clausen seems like he's the better prospect, if anything his pedigree breaks the tie

Out of the two i say McKnight because he excelled against better competition this year. He was amazing in the Hoover game.

I'm not sold on Clausen. Probably will have to adjust to the speed of the game before he can become the prospect we think he'll be. Let's see how good Charlie Weis is as a guru.

As am I, but Mcknight didn't get my vote.

And Everson Griffen is pretty raw as a player, at this point he relies to heavily on speed and strength over technique. Can't wait to see him develop in Cardinal and Gold though! :D

yeah they were lousy, but we're finally getting into charlie weis' recruiting class. Before when he took over he was playing the cards that were dealt to him by tyrone willingham. Now he's got hes finally got his own players to work with.

I dont think they'll be beating usc anytime soon but i also dont think they'll be roadkill either.

The media doesn't lie, last person to receive so much attention out of high school? lebron james, and look how that turned out. Plus we dont know what either mcknight or clausen can do at the college level just yet.

Also look at how both players fit in each system.

Clausen is perfect for Notre Dame's/Charlie Weis's offense.

And you know USC is going to line up JM all over the field ala Reggie Bush. Wouldn't doubt seeing him used alot in the slot like Reggie was used in New Orleans this year, considering USC signed the Saints Passing coach to the same position this offseason.

Mcknight, in my opinion, but I haven't really seen Clausen.

When McKnight and John Curtis played Hoover, he really torched us.

well i cant fairly judge him until i watch him at the college level but he just doesnt seem as good as the hype from watching him in videos...im not sure how difficult his competition is but he just doesnt strike me as being so special to deserve all the attention he has been getting. he looks good but i dont know that he is the next best thing to happen to college football. i have a feeling there will be lower ranked QBs recruited that will out perform him when he starts

now i may be late, but either way thats good info to me, hadnt heard who they signed, and i think its interesting they went after the #1 offense this year who uses bush, and spreads the field....if thats the case mcknight should be beastly especially with all the talent on the field

Well besides Noel Devine, I think Terrance Toliver will be this year's best offensive recruit. Out of those two though, McKnight.
