Stone Bridge (Ashburn, VA) star Andrew Nuss did make his much anticipated unofficial visit to Notre Dame this past weekend. We caught up with Andrew to discuss the experience as well as his performance in the one day combine, which could determine whether or not the Irish extend an official scholarship offer.

“I was awestruck, pretty much,” Nuss said of the experience in South Bend. “You walk through the new building that’s only been there about a year. There is all the history right there, with the four horsemen and the championships and everything. It was just amazing.”

Nuss was also impressed with head coach Charlie Weis, but perhaps for different reason than you’d think.

“After hearing coach Weis, I’d have to say he’s a pretty straightforward guy,” Nuss said. “He’s really boring, but not in a bad way. He’s just like, ‘it’s Notre Dame. It’s amazing.’ I was like, ‘all right’ (laughs).”

So Nuss enjoyed his visit, but how did Saturday’s combine go?

“I did really good. I got a personal best in a couple of things,” Nuss said. “We did the 40, pro agility, height, weight and vertical. I posted a 4.69 in the pro agility (shuttle) and then I got 29.5 inches in the vertical. We didn’t do one-on-one drills because coach Weis doesn’t like to do those without padding. We did all the drills they do without pads and I think I did pretty good.”

As for a possible offer from Notre Dame, Nuss said “I felt really confident and the coach said I did really good, so I’m just waiting on them I guess. They just said to be patient.”

The 6-6, 285-pound Nuss has wanted to make a decision on a college during the summer. Could Notre Dame cause him to delay his decision into the fall?

“I think I’m still going to wait until middle or late summer,” Nuss said. “Notre Dame does affect it but, and I don’t want to sound like there was anything wrong because it was amazing, I have some great schools to choose from right now. If Notre Dame would offer me, I’d really take them into consideration.”

In our interview last week, Nuss named a top four group of Georgia, Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Last night, Nuss wanted to reiterate that he is open to any school that offers him. He did admit to having a favorite right now, but didn’t mention which program is on top.

“I’m keeping it open
