With his decision Thursday to transfer from Notre Dame, Everett Golson has officially hit the market as college football’s most eligible quarterback.
ESPN reported earlier in the year that 20-plus schools would be interested if he were to leave South Bend. Well, here we are. Let’s see how many make a push for the big-armed veteran who struggled last season for the Irish.
Golson threw 14 interceptions in 2014 and was on the verge of losing his job to Malik Zaire, who will now take over at QB for Notre Dame.
Which schools make the most sense for Golson? Also, with so many SEC programs having question marks at the position, will they even be allowed to bring him in? A league rule went into place a year ago preventing grad transfers who have been previously suspended. Golson sat out the 2013 season due to an academic infraction.
To transfer to an SEC school, he would need the approval of the commissioner -- which seems unlikely but not impossible, according to reporting from ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.
But, for the sake of conversation, let’s say he will be allowed in the SEC. Which programs are most logical? Who could use Golson the most?
