Underwood Camping at Notre Dame

Brandon Underwood hails from Hamilton, OH. The 6-0, 170-pound corner prospect has some offers and plans to attend Notre Dame camp this Friday in search of another. How much interested does Underwood have in Notre Dame?

Brandon Underwood just returned for Iowa camp when he called me so I didn't get a lot of time with him. "I liked it a lot," said Underwood of his Iowa camp visit. "It's a great college atmosphere, they offered me and I have a strong interest in Iowa."

Underwood has other offers as well. "Iowa, Arizona State, Penn State, Maryland, Iowa State and Cincinnati have offered so far."

Underwood is heading to Notre Dame on Friday to work out and see if he can get an offer from the Irish. "They called in May and invited me to their camp. They said they were real interested and to keep working hard on the field and academically. I'm going there on Friday and we'll see what happens."

Ohio State is another school he will camp at. "My brother E.J. plays for Ohio State. He likes it there a lot. If they offered that would be great but I'm going to look at all the schools and I plan to take all my visits."

The corner prospect said all schools are recruiting him as a corner and he is qualified academically with a 2.6 core and scored a 19 on his ACT. "I took it again to see if I could get a better score."

Comments. If the Irish offer, expect them to move to the top of his list. If Ohio State offers, I think they will be his top school. The Irish will have an uphill battle if Ohio State offers as well. He says he will look at all the schools and I believe he will. I think he and his family will really like the coaching staff and Notre Dame so that should give the Irish a chance at least.
