Thaddeus Snodgrass updates timeframe

ESPN Watch List receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass (Springfield, Ohio/Springfield) announced Monday he made a decision regarding his college choice and is ready to announce publicly. The details of the announcement are starting to clear up.

Snodgrass told ESPN.com on Tuesday evening he will make a commitment either Nov. 2 or Nov. 5.

He will make an unofficial visit to Notre Dame sometime next week before his announcement. He originally planned to visit Notre Dame for its game Nov. 3 against Pittsburgh but now would like to visit earlier. The visit for the Pitt game is now contingent on whether Snodgrass commits on Nov. 2 and who he ultimately commits to.

"I want to see how the academics are -- I already know how they are -- and also see how the players and classes are," Snodgrass said of his Notre Dame midweek visit.

Along with Ohio State, the Fighting Irish are one of the favorites to land the 6-foot, 174-pound receiver. Snodgrass plans to release his finalists following his Notre Dame visit.

The announcement will take place at Springfield High School.
