Yesterday it became official that Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson will indeed transfer to another football program in the fall. The suitors figure to be lining up for the chance to bring in a worthy starting quarterback, and perhaps Michigan may be on that list of interested parties.
It was not so long ago Michigan added a transfer quarterback in Jake Rudock from Iowa, but new head coach Jim Harbaugh is not one to stop trying to put together the best possible team he can as he gets to work in Ann Arbor. Rudock can potentially give Michigan an upgrade at quarterback this fall, but the addition of Golson would be even more of an improvement.
Golson may have struggled down the stretch of the 204 season in South Bend, but he still has the skills and athleticism to add some more to the position if he ends up at Michigan, and he would be the favorite to be the starter. Golson wants a chance to start, and doing so at a program like Michigan for a coach that once worked with Andrew Luck makes for a desirable situation.
Golson and Luck are two different quarterbacks of course, but Michigan could be a good landing spot for the now former Irish QB.
