When Everett Golson announced his decision to transfer out of Notre Dame, it became big news for the SEC.

Initial reports indicated that the Myrtle Beach, S.C. native wants to be closer to home for his final year of college, putting schools like South Carolina and Georgia, both in need of a quarterback, in the running.

Last week, reports surfaced that Golson planned to visit both of those schools this week: South Carolina on Monday and Georgia on Tuesday. On Sunday night, Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports contradicted that report.

Golson threw for 3,445 yards, 29 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season. He started the Notre Dame’s first 12 games, but led the nation in turnovers with 22 and was benched for Malik Zaire in the team’s bowl win over LSU. After leading the Fighting Irish to the 2012 BCS title game against Alabama, he was suspended from Notre Dame for the 2013 season due to academic issues.

Golson will need a waiver from the SEC to transfer as a graduate student who has been disciplined at his previous institution. It’s unclear how difficult that will be for the quarterback.
