Will Courtney Garnett Sign with OU on National Signing Day?

New Orleans defensive lineman (Courtney Garnett) visited Notre Dame over the weekend. There's even a photo of him wearing a green Irish jersey in the ND locker room.

Now, Garnett might still wind up signing with OU Wednesday. He isn't the first recruit to take advantage of his allowable official visits, even after committing to a program. Would you pass up a free trip to South Bend if you were a high school hotshot? Right.

Still, by Bob Stoops' definition, the Sooners can no longer consider Garnett in their hip pocket. Here's what the OU coach has said of prospects who take visits even after giving their word to a program: 

"He's not committed if he's taking visits. And we tell him that. Then we say, 'Well, if that's the case then you're not committed to us.' We don't accept that commitment. We'll keep recruiting guys at your position. You're kidding yourself if you think that's a commitment. (Tulsa World)
