Recruiting continues to heat up at a torrid pace for Greg Miclisse.
“Recent offers I picked up are Texas, Nebraska, Utah and Tennessee,” said the 2014 Florida linebacker, who also has offers from schools like South Carolina, Louisville, Washington and Wake Forest among others after getting his first offer last month.
“It’s just a blessing to me because there are some athletes that really want to be in my position right now. I’m just blessed for everything I have, which is why I work hard to prove to everybody why I have these offers.”
The 6-foot-1, 235-pounder from Bayside High School in Palm, Fla., says that coaches have been impressed with his film.
“The coaches say I’m very explosive and I have a knack for the ball,” he said. “That’s what they say every time they see my film.”
Miclisse has been hitting the road recently and is making a pair of trips this week.
“I’m going to LSU and I’m going to Louisiana-Lafayette,” he said. “When I come back, I’m taking three visits in two days to Louisville, Cincinnati and Tennessee.”
Miclisse has never been shy to talk about growing up a Notre Dame fan and an offer from the Irish could end up being a gamechanger for his recruitment. Tony Alford has been in touch and a plan is in place to get Miclisse to South Bend in the next few months.
“I’ve talked with Coach Alford recently,” said Miclisse. “He’s been telling me that they really like me and really want me at linebacker, but he said they’re only taking three linebackers this year for the 2014 class. He told me that he wants to see me in person and take me through the drills.
“I’m going up there for three days in June. I’m going to spend time with the coaches, that’s what he told me.”
Miclisse is excited for his chance to prove himself to the Irish coaches at Notre Dame’s camp this summer.
“That’s going to be like a dream come true,” he said. “I’ve been waiting on this opportunity since I was a little boy growing up a Notre Dame fan. Knowing that Notre Dame really wants me up there for a visit to see how the school is and see the coaches in person, I’m very excited.”
