Irsh land QB for Class of 2014

Notre Dame added a quarterback to its 2014 recruiting class.

DeShone Kizer, a four-star prospect from Toledo (Ohio) Central Catholic, announced on his Twitter account Tuesday that he orally committed to the Irish.

"I am privileged to say that I will be continuing my Fighting Irish tradition by playing football at the University of Notre Dame! #CCHStoND," Kizer wrote.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder led the Central Catholic Irish to Ohio's Division II state title.

He completed 109-of-178 passes (61 percent) for 1,611 yards, with 17 touchdowns to just two interceptions, and ran for 402 yards on 65 carries as a junior, according to Rivals.com.

Kizer is ranked the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback by 247Sports and No. 8 by Rivals.com.

He is the 11th member to join Notre Dame's class of 2014.
