Mundt headlines state champion Central Catholic, signs with Oregon | News
MODESTO - Johnny Mundt capped off his senior season of football by helping the Central Catholic Raiders win a CIF State Bowl Title, but today he traded his Raiders hat for a green and gold Oregon Ducks cap.
At 6'5, 235lbs. Mundt is one of the top student athletes to get recruited out of the Sac-Joaquin section. Rivals.com ranked Mundt as the 12th best tight end in the nation after finishing the season with 625 yards and eight touchdowns.
Mundt verbally committed to Oregon last year, but it was still a relief for he and his family to finalize the stressful recruitment process.
"To finally see my name down on the paper (letter of intent) and have it be official, it is a great experience it is finally coming together," Mundt told News10. "I've been dreaming about this day since I was a little kid to play college football, it couldn't be much better."
Joey Abbatte signed a wrestling scholarship with Duke, and Jack Killian had already signed with UNLV to play football.
