Peoples Making Visit to ND

Notre Dame is trying to lure some of their top recruiting prospects to South Bend this weekend for their initial junior day. Desmon Peoples from Archbishop Wood High School (Warminster, Pa.) is one of those invited and he'll be in town.

Desmon Peoples (5-foot-7.5, 170-pounds) doesn't know a lot about Notre Dame, but he's hoping to find out more this weekend. Peoples and several other prospects from his high school will be at Notre Dame on Saturday for the Irish junior day.

"I'll definitely be over there with a couple of my teammates," Peoples said. "I'm going up with Colin Thompson, Frank Taylor, Nate Smith and Brandon Arcidicano. I'm just excited about getting over there and meeting the coaching staff.

"My coach has been talking to them (Notre Dame coaches) for a couple months now, and everything is going fine. I really want to get a feel for the campus and how they run their offense and the relationship between the coaches and their players."

Although Peoples is going to learn more about the school, he already is impressed with a number of aspects about Notre Dame.

"I like the prestige of the school," he said. "Every game they play is on TV. They have outstanding academics, and I feel if I don't make it in football that I be successful in life afterward if I had a Notre Dame degree.

Peoples has scholarship offers from Rutgers and Pittsburgh. Top Stories
