Defensive end recruit Bo Wallace will no longer be making his planned official visit to Notre Dame for Saturday's game against Michigan.

Wallace said late Tuesday night that he wouldn't be able to make the visit because of a conflict with his own schedule playing for River Ridge (La.) John Curtis. His team plays Friday night and has mandatory practice Saturday morning.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior said he plans to reschedule a visit to Notre Dame. The three-star prospect previously visited South Bend in June.

Notre Dame's need for Wallace remains high as it searches for defensive ends in the 2015 recruiting class. Only one of its 17 commitments, Micah Dew-Treadway, projects as a possible candidate to play defensive end. Some project Dew-Treadway as a better defensive tackle in college.

Rivals ranks Wallace as the nation's No. 27 outside linebacker in the 2015 recruiting class. 247Sports slates him No. 29 at the position.

The Irish will still host a number of official and unofficial visitors from the 2015, 2016 and 2017 recruiting classes this weekend. The expected visitors list is included in this NDInsider Premium story and will be in Friday's South Bend Tribune.
