The interviews are over. Last week Katie Couric interviewed Manti Te’o. This week Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man who pretended to be the woman Te’o loved, sat down with Phil McGraw. The facts are now clear. Also clear is that no one wants to confront the relationship life lessons revealed by Te’o's story. We apparently don’t want to see uncomfortable truths about love and texts.
Notre Dame Football Recruiting: Update on Irish's Top Remaining Prospects
The legendary football rivalry between USC and Notre Dame isnt limited to the field as the Irish vie for several former Trojan commits.
Irish Offer 2014 RB Scott
Notre Dame assistant Mike Elston stopped by Havelock High School in Havelock, N.C. on Thursday to get a look at 2014 running back Derrell Scott.
“Coach Elston came by the school,” Havelock head coach Jim Bob Bryant said. “He said they really liked his film. They just wanted to eyeball him. He was walking by and he saw him.
“When he saw he was 5-10.5 and 185 pounds, they went ahead and offered him.”
Notre Dame joins a lengthy early list that already includes schools like North Carolina, North Carolina State, Duke, South Carolina, Tennessee, Maryland, Florida State and Georgia Tech among others.
“His ability to make people miss, his speed, his power,” Bryant said when asked what makes Scott special. “He’s the total package.
“He has a 3.6 GPA, 4.4 in the 40, 35-inch vertical jump. He’s just a tremendous athlete and a hard worker.”
Even with all of the other offers, Scott was fired up to add the Irish to the list.
“He was real excited about it,” his coach said. “He knows Notre Dame has a strong tradition in football. Hopefully we’ll be able to get him out to one of their camps this summer so he can see the campus.”
Scott has already hit some of the local schools.
“He’s visited Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State, East Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee,” said Bryant.
He expects to hit some more in the coming months.
“He’ll try to do some one-day camps and stuff this summer.”
ISD will have more with Scott and his offer from the Irish soon.
On Dec. 10, 1862, Lt. Orville Chamberlain of the 74th Indiana Infantry wrote home to his family in Elkhart from his camp, 50 miles northeast of Nashville, Tenn. A few days earlier, the regiment had marched eight miles from its camp after hearing the sound of cannon to the east. “Our advance was cautious,” he wrote, “as we expected to meet the enemy.”
The war comes to Notre Dame.
