Notre Dame quarterback Gunner Kiel was one of the most highly-touted prospects of the 2012 high school recruiting class, and he took several schools along for the ride. Kiel, who is from Indiana, committed to Indiana University in the summer of 2011 before switching to LSU. He was set to enroll at LSU last January, but his mother reportedly became very emotional about her son going to school so far from home. At the last second, Kiel wound up committing to Notre Dame. Now, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound freshman may have changed his mind yet again. According to Irish Sports Daily, Kiel intends to transfer from Notre Dame. He spent the 2012 season as the scout team quarterback for the Irish and was redshirted, meaning he still has four years of eligibility remaining. Many believed Kiel could challenge Everett Golson for the starting quarterback position this spring. Kiel graduated early from high school and was considered the nation’s top prep school quarterback in the class of 2012. When he switched his commitment to Notre Dame just days before he was scheduled to enroll at LSU, Les Miles was not pleased. “There was a gentleman from Indiana that thought about coming to the Bayou state,” Miles said at the time, via ESPN.com. “He did not necessarily have the chest and the ability to lead a program, so you know.” It’s unclear what Kiel’s motives would be for transferring from Notre Dame or where he intends to go. While we don’t know a whole lot about Kiel as a college quarterback just yet, we can be certain of one thing — he’s one indecisive young man.
