QB Kiel Chooses Nortre Dame
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Prized quarterback recruit Gunner Kiel is joining Notre Dame.

Kiel first said he would go to Indiana, where his brother was among the quarterbacks, and he later expressed interest in LSU.

But on Tuesday, the Irish said he was among several players who were joining the team. Among them was running back Amir Carlisle, who played for USC last season. Defensive lineman Sheldon Day (Indianapolis), Kiel (Columbus, Ind.) and defensive back Tee Shepard (Fresno, Calif.) all graduated from their high school last December.

Kiel called his recruiting a ''roller-coaster ride,'' but says Notre Dame was the right fit.
