Bobcat FB recruit: William Russ

Rivals.com is reporting that the Bobcat football staff is recruiting William Russ from Evangel Christian high school in Shreveport, Louisiana. Russ is a kicker / punter who is getting a lot of attention from a wide variety D-1 schools across the country.

Russ has been considered one of the top “combo” kickers in the nation and one of its top overall punters. The 2009 Preseason All-American averaged over 42 yards a punt as a junior for the Eagles, with a long of 68 yards. The 6-foot-4 prospect also scored 99 points on offense, connecting on 7-of-11 field goal attempts off the ground with a long of 50 yards. He also had 60 kickoffs for touchbacks.

Russ also carries a 3.0 GPA in the classroom and has already scored a 23 on his ACT. He earned All-State honors in 2008 and honorable mention honors in 2007. He has also garnered all-district and all-city in each of the past two seasons.

He is also a top baseball prospect and wants to play both spots in college, so I do not know if Montana State actually has much of a chance with him, but he did specifically mention MSU as a school he is interested in. He currently holds offered from Montana State, Tulane, Vanderbilt, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Monroe, and Miami (FL) while Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi State, Texas, and Georgia Tech are also showing interest.
