Irish Eyes caught up with the father of Edwin Rollman. Ed Rollman Sr. took some time with us to give us some insight into his son, and his interest in Notre Dame.
"Ed's at a Fellowship of Christain Athletes meeting," said the elder Rollman. "He should be home later." We didn't get a chance to speak to him, but will soon.
We asked Ed Sr. if the Irish have offered at this point. "No they haven't yet. We are scheduled to go up for a visit on January 30th. We are hoping to move that up if we can. That is getting kind of late. Notre Dame says they are very interested in him, and they usually don't schedule a visit unless they are going to offer."
Is Ed Jr. interested in Notre Dame? "Very much so. Both he and I are Notre Dame fans. My grandfather went to Notre Dame. I had some uncles and cousins that went to Notre Dame. We all love Notre Dame. Ed is hoping they offer because that is where he'd like to go."
"As of now, Ed has visits scheduled to SMU this weekend, he has Purdue on January 16th, Kansas on January 23rd, and the Notre Dame trip on the 30th."
Ed Sr. said the Irish should be getting in touch with the family soon. "They said they'd be calling pretty soon. We'll see if we can move the visit up. Hopefully we'll hear something this week."
Comments: Ed Sr. and Ed Jr. both appear to be very excited about the Irish. At this point there is no offer. We'll get in touch with Ed Jr. soon and get his thoughts on the Irish. We'll add him to the call list and keep an eye on him.
