Diamond Has Irish in His Top Group
"I'm talking to all the coaches at Notre Dame," Diamond said. "I've talked to coach Kelly on the phone and he came by the school. I think he came by last month."
The Irish are holding their first junior day of the year in just over the week. Although Diamond is one of Notre Dame's top recruiting targets for the 2012 class, he is going to wait to take a visit to South Bend until later in the spring.
"They said it would be better to come up sometime in the spring and get an individual visit with the coaches and meet some of the players," he said. "So, I think I'll get up there for the spring game or a spring practice.
"I do like Notre Dame. They're in my top five. They have great academics and great tradition.
"I notice them at the end of the season when they started making a little run," he said. "That run proved that they can be one of the top teams in the nation the nest couple of years. They showed that when they beat Miami."
The four other schools joining the Irish in Diamond's top-five are Michigan, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Iowa. He has already taken unofficial visits to Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa.
"Everyone in my top five is even right now," Jordan said. "I'm taking it one week at a time. I'm just trying to an idea right now. This is my first time doing this. I'm going to do my home work on each school. I just need to go out and visit the schools and see how it goes.
Diamond currently has scholarship offers from Notre Dame, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Arizona, Northwestern, Kansas and West Virginia.
