Treggs knows people make the difference

After reflecting on his recent visit to Notre Dame, wide receiver Bryce Treggs knows people make the difference. Where do the Irish stack up among the talented wide receiver's offers?

Hitting the Notre Dame campus has given Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco High School wide receiver Bryce Treggs better insight into a program he has heard much about.

"My trip to Notre Dame was great. I got to see what the tradition of Notre Dame was like firsthand and not just hear about it."

While most recruits quickly talk about facilities, Treggs pointed out the biggest thing he would remember about his trip was the people he came in contact with.

"The people are very supportive of the football program. Notre Dame is a football school as everybody knows about the football team. On game day, even for a spring game, there was like thousands of people out there asking for autographs and supporting the team."

Another side of the people perspective Treggs is looking at is the relationships between he and the Irish coaches.

"Before I even visited Notre Dame there was a strong relationship with Coach Denbrock. We communicate every week and almost every other day in some form. When I got to campus, I was also able to build a relationship with Coach Alford. Being able to build a relationship with my position coach was great."

After talking with Coach Alford, Treggs can see great things in his future if he were to select the Irish.

"I think I can fit in the offense good. Coach Alford says he would want me to play slot so I can match up against linebackers who cannot cover. So I would be able to take advantage of those match-ups and things like that and have a chance to catch about 60 balls as a freshman. That would be great."

Before Saturday how many times had the 5-foot-11, 175-pound receiver seen the Irish in action?

"This past season I was able to watch them in their bowl game and their game against USC."

Bryce also stressed he has not trimmed his list down and Notre Dame is at the top of his current list. As for leaving the West Coast, it does not sound like much of an issue.

"Right now I am being recruited by mainly Pac-10 programs and Notre Dame. I do not really see leaving as a problem. I am looking for a program with superior academics, a winning tradition, a good campus life, and good people to go along with a great relationship with the coaches."

The Irish look to be in good standing at this time with Bryce and while he may not be ready to make his commitment at this time, he can see himself being successful in the Irish program.
