The recruiting process is starting to heat up for Revere senior football player Jason Tretter.
Revere coach Phil Heyn said Tretter, an offensive tackle and defensive end who missed all of his junior year to injury, has one scholarship offer and several other schools showing interest.
Kent State offered Tretter a scholarship on Wednesday. Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Northwestern are also interested in the 6-foot-7, 305-pound Tretter, who is nearly 100 percent recovered.
“Jason missed all of last year with a knee injury, which dramatically stunted his recruiting process,” Heyn said. “I believe he would be committed to a major football program already if not for the injury.
“Prior to the injury, he was high on the list for most major football schools. After the injury, most schools took a wait-and-see position.”
Tretter has a 3.7 grade-point-average and scored a 29 on his ACT.
“Jason is a D-I player, just a matter of what level,” Heyn said. “He has great size and is still growing into his body. He will develop even more as he gets older. He is a good athlete with long arms and great feet.”
Tretter also played basketball and baseball at Revere.
“The best part about Jason is the type of kid he is,” Heyn said. “He is a polite, smart and overall great young man. He would run through a wall for this program, for his teammates and his coaches.”
