Accomplishments...Collected 115 tackles, 65 solos, and 10 sacks as a senior. Named all-conference, and all-state.  Nominated for the Big 33 Classic.

NC State recruiter...Greg Williams...Academics...Fully qualifed

The recruiting scene...Kushner emerged on the recruiting season late after a strong senior year.  The Wolfpack pursued him heavily after finding Kushner while recruiting Kyle Newell.  In the end, the Wolfpack held off a late push from Boston College to secure Kushner's signature.

 Scouting Report...Kushner is a presence rushing off the edge and a high-motor prospect.  He doesn't take a play off and is very disruptive.  He has good athleticism and strength, and he also has the frame to add weight. Kushner could project at defensive tackle or offensive guard, depending on how much weight he adds while at NC State.
