Notre Dame freshman quarterback Gunner Kiel earned praise from coach Brian Kelly after the Irish completed its first spring practice. Kelly pointed to Kiel's obvious talent and another trait he has that the other three quarterback contenders don't have -- size. Kiel, at 6-4, is substantially taller than his competitors.
Obviously, it's early, but Kelly sees some things in Kiel he likes from the get-go, so it will be interesting to see how things shake out for the Irish. Kiel's size allows him to see "some things" the other quarterbacks might not, according to Kelly.
