A recruiting strength is ND's education. You are looking at it like a weakness. A player can get coached up anywhere they go. Alabama or LSU or USC arent the reason they get drafted. The kids ability is the reason. The coaches just help the process. You can get great coaching at a ton of schools. You can't get an elite education at a ton of schools. Why not go to ND, become better at your craft by receiving great coaching and be on your way to the NFL with an ND degree to fall back on when you are done at the NFL level?
