Roche Still Undecided on Final Visits

Ramsey, N.J. offensive line prospect Brian Roche has had a wild ride during his recruitment. The former Rutgers commitment has reopened his recruitment, and a number of schools are hoping to land official visits with this four-star prospect. Will the Irish get a visit from Roche?

Offensive line prospect Brian Roche has already visited two schools officially and has another lined up for the month of January.

"I've already been to Michigan State and Louisville," said Roche. "I have another visit scheduled for North Carolina State on January 14th."

That leaves two official visits remaining. Roche says he's not certain where he'll be visiting with his final two visits.

"I'm kind of waiting on that," Roche said of scheduling his last two official visits. "I'm waiting to hear back from a few schools before I do that. Notre Dame and Virginia Tech are some of the schools I'm thinking about visiting."

Irish head coach Charlie Weis has been trying to reach Roche to schedule a visit recently.

"I've spoken to him once already," said Roche of Weis. "He's been trying to reach me. I'm supposed to talk to him later today.

"I really liked him when I spoke to him. I've only talked to him once. He seems really committed to winning.

"He's coming to New Jersey on January 3rd so I'll know then if I plan to visit Notre Dame."

We asked Roche when he'll know which schools he plans to visit.

"I really don't know when I'll know where I'm visiting," Roche said. "I should know within the next few weeks."

Does Roche have a leader at this point?

"No, I don't have any leader," he said. "I haven't taken all my visits yet. I'll know more on that after my visits."

Comments: The Irish should get a visit from Roche. He seems pretty interested in Notre Dame at this point. We'll call him back shortly to find out if and when he plans to visit Notre Dame. Top Stories
