Wait and see for Todd

Head coach at La Mirada (Calif.) Mike Moschetti discusses where wide receiver Dallis Todd stands on a Notre Dame offer, when he'll most likely make his decision, and what school in the South has a good shot at landing an official visit.

La Mirada (Calif.) wide receiver Dallis Todd knows that though he may have to wait awhile, receiving a Notre Dame offer could be a high possibility.

"Notre Dame loves Dallis," La Mirada head coach Mike Moschetti said. "They are going to take two wide receivers in this class, and they already have a commitment. Dallis is an outside guy, and they're looking to add an inside, slot guy who can return kicks and punts."

However, don't expect Notre Dame to back off on Todd's recruitment.

"They told Dallis that it's only March, and a lot can happen between now and a year. They are going to recruit Dallis just as hard as if he had an offer," Moschetti said.

As the 6-foot-5, 210-pound wide receiver receives increased attention from schools, Todd's head coach says he's contemplating a decision date.

"Dallis talked to me about when he visits schools this spring, if he should just go ahead and commit," Moschetti said. "I told him if he can, it would be better to visit schools more than once and really look at all your options. So, I think he'll take all his official visits."

Another school that Todd is hearing from frequently is Clemson.

"Clemson saw his film, and the next day they offered," Moschetti said. "It was that quick. Clemson's offense puts numbers up with anybody. Dallis watched their bowl game, and we both thought it was an unbelievable game."

Moschetti says Todd recognizes that playing football in the South presents a unique environment.

"The South has great tradition, especially places like Clemson, Alabama, and Georgia," Moschetti said. "There's something different about playing there, in a good way. It's not just about the Pac 12 out west. Dallis is certainly intrigued by Clemson and their traditions, like rubbing the rock. There's a high possibility he'll take an official visit to Clemson. "

Moschetti has connections to Clemson's defensive coordinator, Brent Venables.

"I knew Coach Venables when he was on Oklahoma's staff," Moschetti said. "I also played against him, so there's mutual respect there. Clemson has a great coaching staff."

Moschetti says Todd will visit Ohio State in April.

As a junior, Todd caught 72 passes for 1,041 yards and 10 touchdowns.
