Filer Nearing a Decision

Five-star linebacker Steve Filer is still in South Bend, but we were able to reach this Chicago, Ill. native earlier this morning to get his thoughts on his Irish visit.

Linebacker Steve Filer has been to Notre Dame a number of times on unofficial visits. He's currently in South Bend right now and says he's having a great time.

"I'm really liking it here," Filer said of his time spent at Notre Dame. "I really like the people here. I really like all the coaches. They make me feel like I'm one of the family. It's just a real nice atmosphere, and I feel real comfortable at Notre Dame."

The five-star prospect says he's nearing a decision.

"I think I'll probably make an announcement next week," he said. "Probably by Wednesday. I don't know the exact date or time yet. I need to go back and talk it over with my coach. It will probably be Tuesday or Wednesday. I'll let you know on Monday after I talk to him."

It appears it's a two-team race for Filer's commitment at this point.

"It will be between Notre Dame and Ohio State," Filer said of his final two. Top Stories
