It will be very interesting to see what QB they end up getting in this cycle. I think they are in the top 2 for 3 of those elite QBs mentioned. Hart, Grubbs, and Lyons; if I had to pick now, it would be Hart.

I think Smigiel is universally seen as the best QB in the class, but it is honestly pretty close. I don't know if there is a generational QB in this class, but there are a ton of ELITE QB prospects in 2026; very loaded class.

I'm really interested to follow as well. It seems like ND is in great shape for those three, plus Brady Smigiel from CA (Oregon and ND are reportedly Top 2). The rankings are a little all over the place for these four guys. I think Smigiel and Hart would be my top two choices. Wilfong has a crystal ball for ND to land Hart. And Grubbs visited ND over the weekend. ND is in a great spot.

On3 Consensus: Lyons (#5 overall, #1 QB), Smigiel (#42 overall, #4 QB), Hart (#110 overall, #9 QB), Grubbs (#113 overall, #10 QB)

247: Smigiel (#42 overall, #4 QB) is the only one in the Top 100 (247 doesn't have a Top 247 for the 2026 class yet)

Rivals: Smigiel (#4 overall, #1 QB), Lyons (#6 overall, #2 QB), Grubbs (#44 overall, #5 QB), Hart (#49 overall, #6 QB)

Got to looking at OT Jackson Cantwell, kid is a mammoth.  Winning a state title in shot put as a freshman.  Of course his dad got a silver medal at the '08 Olympics, so the bloodlines are there.  He'll easily be one of the most sought after recruits in his class.
