Arie Kouandjio (6-foot-6, 320 pounds) hasn't taken the time to thoroughly evaluate his college options, but Notre Dame appears to be in the mix.
"I've been talking to them a lot and everything is going pretty well as far as my relationship with Notre Dame," Kouandjio said. "Right now, I've been talking to coach Powlus a lot. I like talking to the coaches. I like the tradition and I still talk to Lane Clelland, and I basically like everything around there. So I'll be looking forward to checking everything out if I do go to Notre Dame (for a visit).
"From what I've heard from coach Powlus, or seeing stuff on TV, they've been doing pretty well. That's definitely a bonus. I follow college football, but a lot of my games have been on Saturdays. When they aren't on Saturday I'm probably taking a break from football."
Notre Dame wanted Kouandjio to take an official visit during the fall, but he has put recruiting on the backburner until he finishes his senior season at DeMatha.
"I've had an opportunity to visit Notre Dame," Kouandjio said. "Right now I'm not really into recruiting, so I haven't been thinking about it that much. I'll probably take (my official visits) after my season. I'll take all of my visits before I make my decision.
"I'm not thinking about (scheduling visits) yet. Right now I'm just playing football. I don't have any favorites or particular order (of schools).
"We're 8-0," he said. "We're really working hard and trying to get better every day and we fight every day for each other. We have two more regular season games and then championship game is November 21."
Visits will wait for Kouandjio
