Hord back from Wisconsin

Four-star Kansas City receiver took official trip to Wisconsin this weekend

D.J. Hord, a four-star receiver from Rockhurst HS in Kansas City, Mo., took an official visit to Wisconsin over the Dec. 17 weekend.

"I liked it. It was nice. They have a nice campus and the players made me feel like they've known me forever," Hord said.

We asked Hord if he felt like Wisconsin was a school he could see himself at.

"Possibly, I liked it there," he said. "The weather was kind of harsh, but it wasn't that bad. I had a good weekend there. I like it a lot."

Hord also had an in-home visit with Notre Dame this past week.

"That went very well," Hord said. "It was very informative. He said they really needed some skills guys there at Notre Dame. We talked about the education, and what the daily schedule was like there. He said that coach Weis would meet with the old staff on Friday and see who wanted to stay and then fill out his coaching staff from there."

The Irish continue to be high on Hord's list.

"I'm just kind of waiting to see who their wide receiver coach is going to be," Hord said. "I want to talk to him and see what is going on. I like everything else about Notre Dame."

Hord said he still plans to take an official visit to Notre Dame.

"I'm hoping to take my visit there in the first two weeks of January," he said. "Then I'll probably have to wait to take my LSU visit."

The Kansas City native is not sure he will take an official to LSU.

"I might want to make my decision before then," Hord said. "I don't know if I'll take that visit or not."
