The University of Notre Dame is getting creative with their recruiting. First they sent certain recruits an initial letter that lets them know they’ve received the “Pot of Gold,” which will come via 477 pieces of mail.
The letter explains that “477 represents the number of total NFL draft picks we’ve had here at ND. In each envelope there’s a custom graphic with the name and draft pick # of each and every draftee. Your future is bright – just like the other 477 men before you. Come continue the legacy…. Become college football royalty.”
Linebacker recruit Nyles Morgan of Crete, Illinois posted a picture of the letter.

Tight end recruit Dalton Schultz from Jordan, Utah posted a video to YouTube. Schultz seems more excited about it than Morgan. It certainly is a creative way to get a recruit’s attention. Based on the Tweet and Schultz’s video it is having the desired effect.
