Re: Josh Barajas 


That was fast. I found his original commitment surprising as well and figured the Irish would eventually win him over, just not this quickly.

Have anything to do Hilliard's intentions? Both are good enough you would think the Irish would take both, but don't recall if these guys are projected at the same lb spot or not and didn't want to sit in a log jam.

Re: Josh Barajas 


With Elstons's tweet this week - What an incredible day in Ohio and Indiana today in recruiting! you had to think some good news was coming.

Hopefully enough room for Barajas, Hilliard, Bilal and a Gustin\Peat pass rusher type.

Where is he projected?  scout has him as an Outside linebacker and 24/7 has him on the inside.

I'd guess inside. He's smaller than he's listed.

I hadn't either, but there is a site out there that tends to have quite a bit of premium info. How these guys get away with it...I'll never understand.

Nonetheless, psyched for his commitment and think he will do HUGE things for ND and it's recruiting of Indiana this year.

The Barajas article isn't premium, but I know what you're talking about.

Re: Josh Barajas 


I guess as for me I view this stuff differently, say I have a web site covering cfb recruiting and I am out talking to kids and finding out info and I write articles on my site or even link tweets, photos and stuff from say instagram, If I am giving credit and not copying stuff as my own or buying subscriptions at other sites and using paid info, then I have a right as does scout or any other site to post whatever I have written as free content.

Kind of like when BK has a press conference you can watch for free, you can hear all the questions and comments, one site might post it as paid content and another as free content.

I don't think Tru is talking about a recruiting website like Scout, Rivals, or 24/7. I believe he's referring to a site that compiles premium information from those sites and releases it for free almost instantaneously. 

I understand that there people who think this type of thing is just fine, but if there weren't people paying for the information, then the information wouldn't exist.

The way social media is these days, I think the days of paid subscriptions to services is on it's way out. But even ESPN still has an Insider page that includes college football recruiting, so it's still a nice business for these services.

kk, I only come here none of those other sites, but yeah, taking premium info and sharing it is wrong.

Hopefully NBC can sign some old-timey baseball announcers to do ND football.

How delightful would it be to hear "Tackle by BEAR-a-JASS"?

Ohio State is in a good spot for Hilliard, this flip personally made me excited.  Maybe it can get some of the Paternophiles off our recruiting free board.  Been hearing a lot from the east lately how Franklin is taking Meyer to the woodshed in recruiting. biggrin

Re: Josh Barajas 


It was always shocking he committed their in the first place. 

Now lets have ND land Hilliard, and hopefully Bidal. Wrap up the LB recruiting.

Re: Josh Barajas 


See I think there would still be someone out there finding out this info and interviewing kids.  They would just try to make money off of It In a different way.  For example there Is a University of Kentucky fan site that Is 100% free.  The creators goal was to provide premium information to the fans for free.  At first It started slow but he and a couple of his friends drudged along keeping their everyday jobs.  Eventually they built up a relationship with the program and media outlets and It has taken off like crazy In the last 3 years.  The creator, Matt Jones, even quit his everyday job (lawyer) to devote his career to It and a radio show that was eventually created.  CBS Sports and other media stations have even asked him to write articles for them.  They have even had kids who asked to make their commitment on his radio show.   All their revenue Is generated by sponsorship and advertising.  It really Is quite impressive.   Or It just may be to me because I was a fan of the site In Its earliest days and got to see It grow and expand myself.  

So you see there are already people out there who dont charge a subscription and still find a way to make money from recruiting information.
