Dominique Noble (6-foot-1, 185-pounds) had wanted to take an unofficial visit to Notre Dame, but with the beginning of fall practice around the corner, it is unlikely that he'll be able to get to South Bend.
"They're in my top three," Noble said of Notre Dame. "I really don't know too much about Notre Dame. I haven't talked to coach Elston in a couple weeks, but I've emailed him a couple times.
"I want to get up there real soon, but I'm not sure I can do that yet, as far as time. I want to, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get there. If I can it would be for an official visit, but I do want to get up there."
Noble does intend to visit the other schools in his top-three next week, Georgia Tech and Penn State. He named Georgia Tech as his leader with Penn State as his No. 2.
"Penn State, I'm going up there Tuesday," he said. "I'm driving up with my coach and a couple players.
"I'm really liking Georgia Tech. I go up there Thursday and Friday with my mom. If I love it, I might do it(commit) right there."
Noble has been considering making his announcement before the start of his senior season, but as he admitted, his recruitment could come to an end next week.
"It's a 50/50 type thing right now," Noble said. "If I go up to Penn State and Georgia Tech next week and I love it, it (his decision) might be sooner. If not I'll take my time."
