My God, that is just...so early to offer a recruit that young.
ND offers Cass Tech '15 QB Jayru Campbell
Guy hasn't even finished his first year of high school...
At least Brian Kelly will have gotten run out of South Bend by then (obviously, for trying to strangle Tommy Rees).
I'm not trying to sound creepy, but I think I may have met you (assuming your name is Nate and your avatar is you). Are you a manager at a local business in AA?
I'm not trying to sound creepy, but I think I may have met you (assuming your avatar is you). Are you a leader of a local sports team in AA?
I'm not trying to sound creepy, but I think we indeed have met (assuming your avatar is you). Did you catch a game-winning pass for said local sports team in AA in 1979?
if by "manager", you mean "minimum wage employee" and "AA" is Alcoholics Anonymous of Kalamazoo, then yes!
If not, then it's a pleasure to meet you!
For basketball that is way, way late to offer. Just ask Tom Crean -
Pffft. USC offered him when he was 8, just in case.
Hoke and Co. will offer soon and he will commit silently. No need for unwanted early press on this...he will be Blue.
"I think this won't be the first of the early offers he will be getting."
This should be an interesting recruitment and will be even more interesting if he commits to Michigan in the next few months
Shane Morris? He seems to have the intangibles if he can lead a team with as much talent as Cass Tech at such a young age. Hopefully we get him and he has as much passion as Shane does for the maize and blue. Not anywhere near a given, though.
It's cool. By the time he graduates the ND program will be in ruins - even worse than it is now.
Seriously? The dude's like 15; he's got a ton of growing to do.
From all I've heard, this kid sounds like he's going to be an amazing college quaterback. But still, I'm shocked that 2015 kids are getting offers from top programs. For god sakes...he's a freshman!
BK coached in the state, and he likely wants to tap into Cass' talent pool, so why not offer a guy that early and hope that worst case scenario, you buildup goodwill at the school. Great idea, IMO (although Kelly is still a redfaced crazyman).
any kid at this age IMO, flat out. Now a 15 year old kid will have three years of constant questions, interview requests, fans asking his school preferences, constant phone calls and texts from coaches, all of which he'll enjoy at first but then grow very tired of, not to mention the potential Pryor factor, where guys become arrogant asses from all the attention. Why disrupt a kids best years with that? Can't we (meaning everyone) wait until after their junior year to offer them, what's wrong with that?
He must be the number one recruit of that class if he is being offered this early.
I'm not sure if he will even be rated as a dual threat. He looks more like a pro-style QB who can also make plays with his feet if necessary.
FWIW, that QB kid - David Sills - is apparently still dominating.
If you can lead your team to a Div-1 State Championship by blowing out DCC as a 14 Year-Old.... that's saying something...
His measurables are impressive, but his ability to lead a team full of Div-1 upperclassmen says something else about his intangibles...
There is no telling who the coach of ND will be by 2015
Why hasn't Lane Kiffin gotten in on this kid yet? Slacking! Oh wait, it's probably because he's already had his '15 qb for 2 years already.
Does that really say 2015 or is there a typo in there somewhere????
Class of 2015 is correct.
15 years old and setting records.
Current starter unable to outrun the cops?
Recruit someone faster!
Meme generator types...Go!
i'd like to see something in a "Raising Arizona" chase sequence, if I have a say.
A thread about Norte dame and not a single Brian Kelly all purple faced gif yet.
Not a Gif, but it's something. "COME TO NOTRE DAME!!!!!!"
Although I'm a fan of this outburst, bill lynch's gum throw was epic.
The ballboy's death-stare on the left is one to be reckoned with.
Couldn't see Saban or Les honoring something like that.
I don’t see why any coach would. Yeah, it’d be rough for the kid, but why would they give someone an athletic scholarship if they aren’t an athlete?
there is an entirely new coaching staff at ND when he graduates from hs.
If they offered him a scholarship it would be to play football. In a perfect world, severe injuries would still allow a player to go to a school who had extended him an offer. However, since said offer (and commitment) isn't binding until signing day, and since scholarships are precious to a coaching staff, commits who suffer serious injuries may get their scholarship revoked. Sad, but thus is the recruiting game.
It would be completely up to ND to honor it. That's something they might do if he had already committed, not going to happen if he hadn't.
I wouldn't be very worried about ND in Jayru's recruitment.
Olds, dude. 15 year olds.
I Love this kids moxie for such a young guy. As people have already said leading Cass Tech to a state title as a 14 year old frosh is pretty damn impressive. That being said I don't see how he wouldn't go blue when he gets offered.
Kelly won't even be at ND by the time this kid graduates. The way Kelly acts and the thugs he has been recruiting, he won't last much longer.
Actually a lot of those "thugs" held michigan offers.
Likely not, he has decent legs, but it seems more probable that he'll fall into the "pocket pass who can scramble" category. He's reportedly 6'5" already (or predicted to ge that tall, I'm not sure which one). But either way, that screams pro-style QB to me.
I've only seen limited action but he looks to be more of a pocket passer. This kid's future is very bright and very blue.
It would be awesome to lock this guy down early and have him recruit for us ala Shane Morris for 2 recruiting cycles.
Okay why do schools recruit this early?
I've learned a lot about Mgoblog in this thread. Damn there are a lot kids posting here. Get off my lawn!
