Bulls Offer Pittsburgh QB

Summer hasn't even started and the Bulls are already hot on the recruiting trail. They recently offered a 6'1, 200 pound QB from Pittsburgh who threw for over 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior. Find out more in this exclusive recruiting update. Only on USFNation.com!

Last year the Bulls landed two prospects out of Georgia, already this season they are going out-of-state again. This time they are after one of the top gunslingers in Pittsburgh. Tino Sunseri is a 6-foot-1, 200 pounds quarterack who runs a 4.7 40 time. He has been a starter at quarterback for Weddington since his freshman year. Tino is an outstanding dual-threat quarterback that has a strong and accurate arm. He's also very quick and can do a lot of damage running the football.

South Florida is not the only team in the South who has taken notice. Sunseri has offers from Florida State, Louisville, Southern Miss and also Buffalo. Last year this pro-style QB threw for over 2,000 yards with 18 touchdowns and only 5 picks, he did all this with an extremely accurate 63% completion rate.

Right now he does not have a top team, but the Bulls could have the inside track.

"My dad used to coach with Troy Douglas (Bulls DB coach) at Michigan State." Sunseri added, "I've known Troy for a long time, he and my dad are still good friends. I text with coach Douglas a lot, he's great. I know he'll always be straight forward and tell it how it is."

Tino's fathers name is Sal Sunseri he was a defensive line coach for the Carolina Panthers. He was also an All-American linebacker at Pittsburgh and went on to become an assistant and ace recruiter for schools such as LSU and Michigan State.

Tino says his entire family will help with his decision. However he is in no rush. His plan is to pick 4 or 5 schools that interest him by the time summer starts and those will be the schools he tries to visit either over the summer or in the fall. Until then, Tino will continue to throw, workout and run everyday.

Normally recruits say their biggest factors in a decision are staying close to home and playing time. Not this QB.

"I don't mind moving. I think playing in the south would be a good opportunity for me. It doesn't bother me at all."

As far as competition goes Sunseri said, "That doesn't bother either. Competing is part of the game. Plus, good programs have good players and if I want to start at one of those schools I'm going to have to earn the job."

Tino is certainly a competitor and gets a lot of his knowledge and confidence from his father who has been around the game a long time and seen it all.

This summer he plans on making it to an Elite 11 camp in Atlanta and a showcase camp in Cleveland. He will make other visits, but right now he's undecided on where he'll go. Stick with USFNation and find out if USF makes his top 5 by the summer.
