Highly touted high school quarterback Gunner Kiel might be switching his commitment from LSU to Notre Dame, according to multiple reports.
Kiel, ranked by Rivals as the No. 1 quarterback in the country, is reportedly wavering on his commitment to Les Miles and the LSU Tigers. Kiel was expected to enroll early in LSU classes this week, but has yet to report to the Baton Rouge school.
Instead, according to Irish Illustrated, Kiel has reconsidered his initial decision and is instead expected to enroll at Notre Dame sometime this week. 247Sports.com also reported on Monday that it appeared Kiel was leaning towards decommitting from LSU and committing to the Fighting Irish.
This wouldn't be the first time that Kiel decided to decommit from a school and head elsewhere. The Indiana native initially committed to home state Indiana, where his older brother plays, but decided to decommit and head to LSU in late December.
Kiel, a pro-style quarterback, would likely compete right away in South Bend with incumbent starter Tommy Rees. Rees struggled at times during Notre Dame's past season, but is considered to be the favorite to start in 2012.
Landing Kiel would be a major coup for Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly. The team currently has the 21st best recruiting class in the nation, according to Rivals, but would likely jump a few spots if it got a commitment from the best quarterback in the country.
No one from the Kiel family has publicly commented on the rumors of his decommitment -- ensuring that this will be a wild story until the early enrollment period ends.
