The Notre Dame football team is set in the 2024 and 2025 classes so the Fighting Irish is officially setting its sights on the 2026 class.
Marcus Freeman and Gerad Parker find themselves in a very enviable position. The Notre Dame football team has secured commitments from a couple of the best quarterback recruits from each of the next two classes.
CJ Carr has already been secured for the 2024 class and Deuce Knight, considered among the Top 5 quarterback prospects in the country for the 2025 cycle is very much on board for Notre Dame football. Now it’s time for the Irish coaching staff to go out and get the next great quarterback. Luckily, in the form of Noah Grubbs, Freeman and his staff have made significant headway in that department.
We’re obviously too far out from the 2026 class to know exactly where Grubbs is going to rank among his contemporaries. However, it’s clear that 247Sports considers him one of the best at his position for his recruiting cycle. And Tom Loy of that site recently talked to him a bit about his feelings regarding Notre Dame.
The 6-foot-4 signal-caller out of Lake Mary, Florida, is already seeing his stock rise pretty precipitously. He’s already got offers from Notre Dame football, Michigan, Penn State, and Miami to name just a few.
It’s possible that the Fighting Irish are currently in the lead. Thanks in no small part to their blowout win over USC last weekend in South Bend.
"“The game was intense. So many ups and downs, but experiencing it from a fan’s perspective was awesome. I got to see what it’s like on the biggest stage and it was electric.”"
Notre Dame football poised for another big win
A lot can change between now and December of 2026. It’s a safe bet that the team that is leading for his services will change more than once. However, it certainly doesn’t hurt for Notre Dame to get its foot in the door in such a decisive fashion.
