THE SCOOP

Has blossomed the past two years into a standout on both the offensive and defensive lines. His future might be on offense, but he was a first-team all-conference defensive tackle last season. And get this, he's also Butler's punter. Kradel also is an avid hunter who likes to ride ATVs and jet skis.

COLLEGE TALK

One of few Division I players to come out of Butler in past two decades. Kradel already has made a verbal commitment to Pitt, where he is projected to play offensive line. He only had a few scholarship offers by February, but then the avalanche of offers came. His other finalists were Ohio State, West Virginia, Maryland, Rutgers, Virginia Tech and UCLA."
