The one-time five-star recruit will sit out the 2013 season and have three years of eligibility remaining.
The transfer could be a good move for the young quarterback, as ESPN's Joe Schad is also reporting that Bearcats coach Tommy Tuberville plans to implement a pro-style attack that will better suit Kiel's skill set than Notre Dame's spread did. It's also a recruiting coup for Tuberville, who now has an elite talent around which to build his offense.
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Kiel was Indiana's "Mr. Football" as a 2011 senior at East High in Columbus, Ind. He was considered the No. 1 quarterback in the country by various recruiting services. Kiel ended up at Notre Dame -- where his uncle, Blair, played -- after first committing to Indiana, then to LSU.
He spent the 2012 season as a backup to starting Irish quarterback Everett Golson and did not see the field.
