Prospect Rankings

KCKicking’s evaluation of a prospect is reflected in two ways: rankings and ratings. Previously, the only way to improve your ranking and rating with KCKicking was to attend a College-Prep Showcase; however, due to increased demand, we now provide additional opportunities to increase individual standings. Rankings and ratings are both updated three times per year, after the College-Prep Showcase and Elite Performance Camps (January, June and August).

KCKicking uses this star rating scale to assess a prospect's current level of play.

 Oscar Castruita
N/A
N/A
Oscar demonstrated a strong leg at our 2017 CPS. He had the best kickoff chart in his class. His best ball was a 3.79 hang, 63 yd ball. He hits his field goals from the ground and shows excellent ball striking ability. He needs to reduce his steps to a consistent 3-step approach to bring his get off times into a respectable range. Oscar is still developing his punting skills. He can hit some long punts, but his hang-times are not high enough to cover the punt properly. If he changes his steps to go more directly down field, this should help him get better hang-time punts. With a couple years of development, Oscar could be a great College prospect.

 Dietrick Stolz
N/A
N/A
Dietrick had a very impressive showing at the 2017 CPS. He charted the best in his class during the field goal event. He made the FG finals and went a combined 14 out of 16 kicks, only missing kicks from 45 yards and beyond. As of the Showcase, he is our most talented field goal kicker in his class. Once he adds some distance and hang to his kickoffs, he will be competing for top honors in his class. Dietrick showed he can be an explosive punter. Shortening his steps will help him harness his energy and become more consistent. Keep an eye on Dietrick as he continues to develop his skills!

 Jake Baumgarte
5'11"
165
Jake competed at our 2017 CPS. He showed he had some of the best range in his class. He can hit a solid field goal at times. If he increases his lean-off at ball-striking position, this could help him hit his target line more consistently. He has a tendency to be too vertical at impact. He had the second biggest kickoff leg in his class at the Showcase with an average of 60 yards and 3.45s hang. We expect big things from Jake over the next two years!

 Andrew Anello
N/A
N/A
Andrew has good fundamentals and is able to generate a lot of power even though he has a small frame. He is one of the best ball strikers in his class. At the 2017 CPS, he made the finals (best 10 kickers at the event). He was 1 of 2 class of 2020 kickers who hit the 50 yard field goal. He produces good distance on his kickoffs, but over the next few years Andrew needs to improve his hang-time. Andrew is serviceable as a punter but his skills are most suited as kicker.

 Noah Litzelswope
N/A
N/A
Noah attended the 2017 CPS and showed his skills. We are very impressed he is already hitting his field goals directly from the ground. This will help him drastically as he continues to develop his kicking skills. At times he hits the ball really well. To improve his consistency on field goals and kickoffs, he needs to develop his swing pattern to carry his body more directly down field instead of falling off the ball. By doing this, his ball should fly on a straighter line. Noah has time to develop, but he has good framework and we are excited to see his progression!

 Spencer Rivera
5'9"
170
Spencer demonstrates solid fundamentals and consistency in his mechanics. He has a fluid leg swing on field goals. If Spencer keeps his hips turned in towards the ball on his field goals longer, he will find more power and hit his line more consistently. He has a good base for his kickoffs. More reps and building explosive strength will further improve his hang and distance. Spencer is an effective punter. His steps look good and he shows good extension in his swing. Just as with kickoffs, reps and being more explosive will help him realize gains in this area. Spencer is a talented kicker which can be serviceable in a punting role if needed.

 Huxley Richardson
5'11"
160
Huxley competed at our 2017 CPS in field goals, kickoffs and punts. On field goals, he demonstrated the ability to hit a 50 yard field goal. His ball striking is inconsistent at times, but is also capable of hitting a clean ball. He currently hits from a 1 inch block but should be able to transition to the ground well. He sits, or crunches, a bit at ball strike. He can improve his swing by standing taller through his spine at ball strike. On punts, Huxley needs to work on a swing that is more vertical and doesn't cross his chest. His swing gets jammed in this crossing action. With improvement on his punt mechanics, he has the leg to hit some big balls. Watch for Huxley to improve his craft and climb the rankings!

 Jesus Zaragoza
N/A
N/A
Jesus has a strong build and demonstrated a strong leg at the 2017 CPS. He currently hits from a two inch block. To make the transition to a one inch or to the ground, he will need to increase his lean off at ball strike and open up his foot into more of a club position. To help achieve this, he can start by increasing the width in his approach to the ball. On his kickoffs, his approach is too narrow and his mechanics make it difficult for him to achieve good hang-times. Again, widening his approach as well as increasing his lean-off will help him open his foot to strike the ball in a manner that will get the ball in the air better.

 Bryant Golden
N/A
N/A
Bryant is a young kicker and is finding his rhythm and technique. He will need to switch his stagger stance at the start of his field goals so his left foot is in front. This will help him achieve the necessary get off times to avoid getting kicks blocked. To improve his power, he will need to attack the ball with more speed. He shows repeatability and fluidity with his kickoffs. Increased gains in the weight room will help him drive the ball higher and further. We want to see his leg swing drive higher in his follow thru on kickoffs.

 Jacob Adams
N/A
N/A
Jacob competed at our 2017 CPS. He gets the ball in the air well. He uses a 1 inch block on his field goals. He needs to develop the steps in his approach so they position him more consistently with his plant foot. His plant foot tends to be too far down field. With training and more repetitions, Jacob will become a better ball striker and start hitting his target with more consistency. Gains in the weight room will also help him get further distance and hang on his kickoffs. Jacob is a young kicker with room to grow. Look for Jacob to climb the rankings in the next few years!

 Jacob Kriete
N/A
N/A
Jacob hit field goals and kickoffs at our 2017 CPS. He shows he is a good ball striker and has repeatable mechanics. Improved flexibility will help him drive the ball higher by increasing the range of his leg swing follow thru. This increased range is needed on both field goals and kickoffs. On field goals, he will need to increase his approach speed, specifically between his first and second step. This will also improve his power.

 Seth Gregg
6'2"
165
Seth competed at our 2017 CPS and participated in the field goal, kickoff and punt charting events. On the field goal charting, he had good strikes with his misses being very close. He has a good frame for kicking and punting. For field goals and kickoffs, it will help him to turn his kicking foot over slightly so he can drive the ball more with his quad muscles instead of his groin. This will improve his range on field goals and improve his production on distance and hang for kickoffs. To improve on punting, he needs to shorten his steps and speed up his approach. Ultimately, the force he creates with his swing should pull him off the ground. Seth has some time to develop and we are excited to monitor his progression along the way!

 Jacob Caron
N/A
N/A
Jacob is a new to kicking and is eager to learn. Improving his ball striking skills will help him the most in all three phases of the kicking game. The more he can practice and get his foot on the ball, the better. He will need to work on his quad, hip and hamstring flexibility as his swinging motions look to be tight. Look for Jacob to hone in on his fundamentals and become a polished specialist.

 Connor Sheehan
5'0"
N/A
Connor is very coach-able and has an excellent attitude towards kicking. His technique and mechanics need a little work as he is still new to kicking. A more fluid "up and thru" swing will make his field goals more consistent. Connor will benefit from overall athletic development. Excited to see how Connor develops for many years to come!
