Notre Dame Football

Young DBs Growing Up, Watkins Excited For Return, Recruiting & More

March 10, 2017

Fridays at Irish Sports Daily mean ISD Intel, our weekly peek behind the scenes of Notre Dame Football and Irish recruiting efforts.

For the second straight week, we’re heavy on team information with spring practice having started this week.

We go deep into the attitudes of Notre Dame’s young defensive backs. They were thrown into the fire as true freshman. There were some ups and there were some downs, but virtually everybody believes they – and as an extension the program – are going to be better for it in the future. And in their mind, the future begins now.

We take a look at defensive lineman Micah Dew-Treadway and how he’s reshaped his mind and body heading into his junior season.

Find out why cornerback Nick Watkins isn’t taking anything for granted after missing the entire 2016 season with a broken arm.

We’ve got plenty of recruiting content as well, including a look at the trio of prospects Notre Dame offered from Watkins’ alma mater in the last week.

After grabbing two of the top tight ends in the country in the Class of 2017, the Irish are in the mix with several top 2018 targets. We take a look at one, who has extraordinarily strong ties to Notre Dame.

You hear the term “Notre Dame kid” a lot and we’ve got another 2018 West Coast prospect who fits that bill.

We also hear from the coach of one high school powerhouse on what makes Notre Dame’s Brian Polian such a successful recruiter.

And we take a look back the career of Steve Vasturia and how his AAU coach is indirectly responsible for Matt Farrell being at Notre Dame right now.

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