Louisville's Drew Kuhn might be the most versatile football player in Ohio. Kuhn, ranked as the 53rd best player in the state by Ohio High magazine, has done it all for the Leopards in his career. Last season, Kuhn threw for a touchdown, caught a touchdown pass, ran a punt back for a touchdown, intercepted a pass, and gained yardage as a running back...... in the same game.
Kuhn, 6-0, 180 pounds, has had a great off season and has drawn the eyes of college recruiters.
"I went to one-day camps at West Virginia, Ohio State and Kent State," said Kuhn. "I probably liked West Virginia the best. They have shown the most interest so far along with Bowling Green.
"I felt I did real well at Ohio State. I ran a 4.49 forty and had a 4.17 shuttle time. I've run 4.5 or better at every camp."
Kuhn is having a tough time deciding which schools are his favorite. He enjoyed his camping experience at each school and is interested in many different schools.
"It's hard to list them because I like a lot of schools, but I'd say West Virginia, Louisville, Michigan State, Minnesota and Kent State would be my top choices," said Kuhn. "I'm hoping to visit West Virginia for their opener."
Louisville coach Paul Farrah couldn't be higher on his star player. Farrah, one of the top coaches in the state, should have his team back in the playoffs again in 2005 and will count heavily on Kuhn to lead the way.
"Drew has had a great off-season," said Farrah. "He's great in the weight room. His vertical jump is up three inches over last year. He always runs a sub-4.5 forty. Drew's work ethic is second to none.
"The best part about him is that he knows the game so well. He's constantly watching film trying to make himself better."
Although Drew has no offers at this time, many college recruiters are waiting to see senior tape before making their decision. Coach Farrah has had many inquiries about Kuhn, both in person and by phone.
Kuhn, a 3.0 student who scored a 20 on the ACT, is a player we will follow closely this season at Ohio High magazine. If he has the type of season many expect, his could stock rise dramatically in 2005.
Evaluation: I first saw Drew last fall in a 7-on-7 against GlenOak. I
went to see Brian Hartline, who was superb as always, but came away impressed
with Kuhn also. He will probably be a wide receiver at the next level, but I
wouldn't rule out being a cornerback either. He's a great kick returner as well.
