I guess Kelly is the one that couldn't get his grades up and make a good enough score on his ACTs to get past admissions. That is apparently the reason Tee had to leave school. And yeah, losing Darby sucks but it happens to a lot of teams every year. It is hard to recruit for ND, especially when ND hasn't been very good in 20 years. I have a feeling Neal may have to play DB this season instead of slot. Kelly has done a great job with recruiting but unless he can move the warmer climate to South Bend and offer some perks that schools like USC, Florida, and TX can offer, it's always going to be an uphill battle. Nobody seems to remember what a great job he has done with some true studs in the last 3 years (Tuitt, Kiel, Neal, Jaylon Smith, Davaris Daniels). All anyone remembers are the ones that got away. And he closed the deal with Lynch but Lynch's heart was never in it. That's not on Kelly.
