2014 WR hears from Irish

Notre Dame recently made a stop in Ohio and made sure one prospect understood they have early interest.

Thaddeus Snodgrass of Springfield (OH) High School recently learned Notre Dame has interest in learning more about him.

"Notre Dame stopped by my school on Tuesday," said Snodgrass. "Coach (Mike) Elston and offensive coordinator Coach (Chuck) Martin stopped in."

While there the Irish learned more about the 6-foot-2, 175-pound wide receiver.

"Coach Elston left me a questionnaire, talked about academics and invited me up to their camp," explained Snodgrass. "Our team may also go up there for their 7-on-7 this summer."

While Snodgrass would like to spend more time in the weight room for football, he's been busy running track this spring with much success.

"We just had our country meet," said Snodgrass. "We won the 4x1 and the 4x2 and I won the 200 running a 22.6."

One thing Snodgrass admits is the thought of playing college football is just starting to enter his mind as more programs show interest.

"The thought of playing college football really hasn't hit me yet," he said. "I've been working hard to get better and our new coach (Eric Gillespie) is way more intense."

Snodgrass has yet to take the ACT but plans on doing so soon and reports a GPA over 3.0 at this time.
