Charlie Weis To Kansas: Former Notre Dame Quaterback Dayne Crist To Visit KU, According To Reports

From the moment Charlie Weis was confirmed as Kansas' next coach on Thursday afternoon, speculation swirled that his first recruiting coup would be former Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist. Pete Thamel of the New York Times is reporting that Cris will visit Kansas and meet with Weis tomorrow.

Crist was once considered the quarterback of the future for the Irish under Weis and his successor Brian Kelley, but was benched in Notre Dame's season opening loss to South Florida. Since that time he's slid to third on the depth chart behind Tommy Rees, who Crist previously beat out in spring practice for the starting job, and Andrew Hendrix.

Crist has played in 17 games for the Irish, completing 199 of 338 passes for 2,327 yards with 16 touchdown passes and nine INTs. He threw for only 164 yards and one interception in the 2011 season.
