How about all the new coaches in Florida 8? Weren’t we just having this conversation about Florida coaches a year ago?

LSU offered early and accepted his commitment before schools such as Florida and Alabama each made overtures in the spring. Interestingly enough, Jenkins was sidelined with a hand injury for much of that time. Texas and TCU were also showing interest. Despite some new, notable offers, Jenkins remained solid to the Tigers as defensive backs coach Corey Raymond and newly minted defensive line coach Dennis Johnson continued to court him.
Jenkins battled hand and leg injuries dating back to the spring and will need time to get healthy before suiting up for the Tigers. He is more geared as a defensive end but gives Johnson and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda some versatility with his size and quickness off the ball. Jenkins makes his mark getting after the quarterback, and when healthy, did so very effectively for Plaquemine.

Te’o was not on the injury report, so this appears to be a healthy scratch. The linebacker saw his playing time cut last week, but it is still something of a surprise. Beat writer Nick Underhill anticipates Te’o starting in the Saints’ base defense, then leaving the field on passing downs.

The overall 27 player class features 14 4-star recruits. There has to be a strong commitment to the culture here at Notre Dame and their workload academically. It’s not just about the football things. Todd Lyght did an incredible job of staying with this process with Noah. And again, I think what we know about his football ability, he was one of the best players at the All-Star Game, has got a confidence about him at that corner position.
He’s a natural corner, and just gives us great flexibility and depth at that position that we’ve been lacking for so long here. I think what stood out for us is his football intelligence, the way he played the game. And again, comes to us with a great background in terms of coming from a school like St. He’s prepared for the academics here at Notre Dame. Patterson is considered the 25th best offensive tackle in the class. Great fit for us, really solid student that fits here at Notre Dame.
