Allentown Central Catholic (PA) quarterback Brendan Nosovitch was among the quarterbacks competing at the Penn State Elite 11 camp on Friday. He worked his way into a select group of five quarterbacks who earned a yellow shirt, earning a title of ‘Golden Gun Accuracy.'
"It had to do with the accuracy drill," Nosovitch explained. "You had five groups of ten. Each group, they took one person from it, and I had the opportunity to go to the finals of it, and I did pretty well. I went through the first round. The second round, I struggled a little bit, but it went real good."
Overall, Nosovitch felt like there was a lot he could take from some of the drills he went through on Friday.
"I definitely picked up a lot of drills, a lot of techniques," Nosovitch said. "The coaches do a great job with that. There's a lot of guys. It was a good experience. Knowing what we did here, I kind of worked on everything. I just focused on the drops. I've been working on that in the offseason. Being in a shotgun offense, you don't do that too much. I got to do that a lot more."
Nosovitch has offers from South Carolina, Temple and Virginia—which takes the initial pressure off of him, in just getting that first offer. Knowing that he has the opportunity to go play football somewhere, and have his education taken care of, he is turning his focus on getting more offers. He feels there are a couple of in-state schools close to offering him next.
"There's some schools," Nosovitch said. "Pitt and Penn State, and North Carolina, Duke, Boston College, Northwestern. There's a bunch of schools that I've been keeping in contact with. They're coming to see me throw."
Pitt quarterbacks coach Todd Dodge was planning to come see Nosovitch throw this past Friday. That visit was delayed as a result of Nosovitch participating in the Elite 11 camp.
"They were supposed to come (Friday), to see me throw at school, but I was at (Elite 11 camp)," Nosovitch said. "They cancelled it, and will come later. I talked to (quarterbacks) coach (Todd) Dodge. He's coming up. I was talking to him a couple weeks ago. It didn't work out because I was at (Elite 11 camp), but he's going to come up and see me."
He was already at the Pitt junior day, but adds that Pitt is a school definitely worth keeping in touch with.
"Yeah, definitely," Nosovitch said of the Panthers. "Being in Pennsylvania, I like Pitt basketball. I've always been a fan. I'm definitely interested. It would be exciting to get an offer from them."
He hasn't started planning his summer visits, but Nosovitch wouldn't mind getting back to Pittsburgh at some point to take another look around.
"Possibly, I could go back there in the summer," Nosovitch added. "I haven't planned anything anywhere yet, any camps. I don't know where I'm going yet. It will probably happen soon. (Dodge) is coming to see me throw. I do know about that."
