    Kohl's Comments

    Russell recently competed in the 2020 June Showcase Series. He had a very impressive charting portion of camp on both field goals and kick offs. He made 11 points out of 15 and hit some big kick offs. He should be a highly recruited 2021 prospect. Russell also competed at the 2019 Kohl's Winter Showcase Camp in Dallas, TX. He had a great showing during the field goal charting phase of camp with 9 points made. He continues to show college level ability and we expect big things this upcoming year. Russell had a solid showing at the 2019 National Scholarship Camp. He was able to chart 20 made field goals at camp. He charted a big ball 66 yards with 3.66 seconds of hang time at the event as well. Russell attended the 2019 Spring Showcase Camp. He was very impressive throughout the camp and showed great command of his "A" ball. He made 10 out of 12 points on field goals and showed next level leg strength on kickoffs. Russell has the talent to have a bright future as a specialist.
