Hinds Not Camping at Notre Dame

Irish fans were hoping that quarterback Rocky Hinds would make it to Notre Dame summer football camp. Hinds won't be able to make the camp this year but remains interested in Notre Dame.

Rocky Hinds has seen his stock skyrocket this summer. The 6-4, 210-pound quarterback from Playa Del Rey, CA has offers from every Pac 10 school other than Stanford and also has offers from West Virginia, San Diego State, Utah and Nebraska.

Hinds had planned on attending the Notre Dame summer camp. "I can't make it. I'm going to Washington on Friday and then I'm attending the Beyond 2000 camp on the 26-29th. That falls during the Notre Dame camp so it didn't work out for me."

Hinds says he is still interested in Notre Dame. They are in my top four and I'm still interested. I like their tradition and I hope to make a visit out there."

His top four remain USC, UCLA, Washington and Notre Dame. "I like those four the best and everyone else is kind of a little bit lower right now. I will probably take visits to all those four and I plan to take all my visits before I decided."

Comments. With all the names mentioned at quarterback, I think Hinds gets short-changed by some Irish fans. I've heard this kid is outstanding and one of the best quarterbacks in the country. He is an outstanding athlete that can throw the football. I hope the Irish recruit him heavily because he is also a solid kid.
