If choosing amongst ND, UCLA and Alabama and living in No Cal no matter what school you select you are probably a plane ride away from home. If the kid had Cal or Stanford on his list I'd say distance is an issue but they aren't.
Listen, if you need to go to an airport to go somewhere a 1 hr flight is not much difference from a 4 hr flight. Maybe this is a rationalization but to me distance is not a factor AT ALL with this young man.
Now let's reel him in!
Mama V loved Notre Dame.Bang Bang and a Mob 13 to all.
Completely agree. He has also stated that distance is not a factor in his commitment, so why do people use it as an argument for UCLA?
I'm going to be a little surprised/disappointed if he's not Irish tomorrow night.
My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
Hopefully it is not just wishful thinking on my part but I see him being Irish. He will be surrounded by elite talent in this years class with a much better shot of playing early.
It's a 6 1/2 hr. drive to LA from Auburn, CA. To fly to South Bend, they'd have to drive to Sacramento and make at least one stop to get to South Bend. You can pack four or more people in a car for the same cost. You can't do that on a plane. In the first instance you wind up in Westwood, in the second, it's South Bend. Should this be the determining factor? Well, we'd like to think not, but then we'd make the same argument for Jaylon Smith.
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....

I don't know how often UCLA is on national TV. ND - pretty often. But with cable and Internet and all, maybe not as to keep up with games as it used to be.

Well, if they get these 2 ex-USC commits, and add that to their current class, they figure to be on TV more often in a year or two. This past season was a good one for UCLA and winning begets winning in recruiting as well as on the field.
