Notre Dame pulls out semi truck for WR Demetris Robertson

The bigger the vehicle, the bigger the impression?

That was certainly the strategy for Notre Dame assistant coaches Mike Sanford, Mike Denbrock and Mike Elston, who pulled up to five-star wide receiver Demetris Robertson's house for the program's final in-home visit on Thursday in a massive 18-wheel Notre Dame equipment truck.

Robertson — a 6-foot, 180-pound wide receiver and U.S. Army All-American — will chose between Notre Dame, Stanford, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Alabama, though his recruitment may stretch past signing day.

Even in Savannah, Ga., it seems, the Irish travel in style.

Notre Dame outside my house; we have a surprise for SCPS too!!
