Irish Recruiting outlook with Carrol gone

With Pete Carrol leaving USC; Brian Kelly should have for now SC commit Kyle Prater on speed dial. Kyle Prater was suppose to go to class at USC today but with Petey gone Kyle is at home in Hillside Illinois weighing his options with his family. Kyle has been to Notre Dame a number of times and made his official visit to Notre Dame for the UCONN game. Just because the Irish lost on senior day to a marginal opponenet doesnt mean Prater won't come to South Bend. First off different coach, second off Manti Te'o was at the Syracuse game last year and he couldnt stay outside in the cold for the whole game. Also if the Irish can get Kyle's good friend/teammate Corey Cooper then maybe that could push Kyle over the ledge to South Bend.

Seantrel Henderson spoke before the Army All-American game on Saturday and said Carrol leaving will definitely effect his decision. Henderson is down to six schools Florida, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and USC. Miami appears to be the long shot while at the moment with Carrol gone the front runners appear to be Florida, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.

"The coaching and football are second to the education and situation Seantrel would be in. We know he's going to play, and get opportunities, and get as close as he can to a title..." - Seantrel Henderson's father

Again we see this. This is with most recruits where their parents love the education that Notre Dame brings. This was the same story with Manti Te'o last year. Coach Brian Kelly (I love saying that) could make a huge recruiting statement for years to come if he could pick up Prater or Henderson.
