Kuhar Talks About Michigan Offer

The Lakewood (OH) St. Edward prospect caught up with GoBlueWolverine to give the latest on his junior season, his offer from the Wolverines and his plans heading into the spring and summer.

Greg Kuhar, a 6'3" 260 pound giant, sits in the middle of a championship level defensive line for his Lakewood (OH) St. Edward Eagles. A self described fast player, Kuhar credits another sport for that speed.

"I think I'm pretty fast for my size," Kuhar told GoBlueWolverine. "I wrestle also, so I think that gives me great speed and moving around. It gives me a good advantage, too, with my hands because of all the hands you're using in wrestling."

As a junior, the defensive tackle helped lead his team to perfection in the state of Ohio and brought home some hardware.

"I don't think we could have done much better as a team. We went 15-0 and won a state championship. I just progressively got better over the year. Each game I made more plays and more tackles."

Schools are starting to take notice as well, as he holds two FBS verbal offers.

"I have Michigan and Toledo, but that's it so far."

The Wolverines offer came as part of a trio, as they also extended offers to two of Kuhar's Eagle's teammates.

"They offered me and my tight end and one of our guards too. It was at lunch time and we went down to the coaches office and the linebacker coach had come. We were told we'd get offered on signing day. It was pretty big for me because it was my first Big Ten offer and I've always wanted to play Big Ten football. "

Being from Ohio, Kuhar is already pretty familiar with the Wolverines and what type of program they have been.

"I know they're interested and they are a great program over the years. My dad likes Michigan a lot because it's a great academic school. He's always liked them, so that's another good thing."

With a father that follows the Wolverines and growing up in the Buckeye State, Kuhar follows his own path, and doesn't pledge allegiance to any particular school.

"I'm really just a college football fan in general. I always watched the Michigan and Ohio State games because they were always so fun. I just always wanted to go to a Big Ten school. I'm just a Big Ten fan."

While finishing up a busy schedule, Kuhar intends to visit Ann Arbor, though no date has been set.

"I'm definitely going to set up a visit, but right now I'm finishing up wrestling so I don't know if I'll make it up to any junior days or any of that."

As it's very early in the process, Kuhar does not hold any school in a top group.

"I don't really have a favorite. I've talked to a few other schools like Northwestern and Ohio State and I'm really just looking for a lot of Big Ten offers so I have more choices and sit down with my parents about what they like and what I like and we'll make a decision from there."

Until then, it will be just going forward with the process, as there is no rush to get a decision made.

"My dad said something about in the summer but we're probably going to wait after football, but I don't really know."
