Golson gets competition for Notre Dame starting QB job

Former Myrtle Beach High star quarterback Everett Golson has some more competition for the starting job at Notre Dame.

Golson, who appeared to be the heir apparent for the starting role after redshirting last season, now has another highly recruited signal-caller to compete with for the job.

Rivals.com’s No. 1 rated high school quarterback Gunner Kiel enrolled at Notre Dame, leaving two schools jilted before he even throws a pass in the NCAA. Kiel finally settled on the Fighting Irish after breaking commitments with both Indiana and LSU.

One of the top quarterbacks entering the NCAA this year, Kiel initially agreed to go to Indiana but backed off his verbal commitment and opted for the Tigers ahead of Notre Dame and Vanderbilt.

After having second thoughts about heading to LSU, Kiel met with Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly over the weekend and changed his mind again. Kiel’s relationship with Kelly runs deep, with the veteran coach having recruited Kiel’s two brothers in the past.

The Irish decided to redshirt Golson in 2011 to give him time to mature and learn the offense, but he has shown flashes of brilliance in practice and was expected to compete for the starting job with Tommy Rees, who started the majority of the 2011 season, and backup Andrew Hendrix.
