RAWRCATZ! + 1: Jacob Welter
Earlier today the RAWRCATZ! picked up their newest commitment in OL Jacob Welter. Welter is a 3 star guard who currently plies his trade for Monte Vista HS in Danville, California. While it appears that the RAWRCATZ! were his only offer he was receiving interest from a number of BCS level programs including Cal, Michigan and Nebraska.
Welter becomes the sixth member of the 2011 class (the things RAWRCATZ! miss while they go down for a long summer's nap) but the first non-JC player to commit from outside of the state of Ohio. Starting a runnin' RAWRCATZ! pipeline to one of the more talented HS football states sounds like a good plan to us, and we are happy to see some more kids from out west make their mark in the green fields of Athens in the years to come.
