never going to get a quality candidate
Does Bon Jovi have a younger brother who can fill in the gap. Maybe dad can write a check to the university and play a show at the stadium to make up for the loss of Hicks.
I can envision the opener against Temple with a 23-14 loss and post game performance by the Dancing Grannies and Bon Jovi with musical guest Richie Sambora just out of rehab for the seventh time.
The amazing storyline is that we still have our head coach on board. Can you say dead man walking.
Shitbrick should be tried for treason.
Werner, Beal, Adebo, Hicks, Pouncey, & Jeter.
And without looking it up, it's the most I can remember since we started covering recruiting here in 1997.
Notre Dame Parts Ways With 2017 DB Elijah Hicks

(Committed to Cal today)
Blue & Gold has confirmed that La Mirada (Calif.) High 2017 four-star athlete Elijah Hicks is no longer part of the Notre Dame class.
Hicks took a visit to Michigan and California after giving a verbal commitment to Notre Dame. With Hicks looking around, Notre Dame decided to move on and focus on other players. The plan now for Hicks is to sign with Cal and become an early enrollee.
Hicks is the second projected defensive back to exit the class with Mansfield (Texas) High four-star cornerback Paulson Adebo, who de-committed yesterday.

With Hicks and Adebo no longer in the class, Notre Dame is now without a cornerback commit in the class. Its only defensive back recruit is Naperville (Ill.) Neuqua Valley four-star athlete Isaiah Robertson, who projects as a safety.
Notre Dame has been in hot pursuit of other cornerbacks since defensive coordinator Mike Elko was formally announced. Ocala (Fla.) Forest three-star cornerback O.J. Tucker, Windsor (Conn.) two-star cornerback Jason Pinnock, League City (Texas) Clear Creek three-star cornerback Noah Daniels (a TCU commit) and Fort Smith (Ark.) Northside three-star corner Tre Norwood (a Louisville commit) have all been contacted by the Notre Dame staff in recent days.
The loss of Hicks now leaves the Irish with 15 commitments remaining in the class, and Hicks becomes the sixth recruit to exit the class.
It is a vague report, but it does make it sound as though Notre Dame made the decision.
Elko, Lyght, Elston, and Lea have their work cut out for them over the next three weeks.
In the secondary, Weddington is a 4-star prospect for instance.
A bunch of new offers have gone out at both DE and DT and Notre Dame hasn't given up on some guys who committed elsewhere.
At WR there are still a lot of names on the board.
Make no mistake, as things stand right now it doesn't look great, but a lot can change in three weeks and with all of the new coaches there are some previously built relationships that can be leveraged here.
