Think DeShone Kizer, Malik Zaire and Brandon Wimbush hit up Cancun or Panama City Beach for spring break? Think again.

Notre Dame’s talented three-deep each hit the road during the university’s spring break, but all three went to work with quarterback coaches as they prepare for a very important spring practice.’s Matt Freeman has the scoop on the travel plans($), reporting that Zaire went to Arizona to train with Dennis Gile at The Quarterback Academy while Kizer and Wimbush are in San Diego working with George Whitfield.

Zaire stuck around in Arizona after the Fiesta Bowl to spend some time with Gile, clearly ready to do battle this spring after recovering from his broken ankle. Kizer follows Everett Golson’s footsteps from South Bend to San Diego, training with Whitfield after a successful debut campaign, taking over for Zaire in the season’s second week.

Social Media gave us our first look at workouts:

Wimbush traveling to San Diego is a nice addition. While head coach Brian Kelly talked publicly about the hope to redshirt Wimbush and get back the year of eligibility he had to use in 2015, the rising sophomore has the raw talent and tools to be a dynamic player. Putting the work in and traveling on his own dime to San Diego to work with Whitfield shows that he’s ready to make the investment in his own future.

Notre Dame opens up spring practice on March 16th.
