In last-minute development, Yelm’s Kyler Ronquillo decides to join Princeton football
Informed his scholarship to Portland State University was no longer available, the all-state wide receiver gets second opportunity with Ivy League program
From Scorebook Live:
Typical of his football-playing style, Yelm’s Kyler Ronquillo was left in scramble mode in recruiting.
A longtime Portland State University pledge, the Tornados’ multi-year all-state wide receiver was informed the week before signing day that his scholarship offer was no longer available.
Suddenly, he was a teenager without a next-level home. Most of the universities that once recruited him had already filled their 2023 recruiting class, and had no money left to offer.
And it all came together quickly as Ronquillo, after a quick cross-country visit, decided to sign in the Ivy League as a cornerback with Princeton University.
“Portland State left me with $1 in my pocket,” Ronquillo said, “and I bought a lottery ticket and won.”
At the time of signing day Feb. 1, Ronquillo was the highest-ranked unsigned senior prospect in Washington at No. 25, according to 247Sports.com.
