Notre Dame's Commits and Top Targets Predict Super Bowl LII

February 4, 2018

It’s Super Bowl Sunday, so we checked in with a few familiar names to get a feel for the temperature of the final football game of the season. 

Notre Dame Commits/Signees 

QB Phil Jurkovec‍: “Eagles because I can’t stand the Patriots.” 

WR Braden Lenzy‍: "Pats. Tom Brady is the GOAT." 

OL Luke Jones‍: “I’m going with the Eagles. I like to see the underdogs win. Also, Jason Kelce is the center and coach Quinn coached him, so I’ll be keeping an eye on him today.” 

OL Cole Mabry‍: “Eagles. I just don’t want another Patriots Super Bowl win.” 

DE Justin Ademilola‍: “Eagles by a field goal.” 

DT Ja'mion Franklin‍: “Eagles because they’re the underdog.”

DT Jacob Lacey‍: “I want the Eagles to win, but I don’t think the Eagles defense can stop Tom Brady. That offense has been clicking all season.”

LB Shayne Simon‍: There's a guy on the Eagles from near where I'm from so I'm going with the Eagles."

CB Joe Wilkins Jr.‍: “I want Philly to win, but you can’t bet against the GOAT, Tom Brady. I think the Patriots are going to win, but I hope Philly wins.”  

DB Paul Moala‍: “Eagles. I’ve seen the Pats in the Super Bowl too many times and I love underdogs.” 

2018 Targets 

RB C'Bo Flemister‍: "Pats. Winning championships is second nature to the GOAT Tom Brady at this point."

WR Lawrence Keys III‍: “Patriots because of Tom Brady.” 

OL Jarrett Patterson‍: "I'm going to give this one to the Eagles. The advantage lies in their offensive and defensive lines. Philly can do just about anything with their OLine, whether it is running power schemes,  running zone outside or having them block out for screens. Meanwhile, Fletcher Cox will be a matchup nightmare in the middle. Zach Ertz is definitely a go-to guy on third down. It will be a tough game for the Eagles, but I believe they can pull it off." 

2019 Offers 

RB Steele Chambers‍: "Pats, it's hard to go against Tom Brady."

WR David Bell‍: “I have to pick the Pats because you’re dumb if you go against Tom Brady, unless he’s playing against the Giants (My favorite team).” 

WR Kameron Brown‍: "Pats because Brady is that man."

WR Trey Knox‍: "Patriots because of Tom Brady and coach Belichick."

WR TJ Sheffield‍: “Eagles. Jay Ajayi is going to give the Pats defense a hart time and open up the passing game.” 

OL Bryan Hudson‍: “Eagles 31-21. The Eagles defensive line will be in the backfield all night and take over the game.”

OL Andrew Kristofic‍: "I want the Eagles to win but I think the Pats will because they have Brady." 

OL John Olmstead‍: "I think the Eagles defense wins a championship."

DE Joseph Anderson‍: "Eagles."

DE NaNa Osafo-Mensah‍: “Patriots.”

DE Brandon Smith‍: "Eagles because they're the underdog." 

LB Keith Maguire Jr.‍: “Being from Philly, it would probably be illegal to bet against them. I think the Eagles defense will keep Tom Brady to minimal points and the offense is coming off a huge week.” 

LB Ositadinma Ekwonu‍: "Patriots, easy. Tom Brady is the GOAT." 

DB Raymond Woodie III‍: “As much as I want to see the Eagles win because Nelson Algohar and I are from the same city, I can’t bet against Tom Brady.”

DB Kenyatta Watson II‍: "Pats all the way. I was born in Boston."

S Litchfield Ajavon‍: “Eagles. It’s time for a change.” 

ATH Ronnie Hickman‍: “Eagles.”
