Gunner Kiel Recruiting: Five Star QB To Take Official Visit To Notre Dame

Top quarterback Gunner Kiel is set to visit Notre Dame this weekend.

Columbus (Ind.) East High School's Gunner Kiel, widely considered the top quarterback recruit in the country, will be taking his official visit to Notre Dame this weekend, the South Bend Tribune reports. Kiel had originally committed to the Indiana Hoosiers, but he backed out about a month ago and isn't said to be seriously considering the Hoosiers any longer.

This will be the second time in two months that Kiel visits South Bend— he was in Notre Dame Stadium for the Irish's loss to the USC Trojans— and the Irish are considered by most to be the favorites for Kiel. Kiel is also considering LSU and Vanderbilt, the latter of which is the most interesting. With his one-time Indiana commitment, Kiel at least showed that he's potentially open to committing to a non-power school, and Vandy coach James Franklin's recruiting in 2011 is poised to further revitalize the program.
