Teammate says Malik Zaire is better leader than Golson

This offseason, quarterback Everett Golson transferred from the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and landed with the Florida State Seminoles. While that could have been a big loss for the team in South Bend, the Fighting Irish are going around with business as usual and they do not seem to be too concerned with Golson’s departure.

In fact, one teammate, wide receiver William Fuller, seems to think that Notre Dame is in a better place.

According to Fuller, the team’s current signal-caller, Malik Zaire, is a better leader than what they had when Golson was in the huddle.

“He knows he can put the ball wherever it needs to go. His confidence is real good for our offense,” Fuller said, via 247 Sports. “He’s a lot more vocal (than Everett Golson). Talks a lot more. I think he’s a better leader than Ev.

“I feel like some of the guys never had a leader like that. He’s a real emotional guy, so I think it really surprises some of the guys and gets them more of that Malik boot. I think he’s doing a great job leading the offense.”

Zaire has certainly been impressive during his time under center for the Fighting Irish.

With his teammates being 100 percent in his corner and one of his top targets having belief in him, we could see Zaire take Notre Dame’s offense to the next level in 2015.
