Pat Narduzzi and the Pitt staff added a quarterback to their 2020 roster on Monday, as Logan Clouse out of the Hun School in Princeton, New Jersey, committed to the program as a preferred walk-on. Clouse chose Pitt over a handful of FCS offers.
”Thank you Coach Narduzzi and the rest of the Pitt coaching for believing in me and giving me this opportunity,” Clouse wrote in a message posted on Twitter. “With that being said, I am excited to announce my commitment to the University of Pittsburgh.”
Clouse holds two-star ratings from 247Sports and Rivals, and he was offered by FCS programs Bucknell, Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State. He also showed interest in Boston College and Rutgers in his home state, visiting each school last June. However, he did not draw an offer from either institution.
The 6’2”, 205-pound quarterback has been a starter at the Hun School since 2016, and as a senior, he threw for 1,992 yards and 21 touchdowns while completing 111 of his 163 passes. That brought his completion rate of 68 percent and his quarterback rating to 144. Clouse was also generally able to avoid major mistakes, as he threw just two picks.

At Pitt, Clouse will join Kenny Pickett, Davis Beville, Joey Yellen, Nick Patti and Eli Kosanovich in a crowded quarterback room. Clouse and Kosanovich, a former Aliquippa signal-caller, are currently the only walk-ons in the position group.
