Jake Hausmann is thrilled and appreciative that he will get to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January. He just couldn’t tell us that Tuesday.
See, Hausmann had his tonsils removed after the season so his speaking voice wasn’t in great shape when the Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance came to Archbishop Moeller in Cincinnati.
He now will get to do his talking on the field when he gets to San Antonio.
An Ohio State commit at tight end, Hausmann was a late addition to the roster, but his inclusion is no less sweet. He is ranked as the No. 3 tight end and No. 6 player overall from Ohio, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
He had 50 receptions for 714 yards (14.3 ypc.) and 11 touchdowns and is the third Cincinnati area player scheduled to take part. He will join Elder offensive lineman Tommy Kraemer (Notre Dame commit) and La Salle punter Drue Chrisman (Ohio State).
