Pickerington North's Huhn verbals to Western Kentucky
The return of players like Jake Butt and Godwin Igwebuike should give the Pickerington North football team plenty of optimism entering the 2012 season.
Over the past few months, a more under-the-radar prospect for the Panthers -- senior offensive lineman Chris Huhn -- emerged on the recruiting front.
At 6-6 and about 290, Huhn verbally committed to Western Kentucky in mid-July.
"I love the coaches and the whole team atmosphere," Huhn said in a text. "Those were my two most important factors while making my decision."
According to Huhn's profile on Rivals.com, he is a three-star prospect who also had offers from Akron, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, Marshall, Miami, Ohio University and Toledo as well as a BCS offer from Louisville.
Last season, the Hilltoppers went 7-5 but won seven of their last eight games, with the only loss during that sequence coming to eventual national runner-up LSU (42-9).
Butt verbally committed in February to play for Michigan. Igwebuike is a three-star prospect according to Rivals who has 14 Division I scholarship offers. Nebraska and Wisconsin are among his most impressive offers.
