Agnone played QB this season for coach Frank Gay's Red Land team. He threw for 1,490 yards and 13 TD's. Last season Rob played TE/WR and caught 49 passes for 429 yards and 10 TD's.
James Madison and Akron were recruiting Agnone as a QB. Several Bigger schools have been in contact with Agnone - Georgia Tech, Virginia, and North Carolina among others. Rob had some offers from smaller Division 1 A programs for basketball as well, but has recently realized football is his best chance for success.
Rob currently weighs 220 lbs. and would like to get to 240-260. He is not sure if he will join the class of 2004 or take a gray shirt. Agnone visited Pitt last weekend and was hosted by Steve Buches, and Tom Freeman was the main recruiter for Agnone.
"I love the whole city atmosphere" and "Pitt's facilities are second to none," said Agnone. Rob also runs a 4.75 40 yd. dash and vertical jumps 31 inches.
