James still considering ND

Notre Dame is still looking for a new head coach, and offensive lineman Matt James from St. Xavier High School (Cincinnati, Ohio) is still looking for a school. James is one of the top targets Notre Dame's wish list, and he's interested in seeing who the Irish hire.

Matt James (6-foot-7, 260-pounds) intended on taking a visit to Notre Dame for their annual football banquet last weekend, but those plans fell through. He'd still like to take an official visit to South Bend once the Irish make a decision on their new head coach.

"I'd eventually like to get there if things work out," James said when asked if he still had interest in the Irish. "I'll have to evaluate the situation after they get the coach. I can foresee (making a visit). I can't guarantee that. If they were going to hire a coach relatively soon and I could find time in my schedule; I'm planning on making my decision pretty late so I can see that."

In addition to Notre Dame, James is planning an official visit to Ohio State this weekend. The Florida Gators are scheduled to host James December 19. He is also considering Cincinnati, but Matt does not firm plan on an official visit for the Bearcats.
