The Ides Of Commitments

Robert Blanton is Irish. The 6'1" 175 pound, 4 star prospect chose the Irish over Virginia Tech and...Skunkbear University. Lllloyd Carr- suck on that! Some have Blanton listed as free safety, but the Irish like him at cornerback. There are a lot of similarities between Robert and a former Irish player... Bobby Taylor. The size and speed this kid possesses is fantastic, but his hip movement and foot speed are what sets him apart as a CB as opposed to a FS.

This is the 15th Notre Dame commit for the 2008 incoming class. Our 15th commit last year was actually this year when Matt Romine chose ND at the Army AA Game. This class is filling up in a heartbeat. The Irish do have needs at WR, OL, and LB still to fill, but with every commit it adds pressure to those sitting on the fence to follow suit.
