08:16 AM ET 06.08 | Isaac Rochell returned to Twitter this week, and he came back with a lot to say. Nine hours [after reactivating his account,] Rochell had news he wanted to share with the world. "Glad to be Irish #irishmob13 #ndnation," Rochell tweeted, announcing the defensive end's commitment to the 2013 recruiting class. ... The 6-5, 260-pound Rochell, who will be a senior this fall at Eagle's Landing Christian Academy in McDonough, Ga., becomes the 14th commitment to the 2013 class. His pledge comes just days after Fort Wayne linebacker Jaylon Smith joined the group. Rochell becomes the second defensive end prospect in the class, joining 6-5, 240-pound Jacob Matuska. 247Sports.com ranks Rochell as the No. 7 strong-side defensive end.

As soon as the coaches show they can wring a meaningful amount of high-level play out of all these "high-end prospects", then there can be some Irish eyes smiling. Is it this year that it happens? Maybe so.


Until then, keep hoisting those beers, domers, it helps dull the pain. ;-)

Nah... wen I/others say print the T-Shirts...its in regards to be in regards to having the #1 recruiting class.. or in this case... Toughest schedule...So that 1 L carries into '12... can i claim the spring game victory?

LOL, yes you can claim the spring game victory!!! ND does have a rough schedule and we will see just how good they are this year. They play Mich, Mich State, Oklahoma, Stanford and USC. If they can beat 3 of those schools, then they could end up at 8-4.

Dude. If they beat three of those schools they end up 10-2...If we can sweep the mitten and beat a luckless Stanford at home, we'll go to the BCS. Sweeping the Mitten comes first though

I don't think that ND will go 10-2 this year. Yes they can beat Stanford at home but beating Oklahoma at Norman, Mich State at East Lansing and USC at the Coliseum will be a big challenge and then you have Michigan, which is always a tough game. Damn you guys have a tough schedule, but 10-2 is possible.

They have a tough schedule, but what about their OOC?

Oh.....never mind.... :)
