In the Movie Theater: Breaking Up Keon Keeley, Brenan Vernon and Drayk Bowen

Notre Dame already has one of the best recruiting classes in the country in 2023, and the group is powered by an elite group of seven top players. On our latest show, we break down these three engagements and step into the theater to show off their talent, discuss their strengths, and talk about their place at Notre Dame.

Land Defensive End Keon Keeleydefensive side Brenan Vernon and linebacker Drayk Bowen gives Notre Dame a terrific base to build the class around. In order to build an elite defense, you need seven elite players, and that’s what Notre Dame has with this trio.

We start the breakdown with a look at Keeley. During this part of the show, we discuss his recruiting ranking, his strengths as a player, and the impact his commitment has had on the Notre Dame class. We then dive into the movie theater to show off Keeley’s special skills.

Next, we dive into Vernon and start by discussing the odd range of rankings he currently has. We talk about his fit with Keeley, his strengths as a player and his fit into the Irish defense before diving into the film.

The breakdown ends with a look at Bowen, who is a two-sport (baseball) star. We talk about his ranking, his strengths as a player and his place in the Irish defense. Then we reminisce about the movie and show what makes Bowen such an impactful pickup for the Irish.

We answer some questions from listeners and talk about Notre Dame’s reputation developing defensive linemen, and what Keeley and Isaiah Foskey could do for that reputation before they end the show.
