Just received a call from the father of 2014 OL Reilly Gibbons, who informed me last week that his son was going to be in town on Thursday and Friday of this week for camp.
"We're not going to be able to make it this week," Shannon said. "I talked to Coach (Tony) Alford today and as it turns out there won't be a lot of campers this week and it won't be the right setting to have him evaluated.
"We already have a family trip planned when they'll have the camp later this month, so we won't be able to make it to that."
Gibbons and his family's trip is out to the West Coast, and they'll make stops at Stanford (junior day event), USC (one-day camp) and San Diego State (offered) while in California.
Alford said that they'll be back in to see him when they can start evaluating again when school starts and the coaching staff is looking forward to seeing film of him lined up as a tackle.
Despite not being able to get back to South Bend this week in hopes of landing an offer, the interest is still high in the Irish.
"Reilly definitely loves Notre Dame and they love him," Shannon shared. "When he was four-years old he got a Notre Dame jersey with his name on the back and the No. was 75. It's ironic because now that he's an offensive tackle that's the number he's wearing this season."
Gibbons, who now weights in at 253 pounds, is planning his next trip to South Bend and it may be during the "big" recruiting weekend .
"We want to come back out there for the Michigan game (on Sept. 22) because that will be a great atmosphere to take in," Shannon said. "Plus, his cousin, Brendan Gibbons, is a kicker there, but we'd love to see Notre Dame win."

For some reason I thought he was a TE. I'm assuming he has out grown the position?
He played tight end last season, but projected as an OT at the collegiate level and is making the switch at his high school for his senior campaign.
Staff is slow playing him. You dont just tell a kid to not come after he planned a trip to come out there from Florida.

Needs an offer now. No need to slow play.
Well if the actually want to evaluate him but don't have good enough competition coming in for him to go up against, it would make sense for him not to waste his time. Obviously the staff likes him but wants to see more before they pull the trigger on an offer.
Only four high school kids will be camping this weekend. Not the setting for prospective players to get evaluated.
Why so little Jason?
He's going to be a heckuva OT prospect. Look at Jordan Prestwood and I think Gibbons has a higher ceiling.
