Notre Dame quarterback Tyler Buchner has entered the NCAA transfer portal to explore his options for his future, making him the most talented quarterback to enter the portal this spring. He has a red exclamation point on his portal entry, indicating that he does not want to be contacted by teams. Buchner is going to be selective and targeted in his search, with former Notre Dame offensive coordinator Tommy Rees moving to Alabama, Alabama could be a logical landing spot for Buchner, while other schools including TCU and Stanford have shown interest in portal quarterbacks this spring.
Buchner began the 2022 season as the starter in the first two games against Ohio State and Marshall before suffering a shoulder injury against Marshall. Buchner’s eligibility will remain for three years due to him playing just three games during the 2022 season as a sophomore, which makes him eligible for a redshirt season, entering the 2023 season as a junior. Buchner had offers out of high school from multiple programs, including Alabama, TCU, Georgia, USC and Michigan.
Alabama are lacking a clear-cut starter at quarterback after struggling during the spring game, throwing a combined three interceptions while completing fewer than half of their passes. The Crimson Tide are looking at the transfer portal as a possible solution at the position. Buchner would continue to battle Sam Hartman for the starting job if he returned to Notre Dame. Hartman transferred to the Irish as the ACC career leader in touchdown passes with 110 in five seasons at Wake Forest, and is second in ACC history with 12,967 career passing yards.
