Mike Jones enjoys visit to Notre Dame

<P>Offensive line prospect Mike Jones returned my call last night and I was able to speak with him about his visit to Notre Dame. Mike enjoyed it but plans to take all 5 visits before deciding. </P>

"It was a great visit. I really enjoyed it. Dan Stevenson was my host and I really liked him. He showed me a great time and he did a good job of explaining about Notre Dame. He is from my area so we had a lot to talk about and I really enjoyed being around him."

Mike also spent some time with Coach Willingham and they talked for quite a while. "We talked for quite a while. He just re-emphasized how much they really want me and that they were willing to wait for me to decide." I asked Mike if he and Coach talked about where he would be playing. "They are recruiting me to play offensive tackle but I could play offensive guard as well."

Mike has Iowa this weekend. He visits Miami on December 20th. He plans to visit Michigan but hasn't finalized a date on that yet. He told me that he will take all 5 visits and decide shortly after his visits.

Mike has been to Notre Dame a number of times so I asked him if anything surprised him on his official visit. "Yeah, it was nice to be around the players. What surprised me was how enthusiastic all the players are about Coach Willingham and how much they want to win."

Comments. Each time I speak to Mike, I feel more confident that he will end up at Notre Dame. Dan Stevenson did a great job with him on his visit. Mike really seemed to enjoy his visit to Notre Dame.
