The wild ride that is the recruitment of Aaron Lynch could be coming to a close tonight according to several reports that the star defensive end will now meet with coaches from both Florida State and Notre Dame tonight and then make a final decision.
Just yesterday Lynch opened his recruiting back up and said he planned to visit Notre Dame next weekend. A little over 24 hours later, his plans have changed again with a decision possibly coming tonight according to reports from Irish Sports Daily and Eric Hansen of the South Bend Tribune.
Based on the way Lynch’s recruitment has unfolded, nothing should come as a surprise right now and it’s anyone’s guess how this plays out. The only thing we know for sure right now is that Lynch plans on deciding tonight.
Earlier today Lynch teamed up with Notre Dame commitment Stephon Tuitt to help the East squad dominate the line of scrimmage in the Army All American Bowl in San Antonio.
Notre Dame fans now must hope that Lynch enjoyed playing opposite Tuitt more than he enjoyed playing in the 4-3 defense. One of the biggest concerns for Lynch in regards to Notre Dame has been playing in a 3-4 defense versus playing in Florida State’s 4-3.
In other Notre Dame recruiting news, Ishaq Williams decided to delay his decision and did not commit anywhere on Saturday. He had previously planned on making his commitment during the game. Notre Dame, Syracuse, and Penn State are the reported finalists for Williams.
Earlier today I posted an article about the number of available scholarships left this year. Lynch’s decision tonight will impact how those scholarships are used.
