Jacobs junior quarterback Chris Katrenick (6-foot-2, 195 pounds) decided to end his recruiting process tonight and gave Bowling Green his verbal commitment.
Katrenick, who according to Rivals.com is the state's top ranked quarterback in the Class of 2017, didn't want the opportunity to play for the Falcons slip away.
"Quarterback recruiting is just so different compared to a lot of other spots," Katrenick said. "Once a few guys start to make decision it seems like everyone scrambles. My plan was to originally wait until after the spring evaluation period. I just felt that I didn't want to wait to make my decision. The last thing I wanted to happen was to find out all of a sudden that my spot was taken at Bowling Green by someone else."
Katrenick, a three-star recruit who was drawing strong spring looks from Cincinnati, Indiana along with multiple Mid American Conference schools, is also excited to play under new head coach Mike Jinks and staff.
"I love the new coaches at Bowling Green," he said. "They plan to run a very similar style of uptempo offense that the old staff ran at Bowling Green. It's going to be a very quarterback friendly offense and it's pretty exciting to be a Falcon."
