According to a premium article on rivals, this kid was 'overwhelmed' by the ND offer. He was previously being recruited to Maryland by new graduate asst Brian White. ND didn't know about him, as he is surrounded by other star athletes on his h.s. team, but White brought him to ND's attention and they gave him his offer. According to another poster on GH, he's a stud who had 60 tackles and 9 picks as a jr. (the poster also said that he actually weighs 180 according to the local rags.)

Despite being under the radar, he has offers from some good schools, such as Virginia Tech and Texas Tech. But this kid could be an ND lean VERY soon. He couldn't believe that ND actually wanted him, and he will visit for the spring game, if not sooner. His parents were extremely excited as well. The kicker is that when he plays the NCAA Football video game, he chooses ND!

According to Rivals, premium story, I don't have access, sorry, but it leads to believe we're in very good position with this kid. Anyone have any info on him?

Corwin Brown is his recruiter... Corwin Brown is a closer.

CB has kept regular contact with him, creating a good relationship, unlike some of the the other schools to offer him, which have not kept in contact.

Well he's definitely not all-Irish, but I do like our chances too. He was on the Power Hour w/ Mike Frank just a few hours ago. He said that he will definitely be here for the spring game. He's also visiting Clemson's spring game. He's a late bloomer, but he's been tearing it up at camps, including a recent 7-on7 camp where he really shined, and other teams are starting to jump in on the kid. He said he can't wait to check out ND, and that he has a close relationship w/ Corwin Brown. Wants to go to a univ that is a winner, but one where he can compete for playing time early on. Also, he's going to check out the schools he's interested in now in the springtime, and then make a decision by the end of the summer...

That would be friggin' sweet. He's going to be rising up the charts (unless he commits to ND, in which all rising sems to stop!), so by the time his senior year ends he should be a lot higher on people's charts. He's only played football for over a year!

Clemson & USC in lead group for Amerson
By Phil Kornblut


Before you get excited read that headline again. Clemson and USC (the East Coast version South Carolina) aren't leading they're in Amerson's top 5 per Kornblut. That's a typical style Kornblut headline.


Per Kornblut almost 20 offers. Top 5 CL, SCA ND VT and NCS. He neglects to mention if there's any order. Other offers include DUK, WF, UMD, UNC, TT, SU, and WVU. Coaches have visited from CL SCA (notice those two consistently come first in Kornblut reporting. No, I don't like his style), SU, DUK, UMD, UNC, WF, VT, ND, WVU, LSU, and UGA.

Amersons plans to camp at ALA, LSU, and UTN.

I don't think Amerson has been on ND's campus. I'd really like to see him take a couple of days and journey to the midwest as opposed to camping with Saban, Miles, and Kiffin.

BGIF
06-07-2009, 06:59 AM
Amerson who has only played HS football for one season has added an offer from LSU.

60 Tackles/ 9 Interceptions in your first season, not too shabby.

06-07-2009, 03:25 PM
No he hasnt been to the campus yet but plans to visit over June 26th along with Moore and Preister. We are in his top 3 thanks entirely to the relationship he has built with Corwin, and that we got to him so early.

6/11 by Stan Olsen Charlotte Observer

Four favorites leaning VT, CL, NCS, ND. Heading to UNC this weekend. No hurry to make decision.

Most teams like me at corner now. Me being aggressive and physical has helped. I'd like to get out to LSU and maybe to TT, and SCA, and of course ND. And to Kentucky and Louisville. Places I've never been.

He confirmed that he's coming to ND on the 26th with his mom, and according to 2 different sites that I've read won't be afraid to commit if it feels right (nor will he rush his commitment if it's not a prefect match)...

According to Steve Wiltfong Amerson is trying really hard to get on campus, and if he doesn't get here in August he will definitely take on OV. He was going to commit to NC St. after a visit but his coach talked him out of out it, convincing him not to do it until he saw ND. Now Moore is on him about ND, and Coach Brown and him have formed a bond, so he won't commit anywhere until he has seen ND in person. He's very intrigued with ND and once we get him on campus out stock will rise even more with him. This will be a ND/NC St battle, and if he's willing to leave home I think he'll be Irish (that is, if there is still a spot in the secondary for him)...

Yeah you saw this alot with the 08 class with guys like Dayne crist and sean Cwyner really bringing the class together and helping recruit each other. This class may not be as good as that 08 class but witht he amount of players still looking at us the 10 class could be Weis's best defensive haul yet.

Took a long time

Amerson said he had a great visist got to hand out with Blanton and the other recruits and really got along great with everyone. Got to meet up with Brown and discuss how much ND needs him and can use him. His parents had a great time and really enjoyed meeting Brown and Weis.

Amerson has no other visits currently set up but plans to see NC State once more before deciding

it would be Notre Dame. He said that he loved the visit, and he wants to be 100% before he chooses

It's real, real, real close. If I had to give an edge, I'd probably say Notre Dame. I loved the visit. But before I pull the trigger or anything like that, I want to be 100-percent sure.


NCS #2 followed by Clemson and VT.

He's not sure if he'll make any other officals. Early PT is a factor.

David Amerson Ė The free safety from North Carolina has waffled between North Carolina State and Notre Dame for a while. Just my guess, but I say he pulls the trigger before December, for Notre Dame. Maybe Iím way off, but thatís what my gut tells me.
