In my opinion, I think two of the most important positions to recruit are punters and kickers. Time and time again we have seen the game come down to a last second field goal or a punt that is needed to pin the other team. Although there aren’t many players at these positions in the 2021 class, I believe there is still a ton of talent in North Carolina. Here are the top punters and kickers from the upcoming recruiting class:

Matthew DennisMatthewDennis5'10" | KMyers Park | 2021StateNC, K, 5’11 and 163 lbs, Myers Park HS

Dennis is a fundamentally sound kicker that displays perfect technique and an ideal follow through. He is never in danger of getting his kicks blocked because of the height he puts on the ball at impact and his timing of the snap. Matthew is a very accurate short range kicker that consistently puts the field goal through the middle of the uprights. He has a huge leg that he uses to boot the ball out of the endzone on kickoffs. Currently committed to Wake Forest.

Czaplicki is a prototypical punter that gets excellent hang time on
