Ramsey (N.J.) Oradell offensive tackle Brian Roche has taken two official visits so far -- to Michigan State and Louisville. He has his third trip set for Jan. 14 to NC State and set up his fourth just last evening. So who will he be visiting?
"I'm going to Notre Dame on Jan. 28," said the 6-foot-4, 275-pounder. "I just met with coach Weis for around three hours and I really liked him. He was down-to-earth and seems to be a great guy. I've always been interested in Notre Dame so now I can take a look."
Roche has company as well as Weis was in New Jersey on Monday to speak to Brian Cushing, James Dray and Darius Mann as well.
"I'm not sure if all of us are going to visit, but I know I am," said the No. 20 offensive tackle in the nation. "That will be my last visit. I still want to take all five so I'm going to set something up for Jan. 21. It will be to either Stanford, UConn, Virginia Tech or Florida."
Roche has offers from all the schools he lists. He had been committed to Rutgers during the summer and through the football season. Are the Scarlet Knights still in the mix?
"I don't think I'm looking in that direction anymore," he said. "I really respect the coaches and the program, but I don't think it's a fit for me."
Roche will make his decision near Letter of Intent Day.
