Visiting numerous campuses and fielding offers from multiple programs, bipolar quarterback Gunner Kiel continues seeking a new college to call home.
Since kneeling to starter Everett Golson and transferring out of out of Notre Dame last month, the 6-foot-4, 210 pound Kiel has been contacted by Cincinnati, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Kansas State, Tennessee, Ball State, Northern Illinois and Miami (Ohio).
“The biggest factor for me now going through it all again is having a great relationship with my position coach,” said Kiel, 19, who captured the Indiana Mr. Football Award as a senior playing for Columbus East High School.
Barely a year later, Kiel proved to be a coward and bolted from South Bend without even challenging the 20-year-old Golson.
Possessing great arm strength and pinpoint accuracy, Kiel should have battled Golson and made Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly seriously consider making a switch.
Now, rather than wearing the Gold and Navy Blue, Gunner Kiel will forever look yellow in any jersey.
Shelved for another season, Gunner Kiel is “going through it all again” in desperate search for an identity.by
