Humphrey calls Notre Dame his 'top priority'
Notre Dame is hitting Texas hard early in the 2015 recruiting cycle, especially when it comes to wide receivers and defensive backs. One of the latest prospects to receive a Notre Dame offer is three-star John Humphrey of League City (Texas) Clear Falls. "Oh, man, I was really excited," Humphrey said. "It's a private school and one of the top in the nation. It's a very hard school to get into. Just the atmosphere and the tradition is amazing. It's a great school, and I would want to be a part of something like that." Shortly after Humphrey found out he was offered by Notre Dame, he gave Irish cornerbacks coach and Texas recruiter Kerry Cooks a call. "Coach Cooks told me that if I decided to come to Notre Dame, then I could pick if I wanted to play offense or defense," Humphrey said. "I don't really have a preference though, I'll play wherever the team needs me. He likes the way that I get in and out of pass blocks, and he likes my speed and my shiftiness." Humphrey also reported offers from Baylor, Boston College, Clemson, Oklahoma, SMU and Texas Tech. "I don't have any favorites right now, but Notre Dame is my top priority," Humphrey said. "I will most definitely visit this spring. Coach Cooks and I already talked about this. I am going to book a flight up there pretty soon." Humphrey is the son of John Humphrey Sr., who played at Texas A&M and went on to play for the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL. "My dad and my mom are involved (in the process)," Humphrey said. "They just tell me to pick a school that fits me the best." Humphrey does not have any other spring visits currently scheduled. He plans to take official visits before deciding a school.
