With the majority of specialists historically being recruited the latest, all the way through the summer following their senior year, a number of Kohl's Kicking, Punting, and Long Snapping athletes in the Class of 2023 have found early success with great performances at Kohl's events, during their seasons, and at college camps.
Wil Lutz was a standout kicker at the Kohl's College Elite Camp, and made himself known during the 2016 Kohl's Pro Combine.
A four-year starter at Georgia State, Will Lutz, a former walk-on, holds the school records for most field goals (31), extra points (120) and points (213). The Baltimore Ravens signed Will as an undrafted free agent after the 2016 Draft but waived him following the preseason. From Baltimore, Will was invited to tryout with the New Orleans Saints and earned the starting spot on September 5, 2016 with a raving endorsement to the media from Sean Peyton. He was named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team for the 2016 Season and was 28/34.
