BROCK TRAVELSTEAD - KICKER
247 Composite: 3*/.8201
Other Offers: UMass, Miami of Ohio, Wyoming
Louisville is getting a kicker with a big leg and a strong career from an accuracy standpoint. Travelstead hit 23-25 field goals in his first two years as the kicker for his high school. For whatever reason, that number dipped to 3-8 this year. He consistently puts his kickoffs into the end zone and the added distance in college shouldn’t be a problem as he has hit the uprights or put the ball through the uprights multiple times.
When Brock initially committed to Louisville he was ranked as the best kicker in the country. Rankings change as the year goes on but it’s good that UofL got a guy who performed well at kicking camps and was first team all-state as a junior. He also has experience as a punter which UofL needs also.
