Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire previously announced that he will be transferring from the program following the season.
While it will take some time before Zaire lands at his next home, we know that at least 11 schools will not be an option after Notre Dame has reportedly blocked the signal-caller from transferring to those programs.
According to the report from ESPN, the programs being blocked will be the opponents on the Fighting Irish’s 2017 season outside of North Carolina.
That means Zaire will be unable to transfer to Temple, Georgia, Boston College, Michigan State, Miami (OH), USC, NC State, Wake Forest, Miami (FL), Navy or Stanford.
