Springmann Will Be at ND Next Weekend

Notre Dame has a couple players on it's roster from Bishop Dwenger High School (Fort Wayne, Ind.) and there are a couple of juniors that they have their eye on, one of them being offensive tackle Tony Springmann.

Tony Springmann (6-foot-7, 265-pounds) has been to Notre Dame on a number of occasions so there isn't a lot that he doesn't know about the Irish football program. One thing he would like to find out more about is the new Notre Dame coaching staff, and he's hoping to get that chance in a week.

"I haven't talked to anyone from Notre Dame yet, but I've received a letter about their junior day, and I am planning on going to that," Springmann said. "I know plenty about Notre Dame football and the history behind the school. I haven't been in contact with the new coaches, so I just want to get to know them and figure out where I stand and see if I should move on or if I should still keep them in the picture."

Although Springmann doesn't have an offer from Notre Dame, he does hold offers from Indiana, Purdue, Michigan State, Duke, Wake Forest, Minnesota, Stanford, Boston College, and Louisville. Clemson, Tennessee, and Georgia are also showing considerable interest in him as well.

"This spring my parents and I are going to see Wake Forest and Duke," Springmann said. "This summer I'll possibly see Boston College, Stanford and Harvard.

"The schools that I was looking at have offered, so I have been considering going to camps at other schools and showing them what I can do, to see if they will offer."
