Irish Add Some Defensive Help

Anyone who watched the Irish last year noticed that the Notre Dame pass defense was PATHETIC (116th in the nation). Needless to say, Notre Dame needs some DB help ASAP. Notre Dame finally got some help today when CB Raeshon McNeil verbally committed to the Irish. McNeil has great size (6'0") and speed (4.4-40), and based on the way the Notre Dame's DBs played last year, will likely see immediate playing time. McNeil is the 12th player to commit to the Irish. Now Weis just needs to add another 4-5 DBs and I might actually feel optimistic that Notre Dame can stop the pass sometime in the near future.
