Pitt’s quarterbacks room has undergone a lot of change over the past couple of seasons, shifting from Kenny Pickett to Kedon Slovis to Phil Jurkovec over the last year.
Quarterbacks have transferred in and out of the program, committed and decommitted and everything in between. But the search for potential talent has never stopped.
That includes an offer extended to IMG Academy post-grad quarterback David Lynch. Lynch, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound recruit who played for Bishop Hendricken in Warwick, Rhode Island, received a preferred walk-on offer from Jon DiBiaso Thursday.
Lynch has received walk-on opportunities from Pitt and Rhode Island.

Lynch guided IMG to a post-grad national championship this year, throwing for 231 yards and four touchdowns in the first half of the victory. Lynch accounted for over 20 touchdowns on the season, leading IMG to a 9-2 season.
He took his post-grad year at IMG after originally playing for Bishop Hendricken in Rhode Island. As a senior, he threw for 942 yards and nine touchdowns and added two more touchdowns on the ground.
Lynch is a big-framed quarterback with a strong arm and a rugged athleticism.
Pitt currently has walk-on quarterbacks in Jake Frantl (Erin, Wisconsin) and Eli Kosanovich (Aliquippa, Pennsylvania). Former IMG post-grad Thomas Aden committed to Pitt as a PWO before last season.
