Charlie Weis Pays Justin Trattou A Visit

Notre Dame defensive end commit Justin Trattou threw Irish fans a curve ball when he visited Florida this past weekend. Charlie Weis was quick to visit Trattou, however, as he was seen on Don Bosco Prep’s campus Monday.


Defensive end Justin Trattou, who gave Notre Dame an oral commitment on a nationally televised stage from the ESPN Zone in Times Square in June, was down in Gainesville, Fla., last weekend to visit with the national champion Gators.

On Monday, Notre Dame head coach and Jersey native Charlie Weis was seen on Bosco’s campus, presumably to firm things up with Trattou.

Trattou is a huge recruit for Notre Dame this year and it’s not clear why he decided to visit Florida this late in the game. The uncertainty about what kind of defense the Irish will be running with new defensive coordinator Corwin Brown could have played a role in Trattou’s decision to visit.

If Notre Dame were to switch to a 3-4, Trattou could be concerned about where he would fit in. Still, the Irish should be fine here if for no other reason than because I don’t want to think about Notre Dame’s defensive recruiting class minus another defensive lineman.
