08:44 AM ET 02.08 | Moving on. A day after finalizing a top-five recruiting class, Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly and his staff continue -- not begin, continue -- the quest for a follow-up group. Already, Notre Dame has received four commitments to its recruiting class of 2014, and Kelly identified the trenches -- the offensive and defensive lines -- as areas of emphasis. "I think the O-line and D-line will be an area that we'll continue to work toward," Kelly said Wednesday. "And then I think you look at who your guys are in '13 to start to match your depth needs." One of those additional needs could be at wide receiver, specifically a game-changer in the Jeff Samardzija or Michael Floyd mold.

Methinks every CFB program is already targeting the class of 2014. It's an ongoing process.

We'll know CFB's off the deep end when a futures market develops for the yet conceived offspring of certain parents-to-be.

it's bs articles like this that make ND so hated. Obviously ND are the only team that had previously worked on 2014 commits, right? They're the only ones with 2014 commits, obviously.

Anyways, whatever, ridiculous media aside, Go Irish.

Even Sparty has three 2014 committs, two of them four stars.

Hey, why so skeptical?

It IS news what over-ranked recruiting class that gets to lose to Alabama by 31 points in the 2017 MNCG!

Inquiring minds want to know

LOL! Hiya WPS. No worries. The Rebel Alliance will eventually prevail over the Evil Empire. Just might take a few decades longer than expected.

Hey, haven't posted on a public thread in a couple of weeks, so I thought I would start the morning trolling and see if the fish were biting.

Alabama already has Bo Scarborough prjected by some to be a 5 star. Working on Racean Thomas, might be a 5 star. Working on Marlon Humphrey, projected to be a 5 star and a legacy (Bobby Humphrey, who played for Bama in the 80s is his dad). I've been told by someone that knows the family, that Marlon is expected to go to Alabama.

I remember Bobby. He played well against the Vols. [grumble, grumble]

2014 commitments already? I'm still not done ignoring the hype over 2013 signings.

Ignorant hometown newspaper story, probably by a not very experienced intern.
Every coaching staff is focused on 2014, and '15, recruits. It's the dance of survival in CFB.
