Junior linebacker Clifton Garrett (Plainfield, Ill./Plainfield South) had never been on a college football visit before, and Notre Dame made him feel like he was already a member of the Fighting Irish.
“I had a great time,” Garrett said following his visit for the Michigan game.
Garrett joined the other recruits and received a look at the football complex and watched a highlight video of Notre Dame football. One of the best parts for him though was walking from the building to the stadium.
Doran Grant's play impresses recruits (espn insider)
Doran Grant had the better part of 105,019 fans applauding his game Saturday, but none more than a 5-foot-6, 130-pound high school senior sitting behind Ohio State’s bench.
Fransohn Bickley (Akron, Ohio/St. Vincent-St. Mary) was on hand in the unofficial/official visitor section to watch his former teammate do work for the Buckeyes in a 29-15 win over the University of Alabama-Birmingham and walked away smiling.
“I was impressed. I was there to watch Doran,” Bickley said. “I thought he did great. He needs to be a starter, but that’s my opinion. It was a slow start, but I was impressed as the game went on.”
