Notre Dame has already landed a commitment in the 2014 class in Toledo Catholic Quarterback DeShone Kizer. Yesterday, Everett Golson said that he would be returning to Notre Dame in the Spring. That means the Fighting Irish will have at least three Quarterbacks when they enter the 2014 season. It is possible that Andrew Hendrix could also be on the team for added depth but that is unclear at this moment.
A team runs better with 4 players at the Quarterback position. 3 players are needed to run the Offense. Another is needed to run the scout team. Of course, 2 players could be used to run the Offense but it is better for the future if they have three. For example, if Everett Golson returns as the Starter and only plays one more year, Notre Dame would have only 1 Quarterback with experience of running the Offense at least in practice. It would be better if the Irish had 2.
Therefore, should Notre Dame go after Elite 11 MVP Quarterback Sean White? Senior College Football Columnist Bruce Feldman wrote of White:
Another intriguing subplot in his recruitment: He told me he grew up a Notre Dame fan. I know the Irish already have a commitment from DeShone Kizer, but considering how important the position in–and that in the past six month ND lost two of the young QBs in the program with Gunner Kiel transferring and Everett Golson getting booted for his academic issues and his return to South Bend is still up in the air, maybe they take two.
If they would take Sean White, they would fulfill their long term depth issues as well as land a quickly rising prospect who is extremely interested in Notre Dame. White is currently a 3-star prospect with only a few BCS offers. But, with his performance at the Elite 11, teams will be taking a closer look at White. Will Notre Dame be one of them?
