Rumors have been swirling that Youngstown (Ohio) Ursuline tight end Louis Irizarry might make his decision at the end of May. Things might have changed.
"That was my original intention," said the 6-foot-5, 235-pound standout. "When I went to Ohio State I really thought that was the place for me and I was sure I wanted to go there. Then I visited Notre Dame and it confused everything."
Irizarry, who scored seven touchdowns as a junior and has outstanding speed and agility, is now torn between the two.
"I wish I liked one better than the other because then I could get things over with," he said. "Right now it's the academics at Notre Dame against the academics and football of Ohio State. I might just wait and see how they do during this upcoming season now."
Irizarry has offers from both schools as well as Penn State, Maryland, Boston College, Michigan State and others. Another team is also entering into the battle.
"Florida called and said they're coming up this week," he said. "I'm pretty sure I want to stay around here to play football, but I also want to hear what Florida says."
The talented tight end excepts to camp at Ohio State this summer and once he feels comfortable with one team over the rest, he'll decide. Right now he doesn't see that happening anytime soon.
"I'm still hoping to decide early, but I realize there's no rush. In the beginning I was really pushing myself to commit to Ohio State early and just wanted to see some other schools. Now I'm leaning towards waiting."
