Cromwell senior Jason Morrill has committed to play soccer at the University of Rhode Island next fall.
“Very excited to announce my commitment to play Division I soccer at the University of Rhode Island! Thank you to my family, coaches, teammates and friends who have helped me along the way,” stated Morrill upon making his commitment in December.
Morrill was born and raised in Cromwell and has been playing on the Glastonbury-based Oakwood Soccer Club teams for nine years. The clubs team play year round, so he was unable to play for the soccer team at Cromwell High, yet he is an honor roll student at CHS and was part of Student Council and National Honor society.
At URI, Morrill plans to major in finance and will join his Rams teammates on the soccer field next fall.
“I really liked the coaching staff and they see me having a good future there. There is a very competitive atmosphere on the team and the coaches were talking to me about how everything is earned not given there. The environment also sounded like it was very similar to where I play now at Oakwood which interested me and was important to me,” stated Morrill, “The soccer program has been getting better each year and are continuing to grow as they have been back to back A10 champions. The Atlantic 10 conference is very competitive and is a good fit for my playing style. URI is also relatively close to home so my family are able to come watch my games.”
