Former Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire is nearing a decision as to where his next destination will be as a fifth-year graduate transfer, he said Thursday.

Zaire was originally planning to have a decision made by now, but pushed it back until after his graduation ceremony May 28.

He has visited Wisconsin and North Carolina since he decided to transfer, and he also mentioned Texas and Florida as possible landing spots. Now that spring practices are over and summer is approaching, Zaire wants to get the decision done.

"As soon as possible," he said about when the announcement will come. "I want to get in before fall camp and before school starts so I can be around the guys and get rolling on those relationships."
