David Snow (6-foot-4, 300 pounds) is already getting bombarded with recruiting material. The junior offensive lineman has heard from the Irish, and he would like to hear more.
"I sent them a something and let them know that I was interested in them," Snow replied when asked how Notre Dame became interested in him. "They send me stuff in the mail all the time. I don't know much about them, but it's always neat to see the gold helmets on TV.
"They have great football tradition and I just like the nature of the football up there. Everyone loves Notre Dame up there. I watch them a lot on TV, but I've never been there. . I don't know much about the coaches, I just know about their tradition and what the school looks likes."
Notre Dame isn't the only school to have taken interest in Snow. He's receiving interest from some of the top programs in the country.
"I also get stuff from Oklahoma, Michigan, Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, Oklahoma State and a bunch of schools like that. Nebraska offered a scholarship a couple months ago. Michigan just offered. Oklahoma, Kansas State, A&M, Baylor have also offered. I can't remember the others.
"I talk to the Texas coaches a lot. I've talked to the Michigan coaches, Oklahoma and some others.
"I've been o camp at OU, Texas and Baylor. I've also been to Texas A&M," Snow said.
"I watched a lot of teams growing up; Nebraska, Texas, Notre Dame was always a big one and Oklahoma, but all the schools are even right now.
When looking for the right school, Snow will focus on three areas.
"Academics is the first thing," Snow explained. "The environment of the school. The tradition of the school are the things I'll look for.
There are a lot of big kids in high school, but the top recruits have something special.
"Our coaches coach us really good," Snow said when asked what differentiated him from other top players. "I never quit. They say that I'm very athletic. I'm really flexible. I can play all the positions on the line. I think I have a lot of room to grow and my strength is increasing all the time.
"I started on varsity as a freshman. I've always played offensive line, but I've played defense too. I've always played offensive line and I like to dominate people."
