Notre Dame transfer quarterback Malik Zaire has reportedly narrowed down his two choices to Wisconsin and North Carolina after visits to those schools last week.
For Zaire, that decision will likely depend on whether UNC redshirt junior quarterback Mitch Trubisky decides to declare for the draft after the season. Trubisky has one more year of eligibility left, but he has not said much about his future after this season. He is projected on mock drafts as a top-10 pick in the NFL draft and many draft experts have him as the No. 1 rated quarterback.
Coming out of high school, Zaire was one of the most highly rated prospects.
The 6-foot, 220-pound left-handed thrower earned his first career start at the 2014 Music City Bowl, where he earned MVP. He started two games for Notre Dame in 2015 before an ankle injury ended his season.
Never miss a local story.
This season, he was expected to receive playing time along with fellow quarterback DeShone Kizer, but that never materialized. During his career at Notre Dame, Zaire finished with six touchdowns, no interceptions and threw for 816 yards.
