Daniel Smith! Class of 2010 fools! Committed to the Irish today, whooooop!
But didn’t he like only have offers from IU, Purdue and Central Michigan?
Yes. He also has 4 stars and is projected to be in the Rivals 100 and he’s prototypical at 6’4″, 180lbs and has crazy stats despite having no real QB to speak of. And he looooove ND, he’s a great student…
So he must not be any good! I mean, Central Michigan….
And this is where I end the conversation by slapping my conversation partner upside the head. If you’re that moronic, I cannot continue to discuss this topic with you. I just cannot.
Daniel Smith is a great pickup for the Irish. Just because other teams outside of the midwest do not yet have him on their radar, doesn’t mean he won’t be, and it certainly doesn’t diminish his quality. Do you think ND has offered every recruit that every other top tier school in the country has offered? Does that diminish their luster to you? No, you still want to go get them? Then SHUT YOUR HOLE with this kind of lame logic. I know this is a vocal and ignorant minority, but that minority deserves to be called out. I am fired up about Daniel Smith’s coming on board, especially on the heels of Senor Lombard’s commitment a few weeks back. The only thing I can really ding Daniel on is the name, which isn’t his fault. I mean, when you have names like Jamoris Slaughter and Golden Tate around you, Daniel Smith just falls flat. But you can only blame the parents here – Daniel had no choice in the matter. Sad.
