ND Insider: What made you want to schedule another visit to Notre Dame?

Devin Studstill: "I was at the Irish Invasion, and I had a great time up there, so I wanted to come up again to see what Notre Dame is like on a game day."

NDI: What about Notre Dame has kept you interested?

Studstill: "Notre Dame's just so hard to turn down. They offer so much. Notre Dame's first class all the way around. It's hard to turn down a school like that."

NDI: How much have you watched Notre Dame this season?

Studstill: "I've watched every game."

NDI: What have you seen from the Notre Dame defense?

Studstill: "I've seen a lot of great things from the defense. I've been specifically watching their safeties play. They do a lot of good things with their safeties. I feel like I can fit in no matter where I go."

NDI: What do you think will separate one school from another when you decide to commit?

Studstill: "I already pretty much know everything about the schools I'm considering. I don't know. I'm just waiting and trying to see what happens. It's a tough decision. I'll know when I know."

NDI: When do you plan to commit?

Studstill: "I'm graduating early so I should commit by December."

NDI: How much have you talked to former teammate Te'von Coney about Notre Dame?

Studstill: "I've been talking to Te'von a lot. He said he made the best decision of his life by going to Notre Dame."
