"He is real nervous," Bacon said. Kenneth Page will decide among Notre Dame, North Carolina, Clemson and Tennessee on Friday morning at 9 a.m. (EST). "When some recruits kind of know where they're going to go, they're kind of at ease. I thought when he came back from North Carolina (this weekend), he'd be at ease and know who'd be his leader. Well he doesn't, plus the fact that he has been bombarded these last few weeks with coaches trying to make their final pitches."
Notre Dame made its final pitch on Wednesday night. Assistant coaches Bill Lewis, John Latina and Michael Haywood all made the trip down to Columbia, S.C. They stopped by the 6-foot-4, 290-pound offensive lineman's school, and then they went by his home later in the evening.
"I texted him and said how did everything go," Bacon said. "He said it went really good."
Bacon didn't expect to see Page at school today. But sure enough, the kid with a 3.8 GPA was walking the halls early this morning.
"I expected him to take the day off and be here tomorrow. It's one of those situations where he is still figuring out where he wants to be. He said things went really good with the Notre Dame coaches.
"It's just a process, he has 24 hours now. He did not want to wait until National Signing Day."
