Adi Kunalic

Kicker, 6-0, 175, Fort Worth, Texas (North Crowley HS)

 

Place-kicker Adi Kunalic is part of an impressive class of seven Husker recruits from the state of Texas, the Huskers' largest haul from the Lone Star State since 1989. Kunalic is the only kicker in Nebraska's class and comes to the Huskers after an impressive prep career for Coach Mike Papas at North Crowley High School in Fort Worth. Kunalic attempted just six field goals as a senior for a 3-7 North Crowley team, and connected on four of those attempts. He also nailed 29-of-31 extra-point attempts. Kunalic owns a powerful leg, which allowed him to boot 22 kickoffs for touchbacks during his senior season. Kunalic also served as the team's punter and averaged nearly 40 yards on 46 punts, with a season long punt of 72 yards. As a junior, Kunalic had more place-kicking opportunities for a 9-2 North Crowley squad. He connected on 7-of-9 field goal attempts, including a pair of field goals from better than 50 yards. Kunalic is ranked among the top 20 kickers in the country according to Rivals.com and is listed as a two-star prospect by both Rivals and Scout.com. Kunalic chose Nebraska after also taking a visit to Washington State. He also received offers from Miami, Kansas and Utah among others. He was born on June 1, 1989, and is the son of Meho and Ivana Kunalic.
