Everett Golson led the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to the national title game as a sophomore. Obviously, he’s gone now. But could return for the winter quarter possibly. On conference call today, Brian Kelly did not say anything about what other schools are interested in the services of Everett Golson. So for now we say “hey, thanks for coming!” to Everett Golson. Brian Kelly has Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix to work with in the quarterback situation. And now, blue chip prospect Malik Zaire enters the mix. Consensus #1 quarterback recruit Gunner Kiel committed to Notre Dame, but he left school to transfer to Cincinnati. Gunner Kiel committed to Indiana, LSU, ND and then finally the Bearcats. He has yet to play a down of college football. He has already verified that he is still committed to Cincy. Brian Kelly laughed off the Gunner Kiel question today at the press conference. It’s not going to happen. Hendrix provides a dual threat for the Irish;  and Rees has a lot of experience. Not all of it is good, as Rees is known to create a lot of turnovers. Rees also has the feel and look of a 8-5 team QB1. The Notre Dame QB situation kind of returned to where it was 2010-11 this past weekend; a step down from the Notre Dame QB situation in 2012. “Was I disappointed? Certainly. Surprised? No,” Brian Kelly said. “When you’re working with 18-21 year old kids. I’m not surprised when my 15-year-old knucklehead son comes home and does crazy things. But there is a family (here) and we support him and we’re proud of the way he handled himself,” Kelly said about the former Notre Dame QB. Rees will probably be QB1, Hendrix QB2 and Zaire QB3 come autumn camp. So what can the Notre Dame QB candidate do to distinguish himself from the others this June and July? “As is indicated from years past, I’m sure these guys will be highly motivated to go out there and throw and do all things necessary to develop their skills,” Kelly said. What does Brian Kelly need to see from Everett Golson to ensure that he has the ability to return next season? “In January, if he’s here on campus and in school he would have had to have done the right things. Once you except responsibility and follow through on what you’re expected to do, that’s all I need to see,” Kelly said. Everett Golson overcame a concussion this past fall. He was consulted by Dr. Moriarty, one of the lead guys in concussion treatment. Now he must get past academic, not medical issues to be the Notre Dame QB starter again. Paul M.
