All 105 is a Pittsburgh Sports Now series profiling each of the 105 members of Pitt’s 2021 training camp roster.
18 • Eli Kosanovich, redshirt sophomore quarterback
Last Year: Kosanovich, who is 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, didn’t play any games in 2020, but he still managed to make contributions off the field, reaching out to his high school teammate M.J. Devonshire and helping to recruit him to Pitt.
Stats: Kosanovich hasn’t taken a snap for the Panthers.
Camp outlook: Kosanovich remains buried on the depth chart, but with two years at Pitt in offensive coordinator Mark Whipple’s system, he has an opportunity as a leader in the locker room.
Projected role: All but two of the quarterbacks on Pitt’s roster have appeared in a game: one is first-year Nate Yarnell and the other is Kosanovich. With a full depth chart ahead of him, he probably won’t play in 2021.
Accolades, highlights: Kosanovich had a standout season as a high school senior at Aliquippa (Pa.), recording 3,189 yards and 39 touchdowns on just 260 attempts as he led the team to a state championship.
