Tashard Choice still likes Irish

<P>I have been involved in recruiting for a number of years and it's always a pleasure when you run into a player like Tashard Choice. I have no idea where Tashard will end up in college. The school that does land him is getting a great kid. </P>

Tashard Choice has had a nice start to his season. "My first game, I had 206 yards and 11 carries and 3 touchdowns. My next game, I had 115 yards on 23 carries and two touchdowns. Since then, I have had a bad shoulder. It's nothing serious and I should be ready for the next game."

Tashard has received some new offers. Minnesota, Miami of Ohio, Middle Tennesee State, Stanford, Georgia Southern and Navy have offered him a scholarship lately. Tashard is hoping some of his favorites offer soon. "The Georgia coaches came to a game, Georgia Tech, Alabama and Florida are coming soon. I think I am going to wait about 3-4 weeks to set up my visits to see what happens."

Tashard's favorites have been calling him. "Florida State, Florida, Pittsburgh, Auburn, Vanderbilt, Stanford, Duke, Boston College, Penn State, West Virginia, Virginia, Georgia Tech and Clemson have called. I know there is a lot more but those are off the top of my head."

Tashard did give me a list of his top schools. "Bama, Gegoria Tech, Auburn, Clemson, South Carolina and Vanderbilt are my top schools right now."

I asked Tashard if Notre Dame had called him yet. "They haven't called me yet but my coach says they have been calling him. He told me I should be getting a call very soon from them. I talked to Darin Mitchell the other day and he told me that they really like me. I will have to wait and see if they call."

Comments. Tashard is a great kid. He is probably the happiest kid I have talked to this year. He is always joking and laughing and just happy that people are taking an interest in him. I have no idea if he will be offered but he has a great attitude and that should take him far in life.
