07:31 AM ET 01.09 | Notre Dame lost a QB Wednesday, but help is on the way, eventually, in Blake Barnett. When he finally had the chance to see the junior quarterback in person on Sunday, [Jordan Palmer] and the rest of the Elite 11 crew realized the Notre Dame pledge matched the hype. ... "He's big enough to be a prototypical pocket passer in the NFL today. Then you look at what he does athletically, he can make people miss," Palmer said. "He can pull away from people in high school. I see a guy that when he gets bigger and stronger and faster, he could be able to do that at the college level too." On Wednesday, Barnett added another accolade when he accepted an early invite to play in the 2015 Under Armour All-America Game. The hype continues to build for a quarterback more than a year away from enrolling at Notre Dame.

Dang it, Man! Stop it!

In all seriousness, I bet Gunner regrets the decision to transfer because only a short time after that became official, the mess with Everett started.

That's what the reports indicate. He has enrolled again and was set to begin second semester classes, last I heard.

The one that got away, eh? Think his departure might have had anything to do with the inimitable Mr. Kelly?

WOW.... a High School Junior is the next savior.... so does this mean the Domers have a waiver on three or four years of excuses until this kid gets there, redshirts, then sits behind someone that sucks for a year?
