Originally committed to North Carolina, dual-threat quarterback Everett Golson switched over to Notre Dame on Dec. 2. He has enrolled early and will compete for the wide-open quarterback race at spring practice. Nonetheless, it will be difficult for Golson to crack the starting lineup as a freshman, as all of his competitors for the starting job have the advantage of been in Brian Kelly’s spread offense for a year already.
Golson is built more like a wide receiver than a quarterback, and some analysts question his ability to start at quarterback in college because of his height. However, Golson has some very strong traits as a passer, including his arm strength, which could lead to him being the Irish signal-caller in the future.
