Clarity to Notre Dame’s Quarterback dilemma could come tomorrow when Servite High School Quarterback Travis Waller announces his college decision. Waller will be deciding between Notre Dame, Alabama, Oregon and Northwestern. However, he will likely end up in Eugene.
Waller has not visited Notre Dame or Northwestern. This does not mean that Waller will not select the Irish or Wildcats but it makes it less likely. He has visited Alabama and Oregon. However, Alabama landed a commitment from former Notre Dame commitment Blake Barnett on the 18th of this month. So, common logic probably tells us that Waller will be selecting the Ducks tomorrow.
The Servite High School prospect is one of the top dual threat Quarterbacks in the country. During the 2013 season, Waller completed 127 passes on 235 attempts for 1669 yards and 12 touchdowns. He threw 7 interceptions. Waller was equally as a effective on the ground. He ran for 1293 yards on 171 attempts and 13 touchdowns.
If the Irish pass on taking a Quarterback in this round of recruiting, the Irish could land a big time Quarterback in the 2016 class. Jacob Eason, Malik Henry, Dwayne Haskins and KJ Costello all visited Notre Dame during the month of June. They are ranked as the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 6th best Quarterbacks in the 2016 class.
Waller will make his announcement tomorrow at 1 p.m. ET.
