North Attleborough's Jette commits to Brown

1/28/2013

North Attleborough football senior Alex Jette has committed to Brown, he told ESPN Boston this weekend.

The 6-foot-1, 165-pound athlete made his decision after taking his official visit with the Bears last weekend.

Aside from receiving an Ivy League education, Jette cited the ability to play wide receiver as an influencing factor.

"The ability to play wide receiver in a throwing offense and the proximity to play in front of family and friends twenty minutes away from home were major factors," Jette said, "also to play in a program with a coaching staff and Coach [Phil] Estes that has been in place for almost 20 years."

In his senior season, the Red Rocketeers' senior captain was named a Hockomock League All-Star for a second straight season while amassing nearly 1,000 all-purpose yards of offense despite missing several games due to a broken fibula.
