Ofodile wants to visit Notre Dame again

Four-star wide receiver Alex Ofodile of Columbia (Mo.) Rock Bridge Sr. recaps his weekend visit to Notre Dame and breaks down his quickly approaching decision timeline.

Wide receiver Alex Ofodile of Columbia (Mo.) Rock Bridge took in Notre Dame for the first time last weekend. The nation's No. 8 ranked wide out holds over 25 offers.

"My dad and I got there Friday night," Ofodile said. "On Saturday morning, we went to campus for the first time. It was definitely great. The tradition and everything was really cool to see."

Ofodile received a tour of campus and spoke with the staff before taking in the Blue-Gold game.

"Everything was beautiful," Ofodile said. "We got a tour of campus and met with some academic advisors. Then, I was able to talk with Coach (Brian) Kelly, Coach (Bob) Elliott, and Coach (Mike) Denbrock. They told me what a Notre Dame degree would do for me after football."

"The spring game was fun, too," Ofodile added. "I thought the wide receivers did a really good job as group making plays down the field."

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound wide receiver is planning to make his commitment by the first of June.

"I definitely plan on getting back to Notre Dame again," Ofodile said. "I can see myself there."

Ofodile has a busy schedule ahead of him, visiting Alabama next week, Michigan State and Louisville shortly thereafter, and Ohio State after that. Along with Notre Dame, Ofodile has visited Iowa once before and plans to re-visit the Hawkeyes, where his father starred on the gridiron before heading to the NFL.

Asked to name why he's strongly considering Notre Dame, he pointed to two factors.

"It's the tradition and the degree," Ofodile said. "Those are the two main reasons I would say."

In his decision-making process, Ofodile says he will also consider the type of offense a program runs as well as his relationship with the coaching staff.
