Flashes after in-state DT

In every recruiting class it is important to address the defensive line and Kent State has handed out several offers along the defensive line already in this cycle. One of the more recent offers to go out was to Cleveland (Ohio) St. Ignatius defensive tackle David Katusha. The 6-foot-3, 270-pound prospect is currently sitting on a pair of offers from Mid-American Conference programs.

"I have offers from Toledo and Kent State," said Katusha. "I'm hearing from Ball State a little bit too but that's about it for now."

Toledo was the first program to offer Katusha who sees himself as a pure nose guard at the next level.

"(The Toledo offer) was great because I really had no idea it was coming," he said. "I went up to one of their junior days and they told me (about the offer) there."

The Flashes quickly followed suit and Katusha says he was excited to get the news.

"I was also pretty excited about that one too," he said. "Every offer you get is just great. They told my coach (Chuck Kyle) that they were offering. I haven't talked to any of their coaches yet but I hope to get down there (on an unofficial visit)."

Katusha's junior year was highly successful, as the Wildcats fought and clawed their way to another state championship. Katusha said that seeing the team develop throughout the year was a satisfying experience.

"Our team got better and better every week," he said. "It was really exciting and I'm really proud that the season worked out that way."

Going into his senior season, Katusha knows that more will be expected of him and he's working hard on multiple areas of his game.

"I'm working on my strength, quickness, and foot work," he said.
