Pitt FB Recruiting

After In-Person Evaluation, Pitt Offers Sophomore Quarterback Ryan Puglisi



With the commitment from 2023 four-star quarterback Kenny Minchey, Pitt is looking a class ahead and working on developing a relationship with and recruiting a signal-caller for the class of 2024.

As Pittsburgh Sports Now has been reporting on, the Pitt staff led by Frank Cignetti Jr. and Jonathan DiBiaso have offered a number of sophomore quarterbacks over the last few weeks.

Monday evening, another target was added to that long list as Pitt extended an offer to 2024 three-star quarterback Ryan Puglisi.

Puglisi (6-foot-3, 195 pounds) attends Avon Old Farms High School in Avon, Connecticut and currently holds 10+ offers, including ones from West Virginia, Ole Miss, Minnesota, Indiana, Duke, UConn, Boston College, Akron and Temple.

“I found out about the offer when Coach Cignetti came and watched me throw,” Puglisi told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “He pulled me off to the side of the field and let me know that they wanted to offer me a full scholarship. I was pumped. I love the direction Pitt is going in. They just won their conference championship and I am super excited about them as a program. Knowing and trusting Coach Cignetti for a few months now, I am excited to keep building a relationship wiht him and looking forward to seeing what the program can do in the future.

One of the reasons that Puglisi might have caught the eye of the Panthers staff is his style of play is similar to the quarterback that led them to that ACC championship last year.

“I feel like I have a similar style of play to Kenny Pickett,” Puglisi said. “Kenny is a playmaker and that is something that I feel is a strength of mine. He can make all throws and can run when they needed him to. Overall, he was just a great athlete and quarterback. I feel as if I could run the offense just like Pickett did.”

Puglisi tells PSN that he’s in the process of scheduling unofficial visits, and it’s likely he travels to Pittsburgh this summer for an unofficial visit to Pitt.
