Notre Dame Football

Weekend Visitors, Elko vs. WF, Who's Out? Who's In? Balis Feedback & More

January 20, 2017

It’s Friday and here at Irish Sports Daily, that means ISD Intel, our weekly peek behind the scenes of Notre Dame Football and Irish recruiting efforts.

This week, we take a deeper look a couple of the targets who will be headed to South Bend for official visits this weekend.

Get an idea of what makes Texas athlete Chris Miller such a special prospect and what his thought process is even though he’s committed to Colorado.

New Notre Dame defensive coordinator Mike Elko hasn’t tried to poach any of his recruits from Wake Forest, but he’s going head-to-head with his former school for Arkansas cornerback Tre Norwood (pictured). Find out how Elko has handled that situation and why we’re feeling more confident about the Irish’s chances.

Find out what Oklahoma safety Evan Fields will be looking for during his trip to South Bend this weekend and why he'll be getting a much-deserved break from recruiting right afterward.

Missouri wide receiver commit Jafar Armstrong won’t be headed to South Bend this weekend, but the Kansas wideout could be on his way next weekend. A source explains why Notre Dame is the only other school Armstrong is seriously considering.

Think CJ Holmes was concerned when Notre Dame extended an offer to Deon Jackson? Think again. Not only did Holmes know about the offer beforehand, he’s hoping the Atlanta running back joins him in South Bend.

What about Tennessee cornerback commit Terrell Bailey and Vanderbilt defensive end commit Dayo Odenyingbo? Well, one remains in play and one is out.

Top 2018 wide receiver target Micah Jones cancelled his visit to Notre Dame this weekend, but that’s not a negative. Find out why it’s not and when Jones could reschedule.

The Irish certainly haven’t forgotten about 2018 defensive line commits Jayson and Justin Ademilola.

We talked about a couple proposed recruiting rule changes earlier in the week. Find out what the parents of prospects think of them.

More on new strength and conditioning coach Matt Balis and feedback from his earliest days in South Bend.

Get all of that and more in this week’s ISD Intel.
