Everyone can complain about losing Greenberry, and saying how bad this class is. Bottom line is what happens on the field, if Notre Dame goes out and wins 9-10 games this year, especially with the schedule. Nobody is gonna care what happened today. Not saying losing out on Greenberry was a loss, but he could end up being a flop, Ferguson could come in and out play him. Notre Dame's recruiting classes will continually go up and down from year to year until results are produced on the field, the class is still Top 15 which means they still have talent coming in. No reason to panic.
If he get hurt or is a bust nd offers so much more as a back up plan. Just ask Sean cwynar or the WR grad this year ( I forget his name, maybe deion walker) about their back up plans. They have them.

Awful news. Awful ending to how this class turned out. Not blaming staff but the way this closed was not good.

Brian Kelly on then recruiting trail is like his team on the field....totally undisciplined....no Darby, Greenberry, Agholor, or Poole....Horrid!
Wes Morgan just posted his article on the top for B&G. Pretty interesting...
Like most of you completely shocked and I do have to agree that in the 20 plus years I've followed recruiting this is the worst close of a class I can remember. No last minute recruits. No buzz among recruits about the program. Very strange because it really ended so well with last years class, the performance on the field was really explainable by the lack of a top notch QB which was addressed in recriting this cycle, and they lost to pretty good teams (except maybe USF) no Tulane or Navy losses. Youth played for them so they had that to sell, and some of the higher ranked guys had seniors leaving in front of them (Darby, Greenbery) To go from 19 plus a transfer to 16 and waiting on one. It just really seems odd. The closest thing I can think of is CJ leak going to Wake in terms of the reputations of the programs involved.
Wake at least is in a AQ conference. Houston (Big East may lose it's bid by the time Houston starts) has less shot than ND at getting a BCS bid and that isn't sour grapes. It just doesn't make any sense. Were the coaches they lost that good at recruiting? It didn't seem like it. Again not sour grapes just opinion based on following this. You hear about Alford, Cooks, Diaco, maybe Hinton.
Oh well. They addressed QB and Safety, added some depth along the lines. Got some atheletes in Russell, Carlisle, Brown and Tee. Do have some young talent already on the team. Need to win on the field and reset priorities. Maybe in retrospect , just thinking out loud, bringing all those kids in for USC might not have been such a good idea. I don't know.
More scholarships for next year.

Oh well. Lets move on.
His committement could have influenced other WRs to go elsewhere. For this reason, I have no problem hoping his football career is a bust. I don't wish he gets hurt or anything like that. I just hope his QB stinks, his OL stinks, and he drops many passes.

Read it...the continuing thread on the decommitts and lost chances is that they liked the coaches better at the other schools..Darby not even allowing BK to visit..Warriner/Hinton with Decker....could list more but what is the point..
