Hot Diggety Damn! Two More Recruits Commit to ND!

Your Irish Eyes subscription really paid off this week, as there was some serious moving and shaking leading up to today's announcements. This afternoon, not one but two top recruits committed to Notre Dame, bringing the class size up to 14.

First up is a kid named Golden, which one would naturally think would be a no-brainer to go to Notre Dame. Golden Tate is a versatile athlete who could play one of five different positions in college. As a result, it seems like recruiting services aren't quite sure what to do with him. Scout has him as a four-star Wide Receiver, Rivals has him as an Athlete, and ESPN.com has him as the #3 Cornerback in the country and the #18 overall player.

Tate is also an accomplished baseball player who will try out for a spot on the squad when he gets to campus. Suffice to say, one of the big first steps in Tate's Notre Dame career will be picking out a position. With his speed and versatility, he should be able to make an impact wherever he ends up playing.

Next up is Ian Williams, a big, bruising prototypical defensive tackle from Florida. DT was probably by far and away the biggest need in this year's recruiting class, and getting a natural DT of Williams' caliber is a huge relief for the future of the depth chart. Williams is a member of the ESPN.com Top 150, and picked the Irish over Florida, Auburn, Clemson, and, yes, The Orgeron.


You're angered the Orgeron. Thankfully, you're big enough that you don't have to be in constant fear for your life, like I am.

Golden Tate has blazing speed and I hope CW turns him into a world class Corner Back. We need help there as much as we do at DT. These two guys help fill some big needs.

eh, pretty sure we'll be fine at cornerback (walls, mcneil, gray and lambert). Wouldn't hurt to have the Golden child there, but def not necessary. I would rather see the lad in maybe a shifting motion from back to flanker.
