LeMay Discusses Irish, Possible Visit

Notre Dame is one of the dozens of schools to offer Butler High (Matthews, N.C.) receiver Uriah LeMay. So, what are the chances he visits South Bend, Ind., to see what the Irish have to offer? IrishEyes.com caught up with the 6-foot-2, 180-pound receiver to find out.

At this point in the recruiting process, Butler High (Matthews, N.C.) receiver Uriah LeMay can pick the school he wants to attend.

His offers are that deep.

However, before Notre Dame becomes a serious contender for the 6-foot-2, 180-pound LeMay, it will have to get him on campus so he can learn a bunch more about the school.

"I get a lot of emails from them," LeMay said. "I get a lot of information in the emails, talking about their campus, the school, the (NFL) combine that just came up. It's things of that nature." However, LeMay said he does not have many phone conversations with the Irish staff, but a few he had when he was offered a while ago left him wanting more. He is contemplating a spring visit.

"The conversation I had with them way back when really made me want to take a visit up and see everything that was up there," he said. "It's definitely under consideration."

Lemay's knowledge of the Irish isn't in-depth, but he knows the basics.

"They have a great tradition," he said. "That's one of the things that stands out about them. It's their tradition and impressive history. They've fallen off a little lately, but the things they've been telling me and the things I've seen, they're definitely on the right track to getting back to a dynasty."

LeMay has offers from the likes of Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State and Virginia Tech, as well as a host of others.

However, LeMay is not ready to start trimming his list.

"I'm still going to take a few more visits before I make a top seven," he said. "Most likely I will be making a decision later on the year, probably toward the end of the season or after it."

LeMay also outlined the basics of what he is looking for in a school.

"I want somewhere I can grow academically, socially, athletically, spiritually," he said, "and just become a better overall person than when I first came on the campus as well as a safe environment that later on down the road, after I graduate, it's someplace I can bring my own kids and tell them this is where I went to school."
