Notre Dame not only hosted some of the top senior recruits for their game against USC, but they also had a number of top juniors in town for the game. Doran Grant (5-foot-10, 170-pounds) was in attendance and he was impressed with the atmosphere surrounding the game.
"I was at the game," Grant said. "It was a great experience being at Notre Dame again. The crowd was amazing… the attendance was great. It was a hard fought game by Notre Dame.
"At first I was watching the defense and defensive backs and looking at the scheme and coverages that they played. As the game went on, I just I watched it as a fan, enjoying the game.
"I talked to coach Brown," he said. "He asked me how my game was the night before and things like that. The coaches really couldn't talk to us much because they a lot of recruits there and they were getting ready for the game."
Notre Dame offered Grant a scholarship last month and at this point he has offers from schools like Ohio State, Georgia, Michigan and Michigan State.
"I have 12 written scholarships now," Grant explained. "I want to keep adding to my offer list and then evaluate all the schools. I don't know what my top schools are yet, but Notre Dame will be there."
