goes through with his scheduled visit to Stanford on 1/16 look for ND to put a full court press on Anderson as well. A little tit for tat is always a good thing in January anymore.

    OH DE Marcus Rush- ND rumored to be in contact with Hendrix's Moeller HS teammate and current Sparty commit.

    MO WR Keeston Terry- Kansas commit who is rumored to be possibly an ND target, most likely as a Safety prospect.

    HI LB Shaydon Akuna- Considered by Rivals to be the #1 prospect out of Hawaii this year just as you know who was last year. With Jeremy Ioane now being officially offered rumors of an Akuna visit or offer will probably get stronger as Akuna is a cousin of Ioane.

    FL WR Shawn Corker- Currently a Texas Tech commit who could be just an insurance policy if Bennett Jackson starts to waver again.

    CA OT Michael Criste- Currently a Washington commit, Criste is listed as having an ND offer by Rivals.

    FL CB Terrence Brooks- A FSU soft verbal commit who is now listed as having an Irish offer on Rivals.

    MO RB Brandon Bourbon- A Stanford Soft Verbal, (is there any other kind) Brandon has been offered by ND.

    Could add NJ OT Dan Foose to the list of new names - had a Cincy offer and he sent his recent film to Kelly, although he hasn't talked to him yet. Offers from BC, Illinois, Minnesota, and the obligatory Stanford, among others.

    I'm going to add Foose to this list but I'm not sure whether he is profile worthy yet. Even with the state of ND OL recruiting right now, Foose seems to be a longer shot even than Ioane right now despite the fact that he has a Cincy offer. My Jersey friends tell me that Foose really does fall into the warm bodies category if ND does end up offering him.

    That's what some of the comments I saw about him were saying, but thought we should at least put his name out there due to the Cincy offer and him showing interest in ND.

    I agree, plus he has the look of a mob enforcer so we should be careful not to piss him off.

    I don't think there has been any contact between the two sides at all yet.
