"I saw Notre Dame when they played at Michigan State," said West. "Their defense was fast and really sharp in everything they do. You can see the players are really smart and love to play hard and physical."
While West has not been able to visit campus up to this point, he's been in contact with the Irish.
"I'm talking with (assistant) coach Mike Elston," said West. "I also receive a lot of mail from Notre Dame. The coaches tell me to stay focused on my school work and how they are going to be watching me real hard. They also tell me they would love for me to come to their school and play for them."
For West the early part of the college football season has seen him take in several games.
While projected as a safety in college, West is helping his team playing a different role this season.
"We're 6-0 as of right now," said West. "Last week we were down 13-points but came back to take a one point lead. I then had a pick six that I returned to the house putting us up 28-20 sealing the win. Right now I don't have that many tackles as I'm playing corner, but I've got three picks and have also been playing receiver."
