Texas kicker has two on top
"I first heard from Nebraska about a (week and a half ago)," said Kunalic. "They need a guy for next year."
Kunalic said he has two leaders and in looking ahead, mentioned distance may play a factor in his decision.
"Definitely Nebraska, but I really want to see what it will be like out there. And my parents, they really don't want to me to go out that far (from home) and if I go to this college, I'd be in the Big 12. Around here, they play UT, A&M, Tech, all those schools, so it's all around here. So they would like it more so...
"Washington State is there, too, since I haven't been out to Nebraska yet. And I loved my visit to Washington State, I mean Washington State is great. I had fun out there and I liked it."
WSU, Nebraska, Utah and Connecticut have all offered. Missouri and Kansas also remain in the mix.
Miami was showing interest earlier but they now appear set with their present kicking situation, said Kunalic.
"I've been talking to Washington State a lot," said Kunalic. "But I want to go out to (Nebraska) and see what it's like out there before I make any choices."
KUNALIC WENT THROUGH six different holders this season, but more than that, he said he just didn't have as many opportunities with the team 2-7 headed into the regular season finale. North Crowley was playing catch up more often than not, and the year began with the team trying to look at some potential replacements for Kunalic in the non-conference slate.
But he still got some opportunities to get his kicks in, in a manner of speaking.
"I've been punting really good lately, though," said Kunalic. "I know I averaged 48, 49 a game for two of the games, but I don't know what I've averaged for the season."
Kunalic also said he booted a number of kickoffs for touchbacks, although he didn't get as many of those this season either.
As a junior, Kunalic blasted a season high 57-yarder to set the school record at North Crawley and rendered appx. 55 of 65 kickoffs for touchbacks.
On nine FG attempts in 2005, three of his seven makes were from 50-plus -- splitting the uprights from 51, 53 and 57 yards.
