Dallas (Texas) Bishop Dunne three-star defensive back Payton Hendrix is preparing to make some decisions.
Over the course of the recruiting process he has seen offers come from near and far, and has already taken an official visit to Notre Dame. The next couple of weeks he plans to take a couple of more.
"I have a visit to Texas Tech this weekend and then next weekend I have a visit to Arkansas," Hendrix said.

There are also a few other possibilities for official visits.
"I haven't decided yet, but I guess you could say Texas Tech, Arkansas, Notre Dame, and I'm considering Wake Forest and probably Tulsa or Utah, one of those, if I take all five to finish off my five official visits," Hendrix said.
In addition to his travel plans, Hendrix also has a busy in-home visit schedule this week.
"Arkansas came yesterday, Texas Tech came today, Notre Dame is coming tomorrow, and Wake Forest is coming on Wednesday," Hendrix said.
He also has a few schools standing out at this point.
"Out of those six it's probably Arkansas, Texas Tech, and Notre Dame who are probably my standouts right now," Hendrix said.
He lists them in no particular order and sees plenty to like about each program.
"Arkansas, it's an SEC school," Hendrix said. "I have the possibility to play early in the SEC, which is pretty big. My cousin Keaton Miles goes there so that's a plus. And it's not too far from home and things like that.
"Texas Tech, the early playing time I really like that. It's in Texas, it's an in-state school. It's not too far from home but it's far enough. It's in the Big 12 and the Big 12 puts out receivers so I'll be playing against the top receivers day in and day out. And I really like their coaches and I think their coaching staff has a good vision in trying to turn the Texas Tech program around.
"Notre Dame is a big time program. They have a lot of history at Notre Dame. I have a possibility to compete for early playing time up there as well. Academically Notre Dame is the best of the three. My teammate Nick (Watkins) committed up there and he's a DB as well so that's a plus. I'd be playing with him again if I chose to go there."
With three current standouts, Hendrix hopes to make his decision in the next month or so and get the recruiting process wrapped up before signing day.
"I don't want to wait all the way until signing day," Hendrix said. "I want to know where I'm going to school and be comfortable in my decision."
