After yesterday’s performance, many may have felt we blew our chance with the recruits on campus, but a day later Notre Dame has picked up a HUGE commitment from Mike Floyd according to Mike Frank of Irish Eyes.
“Yeah, I committed this weekend,” Michael Floyd said as we spoke to him as he was boarding his plane home from his official visit to Notre Dame this weekend.
Floyd was one of the most pivotal recruits remaining on the board for the Irish because he is a difference making wide receiver – something the Irish are disparately in need of. Check out his latest Rivals highlight video to get an idea of just how good of a receiver he is.
Hats off to Weis and staff for pulling in Floyd after yesterday’s performance because this was really a must get for Notre Dame to get back to where we want to be. And to recap, the staff hauled in this commitment despite the following recent incidents:
- Matt Carufel who went to the same high school as Floyd transfers and isn’t exactly complimentary towards Notre Dame on the way out.
- Notre Dame gets beat 38-0 at the hands of USC while Floyd is on his official visit.
- Notre Dame currently sits at 1-7 with a struggling (to say the least) offense.
When you consider that Floyd still committed to Notre Dame despite all of that, you also have to give him credit for picking the Irish despite our recent struggles. Commitments like this one from Floyd are also exactly what we need to get back on top. This last quote from the IE article also gives you a clue that this kid’s head is definitely screwed on straight.
“It feels real good knowing that I have a school now,” he said. “I’m going to help them bring this back and I’m going to get a great degree.”
Welcome aboard Mr. Floyd, we are more than glad to have you.
