Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson no longer enrolled in school
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]o say it’s a shocking development is an understatement.
Rumors began making rounds on Twitter and Irish fan sites late Saturday afternoon. The news was later confirmed by school spokesman Dennis Brown.
“Federal and school privacy laws preclude us from issuing any further comment at this time,” Brown told WNDU’s NewsCenter 16 television.
The Myrtle Beach, S.C. native burst onto the scene as a sophomore last season, leading the Notre Dame to an undefeated regular season and a trip to the BCS National Championship game.
Golson started 11 games, leading the Irish to 10 wins. He completed 187 of 318 pass attempts (58.8 percent) for 2,405 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions, and also rushed for 298 yards.
The news comes just after it was announced that highly-recruited QB Gunner Kiel had decided to transfer from Notre Dame. While Notre Dame is not able to give an indication one way or another, it’s possible that Golson could return to school in the future.
As it stands, Notre Dame is left with three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster — Tommy Rees, Andrew Hendrix and Malik Zaire.
