ATHENS - I get why Georgia Bulldog fans are going bonkers over Kirby Smart landing 5-star QB Dylan Raiola. He’s the No. 1 prospect in the country. He’s been compared to Super Bowl winning QB Patrick Mahomes, who according to FanDuel, gives the Kansas City Chiefs +600 odds to win the Super Bowl next season.

So yes, landing Raiola was a BIG deal.

But offensive coordinator Mike Bobo has another quarterback on the commit list as well in four-star, Ryan Puglisi‍.

 The 6-foot-2 200-pounder from Connecticut committed to the Bulldogs back in October for a reason. He wants to be the quarterback for the University of Georgia. While he originally committed to Todd Monken, Puglisi has fallen in love with the Georgia program and everything that presents. He can play in the SEC, compete for championships, and play alongside elite talent the entire way.

He’s accurate, he can run, and he’s a competitor. 

Puglisi knew all along that the Bulldogs had plans to take two quarterbacks in the 2024 class after not signing one in the previous class.

He was fine with it. Because he’s a competitor. He’s a talented kid, and he knows what he can do on the football field.

Dawg Post was able to obtain exclusive practice clips of Georgia’s four-star QB commit that you won’t find anywhere else.

As a prospect, Puglisi checks all the boxes at quarterback. He has impressive arm strength, he’s consistently accurate, shows great footwork in the pocket, and can take off with his legs for a big gain. He understands the position, has a high football IQ, and has the potential to make every throw at the collegiate level.

As good as Raiola is, Georgia fans need to recognize how good Puglisi is as well.

Puglisi’s head coach at Old Avon Farms, Jonathan Wholley, spoke with Dawg Post about what the Bulldogs are getting in Puglisi.

“He’s an elite thrower of the football but he’s becoming a great quarterback as well. He just throws the ball effortlessly and understands the game and what he needs to do. He knows how to be a QB, working to be the best leader that he can be. He knows how to work and he’s developing as a quarterback, processing the information and seeing the big picture.”

His arm talent is easy to see, but Puglisi knows how to make plays with his feet as well. He shows great footwork in the pocket, can throw accurately on the run, and can take off for a big gain if he needs too.

“He runs about a 4.8”, Wholley added. “He’s a good athlete. Again, he’s a draftable shortstop and basketball player. He’s had multiple 20 and 30 yard runs for us this year.”

In just nine games as a junior in 2022, Puglisi was 133/207 passing (63%) for 1,904 yards (211 ypg) with 16 TDs and just four INTs. He also ran for 14 touchdowns on the year.
