First Clausen, then Crist

Last year, University of Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis landed Jimmy Clausen, the number-one ranked prep QB from Oaks Christian High (Westlake Village). This year, as Clausen prepares for his freshman season, Weis has landed yet another highly-touted SoCal QB from under Pete Carroll's nose: Dayne Crist, from Notre Dame High (Sherman Oaks Canoga Park*), who signed with the Irish in the spring. Amid reports that Clausen is still recovering his arm strength after off-season surgery, ESPN's Bruce Feldman catches up with Crist about his decision to bypass USC for Notre Dame.

Of course, Carroll's recruiting record remains unparalleled; after all, he did land the three top-ranked high schoolers last season as well as another highly-ranked local QB: Aaron Corp from Lutheran High (Orange).

*My bad.
