After tearing his ACL last season and missing what would have been his entire junior season, Jake Kuhn decided to make the transfer to St Maria Goretti, where he has reclassified, and will spend his final two high school seasons.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard had been at Walt Whitman, and says the move to St Maria Goretti will give him a better opportunity to compete at a high level.
“I am extremely excited for this year. Having transferred to St. Maria Goretti for high school gives me an opportunity to compete with the best and develop as a player,” said Kuhn. “Personally, I would like to keep my turnovers low, and make sure that my rebounding totals are top three on the team.”
Already with three Division I offers in tow, Kuhn has exponentially risen to one of the most sought-after guards in the state. And he’s seeing interest from a handful of additional Division I programs.
“I have three offers right now; Mount Saint Mary's, Air Force, and St Francis (PA). These schools as well as New Hampshire, VMI, Holy Cross and a couple others are recruiting me fairly heavily.”
His recruitment picked up plenty of steam after spending his spring and summer playing with District Basketball Club.
“I shot the ball pretty well and defended and rebounded out of position very well. I saw the most improvement in just learning how to play at that level and competing against the best of the best,” said Kuhn, who characterized his style of play to PHM.
“I shoot the ball very well from 3 and can rebound and dribble well for my size. When I am on the court I like to be smart while picking and choosing when I want to attack.”
“I do still need to get bigger in the weight room and continue to become a knockdown shooter, with those things comes a lot of time and effort but I'm really working on it.”
