Checked in with defensive end Stephon Tuitt and he confirmed that he was at Georgia Tech this weekend on an official visit.
When asked if he was still committed to the Irish, he simply stated, "Yes."
In an effort to get Tuitt to elaborate on his status coming out of the official visit, he reiterated that he's committed to Notre Dame and will have more answers "in a few days."
Based on the feedback from Tuitt, the Yellow Jackets have given him a few things to think about in the coming days.
We'll be looking to get a more in-depth update when he's ready to take more questions.
Tuitt has reportedly committed to Georgia Tech.
Trying to confirm.
Monroe Area High School has confirmed that Tuitt has switched his verbal to Georgia Tech.

oh, good grief.
POTW 11/9 to 11/15/2010
Heres what recruiting has become: player commits early, then player starts really deciding and taking visits, he drops hints along the way which may or may not mean anything, finally press conf is schedued where he announces if he'll decommit or not.
Early signing period!!!
I am sure the coaches will stay all over him and visit as often as permitted. We should have a better sense in a few days after he has time to reflect. However, this situation seems a bit different than his visit to Auburn.
This one is a little tenous at best. We need mom and Diaco to get involved.
i have a feeling he is gone. I hope i am wrong.

I'm not worried at all. He helped get his high school teammate a full ship to GT. He's all Notre Dame.
Aside from the coaches, Lynch and Williams should be great recruiters to keepTuitt.
Ok, I'm a bit worried but that's because we have been burned before and GT being close to home along with his BF verballing is a bit troubling. However, I believe he will be in Texas in 2 weeks to play an all-star game along with Hagerty and the two Atkinson brothers. That might make an awkward situation if he decommits the week before.

Let's all hope he stay's to say we need this caliber player is an understatement.
Did he sound positive? Sapp
3 time POTW;
The funny thing about this whole situation is the active way Tuitt was recruiting other prospects to join him in God's Country yet in the end he might be the one who doesnt show up? I really want this kid bad but I know how hard it is to move away and play college athletics without the support of family being close. But this is NOTRE DAME!!
would love to have Tuitt but we are in pretty good shape we still have Williams and Lynch. The recruiting at ND will only get better by are performance on the field
Not looking good at this point and time. Taking too long to make a decision. I would say GT is favored right now. Hate to say it, though. Maybe ND can get Niklas. GO IRISH
6-Time POTW Winner, 4 time at BGI and 2 at 24/7
