Brian Nance (6-foot-3, 215-pounds) has caught the attention of several top football programs, and one of them is Notre Dame. Although the Irish offered him a scholarship last fall, Nance still hasn't had a chance to speak with the Irish coaching staff.
"I haven't really talked to them yet, but I know that they're still recruiting me," Nance said. "They offered me when they came up to my school while we were in the playoffs (last season).
"I haven't talked to them since, but I'm pretty sure they keep in contact with my coach. But as far as me, I haven't kept in contact with them.
"There's no reason (I haven't talked to them) really, I'm just waiting, focusing on spring football," he added.
Notre Dame fans shouldn't be concerned about the lack of contact. Nance has scholarship offers from Oklahoma, USC, Oregon, and TCU, and he hasn't been in touch with any coaches for some time.
"Maybe after spring football I'll start calling and seeing everybody," Nance said. "I haven't contacted anybody. I'm just trying to focus on school and spring football.
"Spring football starts after spring break. I'll get in touch with all the coaches after that."
While Nance hasn't had a chance to really learn much about Notre Dame, he does have interest in taking a look at the Irish football program.
"They're a good program," he said. "They're always a powerhouse program. They have great history and tradition at the school. It's a nice an all-around school. I like it a lot.
"Notre Dame is upcoming. They have Manti Te'o. He's a great linebacker and I like him a lot. But mostly it's the history and tradition that I like.
"My options are wide open right now," he said. "I don't have any favorites right now. I just want to see who is all going to offer me and just enjoy it."
