THE FINALISTS

Here is a look at the finalists for Flores.

Notre Dame - “Notre Dame, there is just great people there. It’s not a four-year plan. It is a 40-year plan. You have great connections when you get done with football and they have big connections in California too, like a lot of alumni. They have big businesses and things like that.”

Ohio State - “I love everything about Ohio State, from Coach (Brian) Hartline, Coach (Ryan) Day, Coach Wilson … everybody. They feel welcoming. When I went there, they brought me in with open arms.”

Georgia - “Georgia, shoot I just like how they get gritty down there. They show that oomph and you know you need to work. It is all about grind down there. Not saying the other two aren’t but it’s the South. It is just how they roll and their persona is.”
