CFC100 Jett Elad signs with Ohio


There were a lot of options on the board for CFC100 Jett Elad out of St. Ignatius (OH), and plenty of them offered the chance to stick around Ohio for four more years. The star defensive back was entertaining Akron, Cincinnati, Kent State, Youngstown State, Western Michigan, New Mexico State, Buffalo, Eastern Kentucky, Indiana State, Liberty, Robert Morris and Eastern Michigan – one of the lengthier lists you’ll find north of the border.


In the end it was the Ohio Bobcats out of the MAC who grabbed his interest due to their dedicated recruiting staff, and that other Canadian guy named CFC100 Nathan Rourke,

“I chose Ohio because out of all schools they showed me the most love!” Elad says.

“They took a lot of time just to visit me and keep in constant contact with me. It also helped knowing about their Canadian quarterback – who I have heard lots about.”

It also helps the recruiting process when you’ve been playing down south since 2015, which was actually the first time we saw Elad up close at the FPC Showcase when he represented the Mississauga Warriors with pride. He was only listed at 5’6″, 130lbs for that event, but flash forward four years and we’ve now got a 6’0″, 185lbs beast on our hands – and he’s had nothing but American training at the high school level.

Even though his football journey is deeply rooted in America, Elad says one of the main motivators along the way has been making his hometown proud,

“I’m doing everything I can to be the hometown kid that made everyone in Mississauga proud.”

CFC100 Maleek Irons is on campus alongside Rourke, and will take on San Diego State in the Frisco Bowl after finishing the season with an 8-4 record. CFC100 Kurtis Rourke also signed with the Bobcats on Early Signing Day, guaranteeing the Canadian obsession with their program will continue for at least another four years.
