Rabasa Will Take a Look at ND

On Wednesday, Anthony Rabasa will head to Notre Dame for an unofficial visit. The linebacker from Christopher Columbus High School (Miami, Fla.) doesn't have an official offer from the Irish, but is hoping to land one before he leaves town.

Notre Dame has been recruiting Anthony Rabasa (6-foot-3, 215-pounds) since early in the spring, but they have yet to extend an offer to the linebacker. Nonetheless, Rabasa wanted to get a look at the Notre Dame campus and he'll do that this week.

"I'm leaving Wednesday," Rabasa said. "We've talked a lot and they're definitely excited to have me up there, so they can show me the school. They're going to show me how I fit in their scheme and let me know what they're looking for in a player. I think I'll definitely get that offer.

"I'd love to get in (Notre Dame) stadium and get on the field and see how it feels. I'm pretty excited to get up there and see everything. I want to see the weight room and all the facilities. I'm pretty excited to see Touchdown Jesus and the whole campus. It's going to be a big thing and I'm pretty excited."

Last weekend Rabasa made a trip to Florida for Friday Night Lights. The Florida football camp draws some of the top talent from around the country and Anthony was pleased with his performance.

"I had a great time," Rabasa said. "I did excellent in the drills, and the one-on-ones. I dominated the whole time, so I feel pretty good about it.

"Playing in South Florida and playing in one of the best football states in the country, I go up against great competition, but it was great going against some on the best kids in the nation. I think I impressed going up against the best of the best."

Rabasa has narrowed his list of schools down to Florida, Florida State, Miami, LSU, UCLA, and Notre Dame.
