Kohl's Comments

Schmidt competed at Kohl's Midwest Showcase and hit a kickoff that went 91 yards and had 4.34 seconds of hang-time! He is a D1 punter and has the ability to kick field goals, punt, and kickoff at the Power Five level. Schmidt is a special talent and has a bright future in college. At a December 2023 Showcase Camp, he scored 116.78 points in punting. He had many punts travel over 50 yards in the air during the charting session. He earned an invite to the Underclassman Challenge in January with his strong performance at camp. Schmidt also recently competed at the National Scholarship Camp in July of 2023. He led the camp with a final punt score of 112.6 points. He was also dominant on kick-offs scoring 116.37 points. His field goals were solid as he scored 27 points. He is clearly a D1 talent. At the Underclassman Challenge in January of 2023, he competed very well in the competitions vs the top 2024 players in the country. Schmidt scored 14 points on field goals, 106.53 points on kick-offs, and 104.3 points on his punts. In December of 2022 and showed again he is ahead of his age on FG's, Kick-offs, and Punts. In July of 2022, he made 26/36 points on field goals and hit a 69-yard 3.9 second hang-time kickoff. Schmidt has consistently been in our top 10 as both a kicker and punter. Schmidt has rare power and consistency for someone his age, a talent that should take him very far as he continues to train and develop over the coming years!
