Dante Reno, a 4-star quarterback recruit out of Fiskdale, Massachusetts (The Loomis Chaffee School), has set his plans to announce a commitment and a pair of SEC programs are in the mix.
Reno, who is the No. 18 quarterback in the class of 2024, and the No. 3 player in his state, according to the 247Sports Composite. South Carolina and Kentucky are in the mix, along with Purdue, N.C. State, Virginia and Wake Forest, according to Brian Dohn of 247Sports.

“The biggest thing for me, being a coach’s kid, I kind of had a different outlook on the whole process so in my mind, I wanted to commit before my junior season,” he told Dohn. “That is when it starts rolling for quarterbacks. Kids will start committing this summer, and kids have committed before me.
“So in my mind I had a timetable set. That was the whole process for me.”
Because he goes to a boarding school, and his dad coaches at Yale, it’s a unique recruitment in terms of coaching and academics.
“It was finding the balance between football, being developed, and also being able to live my life outside of football drove me to my decision,” he said.
