Late last month news broke of 5-star quarterback Dylan Raiola transferring from Chandler to Pinnacle.
Now Raiola, widely considered the top prospect at his position in the 2024 class, will get some help front with the addition of a former Wolves’ teammate.

The athletic Dudley, versatile enough to play tackle or guard, started last season as a sophomore at Chandler. With experience at both right and left tackle, he could eventually replace former Pinnacle star exterior linemen Elijah Paige, a one-time Notre Dame commit, who signed with USC this winter and is already enrolled and participating in Lincoln Riley’s program.
Dana Zupke’s team up front returns offlinemen Krush Sowers, Travis Gutierrez, Grant Smith, and Frankie Gleash – who all saw extensive action last fall.
Pinnacle finished last season 9-5, falling to Highland 37-26 in the 6A state championship game. The ‘Neers upset top-seed Casteel in the semi-finals..
