Edwards losing interest in ND

<P>Cincinnati prospect Ray Edwards was a hot name for the Irish for a while. He has since cooled on Notre Dame. Why is Notre Dame slipping? </P>

Ray Edwards had been interested in Notre Dame but that interest has been slipping late. Last time I spoke with Ray, he told me that Notre Dame was slipping because he was told he was their #4 defensive end prospect by someone else.

I asked Ray if he had set up any visits yet. "Yeah, I have already been to Purdue. I have Boston College this weekend, I visit Ohio State on December 6th and Tennessee on December 13th. I don't know if I will take my fifth visit or not."

"I asked Ray what happened to Notre Dame. "I talked to their coach and we got that whole thing worked out. He said Notre Dame doesn't have me ranked as their #4 defensive end prospect. I am still interested a little bit. Academics are important to me and I am not sure I will do very well there academically."

Ray did say he might still visit Notre Dame. "I might use my last visit to go to Notre Dame. I am just not sure about that."

Comments. I can't remember too many times where Notre Dame was leading and fell completely off the radar. I know Ray needed a test score so maybe that is the situation. Stay tuned.
