Recruiting fizzle

With national signing day just around the bend, it appears that Notre Dame's recruiting cycle is about over.

Will Blackwell, our final remaining big-time Defensive Tackle target, committed to LSU.

Major Wright, the hard-hitting safety, is widely being reported as an Ohio State lean.

We still have a shot at running back Robert Hughes out of Chicago, but rumors put him going to Illinois. (Which is unfortunate, as we will be having an open tryout at running back in Spring practice with Darius leaving)

We may get another recruit or two before the big day, but I doubt we'll see any big Top-100 splashes coming out way.

All told, however, this is another top 10 recruiting class, and provides this team with the base it needs to be competitive going forward. We are still a little thin, expecially at defensive line, but our depth is slowly improving (albeit with inexperienced but athletic players).

Still no word on Corwin Brown. I wonder what's taking so long?
