If you follow the Notre Dame coaching staff on Twitter, it’s not hard to figure out where the majority of the Irish offensive staff is today.  They are in Georgia in numbers to visit with 5-star wide receiver Demetris Robertson in hopes of continuing their  progress towards finding a Will Fuller replacement.

Here’s a quick sampling of some tweets sent out by the Irish coaching staff over the last few hours:

Notre Dame has just one prospect for the class of 2016 from the state of Georgia on its radar.  And that is Demetris Robertson.

Things have been looping better and better for Notre Dame in their pursuit of Robertson for the last month and today will be a pivotal moment in their recruitment of the speedy, 5 star receiver.  The Irish still have Alabama, Georgia, Stanford, and Georgia Tech to contend with still, but the 247Sports Crystal Ball has had a number of Notre Dame predictions come in over the last few days – including a few from Georgia reporters.

Even with a perfect in-home visit today, a commitment is not expected as Robertson plans on announcing his decision on National Signing Day, but if the Irish can knock today’s in-home with Robertson out of the park like they did with Ben Davis’s official visit this past weekend, they can set themselves up nicely to have some of the best Signing Day news they’ve had in a few years.

With the contingent of coaches visiting Robertson today, the Irish have their heavy hitters.  Autry Denson has been impressing on the recruiting trail left and right pretty much since being hired by Notre Dame.  Mike Sanford has been every bit of the young, energetic recruiter that we all hoped he would be.  And then there’s head man Brian Kelly.  Hopefully Notre Dame’s timing of Kelly’s in-home visit is meant capitalize on the momentum the Irish have built up and is used at the right time with still over two weeks remaining until Signing Day.

Sit tight Notre Dame fans, it looks like we are going to have a fun couple of weeks and if things continue to trend as they are with Robertson, Notre Dame just might have some good news on Signing Day this year.
