Default Takacs is IRISH!

TE George Takacs made it official tonight, giving the Irish his verbal commitment.

Composite four star on 247. Top 250 on Rivals and Top 200 on ESPN. Offers from Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, UCLA, among others.

Saw on twitter that he plans to early enroll.

One thing is certain with this staff. We'll get at least two highly starred o-linemen and one good tightend.

Yes, a very impressive offer list.

nice pickup for ND, ND has never had problems building depth at TE.

I'd throw LBs in there too. Always seem to land 2-4 highly regarded LBs too.

I'd say QB has been pretty solid, minus missing on Hunter Johnson last year.

I mean in reality, under Kelly they have recruited very well offensively. And I think at least in the last few years LBs have been good as well. Secondary has been hit or miss. Interior DL has been hit or miss. Edge rushers has been very bad.

Thinking out loud here.

At first I thought did we really need another tight end. If we skipped this year maybe the top tight end next year would find us more appealing. Too much talent ahead of this kid for him to play any time soon.

But then I thought.

What if Mack leaves next year, that leaves weisher and the 2 freshmen. Not sure weisher is starting material.

Now my question becomes:

Do we take 2 tight ends this class?

I confuse myself sometimes.

You can't pass a kid like this imo. Also, being an Army All American he clearly should be rated higher.

Ruckert is still considering ND, he tweeted that specifically today. The staff HAS to remain in contact with TE recruits for the reasons you mention. If Mack leaves and Weishar leaves for whatever reason they absolutely need a second TE. Luckily, they can stick with a developing guy like Tremble throughout the year and once they have a better idea for next year pull the trigger. Right now there is only really room for 1 TE but this is fluid. Also, luckily, the staff has Boykin and Claypool that could play the flex TE if really needed. This offense requires 4 TE.

That's why it's difficult for me to get excited. Kmet and Wright are two of the best TE recruits in the country. There's already a lot of depth.

This is spot on and what many recruiting gurus have essentially stated. It's not the end of the world to miss on TE this year, but if a guy like Takacs wants in you take him. Everything I've come to read suggests they will take 2 if it's the right player. If Ruckert or Tremble want in it is my understanding that they won't say no.

The top tightend next year is from Oklahoma and his name is boomer, just sayin.

I think Mack and ESB are going to be one hell of a combination this year, but I'd love to see them both come back and dominate in 2018.

It's crazy to think what Big said. This offense relies on 4 tight ends, yet every year the tight ends are non-existent.

This offense meaning Chip Long's offense. TEs are going to be used much more heavily as long as he is OC

Would love nothing better, but I won't hold my breath until I see how much autonomy Long has. Kelly has not been a friend to the TE, that's not his style of offense. He wants to chuck it all over the field using 4-5 WR sets. Yes we have had some really good TE's under BK, Eifert in particular was very effective but more often he lined up wide. It's no coincidence that the TE has been less emphasized since Eifert left. Mack is Eifertlike in that BK will line him up wide, like he did two years ago and probably will this season too.

I really wish we ran two TE sets and jumbo packages like Stanford did a few years ago, those were a great success. Punishing ground game and matchup nightmares with big quick TE's.
