Rutgers on Line 1 | by Jay

It didn't take long for Zach Frazer to start shopping around. In the wake of not being named one of the three finalists for the quarterback job, Frazer, according to his father in an interview with the Cumberland Sentinel, is already working the phones, looking for a new home.

"At this point he's a little disappointed," said David Frazer [Zach's father]. "He's worked very hard in the last year and a half and he's been extremely loyal to Notre Dame. He loves the university."

Frazer's name has been tossed around as a possible transfer since the Irish recruited Jones and Clausen. For the upcoming season, the Irish landed four-star prospect Dayne Crist from Sherman Oaks, Calif.

Frazer, who did not see time a season ago, has four years of eligibility remaining. Should he transfer to another Division I school, he would be required to sit out a season, but would still have three years left. A transfer before the fall, to a Division II or III school, means he could play all four years.

"If he could fulfill his desire to be a starting quarterback at a Division I university, he might look at that," David Frazer said.
To his credit, David Frazer was magnaminous towards the program that relegated his son to the scout team, calling Charlie Weis a "phenomenal coach" and Notre Dame a place that Zach "really loves".
