Earlier Saturday Aaron Lynch told some reporters that he planned on making a decision Saturday. Well, the star defensive end recruit did make a decision, but he still hasn’t selected the school he plans on attending.
Lynch reportedly texted Blue and Gold Illustrated that he officially decommitted from Florida State.
After meeting with coaches from the Seminoles staff and Notre Dame coaches, notably strong recruiter Tony Alford, also making the trip to San Antonio, Texas, the highly touted Island Coast High player first informed BlueandGold.com of his decision.
“I decommitted,” the 6-6, 245-pound player said via text.
Blue and Gold also reported that a visit to Notre Dame is now again likely.
You guys get all of that? This has been a whirlwind of a story this weekend. Friday morning Notre Dame fans had no idea that Lynch might still be in play for the Irish this year. Since then Lynch had planned on visiting next weekend, then he planned on meeting with the two coaching staffs and deciding where he would go tonight, and now he has officially decommitted from Florida State.
Right now, it’s anyone’s guess where this goes from here. There isn’t a scenario that would surprise me.
The fact that Lynch publicly decommitted from Florida State this close to the start of their semester, however, has to be considered good news for Notre Dame here.
Stay tuned, this one is far from over.
