Notre Dame Fighting Irish commit Deuce Knight has had praise heaped on him for months. He's gotten that praise because he's uber-talented but also because he's shown to be someone with a strong moral compass.

Knight appears to be a trustworthy kid who will be a great addition to Notre Dame when he's finally living in South Bend, but the biggest reason why that's so exciting is because of his ability to make plays with his arms and his legs.

Earlier this week, 247Sports recruiting analyst Andrew Ivins weighed in on what he saw from the quarterback commit at the OT7 event in Orlando.

"This was the best I've ever seen from Deuce, Saturday at the OT7 event," Ivins said. "He's (an) athletic lefty, and I think he's a bit streaky as a passer, but when he's on, he's is on. And that was the case Day One. One of the games, he went 8-for-8 for 160 yards and four touchdowns. The ball never touched the ground. I mean, he threw back-to-back 40-yard touchdown passes. He was excellent."

This is just the latest story of why the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are working so hard to keep Deuce Knight in the fold.

Former Notre Dame cornerback Micah Bell has at least one suitor for his services. Bell entered the transfer portal shortly after the Irish finished their spring practices.

Notre Dame baseball has had a very up and down season, but the Irish have been playing better of late. Including taking two of three from Wake Forest, which was ranked 8th in the nation at the time. One of the reasons Notre Dame has been more competitive this month is Estevan Moreno who, as you can see above, has had one heck of a month.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish added another running back to their room. This one is walk-on Jake Tafelski, who comes over from Central Michigan. Last season, he appeared in just one game as a running back, carrying the ball 3 times for 12 yards. He did also play on special teams.
