Report: Notre Dame's Gunner Kiel considering transfer
After redshirting the 2012 season the highly-touted quarterback is reportedly looking to leave South Bend.
Kiel came to Notre Dame as part of its 2012 recruiting classes and was considered one of the top quarterback prospects in the country. He redshirted the 2012 season and ran Notre Dame's scout team, impressing the Irish coaching staff.
The report does not give a reason for Kiel's supposed interest in transferring.
Kiel had been expected to compete with Everett Golson for the starting job this spring, but considering that Golson just helped lead the Fighting Irish to a 12-0 mark in the regular season and a berth in the BCS Championship, you have to think it wasn't going to be easy for Kiel to take his job.
If Kiel does decide to transfer from Notre Dame he'll have to sit out a year but does have four years of eligibility remaining. CBSSports.com's Bruce Feldman reports that a coach at a major program said Kiel's representatives contacted him about the possibility of transferring last month, but the coach told them he wasn't interested.
The Indiana native originally committed to Indiana before changing his mind and flipping to LSU. Kiel then switched his commitment from LSU to Notre Dame shortly before he was scheduled to enroll in classes in Baton Rouge.
