It didn’t take long for a Wisconsin Badgers target to verbally pledge to his home state team.
Goetz boasts on his highlight tape a 6’4, 225-pound frame that helped him record 103 tackles (49 solo, 54 assisted), 11 tackles for loss and six sacks during the 2016 season. The junior’s success on the field earned him first-team all-state honors last year by both the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association (WFCA) and the Associated Press.
According to Catholic Memorial’s official football website, he registered eight tackles and two sacks in the Crusaders’ 24-14 victory in the 2016 WIAA Division 3 championship game.
As mentioned yesterday by B5Q, he announced earlier this month that he was invited to the Under Armour All-American camp series.
Goetz is the fourth commit for the class of 2018 for Wisconsin—the second in-state verbal pledge—which includes River Rouge, Mich., defensive back Reggie Pearson, Menasha, Wis., safety Trent Ingalls and La Grange, Ill., quarterback Ben Bryant.
