Irish sending 477-letter packages

By Matt Fortuna

Notre Dame made a splash with recruits this week when the Fighting Irish sent out packages filled with 477 letters, called "Pots of Gold," to recruits across the country.

ESPN 300 linebacker Nyles Morgan (Crete, Ill./Crete-Monee) was one of the recipients. The No. 65 prospect tweeted a picture, which explained why the package consisted of 477 letters.

The note says there is one letter for every NFL draft pick to have come out of Notre Dame.

Tennessee and a few other SEC schools have been known to ship out a large number of recruiting letters to prospects, creating an arms race to see who can send the most mail.
