Pitt Extends Offer to Fast-Rising 2024 3-Star QB Miles O’Neill
Jon DiBiaso has really worked to grow Pitt’s foothold in the Northeast over the last few months, extending offers to a number of talented recruits in the class of 2024 and 2025, and the latest is a fast-rising quarterback.
Miles O’Neill — a 6-foot-5, 220-pound three-star quarterback from the Hun School in Princeton, New Jersey — picked up an offer from Frank Cignetti Jr. Wednesday evening, adding to a list of offers that includes Boston College, Columbia, Connecticut, Maryland, Michigan State, Pennsylvania, Princeton, Temple, Vanderbilt and Virginia.
There’s already a connection between Pitt and O’Neill, outside of his relationship with the coaching staff, in that he works with quarterback guru Tony Racioppi.

In just the last week alone, O’Neill’s recruiting process has exploded — receiving offers from Pitt, Maryland, Boston College, Virginia, Michigan State, UConn and Temple.
O’Neill spent his junior season at Marblehead High in Massachusetts, leading the Magicians to an 8-2 record, and he’ll play at the Hun School for his senior season. In three games recorded on MaxPreps, he completed 51-of-77 pass attempts (66%) for 653 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions.
He’s a big-bodied quarterback with a very strong arm — and plenty of room to improve as he’s working with Racioppi this offseason. And he’s also a very capable athlete who has played safety on the defensive side of the ball.
The major recruiting services haven’t ranked O’Neill yet, although he holds a 5.6 Rivals Rating, but that will be changing as his recruiting process heats up this summer.
O’Neill is the latest quarterback to be offered by Pitt this spring, and it will be important for him to make it out to campus to build a better relationship with the coaching staff.
There’s still a need for a quarterback in the class of 2024.
Pittsburgh Sports Now will follow up with a deep look into O’Neill.
