While I’m in the spirit of posting highlights of 2010 wide receiver prospects, here’s one of Corey Cooper. Scout lists Cooper at 6’2″, 195 lbs with 4.4 speed – sounds like a wide receiver with the perfect combo of size and speed.
And here’s another video of Kyle Prater.
Kyle Prater was recently the recipient of a Notre Dame scholarship offer. Here’s some highlights of him from YouTube.
David Bruton had a pretty good week of practice at the Senior Bowl this week and may have helped out his draft stock some. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Bruton has impressed scouts with his playmaking ability and ball-hawking skills. He is seemingly always around the ball, showing very good instincts and explosion at the point of [...]
ESPN’s Graham Watson reported this week that junior to be corner back Gary Gray plans on re-enrolling at Notre Dame for the summer term. According to the family member, Gray is not enrolled this semester because of academic issues. Those issues forced Gray to miss the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, but the family member said Gray [...]
While the University has yet to make an official announcement, several sources have indicated that former Notre Dame and San Francisco 49ers great Bryant Young will very likely be joining the Notre Dame coaching staff as a defensive graduate assistant. Another former Irish great could be joining him on the opposite side of the line [...]
As soon as Jon Gruden was fired by the Buccaneers on Friday, rumors linking him to Notre Dame after Signing Day began to popup. Since the rumors were not going away and were actually picking up steam, Notre Dame responded to Blue and Gold Illustrated on the matter. “It’s ridiculous that this rumor has even [...]
When Mike Haywood was hired by Charlie Weis four years ago, he brought with him the reputation of being a good recruiter with ties in Texas based on his work with the Longhorns. In practice however, Haywood was not much more than an average recruiter at Notre Dame. Will his replacement, Tony Alford, fare much [...]
Since it seems like some here weren’t too thrilled with the Verducci hire based on the comments to the posts about his hiring, here are some quotes from Hayden Fry about Verducci from Saturday’s South Bend Tribune. “I’m not familiar with Charlie’s philosophy,” Fry said, “But Frank will do anything that the head coach tells [...]
Here’s what Notre Dame’s new running backs coach Tony Alford had to say about joining the Irish staff. “Notre Dame is the epitome of college football,” Alford said. “To join a place with the tradition and history of Notre Dame is very exciting and I’m grateful to Coach Weis for extending me this tremendous opportunity.

Another one of the vacant coaching positions on the Irish staff was filled on Monday when the University announced that Louisville running back coach Tony Alford would be joining the Irish staff in the same capacity. Here’s what Weis had to say of hiring Alford via the official release announcing the hire. “I’m very happy [...]
Notre Dame was without the services of Darrin Walls last year while the senior to be was not enrolled in school, but that won’t be the case in 2009. Walls was enrolled at Notre Dame once again this week as Notre Dame started the semester Monday. Losing Walls was a major blow in 2008 even [...]
Just yesterday the SBT had a quote from Tom Lemming about John Latina being Notre Dame’s best recruiter amongst the assistant coaches this year so his departure will obviously bring some about some questions about the potential impact. After doing some preliminary research on Verducci though it seems as though recruiting won’t be an issue [...]
The first new assistant coach for the 2009 season has been named by Charlie Weis at a position that technically wasn’t even announced that it was open until today. Frank Verducci, who spent the past two seasons as the offensive line coach for the Cleveland Browns, was named the new offensive line coach for the [...]
