Notre Dame already has a Running Back for the 2014 class. Why would the Fighting Irish Coaching Staff offer another Running Back?

One thing is clear right off the battle. Vickers must be an elite player because he has elite offers. Rankings are in consistent but when a player has offers from Alabama, Clemson, Mississippi, Notre Dame and Mississippi it is usually a good sign that he is a solid player.

Vickers told both Scout.com and 247Sports.com that he was interested in the Irish. Presumably, he would play at the Running Back position. This signals that Notre Dame will be recruiting another Running Back

He rushed 1076 yards on 144 attempts and 11 touchdowns in Class 2A Football in Florida. His high school team, North Florida Christian, won the State Championship in 2012. In that game, Vickers ran for 102 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Vickers is extremely elusive. He also has great hands. He would be more of slasher like Theo Riddick. Vickers checks in at 6’0″ 205lbs.

Is Notre Dame still after Nathan Starks and others at Running Back as well? Or are they pursuing a different type of Running Back?
