FIGHT ON! FOREVER!
Winning the academic award in the SEC is sort of like winning the special olympics. Even if you win, you are still a retard.

From TOS-E, the rest of article is insider:
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."
Not what I like to see =(

Maybe that new acc scheduling is exciting too them. Never play for a natty and play a bunch of acc and big 10 teams.......what kid wouldn't want to fade away in college football obscurity.

Not VIP so can't see Scott's take but I can't see Hawkins decommitting. If playing for SC was his lifelong dream, like he's always said, there's NO WAY you give that up just because you had a fun weekend somewhere else.
Notre Dame is a great place to visit for a WEEKEND, especially when it's a big game, but living there for 4 years is completely different. I'm sure once Chris and Max get off the high of the visit they'll realise that. It's not like ND can offer them anything SC can't. SC is not some SEC school with crappy academics, an SC degree is just as valuable as an ND one, especially if these kids want to live in California once they're done with football (which I'd guess they probably do). SC can offer everything ND can, plus more.
The one thing that does worry me a little bit about Max is the fact he's not going to the Army Game with so many of the other SC guys. If he was, I would be all the more confident in him sticking with SC, as I think being around the fellow commits all week would have locked him up completely. Hopefully it doesn't matter though.
