Notre Dame quarterback Deshone Kizer declared for the NFL Draft today.
With Kizer turning pro and Malik Zaire transferring, the reins of the Notre Dame offense now belong to Brandon Wimbush, a well-regarded signal caller who redshirted in 2016 after backing up Kizer in 2015.
Today, Kizer and Wimbush exchanged heartfelt Instagram posts. Wimbush wished Kizer well and thanked him, while Kizer symbolically handed over the keys.
This was pretty cool.
Wimbush was one of the top quarterback recruits in the 2015 class, so it will be interesting to see his development as he takes over the starting role.
