Springboro (Ohio) tight end Jordan Rigg is no different and the 6-foot5, 230-pound junior will get a firsthand look at the Irish this weekend.
"I'm going up to Notre Dame for their game against Wake Forest," said Rigg. "I've never been to Notre Dame but a lot of members of my family have been there and loved it. So I'm really looking forward to the visit."
Coming off a junior year that saw Springboro go 10-0 before losing in the first round of the playoffs before jumping into basketball has kept Rigg busy. However, a chance to visit the Irish was too good to pass up.
"Notre Dame has been sending me a lot of mail," said Rigg. "But I've not really had a chance to talk with any of their coaches up to this point. However, I'm looking forward to learning more about the program.
"I've known about Notre Dame like a lot of other people from watching them on television and the movie Rudy, but I'm looking forward to seeing things myself.
Rigg is used mostly as a blocking tight end and also takes reps as a defensive lineman.
