Princeton (N.J.) The Hun School offensive lineman Jeff Zuttah was most recently at Notre Dame's banquet weekend on an official visit. With one trip left, it's getting very close to decision time for the four-star guard.
"Notre Dame was cool," said the 6-foot-4, 276-pounder, who has been impressively low key and level-headed following each of his official visits. "Notre Dame is a special place and coach Willingham is a great person. Notre Dame combines great athletics and great academics so it's obviously of interest to me or anyone else."
Zuttah, who has also visited Florida State, Penn State and Boston College, was hosted by New Jersey native Anthony Fasano and hit it off with many of the players and recruits.
"You'd expect that Notre Dame brings in players and recruits that all take academics and football seriously," he said. "So I fit in well I think."
Michigan is his final visit this weekend (Dec. 13) and then a decision will follow by Christmas.
"Wherever I go, I'm enrolling in January so I need to decide soon," he said. "Right now I'm heading into my last visit with an open mind. After Michigan is done, I'll sit down and weigh everything out. It won't be easy."
