AVON, CT - Kirby Smart, Todd Monken, and the Georgia Bulldogs have one of the best quarterbacks in the country on the commit list.

No, it’s not Arch Manning or anyone else in the 2023 class.

It’s junior quarterback Ryan Puglisi out of Old Avon Farms (CT)

The 6-foot-3 205-pound gunslinger publicly committed to Georgia on October 16, giving Todd Monken a commitment from one of the top quarterbacks in the 2024 class.

Puglisi recently spoke with Christian McCollum of Irish Sports Daily about why he committed to Georgia and Tod Monken.

“It all started with coach Monken last spring when he came up to watch me throw,” Puglisi said. “That’s when the ball started rolling with Georgia. Even before I had an offer I knew coach Monken was a guy I definitely wanted to play for. We connected right away even before I had an offer. I went down to Georgia in June and that’s when they offered me. It was just a great experience. It was a no-brainer to commit after meeting the rest of the staff.”

“They’re a really explosive team”, Puglisi added. “They put up a lot of points just about every game so that was really appealing to me. To play down there and have playmakers around me and know that if something’s not going well, we can always run the ball because of what they’re created there with the offensive line and the backs they’re bringing in. I was super excited about that.”

Puglisi earned his offer in June, and made it back to Athens for Georgia’s game against Vanderbilt in October. Sources say the four-star was privately committed to Georgia during that visit, but made his commitment public a few days later. 

McCollum also spoke with Puglisi’s personal quarterback coach, Tommy Guy, the Director of Football Development at ESA of New England.

“I think Georgia is the perfect fit for Ryan”, Guy said. “One thing that I don’t think people know about Ryan is they see all the throws he can make and they see he has as strong an arm as anyone in the country, but he’s also really athletic and strong. He’s got the mental toughness and the attributes you need to play at a high level. I think the difference between some guys that can run and the guys who can run in the SEC is the wear and tear on their body. Ryan is 6-foot-3 and 205-pounds, but he’s a tough kid. He might not get you 40 or 50 yards a carry but he’ll consistently get you 8 or 12 yards when you need it. He’s going to open up so many more things in their offense. Him going to Georgia and still having room to improve, he’s going to be with the best coaches, the best players, and he’s going to keep improving with everything around him. He’s already as good as anyone in his class in the country, and with room to improve, he’s going to be at a whole different level at Georgia after a year or two.”
