Red Raiders close to offering kicker

North Crowley, Texas place kicker Adi Kunalic is working the kicking camp circuit to become more well-known by college coaches. He recently participated in kicking camps at Ohio State, LSU and Texas Tech. Scout.com caught up with Adi to see where he stands with his recruitment.

"I'm trying to get as many offers as I can," Adi Kunalic said.

Kunalic currently has offers from Connecticut and Washington State, and believes that Texas Tech will offer him in the fall.

"Texas Tech is pretty interested," he said. "They haven't made an offer yet. They are going to wait until fall because they signed a kicker last year -- but I think they are going to give me one. I would probably go there because it's close to home."

Kunalic said the only thing he's sure of is that he is not going to UConn.

"I don't know if they've signed a kicker or not," he said. "But I'm not really interested in them. I'd much rather play in the Pac-10 than the Big East."

Kunalic did express some interest in Pac-10 team Washington State. He said he plans to visit, but has not scheduled one yet.

"I've been talking to (Washington State's) recruiting coach (Greg Peterson) for a long time. He told me how it would be good if I came out and how I would be able to play in my first year. My offer came pretty fast there, too. They saw my tape and made the offer. They really think I could do well for them."

Coach Peterson also told Kunalic that he will likely get more offers if he excels in his senior season and becomes better known, which is exactly what the kicker is hoping for.

"I want to have as many choices as possible," Kunalic said. "That way I can see what kind of options I have and go from there."

Kunalic said because he is trying to use his senior season to gain more exposure, he will likely not commit until the season is over and he has all his offers in.

"All the coaches I've talked to so far have told me that I will get many more offers," he said. "I don't know what's going to happen, but right now, I'm just trying to get better and we will see what happens."
