Jalen Brown and the recruiting floodgates

Notre Dame went almost five weeks without a new public commit before Friday, when ND fans got three commitments in roughly five-hour increments on a single day. 6-0, 180 three-star corner Jalen Brown is the latest, according to ISD. Brown’s commitment slotted the monogram ND into three of the top four recruiting news stories on ESPN’s recruiting sidebar:

ESPN also has junior film showcasing Brown in mostly man-to-man coverage. Watch him deck the WR in the play that starts at the :50 mark. In other segments, Brown shows hops (1:37), closing speed (:32), and run support (2:22). His film makes it obvious that Brown’s coaches in a football-crazed state have done well with him. With a complete corner skill set and great size to boot, Brown is a candidate to play early even before factoring in our thin CB depth chart. This commitment gives Notre Dame flexibility to fulfill needs in the defensive backfield. Although Brown is similar to 2008 signee and DB utility man Jamoris Slaughter, the Irish should keep Brown at CB and instead use Eilar Hardy at safety, his most natural position. ND’s three current scholarship players from Texas are all starters, and Jalen Brown will continue this legacy in due time.
