The Notre Dame football team has a quarterback commit in Deuce Knight that everyone else is coveting. They are coveting him so much that the Irish are continuing to have to fight off all comers who want him to switch commitment. One of the biggest rivals for his services is the Alabama Crimson Tide.

New head coach Kalen Deboer hasn't been shy about wanting to land a top of the line quarterback now that he's taken over in Tuscaloosa. It appears that he's pinpointed Deuce Knight as the guy he wants.

However, in a recent talk with On3, the Notre Dame football commit made it clear that while Alabama is certainly one of those schools that has caught his attention, the Tide haven't stolen his heart. But that doesn't mean that there's no chance the Tide couldn't eventually pull him away.

As those close to Knight have pointed out, he talks to DeBoer often. And that if there was zero interest in Alabama, that likely wouldn't be happening. While the quarterback prospect has been working hard to do some peer recruiting. That's one of the reasons why the Irish have got to be hoping he doesn't actually flip.

This isn't the first SEC school that's come calling for Knight. On the same night that Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman came to watch the quarterback ply his trade on the basketball court, Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin did the same.

The question for Notre Dame football, is just how interested is Deuce Knight. The man has been such a big star of the 2025 recruiting class for so long, that when players commit to the Iirsh, they just expect the quarterback to weigh in. Should they lose him, it wouldn't just be about losing a commit.
