NIL and Recruiting Heat Wave with Mike Singer (Ep. 30)

By Tyler Wojciak | July 09

We sat down with friend of the program and recurring guest Mike Singer of Blue and Gold Illustrated to talk all things NIL and Notre Dame recruiting. We project the impact of the Supreme Court’s ruling (Spoiler: None of us have any idea what’s going to happen) and debate which Irish players over the last 25 years would have been the greatest beneficiary of the new rules. Marcus Freeman is a dawg on the recruiting trail, and Mike sheds a little light on how he has been so successful. Ohio State fans, you may want to sit this one out. We push back against the notion that the offensive side of the ball doesn’t match the defensive side in the 2022 class, and take a look at other players the Irish are still in the hunt for. Finally, we conclude with a tribute to the late Lou Somogyi of Blue and Gold, and give details on how you can donate to his scholarship.
