Jimmy Byrne (Cleveland, Ohio/St. Ignatius) said Notre Dame set the bar high after his unofficial visit last week. This week, the 6-foot-4, 275-pound offensive tackle said he’s not sure how Ohio State can equal the experience of what the Fighting Irish gave him, but he’s not ruling out the Buckeyes.

“I don’t know exactly how they would [equal it],” Byrne said. “I do think Coach [Ed] Warinner is a great coach as well.

“Right now it’s real tight with Ohio State. I’d like to see the game day atmosphere. It’s just hard with the schedule right now.”
