Film Review: Eilar Hardy

New four-star safety commit Eilar Hardy will probably play cornerback at Notre Dame, according to the South Bend Tribune. Hardy lined up at corner occasionally in sophomore clips but played safety, usually in the box, in his junior highlights from Scouting Ohio. He is more of a sure tackler than a big hitter, and he needs to add muscle to his frame. His strength is run support as he disrupted the line of scrimmage and flourished in the open-field tackling situations in which many current ND defenders have failed.

Hardy succeeded in the limited film in which he had pass coverage responsibilities. While safety is a huge concern for the 2010 season, ND will also need cornerbacks by the time he arrives. Hardy fits the new staff’s demand for tall corners, but he must spend time on the Longo Plan to help get his weight up to par. His excellent tackling fundamentals, which would have been the envy of many ND linebackers a year ago, increase his chance of playing early at either corner or free safety.
