Notre Dame drops in on running back recruit Tarean Folston

Tarean Folston - Bud Elliott (SB Nation)

Folston is high on Notre Dame's running back board.

How important of a target is running back Tarean Folston for Notre Dame? Important enough for head coach Brian Kelly to drop in on the Cocoa (Fla.) star, according to 247sports.

Cocoa (Fla.) head coach John Wilkinson confirms that Notre Dame head coach [ b]Brian Kelly[/b] dropped in on four-star running back Tarean Folston.

I previously wrote about Folston here:

Tarean Folston, Cocoa (Fla.) High School, 5'9 190: is one of the most interesting running backs remaining. In previous years, a player of Folston's caliber had an argument for being the best back in the state. But in a loaded 2012, the Cocoa (Fla.) High School star is just one of six or seven stars.

Folston would be a good fit for Notre Dame's system, and could be a good complement to big back Jamel James, who committed to Notre Dame earlier in the summer.
