Can Louisville steal three-star QB from Pitt?

Zach Stoudt is currently committed to Pittsburgh. But the 6'5, 210 pound three-star quarterback from Dublin, Ohio just picked up an offer from rival Louisville. With a crowded situation in Pittsburgh, will Stoudt keep his options open and consider the Cardinals offer?

Zach Stoudt is currently committed to Pittsburgh. But the 6'5, 210 pound three-star quarterback from Dublin, Ohio just picked up an offer from rival Louisville. With a crowded situation in Pittsburgh, will Stoudt keep his options open and consider the Cardinals offer?

"I did pick up an offer from Louisville last week but I'm still committed to Pittsburgh," said Stoudt, who threw for 3595 yards and 34 touchdowns this season. "I received a phone call from coach (Jeff) Brohm. He just called me and said that they were going to offer me."


Stoudt will listen to Louisville.

The quarterback situation at Pittsburgh looks to be getting a little crowded. Pittsburgh's starting quarterback, Pat Bostick, returns next season and has three years of eligibility remaining. Dave Wannstedt also has loaded up his 2008 recruiting class with three quarterback commits – Stoudt, JUCO transfer Greg Cross and Pittsburgh native Tino Sunseri, a former Louisville commit.

"I committed to Pittsburgh and that's where I want to go but I'm sure I'll look at Louisville and see what it's like and see what's there," Stoudt said. "I might take a visit to Louisville but I don't know yet. We haven't really talked about it."

The 6'4 quarterback said he plans to keep an open line of communication with Louisville. "I'm talking to them, yeah," Stoudt said. "I only get one phone call per week. I'll probably be talking with them sometime this week. They lost (Brian) Brohm obviously. They have a fifth-year senior, a sophomore and another redshirt (freshman). Those are the only three scholarship quarterbacks they have."

Despite Pittsburgh's three current quarterback commitments, Stoudt doesn't sound concerned about a logjam with the Panters. "It's not really a concern to me," Stoudt said. "I feel pretty confident in my abilities. I'm not really worried about it. There's going to be competition wherever I go."
