Andrew Nuss (6-foot-5, 290 pounds) didn't get enough of Notre Dame during his official visit so he returned a couple weeks later to watch his future teammates take on Stanford. He also wanted to see if he could help recruit a couple players.
"The trip was really good," Nuss said of his unofficial visit for the Stanford game. "It was my dad's birthday and I wanted to take him to a game. They won so it was a great time. I had a great time at the Michigan game but they didn't win that game.
Nuss has always felt comfortable at Notre Dame, but with each trip to South Bend his excitement to join the program increases.
"I learned a lot on my official visit, Nuss explained. "When you meet people of the first time you're just starting to get to know them and you learn about their background. Once you get to know them better you become more comfortable and you talk about a lot more. I think I know all I need to know about Notre Dame for now.
"They're not sure which side of the ball I'll play on They said it really depends on how recruiting goes. I'm real excited. Whatever gets me on the field the fastest."
