The last time Conor Hanratty (6-foot-5, 290-pounds) was at Notre Dame was last spring for the Blue-Gold game. That weekend he committed. This weekend he was taking his official visit.
"It went pretty well," Hanratty said. "I got in on Thursday night, but my visit didn't start until Friday. On Friday, I basically talked to the admissions, that academic people and then the coaches.
"The coaches really didn't go into much detail on things. I guess what I got out of it was knowing what I'm up against in terms of the workouts and me getting in the best shape that I can so that I can hit the ground running when I get out there.
"I have to be in the best shape of my life when I get out there," he said. "I'm sure once I get out there I'll take it from there. I've heard coach Longo is very good."
Like several of his classmates, Conor is hoping to get back to Notre Dame several times this spring.
"I'm going to try to get over for some spring practices and the spring game," he said.
