Irish QB Gunner Kiel is planning to transfer from Notre Dame according to a source speaking to EPSN. It wasn’t made apparent which school Kiel was planning on transferring to, and Notre Dame wouldn’t comment on the rumored transfer.
Kiel is considered an interesting case as people were highly critical of him during the recruitment process. He was originally going to play for LSU, but decided at the last minute to play for Notre Dame. This drew some ire from LSU coach Les Miles who said that Kiel “did not necessarily have the chest and the ability to lead a program.”
Since then, Kiel has been questioned about his decision, and Miles’ statement, many times. In an interview, the young player admitted that he was “dumb during the recruitment process,” but stated that he was doing “what was best for [him] at the time.”
Transferring may be what’s best for Kiel at this time as Notre Dame freshman Everett Golson played quarterback last year, and Notre Dame recently snagged a new Freshman quarterback in Malik Zaire. A transfer may be just what he needs to ensure that he actually gets some extensive playtime in.[image: Yahoo Sports]
