Jake Kretzer has committed to University of Akron
AAU National Champion Jake Kretzer verbally commits to the University of Akron
August 9, 2011

6'7 , 200 lb Wingman, Jake Kretzer gives Coach Dambrot and the Akron Zips a nod prior to the AAU National Tourney.  Jake had several other D1 offers to consider even before the Zips came through.  But, Jake felt like it was the right decision to make at the best time to make it.

Over the past two summers Kretzer has drawn interest from numerous NAIA, DI, DII, & DIII schools. Stacks of mail, letters, and hand-written cards piled-up and phone calls too.

Initially, Kretzer had visited Akron back in 2009 but he also ventured to numerous other campuses to attend elite camps, open gyms, recruiting visits, and as a guest watch ballgames.....to name a few...Xavier, Dayton, Ball State, Miami (OH), Ohio, Albany, Boston College, Eastern Michigan, & West Virginia.  In addition, Kretzer entertained visits at his high school by coaches from William & Mary, Albany, Miami, Stanford, Lafeyette, Belmont, & UNC Wimington.  Outside of the MAC Kretzer was being recruited heavily from the those schools in the IVY League.  Most recently Kretzer had gained the attention of Stanford, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Iowa, & Davidson.  In Kretzer's decision for Akron, he voided scheduled August trips to the campuses of Florida State, Bowling Green, & Davidson.
While in all...Kretzer continues to receive mail & attention from NCAA football programs, too.

At this time Kretzer claims to have found what he is seeking in a basketball program at the University Akron.  Although Kretzer has visited UofA five times already, he will take an unofficial visit to Akron in late August to discuss academic programs.  At this point it is a verbal offer by the Akron Coaching Staff and a Verbal Committment by Kretzer.  The NCAA prohibits players from signing until November.

Kretzer is now an AAU State Champion, an AAU National Champion, and already the owner of a few high school records.  Although his desire is to play for an NCAA Division 1 Championship Basketball Team, his immediate future is focused on Waverly Tigers Basketball & bringing home a third consecutive Sectional Championship and League Titile.
