Top 2020 OL Hopes To Return To Notre Dame

March 15, 2018

Jake Wray‍ hasn’t heard a ton from Notre Dame since he visited South Bend back in October, but the 2020 offensive lineman remains seriously interested.

The 6-foot-5, 290-pounder said he stays in touch with Notre Dame “as much as I can,” but added there’s been a pause in communication since Jeff Quinn’s replacement of Harry Hiestand as offensive line coach.

“I was in contact with Coach Hiestand, but now that he’s gone, I haven’t heard anything from Coach Quinn,” Wray said.

Wray also acknowledged that NCAA restrictions on colleges contacting underclassmen make things more challenging.

“It’s not like they can text me and say, ‘Hey, what’s up man?’” he said.

Wray landed a scholarship offer during that visit to South Bend in the fall and it’s a school he keeps in high regard.

“You think of Notre Dame and you think of football excellence,” he said. “They’ve always been a great football team with incredible traditions. It’s definitely one of the best traditional schools. It’s just an all-around good place.”

He’d welcome the chance to make another visit in the future.

“Yeah, for sure,” he said.

In addition to Notre Dame, Wray has offers from schools like Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Florida, Miami, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas and Oregon among others.

He’s recently taken visits to Clemson and LSU, but doesn’t have anything else set up at the moment.

Since the fall, he’s moved from Franklin, Tenn., to Marietta, Ga., where he’s now attending school.

“It’s awesome. It’s great being here.”
