Who does Tuitt compare to? I've been slowly starting to look at some ND highlights and it is starting to become apparent that Te'o gets all the media attention and is the heart of the defense, but Tuitt looks to be the second most important defensive player for the irish. Can anyone compare him to any players Bama has faced this season?

Can't really think of anyone UA has played that would be similar. You're right though, he's the top pure talent on that defense and the second best defensive end in CFB after Clowney. Style and size-wise I guess I'd compare him to maybe a Richard Seymour. I've watched some stuff on their NT Louis Nix as well and he's really the one who makes that defense go. Those guys definitely make Te'o's job much easier.

I've definitely been impressed with Nix in the highlights. The ND front really gives Te'o the freedom to roam and make plays. The UA o-line vs. the ND d-line is going to be an incredible match up.
Yeah that's the matchup of the game and should tell the story IMO.
You get out of it what you put into it!
Both are from the Southeast.
Truitt reminds me of Marcus Spears (former LSU DL/current Dallas Cowboys).
Just looking over the Notre Dame roster, if Aaron Lynch had not transferred their defense would have 4 likely top 10 picks in the front 7 and all 3 starting DLineman as likely top 10 picks.
Wonder if Lynch is kicking himself now for transferring to South Florida. Never know though as it is possible his departure somehow motivated the remaining guys to improve. Never know.
