Charlie Weis was asked if he was concerned about any possible recruiting problems in the Chicago Public League after the departure of Demetrius Jones last week.
Corwin Brown is my answer to your question. I have one of the most renown people in the Chicago Public League. Anything that anyone wants to know, I have one of the greatest resources going – one of the most repected people ever to come out of the Chicago Publis League. I don’t think we’ll have any problems with the Chicago Public League.
The fact that Jones has been nothing but complimentary towards Notre Dame this week should also bode well for Notre Dame in the CPL in terms of recruiting.
“I really am going to miss Notre Dame”
“I’m not sorry I went to Notre Dame in the first place,” Jones told The Tribune via cell phone Sunday. “I learned a lot of lessons about life there. It made me a better person in a lot of ways.”
“I want Notre Dame to do well, and I realize what I’m walking away from,” Jones said.
All of the above quotes are from Jones in Monday’s SBT.
Combine those kind of quotes along with Corwin Brown’s positive influence in the CPL and I think Weis is right that the Irish will do just fine recruiting there moving forward.
