Pomona offensive lineman, Moretti, commits to Buckeyes for 2016-17 season
Highlights from Pomona vs Cherry Creek with Jake Moretti (#73)
KUSA — Pomona Panther offensive lineman, Jake Moretti, committed to Ohio State University on the 4th of July. The 6-foot-5, 285 pound lineman, was a crucial big body up front for the Panthers and will be for the next two years.
The new commit is entering his junior season of football and decided early on that the Buckeyes were a good fit for him. “The expectations there are really high and made them unique,” Moretti said.
However, he still has two seasons of high school left before he heads off to Columbus. “I just need to continue to grow as a player and not get complacent,” Moretti said about his remaining seasons with the Panthers before college.
The team went 9-3 last season with a big win against Cherry Creek (eventual 2014-15 State Champs) in the second game of the season. The Panthers made it all the way to the 5A football quarterfinals before being eliminated by the state runner-up, Valor Christian.
