Brady Quinn Calls Golson Transfer From Notre Dame "Sad," Believes He's More Polished Than Malik Zaire

While losing an accomplished quarterback is never good for a college football program, most Notre Dame fans seem to be okay with Everett Golson's transfer, with highly acclaimed Malik Zaire waiting in the wings. Don't count former Irish quarterback Brady Quinn among them, however. He believes that Golson, who started for two seasons at Notre Dame, may have very well won the job over Zaire. Quinn spoke to ND Insider about the Golson news.

“He’s the more polished, the more experienced among the two quarterbacks, between him and Malik Zaire,” said Quinn, currently a college football analyst for FOX Sports and formerly the starting QB at Notre Dame from 2003-06.

“Everett has got a tremendous amount of upside, a ton of ability. When you watch him, he seems to get the ball out quicker. He goes through his reads quicker, and that comes with experience. His decision to leave Notre Dame at this stage surprised me and made me sad.

Golson will reportedly visit Georgia and South Carolina next week. Both the Bulldogs and Gamecocks are among the teams that we believe could be a good fit for the now-former Irish quarterback.
