Sources are confirming to ESPN that Gunnar Kiel, Notre Dame Redshirt freshman intends to transfer in the coming weeks. Gunner Kiel as you know was one of the top QBs in the class of 2012 and originally hails from Columbus, Indiana. He made headlines when he spurned Les Miles and LSU at the last minute to sign with Notre Dame.
I think this is a BIG mistake on Gunner’s part and whoever is whispering in his ear. Do you know if Golson will have another solid year of growth? Will Golson stay healthy?
Where does Kiel stand in the depth chart? Tough to say with Rees, Hendrix and now Malik Zaire. As you may remember Malik Zaire is the early enrollee out of Archbishop Alter High School, in Kettering, Ohio. He is compared to Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks.
Nothing official has come out yet and you got to think Gunner is the #2 QB behind Golson right now because Rees is experienced but on his way out and Hendrix is spotty but has tremendous upside and some experience.
Stay tuned Irish Fans.
