Upper St. Clair QB/LB Dakota Conwell issues verbal declaration to Arizona

Written by: on Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

One of Pitt’s top recruits in its 2012 recruiting class has now decided to continue his collegiate football career elsewhere.

Dakota Conwell, a 6’2, 205-pound quarterback/outside linebacker for Upper St. Clair High School, gave a verbal declaration to play football for the University of Arizona Monday, according to national recruiting service Scout.com.  Just six months prior – July 6, to be exact – Conwell had issued a verbal declaration to play football at Pitt under head coach Todd Graham.  Conwell’s declaration to Pitt was not binding, as he couldn’t sign a letter of intent until February.

Rated as a four-star athlete and the No. 30 outside linebacker prospect in all of the 2012 recruiting class, Conwell held offers from Maryland, Toledo and Temple, in addition to Pitt and recently Arizona.  Conwell is Pennsylvania’s No. 2 outside linebacker prospect in this 2012 class, trailing Sto-Rox’ Deaysean Rippy (No. 18), an undeclared four-star prospect who drew more than 30 scholarship offers.

Over the last two seasons, Conwell has played quarterback for USC and proved to be quite the dual threat, running for 2,182 yards and throwing for 2,003 yards while accounting for 18 passing touchdowns and 35 more scores on the ground.  He led the Panthers to the WPIAL AAAA championship game this past season and to the quarterfinals in 2010, posting a record of 18-5 as a varsity starting quarterback (he started the initial series of both halves of the WPIAL title game).

Defensively, Conwell posted 38 tackles (20 solo), an interception and a fumble recovery in his senior season as part of a USC defensive unit, including reserves, which allowed an average of 10.1 points per game, holding 10 of 13 opponents to 14 points or less, with six shutouts.
