Robby Carmody has plenty of options for fall visits.
Cincinnati, Louisville, Michigan, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Syracuse and Xavier have all offered the junior shooting guard from Mars, Pa. But right now the only scheduled trip is to a program with which he’s already very familiar.
“Notre Dame the 17th and that’s it right now,” said Carmody, a four-star prospect slotted at No. 62 overall in the latest Scout rankings for the Class of 2018.
Carmody will be back on campus for the football game against Michigan State, a primetime kickoff. He’s already been to South Bend on multiple occasions, including the Louisville basketball game last season and again this offseason for a closer look at campus.
Notre Dame made the 6-foot-4, 190-pound prospect its first offer in the Class of 2018 during the spring.
Former assistant Martin Ingelsby had handled this recruitment. Ryan Ayers has since taken over.
Carmody started to build a rapport with Ayers from their first conversion.
“I love coach Ayers,” Carmody told Irish Illustrated in June. “He’s the one that’s been mostly talking to me. He’s a great dude. He understands the spot that I’m in because he was there once. It’s different because he understands I’m not always gonna be able to talk and stuff. He’s cool about it, makes stuff short. It’s just really nice talking to him.”
