Kohl's Comments

Bellenfant has been to multiple Kohl's events. The last event was Kohl's 2021 National Scholarship Camp in July. His superior leg strength makes him a top prospect. He showed it during the field goals and kickoff charting portions of camp. Bellenfant shows glimpses of great potential as a punter as well. Bellenfant is an athletic combo that has the right tools to compete with the top players in his class. He won the field goal contest at the end of the Kohl's National Scholarship Camp against the other top 2022 players in the country in July of 2020. Bellenfant has huge upside and still developing!
