2013 QB Dreams of ND

For Kyle Bolin, any thought of Notre Dame becoming a school with interest is a dream. After enjoying an excellent day at the Best of the Midwest on Monday, Irish Eyes caught up with the signal caller to talk about his interest in the Irish.

It may be early to talk about quarterbacks in the Class of 2013 when Notre Dame is still working to land one in the Class of 2012. However, if Kyle Bolin has anything to do, he will soon show the Irish the skills that made Illinois offer him this week.

"Well, Notre Dame is a Catholic quarterbacks dream. Going to Notre Dame, a Catholic school with great tradition and academics is something I am always thinking about. While I have never been there, I know it is a beautiful place and hope to visit there this spring and camp there this summer and perform in front of the coaches with hopes they show some interest in me."

Living in Lexington (KY) gave Kyle a chance to keep an eye on Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly when he was at Cincinnati. He knows the offense is a quarterbacks dream.

"Yes, the offense is awesome and one that I would love to play in. It is a pass first and run second offense, which is just how I like it. I know Coach Kelly could prepare me for my college career and my future."

While Bolin has not heard much from the Irish to date, he did receive camp info a year ago and plans to camp in South Bend this summer and show his veteran ways.

"My dad has done a great job. He got me out early when I was in eighth grade. I went to camp, competed against some high school freshmen, and ended up winning the MVP of the top prospect camp in Oklahoma. That has opened so many doors for me and I have just continued to attend some one-day events at Tennessee, Kentucky, and Louisville. I plan on attending more this summer with Notre Dame at the top of the list."

At 6-foot-3, 175-pounds, Kyle knows there is still much growth to his physical build and his overall game.

"Every part of my game I want to work on. If I had to pin it to one area, it would be my overall speed. I can get out of the pocket well, but I want to be able to get down the field a little faster. I do feel my strengths are in my decision making and accuracy."

While it is still early, Irish Eyes will be monitoring the Kentucky signal caller in the months to come.
