Notre Dame was hoping to get a good look from Marcus Roberson (6-foot-0, 175-pounds), but over the past couple months, Roberson hasn't had much contact with the Irish staff.
"I haven't really talked to the coaches on the phone lately, so there isn't much of a relationship," Roberson said.
"Right now Auburn is my lead school and then I'd say Florida. I haven't been keeping in touch with anyone else really.
"Texas A&M is there also, but I haven't talked to them much lately," he said. "They were the first school to offer me, so they've been there from the beginning, so I feel they should be up there."
The Auburn Tigers made a big move with Roberson after he attended their summer football camp last weekend.
"It was a good feeling when I was there," Roberson said. "I don't think I'd mind waking up there for the next four years. I think that would be wonderful."
With a good feel for his top schools, Roberson might be ready to pull the trigger.
"It could come at any time, or I might wait a little," he said. "But I think I'll do it before the season."
