Zuttah remains interested in Irish

<P>Jeff Zuttah is a big guy. At 6-5, 280 pounds, Zuttah is known as a big guy who can move well. Zuttah has over 20 offers from some of the top schools in the country and he has also been offered by Notre Dame. </P>

Jeff's team hasn't quite had the season he had hoped for. "We are 1-2 right now but we should be 3-0. It's a mental thing and we are making mental mistakes so we are kind of hurting right now. I think we will get it turned around. I think I have been playing really well but it doesn't matter if you don't win. We just need to limit the mental mistakes."

Zuttah has been talking to a lot of head coaches but he has yet to set any visits. "I haven't set any visits yet. I will set them in October sometime. I will sit down with my coach and my family and decide but it will be my decision as to which schools I visit. I know I will visit Penn State for sure. I have been talking to them for a long time so I feel comfortable with them. The other schools I am just getting to know and to feel them out."

Jeff said he really had no idea which schools he would visit for sure but Michigan, Notre Dame, Stanford, Florida State, Colorado, Boston College and Maryland are all under consideration for visits at this time.

Jeff does know what he is looking for in a school. "Academics, athletics and then a strong atmosphere. I want to get along with the coaches but academics are the most important thing."

Comments. I think Jeff is pretty wide open at this point. Jeff said that he will take all 5 visits and should have a decision by early January. He wants to make his decision early but he cannot take any visits during the season because he plays his games on Saturdays. I am going to guess that he will visit Notre Dame but I don't think anything is set in stone yet.
