Focus '08: Mike Kuhn

After missing most of his junior year due to injury, Mike Kuhn has been hitting the combine trail in order to draw the attention of college coaches. So far the tactic appears to be successful. During the last Nike combine, Kuhn was timed at a 4.44 forty. The time help to immediately draw attention from a number of eastern schools including Pittsburgh, Connecticut, and Rutgers.

Mike Kuhn was a starting safety for Central Jersey powerhouse Immaculata before an injury robbed him of his junior year. As a sophomore, he accounted for 34 tackles, 2 interceptions with one for a touchdown, 1 sack, and 8 pass breakups on defense. On the other side of the ball, he gained 116 yards on 17 carries with 3 touchdowns.

Since Kuhn missed his junior year, he had no film to provide to college coaches. Therefore, he has relied on his impressive times to draw the attention of college coaches. Some of the schools who are now showing interest are Connecticut, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, Northwestern, North Carolina, Ohio State, and Illinois. All of these schools are recruiting Kuhn as a safety.

Although Kuhn has yet to obtain an offer, he stated that Pittsburgh and Connecticut appear to be the schools showing the most interest. Therefore, they would most likely be among the schools where he camps this summer. Some other possibilities are Vanderbuilt, Northwestern, Rutgers, and Ohio State.

Next on Kuhn's combine tour is the New Jersey combine.
