Notre Dame Football's Secret Recruiting Weapon: Skylar Diggins

Skylar Diggins is the face of women’s basketball. NFL players admit to crushing on her. And now she’s being considered the recruiting secret weapon for the struggling Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Later that evening, Diggins tweeted: “Just met a couple ND recruits … young men were very polite haha.”

A follower then replied to Diggins asking if she knew if Notre Dame coaches used her name as a recruiting tool.

“I’ve done my fair share of recruiting,” Diggins responded.

Diggins will be a senior this fall, and Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly – who is in for a rough season, given the brutal schedule, the lingering QB questions and the loss of his best defensive player – will certainly need Diggins’ help to improve on a mediocre 2012 recruiting class (ranked 20th). A decent start might be to have Diggins tweet out some pro-Irish football tidbits. I’d start with the infectious fight song.

Notre Dame athletic department feed twitter feed: 38k followers.
Skylar Diggins twitter feed: 251k followers.

Next thing you know, Lil’ Wayne will hype the Irish and start listening to Don Criqui call Notre Dame games on the radio. Then, maybe the recruits will begin to shun the SEC* for the independent Irish.
