Weis to Get Wood?

The nation’s top ranked running back, Cierre Wood, is coming to South Bend this weekend on an UNofficial visit. Wood averaged more than 14 yards a carry last year and has offers from every big time program in the country and headlines a what has turned into a surprisingly strong lineup of recruits coming in for Saturday’s game. Including these , according to Mike Frank:

Cierre Wood
Craig Roh
Tyler Stockton
Anthony LaLota
EJ Banks
Jake Golic
Devonte Holloman
Jordan Barrett

Note, that Roh, LaLota, Barrett and Stockton are DLs and ILBs, our two weakest areas heading into 2008. Wood would be Notre Dame’s highest ranked running back recruit in recent memory. Here’s his Rivals highlight reel and a couple of youtubes of his performances.

    he is not coming in for his official. he can’t do that till next season. he is coming in for an unofficial, which is even better. It is on his dime. and his mom is coming. this is great that we are in his top 2.

    I like that he doesn’t showboat after a TD – he must have the grades or he wouldn’t be comming – he is number 1 for a reason, so he must be running all over everybody big or small – and lastly, I actually think comment #1 is funny and a nice slam on Southern Cal.

    That’s all that needs to be said. All of the so-called “dirty” recruiting that USC conducts can hide the fact that ND’s program is horrendous and heading in the wrong direction. But of course, it must be Ty’s fault, right?
