Is Stewart Still Interested in Notre Dame?

Olympia, Wash. running back Jonathan Stewart is ranked as the No. 1 running back in the nation by The 5-10, 218-pound Stewart had been interested in Notre Dame prior to the coaching change at Notre Dame. We spoke with Stewart on Monday night to get his reaction to the naming of Charlie Weis as Notre Dame's new coach.

Five-star running back Jonathan Stewart told us on Monday night that the Irish are no longer on his list.

"Right now I'm down to USC, Oregon, Washington State and Tennessee," said Stewart.

The Irish are still trying to get back in the mix.

"They tried to call me tonight," said Stewart of Notre Dame. "I didn't talk to (Weis) tonight, but they tried to call."

Do the Irish have a shot?

"They are completely out of it," said Stewart.

Does he have any interest in speaking to Weis?

"I have no interest," he said.

Comments: It looks as if the Irish will have to move on from Stewart when looking to sign some running backs. However, we don't think Weis will give up that easily for this top prospect. Top Stories
