DeShone Kizer commits to Notre Dame, the latest elite QB domino to fall

DeShone Kizer - Bud Elliott, SB Nation

Who's next?

After top 2014 quarterback prospect Kyle Allen committed to Texas A&M, we plotted out the likeliest next major quarterback commitments over the coming weeks. One scenario was Central Catholic (Toledo, Oh.) Composite four-star DeShone Kizer to Notre Dame, which, yep:

Kizer holds offers from two dozen programs, including Alabama, LSU, Nebraska, and Penn State. His commitment is a little bit of a surprise, since he said just a few days ago at Columbus' Elite 11 he intended to take some SEC visits.

At 6'5, 207 pounds, he's considered a dual-threat quarterback who'll fit just fine into Brian Kelly's offense, which used Everett Golson's wheels to effect in 2012.

According to the roadmap, Harris indeed looks to be up next. Auburn, Alabama, and Ohio State are competing with LSU for his services. Oklahoma's David Cornwell could also be next, likely to Alabama, now that his high school eligibility issue has resolved.

Kizer is the 11th commit in the Irish's 2014 class.
