Erik McKinney/WeAreSC.comChris Hawkins is still committed to USC, but his father says he was 'wowed' by his Notre Dame visit.An enjoyable official visit to Notre Dame over the weekend didn't sway four-star cornerback Chris Hawkins (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif./Rancho Cucamonga) from his commitment to USC, but it has definitely created an unforeseen obstacle for the Trojans.
Armond Hawkins Sr., Chris' father, said his son was thoroughly wowed by the South Bend, Ind., campus, the pageantry at Notre Dame Stadium and the atmosphere following the Fighting Irish's thrilling 20-13 overtime victory against Stanford.
"It was super late (Sunday) night, and I had to be at work at 4:30 a.m. Chris came into the room and shook me up," Armond said. "He told me what was going on. We talked briefly and he was very excited. They wowed him and [fellow USC commit] Max Redfield out there. I didn't think that would happen."
