Sometimes the biggest commitments are from the guys you already have. That certainly is the case with Stephon Tuitt (6-foot-5, 255-pounds). Notre Dame is trying to hang onto one of the top rated defensive lineman in the country. IrishEyes spoke with his mother Monday night and she confirmed that Stephon is in the process of making a decision between Notre Dame and Georgia Tech.
"He is still committed to Notre Dame," she said. "He would like to take a couple days to think about think about everything. He just needs some time before he's ready to talk (to the media)."
Tuitt committed to Notre Dame shortly after he took his official visit for the Michigan game. He had been considered a solid commitment until he opted to take an official visit to Auburn in December. Shortly after returning from his visit to Auburn, Tuitt eliminated the school from consideration.
