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