Tommy Rees, QB, Jr.
After the sudden departure of Irish quarterback, Everett Golson, head coach Brian Kelly said that Tommy Rees will be the starting quarterback of the Irish in the fall. Rees is by far the most experienced of the three quarterback options. Even though Golson led the Irish to the BCS National Championship, Rees did play in nine games last season. If Notre Dame wants to repeat the success they had in 2012, Rees has to elevate his duel-threat ability because of the loss of the powerful running attack of Cierre Wood and Theo Riddick who were both drafted into the NFL.
