Troy Niklas Signing Day Video

The folks over at the Orange County Register followed Notre Dame signee Troy Niklas around on Signing Day and posted a great video giving some insight on why Niklas choose Notre Dame.

The OC Varsity Staff was with Troy when he signed his LOI, went to class, and then joined the Fox Sports West crew for an interview.

    In past years this kid would have been the key get on the defensive side of the ball. It’s a good sign when the LA Lineman of the year is looked at as a “nice addition” to the class.

    I am impressed by this class not only for the overall talent, but in almost all the interviews I’ve seen these guys have come off as smart, down-to-earth types that seem genuinely committed to making ND better. The highlight films on this group practically smack you in the face with their speed and skill. I for one can’t wait to see what happens after a year with the strength/conditioning staff coupled with coaching up their technique. It would be so nice to have an intimidating defense once again.

    Hats off to Kelly and his staff again for doing the hard work needed to pull a class like this.

    This kid looks Irish all the way. I am so giddy about this class. Does it have holes? Ya, for sure, but with the defense we just brought in and the cast that finished up the year we’re going to be in for a pretty good run here. Go Irish!!!!!
