Here in central PA, there's obviously no bigger name involved in college football recruiting than Noah Spence. Personally I've never seen a local kid catapault himself so far onto the top of all the myriad recruiting lists.
At any rate, the local paper ran a story about Noah's recruitment, quoting his father in the process. Among the notable tidbits:
- He is going to announce at the UnderArmour game, and no sooner
- He has built a strong rapport with Larry Johnson Sr, and thinks very highly of JoePa
- He is taking unofficial visits this weekend to North Carolina and NC State (I'm assuming this is mixed in with a family vacation or something)
- He has put together a short list of seven schools at this point
- And, sadly, there is no mention of UM at all in the article.
I've said it before, but I don't think this will happen for us, especially with all of the DE recruits we've already locked down. I'm hoping he'll at least save one of his official visits for us, perhaps for the ND game. I would love to see a change of heart, because he's the real deal, but I have a feeling he'll be lined up against us in a white helmet in the years to come.
