Ohio State football commit for the class of 2017, Jake Moretti, suffered a knee injury at the Buckeyes’ One Day Position Camp on Friday. The injury will likely cost the offensive lineman to miss his senior high school season.
The injury was first reported by Eleven Warriors, and according to the report, Moretti is believed to have torn his ACL, and will be returning home to Colorado for treatment. This an unfortunate piece of news for Ohio State’s 2017 recruiting class, nearly a week after 2017 five-star quarterback Tate Martell committed to the Buckeyes.
Moretti posted the following message on his Twitter account Saturday afternoon:
Moretti, a four-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite, committed to the Buckeyes on July 4 last year. Moretti, along with five-star Josh Myers out of Miamisburg, OH, are the Buckeyes’ two offensive line prospects in the class. According to the report, Ohio State plans to keep Moretti in the class, where he will enroll early.
Best of luck to Moretti in his rehabilitation.
