Roche Has One Final Visit

Ramsey, N.J. offensive lineman Brian Roche recently returned from an official visit to Florida and has one final visit left to Notre Dame. When will Roche make his final decision? Which teams are still in the race for Roche?

"I enjoyed my visit. It was a good visit overall," said Brian Roche of his visit to Florida this past weekend. "There were a lot of things I liked about it."

We asked Roche if he felt he fit in at Florida.

"Um, it's pretty diversified down there," he said. "I think you can fit in anywhere. So to answer your question, yeah, I think I fit in there."

Roche's last visit will be to Notre Dame this next weekend.

"I'm looking forward to it," Roche said. "I'm going there on Thursday and I'll be there for two or three days."

Does Roche have any in-home visits this week?

"I have coach Latina coming in tomorrow," he said. "I have Louisville and Florida coming as well."

We asked Roche if he'd ever met coach Latina.

"I met him last week," he said. "I liked him a lot. He's a good guy."

Roche did say that coach Petrino from Louisville has already come to see him, and that Florida's Urban Meyer has yet to have his in-home visit.

When will Roche decide?

"I think probably on signing day," he said. "I might announce it on ESPN. College Sports Television wants me to announce it with them. I'm not sure how I'm going to do that yet."

Comments: Roche has always been an important recruit for Notre Dame. The Irish have the last chance to impress him. Roche mentioned he's narrowed his list down to Notre Dame, Louisville, Florida nad North Carolina State. We think it will be a Notre Dame/Louisville battle in the end. Top Stories
