02:40 PM ET 04.08 | Gunner Kiel, the former top quarterback in the country has visited at least two schools - but they're not exactly what you'd expect from such a highly touted prospect.

ESPN's Joe Schad reports that Kiel has looked at Miami (Ohio) and and Ball State, pointing out that each school has a senior quarterback - which first with Kiel's timeframe as he needs to sit out the upcoming season. A quarterback of Kiel's caliber could be great for pass-heavy MAC offenses. He also may be looking at Ole Miss, where Hugh Freeze has brought in five-star players at almost every position besides quarterback.

Kiel was ranked the No. 1 quarterback and universally considered a five-star quarterback, but had trouble deciding on a college destination, committing and decommitting from Indiana and LSU before enrolling at Notre Dame. After failing to beat out Everett Golson for a starting spot his freshman year, he decided to transfer, still not having played as he now looks for affiliation with his fourth college.

If Kiel is smart, he'll pick a school that's an O-line factory and happens to have need of another QB.

Lawdy, this seems like Brett Favre in reverse. Make up yer mind!!

+1. I dubt that Gunnar is talking all that much but FN needs to shutty about where he may possibly, with some likelihood, conceivably go.

OK, I've already got WPS doggin' me with "Petrino!" smack. Are you really going to pile on with Kiel > UTK smack?

It seemed like an appropriate follow up to yesterday's comments. Besides, unlike WPS's Petrino comments, this will have a short shelf-life. If you are truly perturbed and not amused, I will desist.

No, my friend, my humor is as broad as the mouth of the Amazon river. By all means, play on. ;-)
