4-star CB Redmond Planning Notre Dame Trip

Memphis (Tenn.) East High four-star cornerback Will Redmond is committed to Mississippi State and he will make an official visit there next month. He is also talking about an official visit to Notre Dame, and he spoke to IrishEyes.com about why that is on his agenda.

A crazy schedule and the expenses incurred during it kept Memphis (Tenn.) East High four-star cornerback Will Redmond from visiting Notre Dame in the summer.

A subsequent commitment to Mississippi State didn't help, but the Irish are again involved with the 6-foot, 180-pound Redmond.

"I am thinking about making a visit but I don't have a date," Redmond said. "It would be to see Notre Dame and to experience the Notre Dame tradition, and also to see how I would fit in that program."

Redmond will visit Mississippi State on Jan. 13, and is thinking about a trip to Notre Dame the following weekend. He is also eyeing trip to Tennessee and Vanderbilt, and he already made one to Georgia.

"I can see myself going (to Mississippi State), but I wouldn't be taking this visit if I didn't think I could be going to Notre Dame, too," Redmond said. "I just want to be sure about the process."

Since having to cancel the summer visit because of expenditures from multiple visits in the summer, Redmond said he has thought often about trying to get up to Notre Dame.

And since an official visit would be paid for by Notre Dame, and since he continues to have interest in the school, he is trying to work out a weekend.

"This has something to do with (the summer cancellation)," Redmond said. "I am still being recruited by them and they are one of the schools I'm looking at for one of my five visits." And, Redmond added, the Irish are recruiting him hard.

"They come down to see me often," he said. "I talked to them every week. Coach (Brian) Kelly is coming down sometime in January."

As a senior, Redmond made 35 tackles and intercepted three passes. He also played on offense and ran 50 times for 361 yards and eight scores, and caught 20 passes for 416 yards and four scores.
