Former Notre Dame tight end Jake Golic will finish his college football career with Cincinnati, his father, Mike, announced on Tuesday.

Golic has earned his undergraduate degree from Notre Dame and will be eligible to play immediately for the Bearcats. He will join former Notre Dame teammate Gunner Kiel, though the freshman quarterback will sit out the 2013 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Shortly after the announcement on ESPN Radio, Golic confirmed his intentions to transfer via his Twitter account.

For the Bearcats, Golic's arrival helps address a depth issue at tight end. First-team All-Big East selection Travis Kelce was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round of the NFL Draft last month, leaving senior Blake Annen (one reception, 2 yards in 2012) as the team's top returning tight end.

Golic appeared in two games for the Fighting Irish in both the 2010 and 2012 seasons, with zero receptions. He also participated in special teams. Jake's brother, former Notre Dame offensive lineman Mike Golic Jr., was recently signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent.
