First Word: Notre Dame Recruiting Weekend

All of the recruits that were expected in Ann Arbor made their way there (full list at bottom of this post). The football team certainly put on the best show they could and it would have been hard not to enjoy yourself in Ann Arbor this weekend.

Of course the first question at hand is how did the visits go, especially for the #1 recruits on Michigan’s board, Casey Prather and Trey Zeigler, both of whom were on official visits this weekend. There hasn’t been much reaction posted yet, but here is one quick and vanilla quote from Prather thanks to Phil Kornblut from Palmetto Sports:

Prather said he enjoyed the Michigan visit. “I liked the campus and the people,” he said.

Prather likes to keep things close to the vest, after his visit to Clemson he said that Oliver Purnell and company “Made a good impression” but not much more. He certainly doesn’t appear to be tipping his hand in any direction. I expect we will hear more from Prather and Zeigler later today from recruiting websites.

In-homes and more official visits are up next. Kevin Stallings has already had his in-home while Billy Donovan is slated to visit this week before Prather officially visits Florida. Prather’s final scheduled official is to Vanderbilt on October 3rd before he makes a decision.

Here is the list of visitors that Best of the Best Scouting posted on Sunday. Most of the big time in-state prospects were there as well as several kids from Indiana as well:
