Historically we've had little success for several reasons

Lots of thise kids are from the South and tend to stay there. Kids from the Pacific region including Polynesians usually prefer the West Coast. We do get an occasional Louis Nix or Myron Taglovailoa-Amosa.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of talented 300+ pound DL in the upper Midwest or Eastern US. New Jersey has a few but they mostly end up at Penn State, Michigan or even the SEC if they are really good.

I'm sure Freeman will try harder than Kelly but it won't be easy. There is one really good prospect in the 2024 cycle named Justin Scott. ND is on him but we'll see where he ends up.
