"Five-star quarterback Gunner Kiel has apparently had an 11th-hour change of heart and decided to switch his commitment from LSU to Notre Dame, sources tell Scout.com.
Kiel committed to the Tigers on Dec. 27, a pledge that came after the Columbus, Ind., native backed away from a commitment to Indiana on Oct. 21.
The nation’s No. 1-ranked quarterback prospect was scheduled to arrive in Baton Rouge on Jan. 14 as an early.
On Monday morning, multiple sources confirmed that Kiel was not on LSU’s campus – two days after he was set to arrive.
A source later said Kiel was not in a 3 p.m. meeting for early enrollees. A source also confirmed that Kiel was not yet enrolled in classes at LSU.
The spring semester begins on Tuesday, and students have until Jan. 26 to add classes.
Shortly after 9 p.m., Scout.com’s Dave Berk tweeted (@DMBerk), “Very good source just informed that ND players have been told Kiel to be in class on Tuesday (in South Bend).”
Top quarterback prospect Gunner Kiel switches from LSU (via Indiana) to Notre Dame. I'm sure good old Beetface will ruin him emotionally in no time.
