Elite WR talks Recruiting Options

Scout.com US Army All-American selection and four star wide receiver talks recruiting and updates those schools still in the hunt for his signature.

We caught up with Kansas City Rockhurst WR D.J. Hord for a quick update to see where he's at in his recruitment today. The Midlands Hot 50 #3 has narrowed it down to four schools. We grab a tidbit on each of those four programs ad talk official visit agenda...

"Right now, I've narrowed it down to Kansas State, LSU, Notre Dame and Wisconsin," D.J. Hord told Scout.com.

Official Visit Agenda: "I visited K-State last weekend (12/10) and this week I'm going to Wisconsin (12/17)."

"After that," the 6-1, 190-pound speedster continued, "I'll probably go to Notre Dame the first week of January (1/7). I might go down on a Thursday (1/6) and come back on Saturday. And, then I'll go to LSU January 21."

Thoughts on K-State?

"I like their coaches, the players and the school. I just took a visit there last weekend and had a really good time. Coach Bob Elliott is the coach recruiting me for K-State and we have a good relationship."

Thoughts on LSU?

"Coach Mike Collins is telling me that I'd be a perfect fit for their offense, and that LSU would be a good fit for me, both academically and athletically."

Thoughts on Notre Dame?

"I'm keepin' an open mind with them since they have a new coach and kind of just seeing what's going on there. I talked to Coach Charlie Weiss the other day and he said he wants me to come up the first week in January."

Thoughts on Wisconsin?

"I've never been to Wisconsin before, so kind of want to see what it's like. Coach Henry Mason is the coach recruiting me for Wisconsin and I'll know more about them after I take my official visit."

At this time, Hord said all four schools in his top four are dead even. The 4-star pass-catcher said he'll use the official visits and future in-home visits from the respective head coaches to gather the necessary info to make an informed decision.
