"I'm really excited about that," Elmer said about Kiel being Irish. "It's awesome that he made the right choice and I'm jacked about it."
Elmer, who gave Brian Kelly his pledge this past fall hoped his early commitment would help the Irish get off to a fast start in the Class of 2013. Now Elmer feels the addition of Kiel will help the Irish finish strong leading up to National Signing Day.
"It adds getting a really good quarterback coming into the class for you," explained Elmer. "He'll be a sophomore when I come in, but it adds to it having an awesome quarterback coming in now. The coaches are doing a fantastic job bringing guys in and I'm real excited to know we've got our eyes on a few other big guys as well."
