Kohl's Comments

Bales had another strong showing at the 2018 December Showcase Camp. He has explosive hips and the ball jumps off his foot. In July he scored 27 points on field goals and was able to hit some impressive kickoffs at camp. His best ball being a 73 yard 3.47 second blast. His punting was solid and he was able to hit a 60 yard 4.61 punt. He scored points in the roll-out portion of camp as well and his coordination stood out against his peers. Continuing to improve his technique is a focus for him in the coming years. Bales has the leg speed to compete at the highest level of football.

    Recruiting Blog: Setting Goals-- Athletic, Academic & Recruiting

    Being a Kohl’s Coach for over ten years, the one thing I hear the most from athletes is talk of their star rating & ranking and what they want to achieve, especially during the Showcase season.
