Notre Dame now have their commitment No.11 of the spring recruitment period after four-star dual-threat quarterback DeShone Kizer revealed the Fighting Irish were his favoured choice.

Kizer arrives as an important recruit for coach Brian Kelly to land following the suspension of Everett Golson - last season's QB - due to academic issues and the transfer of Gunner Kiel to Cincinnati.

The 6ft5in, 207 pounds youngster arrives in Notre Dame with plenty of potential and onto a roster lacking established quarterbacks, although he is unlikely to take the first snap of the season when it begins in August.

Coach Kelly has revealed that Tommy Rees will be his favoured choice when competitive action gets underway against Temple, with Kizer likely to be a back-up alongside Malik Zaire.

Rees started 12 of 13 games for Notre Dame in 2011 as the team went 8-5. He also played his part in four key victories last season in the absence of Golson, and is set to continue now the former has left the school.

Golson, however, plans to return to Notre Dame in 2014 and has thanked coach Kelly for the 'belief' shown in him during recent troubles.
