ISD's Full Lid For Monday

April 19, 2021

Irish In Good Shape With 2022 WR Target
St. Christopher’s head coach Lance Clelland has plenty of knowledge of Notre Dame with his brother being former Irish offensive lineman Lane Clelland.

Notre Dame is now recruiting one of Clelland’s stars, 2022 Virginia receiver Andre Greene Jr. and Clelland believes the Irish have a great shot.

“I think for a young man like Andre Greene, Notre Dame represents the best of both worlds. It represents excellence in the classroom and academics, which is first and foremost. He's coming from a great academic institution that he's been at for three and a half years at St. Christopher School.

“I think he's on the verge of narrowing it down a little bit, slightly. I know that Notre Dame is right there and like I said, they've done a great job communicating with him and certainly they've already had lots of success on the recruiting trail ready for 2022s and he's anxious to keep getting to know these coaches and visit the school in person.

“So, I think the Irish will be there until the end.”

2023 TE Talks Busy Swing
Jaxon Howard expects to visit dozens of college campuses in a little over two weeks of traveling during the month of June, including Notre Dame.

“As far as the offensive side of the ball, everybody knows the tight ends are a high-class specialty when it comes to Notre Dame. They can definitely produce great tight ends, so that is definitely something I think of and maybe for the defensive side of the ball too. They produce great defensive linemen as well.

“For me, the biggest thing is just me trying to get down there and kind of getting a good feel for the environment and really being able to tell what stands out from them and everybody else. I'm excited to get down there.”

Uyeyama Breaks Down Irish O-Line
ISD expert Jamie Uyeyama breaks down Notre Dame’s puzzle pieces along the offensive line.

We won’t know how everything will fit until Jarrett Patterson is back working with the group in August. The picture is still not fully formed on the offensive line, but it’s starting to become more clear. Positions are set with most of the group and the pieces will fall into place with a unit that is trying to reload rather than rebuild.

Kurt Hinish Talks New Scheme
Fifth-year Irish defensive lineman Kurt Hinish is fired up about the scheme new defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman has brought to South Bend.

"I love the new scheme. Coach Freeman is a great coach. I'm able to be cut loose a little bit more. I get a lot more one-on-one blocks with the center, which I rarely lose. 

"I love the scheme and what we're doing right now. We play a lot more fast and free because the defense isn't as complicated as we've had in the past."
