Former Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist, one of the top quarterback prospects in the country coming out of high school in 2008, will officially visit Kansas this weekend, according to Crist’s mother, Karen.
Crist was recruited to Notre Dame by newly-named KU coach Charlie Weis, who will be introduced as the Jayhawks’ leader today at 5 p.m. in a news conference.
Crist graduated from Notre Dame with one year of eligibility remaining and intends to transfer to another school where he will attend graduate school and play one season of football.
In 2010, Crist began the season as the starter and completed 174 of 294 passes for 2,033 yards and 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Crist lost the starting job to Tommy Rees, who held onto the role in 2011.
Crist is reportedly also considering Wisconsin, which made a similar move last season when Russell Wilson transferred from North Carolina State after graduating. Wilson led the Badgers to the Big Ten championship and a Rose Bowl berth this season.
