Though highschool basketball season is right around the corner, recruiting season is in full swing for Grixby. "I have my top five. I'm looking at Nebraska, Notre Dame, Kansas State, Iowa, and UCLA. I've already visited Nebraska and Iowa and I'm in the process of setting up visits to my others."
How was the Nebraska visit? "The Nebraska visit was great. I had a really good time there. My brother plays for Nebraska so I pretty much knew what to expect, but I still had a good time."
Has Notre Dame been in contact lately? "I talked to Coach Willingham two weeks ago. He called and we talked about a lot of different things. Not just football. He was real articulate and intelligent. We had a good conversation. He was very impressive. I missed the calls from Notre Dame last week."
Cortney has yet to set up a visit to South Bend, but he's looking for possible dates now. "I'll have to talk to the [Notre Dame] coaches to see what dates are best. I'm sure it will be sometime in January."
Comments: Notre Dame still has a real shot. Coach Willingham made a good impression on Grixby. IrishEyes will keep you updated on Grixby's visit date to South Bend.
