Irish high on Nance's list

Texas linebacker Brian Nance holds Notre Dame high on his list of schools. Irish Eyes checks in to get the latest.

The last time Irish Eyes checked in with Brian Nance of Euless (TX) Trinity High School he had not had much contact with the Irish coaching staff despite holding an offer. Has that changed lately?

"Not really," Nance said by phone. I am pretty sure Notre Dame will be in my Top 5 schools when the time comes. I hope to visit Notre Dame on an official visit."

One thing the 6-foot-3, 210-pound Texan is not afraid to talk about is his desire to leave his home state.

"I am not staying here in Texas. I am looking for good academics and good weather. I do not like the heat. I like a cool breeze and snow would be ok."

With programs like USC, Oregon and Oklahoma joining the Irish in Nance's top schools do not look for a commitment anytime soon.

"I am looking to take all of my official visits before making a decision.

Irish Eyes will continue to check back with Brian in the future about his interest in Notre Dame. Top Stories
