Hausmann calls Notre Dame a great environment
Notre Dame played host to the No. 1 ranked tight end in 2016 Jake Hausmann on Saturday night. "It was awesome, just a great environment to come into," Hausmann said. "The fans were very knowledgeable and knew all of our names. The game didn't disappoint either." The Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller product has visited Notre Dame multiple times, including a visit in June for Irish Invasion. "I definitely like Notre Dame more each time that I visit and as I learn more about the school," Hausmann said. Hausmann is eyeing a spring or summer decision, but he plans to see a few more schools on his offer list before narrowing down his options. "I want to see more schools before I narrow down my list, so I don't have any leaders or anything right now," Hausmann said. "I know I want to see Wisconsin one more time, maybe get down to Ole Miss, Kentucky, Louisville and see Ohio State again." Hausmann will visit Ohio State for its game vs. Cincinnati, and he'll return to Notre Dame in October when it takes on Stanford. The 6-foot-5, 235-pound tight end outlined four factors that will play a role in his decision-making process. "Definitely the comfort level with the coaches and the players and how they interact with each other and how I interact with them," Hausmann said. "Then, academics, how they use their tight ends and tradition of the school. Those are the four main things."
