Christian Kuntz says the Blue Devils are among the schools putting in work on the recruiting trail

Christian Kuntz was a versatile weapon last season for Trinity High School on both offense and defense, earning first-team All-Area, second-team All-Conference and third-team All-State honors at safety. He was also first-team All-Conference at running back where he carried 115 times for 813 yards and twelve touchdowns.

Camp Hill, Pa., product Christian Kuntz played mostly running back for Trinity High School as a junior, however the 6-foot-4, 190-pound wide receiver prospect also caught 21 passes for 426 yards and four touchdowns in their Wing-T offense. He added 20 tackles and seven interceptions on defense and helped his team get deep into the playoffs.

"I mainly hear from Maryland, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, Duke, Illinois, Boston College and Ivy League programs," Kuntz explained. "I was planning on traveling to Pitt this weekend for their junior day, but because of the snow our basketball schedule got all messed up and I have to be here on Sunday now."

"I do talk to Coach (Brian) Angelichio and he seems like a good guy," Kuntz added. "I actually just called him today to let him know I wouldn't be able to make it and he just told me to get up there another time. He says they like me a lot at wide receiver and I like that a lot of local players go there. They've been building the program back up with some great recruiting classes lately."

"I also attended junior day at Connecticut and thought it was really nice there," Kuntz said. "The new facilities were absolutely awesome and since everything was brand new it made them that much more attractive. I got to meet all of the coaches who were great people and my teammate who was with me, Nick Kinder said that his brother told him that kind of hospitality isn't always normal in recruiting, so I thought that was a big plus. They were just all very personable and I really liked the campus too."

As a sophomore, Kuntz carried 79 times for 633 yards and 11 touchdowns. He caught 18 passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns. Kuntz also finished with 29 tackles and three interceptions, leading to second-team all-conference honors at running back and cornerback.
