Behind The Ball

April 19, 2008

Things are hectic around the Subway Domer household. My wife’s birthday always seems to fall on, or around the annual Blue-Gold spring game and takes up a little bit of time. Add that to a slew of home projects and WHAM… you just flew through a weekend. With that said, I haven’t been on top of things these past few days. Whoops! Two commits later I am back online and ready to rumble as much as the Fighting Irish are doing with each other on the field.

Notre Dame has once again, for the third year in a row, gone into Southern California and grabbed a 5 star prospect out the Poodles clutches and newcomer Slick Rick. (Rick Neuheisal from UCLA for you unenlightened ones).
Cierre Wood

Cierre is the #1 RB and #3 overall prospect according to Rivals.com. He is a gamebreaker. Tons of speed and lateral movement. If his senior year is like his junior year, be prepared to hear the Reggie Bush comparisons. Tons of talent hear with Wood, and now the Irish have the tedious task of keeping Wood to his commitment while he is living amongst the enemy.

This recent commitment will add solid depth into what is shaping into a very deep and talented running back stable joining SO. Robert Hughes, SO. Armando Allen, JR. James Aldridge, and FR. Jonas Gray.
I personally met Cierre at the Blue-Gold game (as well as about all 30,000 plus from the looks of things) and he was a very good kid. He signed anything that came his way and posed for any photo op an adoring fan asked for from him. He handled the spotlight very well and was very well spoken and courteous to any and all. You can label him an “ND Man” right now.

Now a little foretaste of the feast to come…


Tyler Stockton

The Irish received another commitment that was just as big as Wood. Tyler Stockton is a 6’1″ 295 defensive tackle from The Hun School in New Jersey.

What in the hell is going on? For what seemed like an eternity, ND has struggled to recruit defensive players, and more specifically defensive lineman. But, after a good haul last year, the Irish are looking to keep the momentum rolling with a solid commit from Mr. Stockton.

Stockton adds much needed depth to a defensive line that is very much need of top notch players. The more the merrier and definitely the fresher.

WELCOME TO NOTRE DAME WOOD & STOCKTON!!!

One more thing. I met Jake Golic at the Spring game as well. Jake is a really nice kid and seems very eager to get to ND and continue the Golic tradition. Honestly though, it took a second to recognize who he was. He looks MUCH bigger in person than he portrays on video. He also mentioned that he read Subway Domer (I was wearing my shirt and HAD to ask). Cool.
