Syracuse football QB target Beau Pribula to reveal Aug. 3, PSU big favorite

Beau Pribula, a 2022 three-star quarterback, will pick his college next week, but don’t expect Syracuse football to hear its name called.

Syracuse football target Beau Pribula, a three-star, dual-threat quarterback in the 2022 recruiting cycle, is almost ready to unveil his collegiate destination. And when Pribula does announce on Aug. 3, Orange fanatics shouldn’t feel all that surprised if he opts for a team other than the ‘Cuse.

Per a review of the main recruiting services, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Pribula boasts 13 scholarship offers. Besides Syracuse football, they are from Penn State, Connecticut, Nebraska, Northwestern, Old Dominion, Rutgers, Sacred Heart, Temple, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, West Virginia and Buffalo.

For now, Penn State is deemed the front-runner to land Pribula, who is a rising junior at Central York High School in York, Pa. That’s because four analysts on the 247Sports Web site are forecasting Pribula to the Nittany Lions. The same holds true for one analyst and four publishers on Rivals.com.

Of course, in the fickle recruiting arena, nothing is ever a guarantee until a high-school player makes his selection, so Syracuse football isn’t by any means out of the running for Pribula.

The Orange offered a scholarship to him in mid-April, and the most recent squad to offer Pribula, Northwestern, did so on July 16, according to his bio on the 247Sports Web site.

While not rated by the 247Sports Composite or Rivals.com, Pribula does check in as three stars by 247Sports, with that recruiting service placing him as the No. 10 dual-threat quarterback nationally in the 2022 class, as well as the No. 11 player in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

According to 247Sports, Syracuse football has offered scholarships to a pair of dual-threat quarterbacks in the 2022 recruiting cycle, along with a trio of pro-style QBs.

We recently penned a column detailing the strong interest level between the ‘Cuse and 2022 pro-style quarterback Henry Belin. The three-star Belin, a rising junior at Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, N.Y., presently has the Orange among his top contenders.

My gut tells me that Syracuse football has a better shot of getting Belin than Pribula, but let’s wait until this coming Monday to see where Pribula is heading.
