According to sources, the Notre Dame coaching staff will hit the recruiting trail once again this week and there won’t be a bigger visit over the next five days than the one that will occur on Monday.
Per Irish Illustrated and 247Sports sources, Fighting Irish defensive coordinator Clark Lea and special teams coordinator Brian Polian are expected to make their way to Carlsbad, Calif., for an in-home visit with four-star linebacker Asa Turner. This is a huge visit, as the 6-4, 200-pounder is one of a handful of prospects still on Notre Dame’s board in the class of 2019.
When looking at the recruitment of the Carlsbad high school standout, this is a Notre Dame-Washington. Despite other schools trying to enter the mix with late offers, no school has been able to compete with the Fighting Irish and Huskies when it comes to Turner’s final decision. A commitment is expected at anytime and is actually likely to come before National Signing Day in February.
Turner is one of the most talented prospects in the country. After a solid week in San Antonio for the All-American Bowl, he spent the last week in Hawaii at the Polynesian Bowl. He totaled three tackles and an interception during the game. He showed great speed, a knack for to find himself around the ball, the ability to close on the football, terrific range, and the talent to play all over the field.
Coming out of these two All-American games, the latest Buzz is very pro-Notre Dame and sources are feeling good about the chances for the Fighting Irish, but until he announces his final decision on Twitter, it’s anyone’s guess.
