Recent News quoted "a prominent quarterback guru" as wondering if Cincinnati redshirt sophomore Gunner Kiel is most comfortable as a "big fish in a little pond."
The comment refers to Kiel's brief LSU commitment (he reneged) and his eventual transfer out of Notre Dame. We hope the "quarterback guru" knows Kiel personally, because otherwise he's casting an unwarranted aspersion on a player's character prematurely. Kiel was a high schooler when he decided he'd prefer to play at Notre Dame. We don't have an issue with teenagers changing their minds. And he transferred out of Notre Dame not because he demanded more attention by seeking out less talented teammates (a brazenly reckless assertion that doesn't hold up under scrutiny), but because of Everett Golson's emergence. Understanding the reality of a situation speaks to self awareness, and putting yourself in the best possible position to develop (finding playing time elsewhere) speaks to a commitment to craft. Conjecture of this kind is only being made because evaluators don't have enough game film to speak intelligently about his on-field next-level potential yet. Sep 17 - 7:27 PM
