One of the things that sets the Notre Dame football program apart is its impressive quarterback recruiting under the Marcus Freeman regime. We’ve already witnessed the talent of its 2024 signee CJ Carr in the spring game, a testament to the uniqueness of our program. 

We also know that 2025 commit Deuce Knight is one of the best gunslingers in his class. And then there’s its 2026 commit in Noah Grubbs

It’s hard to name a team in all of college football that’s had the kind of run the Notre Dame football team has recently had in recruiting the quarterback position. The Michigans, Georgias, and Ohio States have had success, but the Irish feel like they’ve topped them all regarding sheer talent in successive classes. \

Grubbs' selection by the Fighting Irish was no accident. His performance at the Under Armour Future 50 camp, where he showcased his skills and discussed his decision to join Notre Dame, was a clear demonstration of why the program wanted him.

One clip swirling around social media showed Grubbs showing off his cannon of an arm and hit Houston commit Keisean Henderson with a very nice looking pass. That was part one of him showing off ND wanted to lock him down as soon as possible.

He also told Irish Breakdown how he looks back on his decision.

“I went to all the spring visits and Notre Dame was the first that I went to,” Grubbs said. “They just set the bar so high. The other colleges were great but they were just a little under Notre Dame. I just asked myself what was going to change for the other colleges to be on top of Notre Dame and make me change my mind, and the answer was nothing. I wanted to make my decision early and build a great class.”

It would be hard to hear that as a Notre Dame football fan and not love to hear that sort of thing.
