Information: 2013 Punter Recruit Rankings and Status

Submitted by team126 on December 16th, 2012 at 12:08 PM

It is a slow Sunday so I looked up at Scout on their 2013 punter rankings. A few of them are still available if we do go to 28 total. I am in particular interested in knowing if we can get that Rutgers commit if we do offer one punter.

Hagerup was suspended, not kicked off the team. He'll be back next year. We also have a walk-on freshman redshirting this year (Kenny Allen) who had several BCS offers.

he was suspended once under RR, and twice under hoke..  Hoke seems to be 3 strikes and out guy... so who knows


im sure he is only considering the times he has been in trouble under his watch

Wile can punt and Kenny Allen? Walked on last year. He had a 3 star rating and an offer from Oregon state. I think we're fine. I'd give him an offer before another punter.

Has any player on the team commented on Allen's punting?

If he were booming the ball, then I would expect a quote from somebody during the pre-season.

Wile can punt but nice to know if Allen is a worthy specialist.

#1 - Hagerup hasn't been kicked off the team (even though I'm not sure if he'll return - I wouldn't be shocked if he didn't)

#2 - We have Matt Wile who's a junior next we have a D1 punter

#3 - We have Kenny Allen who was a preferred walk-on

JT Floyd is the biggest loss, but it's one game...we can prepare another player to step in for one game. We've got plenty of time to do so. May help that player in the long run.

For 5 stars he might have to be able to kick from his own endzone and have it downed inside the opposite 5 yard line on 9 out of 10 attempts....which would probably require a hang time of 12 seconds.  Even then I'm guessing only 2 of the 4 services give him 5 stars.  He would probably have to be able to force a fumble from the returner on the 1 out of 10 times the punt is returned, recover the fumble himself, and break 5 tackles en route to the endzone.

Basically he would have to dominate the game from the punter position, to the point where opposing teams would rather give up a 1st down then have him punt!
