Will Gaines Visit Michigan?

Safety prospect Jashaad Gaines committed to Notre Dame back in September after visiting South Bend for the Michigan State game. Lately there has been some speculating that Gaines might take an official visit to Michigan. Will Gaines take a visit to Ann Arbor?

Safety prospect Jashaad Gaines says he's done with recruiting.

"I'm 100 percent committed to Notre Dame," Gaines said.

"No" was his answer when asked if he still planned to visit Michigan in the future.

"I just wanted to let their coach know that I wasn't visiting there," he said. "I'm 100 percent with Notre Dame. I'm excited about going to play there."

Gaines' Las Vegas (Nev.) high school team is also still in the playoffs.

"We play in the state championship game this week," he said. "I've just been playing defense. I have two picks and around 50 tackles this season."

The Las Vegas, Nev. native says he's also excited about the Irish this season.

"That was a big win," he said of Notre Dame's victory over Stanford. "I was definitely excited that they made it into the BCS. That will be a big step for next year."
