Pitt Combine: Bostick Top Quarterback

The majority of the attendees at the Scout.com Pitt Combine were from Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio. But Pa.'s top signalcaller made the trip over from the eastern part of the state -- Pat Bostick. Here is GoBlueWolverine's scouting report on Bostick.

Pat Bostick was easily the class of Saturday's Pitt Scout.com Combine QB's. The Lancaster native (Chad Henne's stomping grounds) can easily make all the throws, and his accuracy is good. He has a strong arm and, for a high schooler, a good amount of polish as well.

He clearly takes his quarterbacking seriously, has worked long and hard at it, and has made himself into a top-notch signalcaller.

This blue-collar-type player is the real deal with no obvious weaknesses. He can throw it long or short, and with good accuracy, and has a significantly better arm than last year's elite "PA Pat" signal-caller, Pat Devlin.

We're tempted to say he's a 'shade under 6-3' but he's built like a linebacker at 220 pounds, so his muscled-stockiness (see action photo below) tends to make his look shorter than he is (the photo with Nick Sukay shows that he's a good two-plus inches taller than Sukay).

To me he physically (as far as the 'look test') appears almost like a clone of Chad Henne at the same age -- except Henne was even a little stockier. So as a 'type' comparison -- he's definitely a strong-and-strong-armed QB in the Henne mode. Is that how they grow them over in Lancaster County?

Bostick told GoBlueWolverine that his offer total is now up to five: "Pitt, Ole Miss, Louisville, Maryland, and UConn."

Bostick was a Michigan Junior Day attendee this past January (see GBW post-Junior-Day interview with Bostick).

At the US Army Combine this past January, he was, in GBW"s opinion, the second best quarterback in attendance after the lanky Virginian Peter Lalich.

Bostick was named the Lancaster-Lebanon League Section 1 Outstanding Football Player of the Year. He led the Manheim Township High School Blue Streaks to a 9-2 record in 2005. He threw for 2,810 yards, completed 181-of-295 passes with 34 touchdowns and six interceptions. Bostick was named second team Associated Press Class AAAA All-State and first team All-State by the PA Football News.
