Recruitment Rundown
Kiser may be a small-school kid, but he’s made a big name for himself. Prior to being named Indiana’s Mr. Football his senior season, Kiser earned Power Five offers from Iowa, Indiana and Purdue. By the fall of his junior season, it was obvious the Irish were interested and he made trips to South Bend for consecutive games in September. He was back at Notre Dame for the Irish’s Junior Day in March, but they still weren’t quite ready to offer. That changed two months later, when defensive coordinator got a chance to see Kiser move around in person at Pioneer High School. A month after that, Kiser announced his commitment to Notre Dame.

Head Coach Adam Berry
“He’s basically another coach on the field for us. He’s our quarterback as well, so he’ll come over and tell us what he sees on the defense. He can tell us what he sees they’re doing on offense…He’s just a football player.”

ISD expert Jamie Uyeyama
I see similarities between Kiser and Drue Tranquill and believe he has an equally high ceiling. Whether he reaches that ceiling is still to be determined, but what Tranquill has done as a former safety turned linebacker is a great blueprint for Kiser to follow.

A standout track and field athlete as well, he fits the profile of a multi-sport/multi-position 3-star prospect who hasn’t specialized at one spot. His best football is ahead of him and I love this addition to the class for the Irish.

Favorite quote to ISD
“If you’re an athlete there, you have to work hard on your academics first. That’s the unique thing I think about Notre Dame that you don’t really see elsewhere.”
