If there is a player in Notre Dame football's 2025 class that you would think they didn't have to worry about, it would be Deuce Knight. And then, you realize that anything could happen. After all, the Georgia Bulldogs lost out on a 5-star quarterback to the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Knowing the state of college football these days is one that provides a ton of questions, perhaps Notre Dame football fans could be excused if they're more than a little nervous about the Alabama Crimson Tide coming after Knight.

The 4-star quarterback announced he'd been "reoffered" by Alabama on Monday and that offer makes some sense. After all, there's a new sheriff in Tuscaloosa. He just so happens to be a coach who knows a thing or two about explosive offenses.

Could Kalen Deboer be someone who could lure Deuce Knight to the SEC? Could he do something that Nick Saban had apparently failed at? He's at least trying.

Deboer is clearly trying to remind Knight that he hails from SEC country. The Lucedale, Mississippi product has to at least feel honored that Alabama is making a kind of renewed charge for his services. On the other hand, it sure feels like the dual-threat quarterback is exactly where he's supposed to be.

Knight certainly has the time to make a change if that's where his heart is leaning. He won't be able to sign on the dotted line until next December. However, it still feels like it would be an incredibly unlikely decommitment.

There are few players around the country that have been working as hard to peer recruit than Deuce Knight has been doing it for Notre Dame football. He was doing that again over the last weekend.

The Fighting Irish had a ton of top prospects and some of their top commits come to town for its first Junior Day of 2024. Knight was in town to let everyone know why they should make South Bend their college home.

The love he shows Notre Dame football is infectious. It feels like it would be crazy to worry about losing him. But Alabama is apparently going to keep coming and so will plenty of other top programs as well.
