    Kohler to play Baseball?

    Curious if anyone has heard this? I had a friend report this to me yesterday. Iowa only had a 1% chance with the kid anyway (maybe less), but I thought he had a GREAT frame for a big OL....anyone else hear he is pursuing academics and baseball in college?

    You cant access his rivals page any more for football, maybe this is the reason.

    I heard Grinnell for baseball. No joke.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Kohler to play Baseball?

    I understand if your heart is with baseball, that maybe you should do it. But wouldn't you rather have a free education, than pay $200,000 to go to Grinnell? I understand he is a very smart kid though, maybe he has an academic scholarship?

    Not very impressive baseball stats more along the lines of average.

    Re: Kohler to play Baseball?

    Obviously the education is the #1 priority for this kid....I imagine he can go to Grinnell for nothing if his ACT scores are as high as were earlier reported. Good luck to him, I think he would have been a great football player though.

    That's convenient, seeing as how Iowa stopped recruiting him several months ago.

    They stopped recruiting him because he told them, "I would rather play intramural baseball at Iowa State, then play football for the University of Iowa".

    Re: Kohler to play Baseball?

    I believe it is down to three - Grinnell, Minnesota, and Creighton.
