ESPN 150 CB Poole not looking around

1/30/2012

Under Armour All-America cornerback Brian Poole (Bradenton, Fla.) has been heavily recruited by Notre Dame and even had a in-home visit from Brian Kelly last week.

But the 82nd-ranked prospect in the nation wants to make it clear, he's all Gator.

"Notre Dame has continued to come at me pretty hard but on Wednesday I'm signing with Florida," Poole said. "There's no secret to that."

The Irish have been looking for another top-flight cornerback since Maryland prospect Ronald Darby decommitted three weeks ago. Notre Dame was also forced to back off of New Jersey prospect Yuri Wright after he was dismissed from Don Bosco Prep. Wright recently committed to Colorado.

Poole took an official visit to Notre Dame several months ago.

"Everyone's going to recruiting whoever they want to recruit but my mind was made up a long time ago," Poole added.
