Kuhbander held offers from Iowa State and Army. He was ranked the fourth-best Class of 2017 kicker by Kohl's Kicking, which is the nation's leader in developing kickers and punters.
Here's what Kohl's has to say about the rising senior:
"Kuhbander has attended multiple Kohl's events in the winter of 2015. He shows elite level leg strength and explosiveness. His FG repeatability off the ground has improved and he is in line to be one of the top players in the 2017 class. Kuhbander has special talent and seems to be a natural kicker."
He is the first and only kicker in the class of 2017.
