Brent takes in Irish junior day
Notre Dame wide receiver commit Justin Brent of Speedway (Ind.) High School visited Notre Dame yesterday for junior day, his 7th time visiting Notre Dame's campus. "It went really well," Brent said. "I've been up there a lot, but this was my first time seeing practice. That was very intense. It was their first day in pads. The coaches were telling me to go around wherever I wanted and go inside the huddles, so that was pretty cool." "I got to sit in on the meetings, which was awesome," Brent said. "They went over what they needed to improve from the day before and what they were going to work on that day and going forward. Some of it was confusing, just because I didn't know the plays they were talking about." Brent said he enjoyed hanging out with two future members of the Irish, and was impressed by his teammate's ability to recruit. "I didn't get a chance to meet too many of the recruits, but I got to hang out with (2013 signee) Jaylon Smith and (2014 commit) Jay Hayes a lot," Brent said. "Hayes really enjoyed it, and he even got someone (Andrew Trumbetti) to commit. I left at 2 p.m. because I had already gone on tours, but he (Trumbetti) committed later that day, and I think Hayes had a lot to do with it." "Coach (Brian) Kelly and (Mike) Elston were telling me that I need to get out on the recruiting trail," Brent said. "They were joking with me about it. Once I get to meet more of the guys this spring, I definitely will." Brent already knows when he'll be back on campus. "I'll be back for the spring game, I'm looking forward to it," he said. Brent is a four-star prospect, and is one of five committed prospects for the Irish in 2014.
