Johnstown (Pa.) Westmont Hilltop athlete Brad Kanuch finished up his season last week as the Hilltoppers lost 19-14 in the first round of the playoffs. How did the 6-foot-0, 178-pounder with 4.26-second speed finish the season? What's next for Kanuch in recruiting?
"I finished the season with close to 1,100 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns. I also added 15 catches for 200 yards and three touchdowns and 55 tackles on defense," he said. "I was pretty happy with how I performed. The thing that kind of hurt me was I had a young line, but they improved throughout the season and I can tell I improved too. I really am a lot better at my route running and hitting the hole a lot harder too."
With the season behind him, the three-star prospect can now completely focus on recruiting.
This week Kanuch plans to take his first official to Charlottesville.
"I'm really excited about the trip," he said. "I can't wait to meet the players, see how they prepare for the game and see how I get along with all of them. I also want to see how the coaching staff has changed since I've seen them last. One other thing I want to check is to see if they've addressed which position I'll play on the field because right now I'm up in the air between running back, wide receiver, cornerback and safety."
The No. 28 athlete in the country has his second official scheduled with Maryland on December 2nd. Has Kanuch considered the other three?
"I'm looking at scheduling one with Wake Forest soon and then it's probably between Connecticut, Akron and Toledo for the other two," he said. "I'm almost positive I'll be going somewhere on the weekend of December 10th, I just don't know where yet."
