David Brown said he loved his trip to Notre Dame. "I knew a lot about the school already," said Brown. "I just wanted to know how I felt about the school, being around the students and the players. I'd say I accomplished that. I really felt comfortable there with the school and the players."
Brown said his host was Justin Tuck for his visit. "I liked him a lot. We played some Madden and I was up 21-0 and he came back and beat me. He told me that he had a two-year winning streak before Ryan Grant beat him. I might have to go back and play him again."
The visit was a hit for both Brown and his parents. "Coach Willingham was impressive as usual. He answered all my questions. We talked on-one-one three times. My parents were really impressed with him and Notre Dame. They just loved the whole thing. My Dad talked to Coach Willingham at dinner. I think he changed my Dad's mind about where I should go. He wanted me to go to Alabama, but now he told me that he liked Notre Dame."
The game atmopshere was also a hit for Brown. "It felt good to get in the cold again. I haven't been in the cold for a while so that was kind of fun. The game was great. They won and their seniors were real excited. If they win the next two games, they have a shot to go to a bowl game. A lot of people said their season is over, but it's not yet. I really enjoyed the game atmosphere."
Brown has changed some of visits to try to make an earlier decision. "I'm going to Georgia this weekend. I have Alabama on December 6th and Georgia Tech on December 13th. I think I'll take my last visit to Vanderbilt. Tennessee, LSU and South Carolina are still kind of there, but I think I'll visit Vanderbilt."
Where do the Irish stand now? "They are really high up there right now. I really liked the visit and my parents really enjoyed it. I could see myself going to school there easily. I will probably say that about all the schools. We'll see after my visits."
Comments: The Irish did a great job with Brown. I'd say the Irish are at least even with Alabama right now. The Alabama visits looms large however. We'll have to wait and see what happens.
