2013 Intro: East Lake (Fla) QB

Pete DiNovo is a standout quarterback from East Lake High and so lets take a closer look at him as a prospect.

Name: QB Pete DiNovo

School: East Lake HS (Tarpon Springs, Fla)

Size: 6-3/210

2011 season stats: DiNovo finished his junior season 170-of-251 passing with 2,426 yards and 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also added 193 yards and four scores on the ground for a team that went a couple rounds into the state playoffs.

Grades: 3.8 GPA/no test yet

Recruiting: "Top four is FSU, Auburn, Alabama, and North Carolina," DiNovo said. "No offers yet but within the next two weeks should have one from UCF."

"I'll be looking for how it feels when I'm there, the coaches and style of offense they run, and the other kids they are recruiting," he said when asked what he'll be looking for when choosing a school.

As a Prospect: DiNovo is coming off an excellent junior season, when he became one of the state's leading passers. He led his team into the state playoffs. He has a lot of the size you look for in a major college quarterback prospect. He's a good student who understands the game very well. He has enough athleticism to make some plays with his legs. He doesn't have any offers as of early April but expect that to change this spring as he continues to emerge as one of the state's better quarterback prospects in the 2013 class.
