Here we go again.
Gunner Kiel, the nation’s top-ranked quarterback in the class of 2012, has already flipped once during the recruiting process, decommitting from Indiana over the summer and then verbally committing to LSU a few months later.
Reportedly, he could be doing another flip.
According to a tweet from Scout.com‘s Shea Dixon, “there [was] a 3 p.m. [CT] meeting with early enrollees and Kiel [was] not in attendance.” Kiel had previously stated that he would be enrolling early at LSU and would participate in spring practice.
Instead, the Indiana high school product could be headed to another school, namely Notre Dame.
Kiel has not commented publicly on his status, and the last tweet posted to his Twitter account mentioning the school was Jan. 9. “About to watch my Tigers take it to Alabama!! Geaux Tigers,” Kiel wrote before the BcS title game.
LSU is not permitted to discuss any recruit who has not signed his Letter of Intent or enrolled early at the school.
In addition to being Rivals‘ top-rated pro-style QB, the recruiting service also rates the 6-4, 220-pound Kiel as the No. 19 prospect at any position in the country. As a senior this past season, Kiel threw for over 2,500 yards, ran for nearly 500 more and combined for 39 touchdowns — 28 passing, 11 rushing.
He had also received scholarship offers from, among others, Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Oklahoma, TCU, Tennessee, USC and Wisconsin.
