2015 five-star LB Justin Hilliard will decide July 2nd at his high school, per his twitter.

It's a Notre Dame - Ohio State battle for the Cincinnati native. Birm, John and I all have him crystal balled to the Buckeyes at the moment.

Hoke looks like he's not sure he should have just trusted that fart...

Looks like Kelly is smelling it.

Ferentz definitely smells it, he ain't happy about it!

Kelly is catching a wiff and isn't sure if it's Ferentz or Hoke at this point...

Saban doesn't smell anything but knows Hoke shat himself is and having a good chuckle about it...

Coach Meyer is worried the wind will shift and suddenly he will be downwind from the toxic mess in Hokes drawers...

I know it's supposedly a ND-OSU battle but I don't like the fact that Saban is the only one smiling in his picture.

Gotta like our chances here.

Ahh Saturday's picture

Jordan, Will Hilliard be getting some in-home visits from coaches before his decision date?

Jordan Wagner's picture

That would be against the NCAA rules. There are only certain times you can have in-home visits. Hilliard has everything he needs to decide. 

Hayze's picture

And I believe he already knows.

In fact, I think he's known in his gut for a while, just wanted these last few visits to make 100% sure.

So yes, Saban and Hoke will be making visits.

Kid was impressed more with ND's academics but was also impressed with Ohio State's. I think the fact that he bonded with Ohio State players the best wins out in the end. Buckeye imo.

Will it be streamed?

Jordan Wagner's picture

That's something we probably won't find out for another week or so. John might be there for 11W to cover the announcement.

After his weekend visits I was hoping for a decision sooner. This hot streak plays with my patience

Just read on ND 247 board, that two of their posters read on another ND site that coaches have been informed and Hilliard will be headed to Ohio State.

Now I can say that I read on an Ohio State site that somebody read on an ND site that somebody read on another ND site that Hilliard is committing to Ohio State.

Woah

On a sidenote, I don't like that whichever ND writer is was leaked Hilliard's decision. I hope it doesn't go viral on twitter tonight because the kid deserves his moment. It's also a classy move for him to inform each coach of his decision the night before he announces it.

Hayze's picture

Agreed here.

Obviously I'm glad to get the news and if it was a silent commit like two months ago I could see it but it's the night before his announcement. 12 hours.

Justin has approached his whole recruitment with class. We're lucky to be getting him.

UrbanCulture's picture

well yeah 305 buck, but u spread his decision. 

Thanks for the info!

ab1993's picture

Not to be pessimistic, but did a writer actually leak it? Or are they just rumors?

305Buck's picture

It was a ND writer for a site, not sure which site as the posters didn't give the name.

Sour grapes on their part whoever it was. I havent seen what you are talking about linked but I mentioned last night that we would know his exact destination tonight because of this sort of situation. Hilliard is one kid that has so much talent there is no way to say he was overrated or he didnt want to compete or he was scared of our depth chart. ND and their whole fanbase wanted this kid bad and even though he is from Ohio he also attended a private catholic Cincinnati school so I will consider this a steal for Meyer and staff. If we can do this on a consistent basis we will be in great shape in Ohio going forward. The best football players down here in the Cincy area play in the Greater Catholic League and are recruited by these schools. They mostly also dream of playing at Notre Dame also,not sure on a percentage but if you polled the kids and their parents ND would be a 'it" in a walk off.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.
