Notre Dame has its future quarterback, but hes 2 years away

Whenever Notre Dame targets a quarterback it’s a big deal. Now the Fighting Irish have apparently locked down their future signal caller. It’s just that he won’t arrive on campus for another two years.RELATED: 8th grade quarterback Drew Pyne adds Alabama offer and othersNotre Dame got a huge jump start on its recruiting Class of 2020 with the pledge of sophomore quarterback Drew Pyne, a four-star pro-style quarterback who competes for New Canaan High School in Connecticut.Pyne lit up Connecticut as a sophomore, racking up 2,355 yards, 25 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on 169 of 283 passes. He has a ready-made arm and the make-up of a potential Notre Dame star. Still, his youth makes him quite the unknown. As does the relative weakness of the competitive field he goes up against in Connecticut.None of that means Pyne won’t be successful with the Irish. It just means there are still questions worth asking, just as there were for Phil Jurkovec for mutliple years before he arrived in South Bend … just a month removed from his captaining Pine-Richland to a state title.Like Jurkovec, Pyne has long had major attention. He burst onto the national recruiting scene as an eighth grader, when he received a scholarship offer from Alabama. Two years later he’s already made his college decision.
