In the 100 days leading up to signing day 2015, RecruitingNation will be looking back at our ESPN recruiting rankings from 2006 to the present and count down the best player of the past 10 years at each ranking position, No. 100 to No. 1.

Louis Nix III, No. 64 in 2010 class

Nix came out of Raines High in Jacksonville, Florida, as one of the most highly coveted defensive tackles in the country. Nix was committed to Miami (FL) for an entire year before Notre Dame eventually won out in December of 2009 over the Hurricanes due in large part to the work of Tony Alford, and the life experiences Notre Dame offered. Nix committed to the Fighting Irish when Notre dame was between head coaches following the firing of Charlie Weis. Nix was a member of a Notre Dame class that included Tai-Ler Jones and Prince Shembo.

Nix did not see action as a freshman in 2010, but moved into the starting lineup in 2011 starting 11 of 13 games. He recorded 45 tackles and 4.5 tackles for loss.

Hix backed up his impressive sophomore campaign with a strong junior season in 2012 tallying 50 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and two sacks in 11 starts.

The 2013 season would be his last in South Bend, and the beginning of knee issues that have continued to plague his career. Nix recorded 27 tackles in seven games as a senior. He started the first seven games before a knee injury sidelined him the last half of the season.

Following his career at Notre Dame, Nix was selected in the third round (No. 83-overall) in the 2014 NFL draft by the Houston Texans. He has missed his entire rookie season due to a trio of knee surgeries.

Honorable mention: Ryne Giddens, No. 64 in 2009 class. Giddens selected South Florida over Florida and North Carolina in January of 2009 out of Armwood High in Seffner, Florida. He played in 51 games for the Bulls over five seasons totaling 118 tackles, 32 tackles for loss and 19.5 sacks.
