4-star DB Julius Irvin In No Hurry To Decide

Anaheim (Calif.) Servite four-star defensive back Julius Irvin is in no rush to make a decision...

Anaheim (Calif.) Servite defensive back Julius Irvin (6-2, 181) is one of the region's top defensive backs in what is a loaded group.


Irvin has a dozen offers but is in no hurry to make a decision.

"I don't really have any schools standing out to me right now," said Irvin. "I won't start to narrow it down until the summer, so none are sticking out right now.  I'm just staying open minded and looking at schools with great educations.  And anywhere is fine, I'm not focused on one part of the country."

Irvin has taken a couple of unofficial visits to Pac-12 schools and plans to visit a few more in the spring.

"I've visited Colorado, USC and UCLA already," said Irvin.  "And I'm visiting California and Washington in April."

Irvin checked out Colorado in the fall during the season.

"It was great out at Colorado and I really enjoyed everything about that visit and the players they have there," said Irvin, who's teammate at Servite last year, quarterback Tyler Lytle, signed with the Buffs in the 2017 class.

Then came a visit to local school USC, which has had a nice history with Servite.

"Coach (Johnny) Nansen and Coach (Ronnie) Bradford are both recruiting me to USC and I really liked my time there," said Irvin.

UCLA also got in the mix with an offer and he checked them out.

"I had a good trip over to UCLA and got to meet with Coach Meat (Demetrice Martin), he's the one recruiting me," said Irvin.

Notre Dame offered Irvin recently and Irish assistant Brian Polian coached former Servite quarterback Cody Fajardo at Nevada.

"Coach Polian is who offered me at Notre Dame and he was just telling me he knows how good players from Servite are since he coached Cody," said Irvin.

Washington signed two of his good friends and former teammates, Terrell Bynum and Keith Taylor, last month.

"They're definitely recruiting me and trying to get me to go up there with them, so I'm going to go check them out for sure next month," said Irvin.
