SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Quarterback Gunner Kiel is leaving Notre Dame without ever playing a down.
Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly announced Tuesday that the former standout from Columbus, Ind., who was one of the top-rated quarterbacks coming out of high school a year ago, plans to transfer. He was the scout team quarterback his freshman season as the Irish went 12-1 and finished the season ranked No. 4.
Kelly says Kiel was told he would be given a chance to compete for the starting job.
As a senior at Columbus East High School, he passed for 2,517 yards and 28 touchdowns. Kiel originally announced he planned to play for Indiana, then said he would attend LSU before enrolling at Notre Dame.
