Kwapis Talks Recruiting

At 6'10" and 310 pounds, Iowa Western OT Kevin Kwapis is quite literally one of the biggest JUCO prospects still left on the board...

"I already had an offer from Stephen F. Austin and Fresno State just offered me (last week)," Kwapis told "I've talked to a handful of of other schools, but the ones that seem like they could be the closest are San Diego State and Oregon State and I am taking a visit to see Florida Atlantic on the 27th (of January) and I am working on setting up the visit with FSU here in the next couple of days."

As a redshirt freshman this past season, Kwapis started every game at right tackle for the Reivers.

"I feel like my pass-blocking is what I do best," Kwapis noted. "I have long arms and I am light on my feet and that helps me with keeping guys off my quarterback."

Wherever he winds up, Kwapis said he knows what he needs to work on to help himself improve.

"I definitely want to work on my strength, that's a big thing for me," Kwapis said. "I also need to work on my steps and my reach-blocking."

As a prep at Walled Lake Central in Commerce, Michigan, Kwapis was unable to get qualified for a scholarship, so he decided to take the JUCO route in order to garner more attention and get his academics in order.

"It's a great program here and they do a great job of getting guys moved on to the next level," Kwapis said.

The talented line prospect redshirted in 2015, so once he finishes his two-year degree in May he will have three years to play three starting in the fall.
