Eagles targeting talented D-tackle

Defensive tackle is usually one of the most overlooked positions on a football team. That has changed recently because of guys like Nick Fairley, Ndamukong Suh, and even former Eagle star's B.J. Raji and Ron Brace. These players were able to change the face of their defense and make everyone around them better. Greg Kuhar, the standout lineman from Concord Township (Ohio) St. Edwards, has the potential to be the same type of player. As a junior Kuhar put up some unbelievable stats, he registered 98 tackles, 41 of them going for losses, and 11 for sacks. He also forced and recovered four fumbles.

Kuhar has yet to visit Boston College, but has been talking with Coach Sirmans about the program.

"Coach Sirmans has told me that BC is a great school, and has great academics," said Kuhar.

"He talked to me about how nice the kids are, and how a lot of the defensive linemen that come out of there are playing in the NFL."

The person that may be doing the most to recruit Kuhar to Boston College is his teammate and Boston College recruit Sam Grant.

"I know my tight end, Sam Grant, loves it there. He went on an overnight visit and said it was great. We like the same type of school so I definitely want to visit," said Kuhar.

Kuhar says he plans on making a trip out to the Heights this summer. The 6-foot-4, 270-pound lineman has 10 offers to this point, any favorites?

"Not really, I want to talk it over with my parents and I still have a long time," said Kuhar. "I think Northwestern and West Virginia are recruiting me really hard. My brother goes to West Virigina and wrestles, but I have to find the best fit for me."

Kuhar helped his team go 15-0 and win their first state championship last year, playing a few different positions on the defensive line. What has the Eagle coaching staff plan for him?

"I played both nose tackle and the three-technique, which lines up over the outside shoulder of the guard, for my team last year. I think BC is looking at me as more of a nose tackle."
