The Notre Dame football team has identified two quarterback targets it would like to see call South Bend home. Noah Grubbs and Brady Hart have long been at the top of the Fighting Irish most wanted list. Earlier this week, Grubbs showed once again why Marcus Freeman, Gino Guidugli and Mike Denbrock are so keen to land him.

Grubbs took to X on Thursday to announce he was named the Seminole County Athlete of the Year for the 2023 football season. That's hardly surprising, considering he threw for over 3,000 yards, 49 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions in his sophomore season.

Big things are expected for his junior and senior seasons. Anyone who can win that kind of award when he's just coming into his own is obviously one that Notre Dame would love to have eventually slinging the football for the Fighting Irish.

The question now is just where do they stand these days with Noah Grubbs?

Notre Dame's top QB target takes home big-time award

This spring, there has been a lot of talk about Freeman and company's pursuit of Noah Grubbs and Brady Hart. Both have been given Crystal Balls for the Irish within weeks of each other. 

However, it's long been thought that Notre Dame would pull off quite the coup if it could get both. It's long been a race between the two prospects based on who commits first. 

Earlier this week, Hart received a new offer from a school closer to his Florida home in the Louisville Cardinals. It's a safe bet that there's at least some pull there, if he decides he wants to go somewhere besides Florida.

For now the race is still on for both. Can Notre Dame football find a way to land a quarterback that's been called a "generational talent?" We could find out as soon as later this summer.
