Kizer stays Irish
Four-star quarterback DeShone Kizer led the Toledo Central Catholic Fighting Irish to the Ohio Division II state championship back in December.
After committing to Notre Dame on Tuesday, he'll have the chance to lead a different group of Fighting Irish to a title on a much bigger stage.
"I am privileged to say that I will be continuing my Fighting Irish tradition by playing football at the University of Notre Dame," Kizer posted on Twitter.
Kizer just recently landed an offer from Notre Dame and visited South Bend with his family on Sunday.
That visit went well and Kizer opted to shut down the recruiting process with his commitment to head coach Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish. He had planned to visit LSU later this week after already purchasing airfare to Baton Rouge.
As a junior, Kizer completed 109-of-178 passes (61-percent) for 1,611 yards with 17 touchdowns to just two interceptions. He also rushed for 402 yards on 65 carries.
In his sophomore season, his first as a starter, Kizer threw for 1,147 yards and 10 touchdowns and rushed for 540.
Rivals.com ranks Kizer as the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback in the country.
Through his performance at the Columbus Elite 11 Regional Camp, Kizer earned an invitation to compete in the Elite 11 Finals this summer in California.
