Where’s Ted Nugent? It’s A Free-For-All…Fleming & Fauria Commit

April 22, 2007

This is getting out of control. Notre Dame received their 9th and 10th oral commitments for the incoming 2008 class. YO! I just got home from the Blue-Gold Game… now I got all this typing to do. If Charlie doesn’t stop this crap, I may end up with carpel-tunnel (spelling?who cares).

I will have all my Blue-Gold Game stuff up soon, but first let me introduce you to the boys.
Darius Fleming. DE/OLB. This is what we ,as Irish fans, have been craving for a long time. A PREMIER linebacker. A CHICAGO product. And Mike Frank’s favorite slang, DEPTH. After weeks of speculating, Darius made it official after speaking with coach Weis this morning before the BG game. Fleming becomes commit #9 and the 3rd linebacker. 3rd linebacker. This Corwin Brown is the real deal. Many have said that ND will take 4-5 (and maybe a 6th) linebackers this class. The spots are disappearing fast and ND has their eyes set on Arthur Brown and Steve Filer. If they land these two, pray for our opponents…seriously pray for them.
Joseph Fauria. TE. Welcome to Tight End U. AGAIN! Notre Dame received its 10th verbal commit for 2008, and its 3rd from California. 3rd from California. ND is becoming THE place to be for TEs and QBs (DEPTH, DEPTH,DEPTH)… like it should be. Joseph plays in the same league as current ND commits Anthony McDonald and Dayne Crist. Someone call Tony and Joe and tell them not to kill each other before they get to ND! Joseph is also the nephew of former Patriot tight end Christian Fauria. But don’t think that just because he played for Weis that he pushed him towards ND. He was pulling for Colorado (Alma Mata) this whole time. Looks like the brains in the family are in the younger generation.
Congratulations, and welcome to the Notre Dame Family Joseph and Darius!

The Cannons Are Loaded…Crist Commits

April 19, 2007

Dayne Crist is the top quarterback in the state of California. Dayne Crist is coming to Notre Dame to play for the Irish. Sound familiar? For the 2nd year in a row ND is stealing one from the Poodle’s backyard. The news leaked out from the LA Times today. Crist chose the Irish over U$C, LSU, and Stanford.He becomes the 8th verbal commit for the Irish’s 2008 incoming class. The announcement was taped the other day and is prepared to run tonight on FSN at 10:30 Pacific time, but the LA Times in an eerily timed move, let the cat out of the bag today. (Mitch Mustain announced today that he will transfer to U$C).

Obviously, this is fantastic news. Now ND MUST go hard after the top-flight WRs. It’s not that the Irish haven’t been gunning for these kids, it’s just that they haven’t been pulling the trigger just yet. But with the cupboard full for at least another 4-5 years, it may make the decision easier for a few of the recruits out there.

This also adds some momentum heading into the Blue-Gold Game. There is going to be a lot of talent visiting ND this weekend, although not as much as last year, and I like the fact they are going to see some slots filling up. Rumors are flying around about Darius Flemming(LB) and Brandon Newman (NT) possibly committing this weekend as well. Is there a game going on?
