Lucky number 13 is here!
Patrick Kugler made it official today on his Twitter account that he will join the University of Michigan in 2013. Kugler was offered by the likes of Boise State, MSU and Ohio. It appeared at one point that there was mutual interest between Kugler and the Spartans, but that was soon squashed after Kugler’s visit yesterday.
Kugler is rated a 4* OT and ranked number 54 in the country. He was being recruited as a center, which is a definite position of need with David Molk graduating and no clear cut starter has emerged yet.
According to Scout.com, they describe Kugler as the following:
“Kugler is a technician and he is nasty. He finishes his blocks and always plays to the whistle. He has great feet and gets to the second level as well as anyone. Very dominant at the point of attack. he is equally adept at run blocking and pass protection. He is very cerebral and is rarely in bad position. Very good knee bend and deceptively athletic. Needs to fill out his frame more, but that will come with age and experience. Bob Lichtenfels”
