Incoming freshman Justin Ferguson thinks he's in a good position to get on the field right away and add to the Notre Dame offense in his first season.
i cant wait for him and Brown to take the field. I really think people are going to be surprised and forget about Deonte once they see the impact
We are oozing with speed, size and talent from our newer recruits.
Coach them up, turn them loose and let them play.
Dan, I saw the title of this article on the home page and said out loud, "I have been waiting for this." So thanks, I have been waiting for this.
We hear about backs who are Mr. Inside and Mr Outside, Thunder and Lightning. I am excited about what Brown and Feguson can become at W and X. Together, they could change the whole passing game, if we can just find a QB who can get them the ball (sarcastic, I am really excited about the young QB's).

can he drop EG a line, re: playbook re:re: memorize it.
From what I understand from what players have said, learning the playbook involves memorizing it but it also requires understanding the concepts behind the entire scheme(s?), and how various plays fit into the scheme and concepts. I get the impression that it is a lot more complicated that what most of us grew up with.
And from what Diaco has said, that complexity is what gives the offense an edge against "just line up and run to the ball" defenses.
And then they have to execute on the grass, as Ferguson stated in the interview.
And hit and get hit. And play under tremendous pressure. And go to class and study.
I am still grateful to the football players and coaches who paid for my track scholarship.
To me this kid looks physically mature. Like he has very good quick muscle twitch which equals strength at this position. I look for this kid to have a good career at ND. Year 2 will be a solid contributor.
6'2" and 205 without a college lifting program bodes well for us.. I expect him to have that Floyd size (6'3"/230) and ability to go get it, now we just need to hope he gets in his playbook and is ready to go Day 1 because that's when we'll need him.
