Deuce Knight, a longtime Notre Dame football commit, has consistently demonstrated his loyalty to the Fighting Irish, even in the face of swirling rumors. This unwavering commitment is a testament to his character and dedication to the team. 

Despite quite a bit of talk that the 4-star gunslinger is looking to stay closer to home, he’s only talked positively about ND, including referring to the program as “we.” And then there’s the way he reps the program with his undeniable skills.

Take this week, when Knight showed once again what Notre Dame football is getting by taking home the MVP award for the recent Elite 11 camp. While it turns out there was some disagreement on who was the best quarterback at the camp, On3 was unequivocal about its choice. Knight is the guy.

On3 made it clear exactly why its analysts believed that Knight deserved the award.

"Deuce Knight gets the nod in a very tight four-man race for the On3 MVP after turning in a consistent three days of performances with the most legitimate ‘wow’ moments of any Elite 11 finalist. He showcased his physical upside and high-end arm talent on Day 1 and was the On3 MVP on Day 2 with the best pro day of the group. There were several eye-raising moments from his workout on Day 2 that were among the top highlights from the week. Knight backed that up with a good showing during Thursday’s 7-on-7 portion. His arm talent was among the best on hand and he was able to operate well within the structure of this camp setting. We were also impressed with Knight’s movement skills over the course of the week. The speed and depth of his drops were among the best on hand.”

It’s worth pointing out that this is the second camp MVP award Deuce Knight has won. Previously he took home MVP honors at the recent OT7 tournament. The Lucedale (Miss.) George County star is poised for a monster final season before hopefully joining the Notre Dame football program.
