Former Notre Dame tight end Jake Golic will transfer to Cincinnati, according to his father, Mike. The elder Golic, a former NFL player and longtime ESPN radio host, announced that his son would be attending Cincinnati as a grad student next year, where he will play his final season of eligibility.
Since Golic will be a graduate student, he will be able to play right away without having to sit out a season. He's the second Notre Dame player to make his way to Cincinnati via transfer this offseason, following former super recruit Gunner Kiel.
Golic didn't record a catch for the Irish, but he was stuck on the depth chart behind Kyle Rudolph and Tyler Eifert during his time in South Bend. Cincinnati will have to replace Travis Kelce, who was a third-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The other tight end who will compete with Golic for the starting job, Blake Annen, had one reception in 2012.
