    Don’t worry, he’s the biggest moron on the hoop. It’s practically a compliment.

    Cam Hart a three star WR out of Maryland committed to Notre Dame. He's 6'3" tall and 190 lbs some schools wanted him to play CB.

    I'm a little surprised that ESPN has a higher rating on many of Notre Dame's recruits right now with nearly all four star players including Cam Hart. They only have three guys rated loser than four stars one being the punter.

    Some say he was still visiting schools (which pissed people off), others said that it might be grades. In any event, it appears that he is gone.

    Well that stinks but with him planning on visiting some other schools I'm not overly surprised.

    I've also heard that him being undersized played a part but Notre Dame were the ones that broke it off which is too bad if a kid want to play for them and they had offered him a scholarship but it is what it is.

    His tweet announcing his commitment went on to state that he was going to continue to make official visits to several other schools, to ensure that selecting ND was the best choice. That seems like a very weak commitment, bordering on no commitment. ND has been burned in the past by guys making a verbal commitment and then backing out. If he’s not really committed, holding a spot for him might result in passing on a guy who really does want to go to ND. If he’s still interested in ND after he completes his other official visits, and ND has not filled the class, maybe there will still be a spot for him, but if he’s still looking around, why shouldn’t ND be looking around.

    he later tweeted that he wasn't taking any other official visits I believe. I think it ended up being more of a fit issue and at least they moved on early rather than waiting until the process was nearly over. I just hate to see talented kids get left out but I'm just a fan.

    I heard that, but I never saw his tweet stating that he was no longer taking any visits. Hopefully it isn’t just a case of ND changing their mind on the guy.

    It would kind of seem that way but they have also had a fair number of players commit since his offer so numbers wise they may not have room for a player with is size and skill set.

    Kyle Hamilton and Andrew Kristofic both moved up over 200 spots on the latest 247 recruiting rankings. Both are now 4 stars.
