DE/OLB Josh Shirley ... USC, UCLA, UTN and a few others appear to have an edge. ...

Possibly, we could be in that "a few others" catagory. But not being mentioned does make it seem like we are a step down from USC, UCLA, and Tenn.

Your right, we are in that few others category. Recently told blueandgold.com that he "definately" wants to see ND. There is always a good chance if we get them on campus, and this kid is a freaking beast. Link below, premium required, but the top of it is self explanatory. I dont have a premium subscription either, so no i cant sum it up.

He's set to cut his list to a top 10, and he said that ND is 'safe'. So are USC and UCLA. Also said that since he's already visited many of the west coast schools, ND should be in line to get an OV...

9/24, per Greg Biggins ESPN


Athlete Josh Shirley (Fontana, Calif./Kaiser) took an official visit to Washington last weekend and was one of the many who rushed the field after the Huskies' big upset win over USC.
"It was a pretty incredible atmosphere," Shirley said. "By the end of the game when they were driving, things were just getting crazier and crazier and then all of a sudden, we were all on the field. I was surprised by the outcome to be honest. I knew coach [Steve Sakesian] and that staff would be able to turn things around but I didn't think they would be able to do it this quickly.
"As for the rest of the trip, I had a real good time. I got along great with the players and everyone is really buying in to what the coaches are saying. They have a nice campus and the city of Seattle is pretty nice as well. I was comfortable with everyone and the coaches make you feel like part of the team already. I would say Washington is definitely high on my list and will be in it until the very end."
Heading into the trip, Shirley had the two local schools, UCLA and USC, as his co-leaders and that still appears to be the case.
"Yeah, that hasn't changed," Shirley said. "Washington was real cool, but I still like those two the most. It's close to home and I know the coaches so well. I'm going to take my other visits though although I don't have any set up at the moment.
"I still have Arizona, Tennessee, Miami and Notre Dame as the others I want to visit and then unofficial visits to Cal, USC and UCLA. I'm going to try and do a couple more during the season if I can and the rest will be after the season is over.

Kid looks like a stud on film, would love to have his tenacity on defense. Looks like an uphill battle, however, he will be on campus. Always a good sign.

I had no idea we had any chance with him, maybe the Polian news hadn't reached him yet. But he says "I'm deciding between Miami, Notre Dame, Cal, Tennessee, USC and UCLA."

Anyone know more?

He is a big-time player, and I have heard (could be bs but it's always worth posting) that USC does not feel like he is going to stay in-state which is why they are putting the full-court press on Jordan Zumwalt, a long-time Stanford commit. I am interested to see how this plays out. The kid is athletic as hell.

Not likely.

Shirley will be making his decision late based on his final 3 of Tenn,U$C,and Washington.

Don't listen to champen, errrrrr, stevekragenthorpe. errrrr, whatever he is calling himself today, he is a (name redacted before I have to give myself an infraction LOL). He doesn't know what he's talking about. Shirley told the SC guys he has a top 4, not a top 3, and that he's looking to make one more visit (I don't have a subscription to the SC site, but he told them a couple of days ago)...

No to what part?

We are out of it, yet not. It's Miami, USC, Arizona and Washington

1/12 Per Greg Biggins ESPN


"I don't have any plans for visits over these next two weeks," Shirley said. "I've actually talked with Notre Dame a little and could take a visit there on [Jan. 22]. They're not quite in my top four right now but I'm listening to them and they want me to visit out there so we'll see if that happens."


Coaching change won't stop LB Shirley from considering USC - ESPN (http://insider.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?entryID=4818502&name=West_Recruiting&action=login&appRedirect=http%3a%2f%2finsider.espn.go.com%2fesp n%2fblog%2findex%3fentryID%3d4818502%26name%3dWest _Recruiting)
