This is according to a report from Irish Sports Daily, Notre Dame's ESPN Affiliate. Here's their Tweet:
If you haven't heard yet, #NotreDame is no longer recruiting VA LB Ken Ekanem. This weekend's scheduled visit is off.
Earlier today, Washington Post sports reporter Paul Tenorio Tweeted the following:
Centreville All-Met Ken Ekanem said he enjoyed his visit to VT and has good understanding of what his role on defense would be. #allmets
"Oregon is off the map," Haddock said. "It looks like it's between Tech and Notre Dame."
Ekanem had 72 tackles,18 sacks and 32 quarterback pressures for the Wildcats, including a 4.5 sack performance in the state semifinals against Hermitage. He also caught eight touchdown passes.
In the state championship, however, Ekanem tore his ACL and meniscus while pulling down the Oscar Smith quarterback six minutes into the game. Ekanem underwent surgery in late December.

A source has indicated to us that Ken suffered a torn meniscus and ACL, though nothing has been made official. Either way, we wish him a speedy recovery.
"I was going for the quarterback and following him," said Ekanem, of the play in which Williamson, under pressure, had moved to his left. "I grabbed him from the back. My foot got stuck and my body went to the right."
