Offers Starting To Come For Kurz

Rob Kurz, a junior at Penn Charter, is having a big season. Colleges are starting to lock in and make him a priority recruit in the Class of 2004.

Offers Starting To Come In

Last Friday, junior forward Rob Kurz scored 26 points as Penn Charter knocked off the other undefeated team in its league, Malvern Prep. The win makes Penn Charter 17-2 on the season.

Kurz has been a huge key to his team's success. He's played a versatile role for his high school team. "I guess I have been playing a lot of inside because most of the high school teams don't have a lot of size. But, my coach does a good job of moving me inside and outside. My coach knows I'm more of a perimeter player."

Most of the schools recruiting Kurz at doing so with thoughts of him at the small forward slot. "Some schools said they run a four out and motion. For them, I'm the fourth guy on the perimeter. Most schools are recruiting me as a small forward."

Indiana, Notre Dame, Villanova, St. Joseph's, Virginia, Syracuse and Stanford are among his most ardent suitors. The Hoosiers, Irish, Wildcats and Hawks have already pledged offers.

Kurz said that he is in the process of receiving an application to Stanford. Prior to the season, Kurz visited Notre Dame and that trip went very well. He's visiting Indiana March 1 for the Hoosiers game against Iowa. The trip could be an official one if he chooses but right now Kurz thinks it'll be an unofficial visit. Villanova, St. Joseph's and Virginia were schools he saw last season.

Kurz will play this summer with Frank Burg's New Jersey All-Stars.
