Jim Miesle of Notre Dame Fighting Irish blog One Foot Down recently broke down the latest recruiting news out of South Bend. The football recruiting expert identified the team's needs and which players will fill those needs. Most notably, the team appears to have a commitment from a particularly special quarterback:
