Next week, 16 players will attend the NFL draft. Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen was invited as well, and Clausen and multiple family members had planned to be present, but he had not committed.
We’re told that Clausen recently has decided not to attend, due to the fact that his grandfather, whose wife recently passed, was not able to make the trip to New York. So instead the Clausen family will congregate in Palm Springs, where his grandfather currently resides.
Florida quarterback Tim Tebow also has been invited but has not yet made a decision on whether to attend.
