    4-star CB Kalon Gervin has committed to ND following Junior Day. He's out of Detroit, Michigan and has been ranked as the #158 recruit in the nation, #10 athlete in the nation and the #4 prospect in Michigan for 2018 by 24/7Sports. He picked ND over offers from Florida, Michigan, MSU, LSU and PSU. Me likey!

    GO IRISH!

    I saw some info on a tweet he put out about having a big announcement in a day or two. I wondered if he might commit. Great news they need CB's and he is a talented one out of a good Michigan school that Notre Dame have had a hard time getting kids from.

    The other thing I like about this class is that 5 of the7 kids are defensive players.

    Position of need and a position of top talent. We need to add talent to our secondary. Great pick up.

    Speaking of adding to the secondary... ND just received a commitment from 4-star safety Derrik Allen. Allen is the #52 overall recruit in the nation, the #5 safety in the nation and the #8 prospect in Georgia. After developing a good relationship with DC Elko (who was recruiting him at WF originally) and with Todd Lyght, he chose ND over offers from Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, Florida, FSU, Michigan, OSU and many others.

    Love getting this help on defense. GO IRISH!

    Another 4 star defensive player. Wow this class is starting out strong. Is it me or Elko has put recruited BVG already. This can be a very special class if we can also win this year.

    Allen is big time talent. Big pick up here. Don't surprise if we land a 4 star WR soon

    Jesus..why the F did BK wait to long to get rid of BVG. Elko is bringing in the big fish. They must like what he has to offer. I think this can be a pretty dam good class. Looks like the moves BK made are going to pay off. Now, lets not suck balls this yr, and hope the all make it to campus this time next yr.

    Van Gorder only recruited two kids to Notre Dame while he was DC Jamir Jones and Pete Mokwuah. Elko just by putting in an ounce of effort has over taken him in two months.

    It's hard to get excited about a class when signing day is a year away, but this is the best start to a class I can remember in years.
