Jacobs High School (IL) soon-to-be senior standout Chris Katrenick is the latest class of 2017 prospect to announce his plans to suit up for Mike Jinks, and the new look Bowling Green coaching staff.
"I love the offense, the coaches, the players, the campus, and the academics. It's a great fit for me." The 6'3, 205-pound Katrenick stated to Hustle Belt.
"The staff loves me, and we are all fired up. I think the program is great regardless of who is coaching. Bowling Green fans are awesome and I'm very excited. When I think of Bowling Green I think of championships and the fact that Bowling Green goes into every game expecting to win. It doesn't matter if it's a power five division I program or double AA. I really like that competitive aspect and I hate losing in anything so that is something I really like. I am going to try and recruit every kid that I can because if your an offensive player this is the offense to be in." He added on what made his college decision an easy one.
Accounting for around 2,500 yards passing, and 26 total touchdowns last season as a junior, Katrenick helped lead his Jacobs squad to an overall record of 8-3 and a state playoff berth. According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, the future Falcon is currently considered the 38th pro-style quarterback, and 847th overall prospect in the entire class of 2017.
