The Notre Dame Football team has a chance to take advantage of Texas A&M’s loss after Jimbo Fisher’s firing by going after some of their commits.
It happens every year. In fact, it happens multiple times every year.
A college football coach gets fired, and the first thing everyone does is to see what players can be pillaged from his recruiting class or his roster.
There’s a reason that’s the practice. It usually works. Notre Dame Football fans would be mistaken if there were players plucked away from South Bend when Brian Kelly left for Baton Rouge.
What goes around, comes around, and now that Texas A&M is searching for a new head coach after the firing of Jimbo Fisher, there are a couple of players that the Fighting Irish coaches can go after in the SEC team’s 2024 recruiting class.
It turns out that the Aggies and the Irish weren’t going after that many players. It doesn’t appear that Marcus Freeman and his staff are going after Texas talent all that hard.
That’s not exactly a surprise, considering you’re talking about trying to draw kids from the Lone State state to Indiana. But there are two guys the teams faced off about and the Golden Domers should at least test the waters in the wake of the firing.
Players Notre Dame Football should try and swing after Jimbo Fisher’s firing
Should the Fighting Irish go after any of Texas A&M’s commits, there are two that they’ve at least had some contact with.
They may not have gotten a ton of headway on either, but perhaps they can convince them of the error of their ways.
Hornsby is a 3-star wide receiver out of Atco, New Jersey. That could be a boon for the Irish, considering it’s not like they’re trying to steal a player who was going to college in his home state.
While he’s not a Blue Chip prospect, he’s got the kind of build that Notre Dame would love to have at wide receiver, considering he stands 6-foot-2.
Smith is a bit more high profile and it’s pretty clear that Notre Dame would have loved to have gotten his commitment over Texas A&M. Al Golden was the lead recruiter for this consensus 4-star linebacker.
The catch here is that he is out of Jasper, Texas. So Notre Dame Football will be trying to get him away from the school he committed to as well as out of his home state.
