Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly showed clear excitement this week at the prospect of having freshman quarterback DeShone Kizer on the team along with Everett Golson and Malik Zaire.

“Now we’ve got three quarterbacks on campus that all do the same things,” Kelly said. “You don’t have to adjust your offense. All three of the quarterbacks … all do the same thing.”
