Reviewing our list of prospects for 2012, I became curious about Greg Kuhar. He is really the only prospect among the 100+ without any other top offers. He has an offer from Toledo and an offer from us.
That says to me that he is a player that Michigan sees something special in. So I decided to review and here's what I found:
When Kuhar was offered TomVH posted that he was a wrestler. Not only is he a wrestler, but he is ranked number 1 in Ohio for the heavy weight division and number 7 nationally (BTW - 4 of the 6 players ahead of him are seniors). He was second at the 2009 Cadet Nationals in freestyle, fourth in the state tournament at 285 pounds as a sophomore with a 35-9 record, and he is the 2010 Junior Nationals Freestyle National Champion for the 285lb weight class. He is wrestling this weekend in the state championship and he and his team are favored.
In football, he's a two-way player on both oline and dline. His team improved from 4-6 in 09-10 to go 15-0 in 10-11 and finish ranked 1st in the state and 2nd in the country. He is really good friends with Kyle Kalis, an Ohio State commit and Michigan offeree, and they have talked about playing together.
According to TomVH, Greg is a slight OSU fan while his Dad is a big Michigan fan. When I think of a wrestler at DT, I can't help but think of MIke Martin. I'm intrigued by his potential. Assuming he pursues football instead of college wrestling I think we have a good chance that he will wear the maize and blue.
