Pine-Richland’s Eli Jochem, one of the WPIAL’s top receivers, announced his first Division I offer Monday from Fordham.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound rising senior ranked third among WPIAL players last season in receptions (71) and receiving yards (1,065). He scored 14 touchdowns for Pine-Richland, the runner-up in WPIAL Class 6A.

Fordham is coached by former Pitt defensive lineman Joe Conlin. The Rams went 4-8 overall last season, 2-3 in the Patriot League in Conlin’s second year.
