Guyton making Midwest stops
Wide receiver Jalen Guyton of Allen (Texas) High was offered by Notre Dame on Feb. 20, and less than a month later, the three-star athlete has already planned a trip to see the Irish. As part of his spring break this week, Guyton will visit Ohio State on Wednesday, Northwestern on Thursday and Notre Dame on Friday. Guyton has 13 offers, including Arizona, Clemson, Ole Miss, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Stanford and Texas A&M. "I have a lot of schools that I want to visit," Guyton said. "I've visited Texas so far this spring, and now I'm seeing these three schools, and then I'm going to visit Clemson in April." Guyton keeps in close touch with Notre Dame assistant Kerry Cooks, who he collaborated with to set up this Irish visit. Guyton will be accompanied on his visit by his father, uncle and two cousins. "At first I didn't know if I was going to be able to visit Notre Dame this spring because it's not a close trip, but I talked with Coach Cooks and we were able to set this up. We decided on Friday because I can watch a spring practice." "I've heard how pretty the campus is," Guyton added. "I'm really excited to see Notre Dame in person." The 6-foot-1, 185-pound wide receiver plans to use one of his official visits to see Stanford, but the other four are still up for grabs. "I will probably wait to visit Stanford on an official because that would be expensive with all of the other visits I'm taking," Guyton said. "But, this visit to Notre Dame on Friday will most definitely help me determine if I go back there on an official visit." When Guyton first was offered by Notre Dame, he told Scout.com a "pass-happy offense and education" were his main priorities in a college. "I want a school that passes the ball around a lot," Guyton said at the time. "One that gets the ball in the hands of the wide receivers. I want a winning program and one that has a good degree and good network."
