'Cats After Another St. Edward Prospect

'Cats After Another St. Edward Prospect

Northwestern is after another prospect from Ohio state football champion St. Edward High School. 6'3, 260-lb DT Greg Kuhar is the latest St. Edward Eagle to gain interest from the Wildcats.

In 2011, the Wildcats welcomed in two St. Edward Eagles, offensive guard Geoff Mogus and defensive end Deonte Gibson. Now, the Wildcats are after Greg Kuhar, a defensive tackle from St. Edward's state champion team.

Thus far, Kuhar has received a lot of interest from the Wildcats, but has not yet been offered. But Kuhar says Northwestern is a school that he is very interested in.

"I've looked at Northwestern for a while," Kuhar said.

Kuhar has been offered by Michigan, Syracuse, West Virginia, and Toledo, but he is still highly interested in Northwestern. The defensive tackle is being recruited to Northwestern everyday at school, by his future Wildcat teammates, Geoff Mogus and Deonte Gibson.

"Mogus keeps telling me to come to Northwestern and how (he and Deonte Gibson) want me to come to college with them."

Mogus gave his verbal commitment in July of 2010, while Gibson made a late commitment just a week before National Signing Day. But the two are sold on Northwestern, and Kuhar said much like his teammates, he is also growing interested.

"They think it's a great school, and I think the same," Kuhar said.

But Kuhar's Northwestern connections don't stop there. His brother is Ben Kuhar, a heavyweight wrestler for the Wildcats wrestling team.

The younger Kuhar, Greg has done many visits to Northwestern to visit his older brother and see him wrestle, and during those trips, he has toured Northwestern's campus and Evanston. However, he has not visited the NU football facilities. But that will all change on April 9th, when Kuhar is set to make his first visit to see the Wildcat football program.

Kuhar is hoping to do the tour with fellow St. Edward teammate Tyler Orlosky, who is also being heavily recruited by Northwestern.

So far, Kuhar is very interested in Northwestern's football program, but that's not the most important thing for the 3.8 student.

"I like Northwestern because of the academics and my family is pretty big on academics," Kuhar said.

In the offseason, Kuhar wrestles for the St. Edward High School wrestling team. He dropped down to 265-lbs., but said he plans on bulking up during the offseason. Kuhar reports a 3.8 grade point average.
