Weber will take official visit to Notre Dame
Running back Mike Weber of Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech decommitted from Michigan on Saturday. On Sunday, Notre Dame extended a long-awaited offer to the four-star. "It feels really good," Weber said. "I was pretty surprised and thought that if Notre Dame was going to offer me, it would have happened already. But now that I have it, it feels really good. I actually can't wait to visit." Weber learned of his new offer when he spoke with Notre Dame running back coach and recruiting coordinator Tony Alford on the phone. "He (Alford) asked me a few questions at first to see what I thought about Notre Dame," Weber said. "I told him that I liked how Notre Dame used their running backs and how they got early playing time. I told him I thought a Notre Dame degree means a ton. Then he told me was I being offered." Weber first jumped on Notre Dame's radar in the spring of 2013, though nothing ever materialized in the form of an offer. "Coach Alford said he really liked my film and that he's looking forward to building the relationship with me and my family," Weber added. "He is a guy that seems like he loves his players and has been very successful with his running backs in recent years." The 5-foot-10, 210-pound back has yet to take any of his official visits. However, that will soon change. "I am going to Notre Dame in December," Weber said. "I think it's around that time (Dec. 12 - banquet weekend), but I can't remember. I'm also going to Ohio State, USC, Michigan State and Georgia(on official visits)." Weber said a visit to Ohio State this weekend is possible, though no other dates besides Notre Dame have been set. He plans to announce his commitment at the Army Bowl on Jan. 4. "It will be a lot about the coaches," Weber said. "And, how badly they want me or need me." Weber is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 10 running back in the class of 2015.
