    Appears to be one of the 6 QBs ND is showing interest in at this point and eithier ND will come watch him throw in May or he will camp at ND in June per Wiltfong

      Pretty sporadic with his accuracy in that video but he sure is whipping that ball around.

        Well being from Toledo, I would be pretty happy to see this happen.

          always wondered why we didn't get in it for this guy...works in a spread offense and could be a good fit, but lower on our board

            Bama and LSU offered? Good enough for me.
            60% of the time, it works every time.

              Him being 1 of 6 QBs in the country ND is pursing at the moment would put him high on NDs board, no?

                Wasn't very impressive the game I watched him play but won a state title. Good athlete that plays basketball too.

                    I believe he is a late bloomer; this being said he won a division II state title and played in a league where the division I runnerup also played. A ridiculous number of playoff teams played in that league.

                      not necessarily if he's one of six he could be anywhere in that group....big difference between who they see as one and who they see as six imo

                        agreed....but it looked as if the coach was calling the game not to lose it offensively, especially since their defense was playing so well

                          My bad, should have clarified. I saw the game against Whitmer that was 42-0 a couple minutes into the second half, which is when I left.

                              Whitmer beat Leurs 20-3 and that could have been 48-0 if Jaylon Smith hadn't been playing.

                                Scout.com: Kizer hoping for Notre Dame offer

                                scout article...maybe redbar can help us :)

                                would imagine some other chips need to fall before he gets an offer from us.

                                claims we are in his top 5 even without offering.

                                  I mean you cant really argue with his size if its a true 6-5 205. Obviously made some bad throws but I wouldnt mind taking him and developing him over time.

                                    I will be this is an "Allen thing." We are waiting for the two Arizona guys, Andrews and Allen to shake down and based upon things not working out with Allen for ND I think we would offer and take Kizer. He would be a perfect guy behind Ziare.

                                          hopefully weather cooperates, but that's not a bad idea. nice facility so you should get a good look.

                                            Looks like an offer from either school isn't coming for now

                                              If we miss on Allen and Dawkins I'd offer him.

                                                Still curious how Randall Cunningham II will do this year for Gorman, his offers could really flood in after a couple games

                                                  True story. One of my friends whom I went to grade school with went to Central Catholic, and after drinking wayyyyy too much had the nerve to call up their head coach and leave a message on his cell about how he ****ed his wife a number of times.

                                                  He was promptly expelled. You don't mess with Central Catholic football.

                                                    just another example of Ohio State's poor academic standards.

                                                        ha no I was just joking about that. I sent word to a friend who has a step son at Central and told him to hang around the football locker room to see if he'd meet anyone. Chuck Martin was there in the morning and someone from OSU was expected later, not sure who. Martin liked what he saw and was to take the info back to the rest of the staff to share. No offer yet but told Kizer he'd be in touch. Kizer is expected to announce relatively soon, so OSU and ND will need to make a decision to offer if they are that interested. This is all per ISD.

                                                          Any idea who the presumed leader would be, since he is wanting to decide soon?

                                                              LSU leads for Kizer, Brandon Harris, and Mason Randolph, they want two QBs

                                                              QB dominos are going to start to fall real soon across the country

                                                                QB dominos are going to start to fall real soon across the country
                                                                Very good point. Cornwell will be picking Bama soon. Anybody know why we aren't in on Brandon Harris at all?

                                                                      Comment

Interest in him has really heated up in the past month or so. Every major team has been in to visit or see him throw. ND wants him to visit (presumably before making an offer) but OSU and UM both like where they stand with Deshone. He grew up a UM fan. His team has their spring game in a week and my brother said he would talk to him then for an update.

Kizer is really intrigued by NDs academics and QB situation and has high interest in ND and OSU.

                                                                          He will visit LSU and Bama next and knows his offer to Bama isn't committable yet.

                                                                          Wiltfong thinks he'd be NDs to lose if offered and the staff is just waiting on Kyle Allen.

                                                                          It looks like to me that Kizer prefers both ND and OSU to his other offers and is waiting it out to see if either offers.

                                                                                        gunner transfers, we put out offers to allen, kid from Norman, and an ugly mfer (according to kuehnja;)) in Virginia if I'm not mistaking.

                                                                                        Allen commits to aTm.

                                                                                        wouldn't we go hard for the other two before offering kizer?

                                                                                        or are those other two offers noncommitable too?

                                                                                                Honestly, we got ****ed by the Gunner/Golson debacle. QBs tend to commit early and stick so you have to be in on them early. We went from completely passing on a QB to needing potentially two... and it's really late to get in with a lot of guys we might want.

                                                                                                There just aren't many quality options this year. Not a lot of talented signal callers out there and basically it's Kizer or bust at this point IMO... unless we flip someone or find a late bloomer.

                                                                                                Revisit Mahalak? TP said no way. Dawkins? Just all kinds of meh. Drew Barker? That ship sailed when we stopped recruiting him. Who else is there really?

                                                                                                Cunningham? Kizer? Park? O'Connor maybe?

                                                                                                Just a pretty dire year to be in desperate need of a QB. Long term we better pray that Hendrix can give us two good years, Zaire is good, and then there can be a smooth transition to whomever we get in 2015. Either that or Golson comes back.

                                                                                                Comment

                                                                                                  Cunningham could really turn out to be a very good option and w/ alot of teams set for QB that situation could turn out good for ND. Baylor leads at the moment but I have a feeling he will get better offers.


                                                                                                  Don't get why we just don't offer Kizer, even if its not commitable at the moment for some reason. He doesn't seem to care that his Bama offer is not commitable,
                                                                                                  “Class is what losers talk about when they have nothing left to say.”
