There's a reason Willingham's was gift-wrapped.

It's not terribly difficult to sell ND when it's playing well. Accordingly, Kelly's recruiting has just been okay. The Lynch/Tuitt class was huge and Day the next year was a formidable group. But since then the classes have been average for ND. Weis pulled in the No. 1 class after 3-9. I think he was a superior recruiter than Kelly. He just had a worse product to sell. If he had the 2012 defense he'd have signed better defensive talent after that season than Kelly has. We don't have pass rushers and our linebacker recruiting has not been good enough under Kelly to contend.
