    If true he's supposed to be an amazing recruiter

    Great hire...

    Alford was also Notre Dame's recruiting coordinator...

    Urban gets who he wants...

    Love the hire...

    He's recruited some nice talent to ND... He's the one who recruited Davinte Neal there, even though he didn't end up staying.

    Some others he recruited to ND:

    Tai-ler Jones
    Louis Nix
    George Atkinson
    Everette Golson
    Aaron Lynch
    Greg Bryant
    Mike Heuerman

    He has a strong presence in the southeast as well and Arizona and Colorado.

    This is a home run hire IMO...

    I think Alford's first big splash will be flipping Nate Craig from Auburn...

    A lot of people consider this an upgrade. I will take a wait and see approach before I say that but he is already a great recruiter and working with Urban Meyer will make him even better.

    I really like the body of work from Drayton, on the field especially. What he did with Hyde and Zeke was amazing. Here's to hoping Alford can keep the train rolling and have this Running Back U by the time Kareem Walker leaves.

    These are quotes from ND fans regarding Alford coming to OSU. We got us another top tier coach & recruiter.
