Kickoffs are close to 70 yards prior to starting junior year in high school. Punting mechanics are excellent with great power. Declan is 6’2″ 220+ pounds and powerful.

Tarik Ahmetbasic – 5★ Kicker/Punter, Michigan (Evaluated in January 2021)
Impressive power on this tall and athletic-built kicker. Sky is the ceiling.

Tarik is fresh off the soccer field, where he is an accomplished athlete, and his swing is “soccerrish” at the moment. He will excel at whatever sport he chooses.

Clune impressed with his power at the Michigan Winter Kicking Camp, winning the field goal competition with a 57 yard field goal off the ground with tons of height, after making 55 and 53 yard field goals with lots of distance to spare.
