… and here’s the kicker.
No joke, here’s the kicker that Ohio State has been seeking for the past year or so. Given that they just got their punter this past week, it seems that the special teams are well accounted for.
Like the incoming punting specialist, today’s verbal comes from a foreign national. Sean Nuernberger is a German national who currently plays at Oldham County Highschool in Kentucky. So, it seems like OSU can go into the bluegrass state for recruits the way Stoops has been looking north.
At 6’2″ and 22o pounds, Nuernberger earned his offer at the recent Ohio State kicking clinic. This past year, he made 29 of 32 extra points and was 7 of 12 field-goal tries with a long of 46 yards. He also managed to put 38 of 44 kickoffs in the end zone for touchbacks during his junior season.
Sean was just coming on the radar of major programs, and had expressed interest in Louisville, Notre Dame, Purdue, and the home state Wildcats. After the jump, more kicker video!
Welcome to the Buckeye Family, Mr. Nuerenberger!
