Notre Dame On The Outside Looking In For Long

<P>Notre Dame needs offensive linemen in this class and they need offensive tackles specifically. Lampeer, MI is home to Jake Long. Long is a 6-7 305 pound tackle that would have fit in nicely at Notre Dame. </P>

"I have offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Penn State, Northwestern and Notre Dame. I have kind of narrowed things down a little."

I asked Jake which schools he had narrowed it down to. "I am pretty much down to Michigan and Purdue. I have seen Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue and Ohio State. I will probably decide before August and it will likely be down to either Michigan or Purdue."

I asked Jake if the rumors were true that Michigan would win out in the end. "I am not sure but I would say they are my leader. I went to camp there and felt very comfortable. I am just not sure yet."

Comments. Notre Dame liked this player quite a bit. He didn't seem the slightest bit interested in Notre Dame. A real nice kid though. Top Stories
