The Player
Blake Haubeil is a 6-foot-3 200-pound placekicker out of Buffalo, New York. He committed to Ohio State in July of 2015, prior to his junior season. He is rated the No. 1 kicker in the nation per the 247Sports Composite.

The Comparison
He's a kicker. He compares to other kickers.

The Fit
Haubeil has a huge leg, which is nice, but Urban Meyer also wants a precise leg for kickoffs. Meyer doesn't ever want to rely on kickers, but they're one of those things that you'd rather have and not need than need and not have.

The Depth Chart
Ohio State currently has scholarship kicker Sean Nuernberger, who has had an up-and-down career so far as a Buckeye. He did not kick last year, and this will be his fourth year in Columbus. Whether or not he will receive a fifth year could depend on how both he and Haubeil perform in 2017.

The Future
Other kickers have come in out of nowhere and taken the kicking job from Sean Nuernberger, so right now there's no reason to think that Blake Haubeil couldn't also do it. Granted, it's tougher for a freshman, but if he is the most reliable kicker, he'll be the one who plays. — Tony Gerdeman

Scout's Tate (via Kohl's Kicking Camp)
Haubeil is a very talented FG Kicker. The lift on his FG's is college ready right now. He has competed at multiple Kohl's events in 2016 and shown he is a trustworthy kicker. He has been ahead of his age ever since he came to his first Kohl's camp and won the Eastern Showcase as a sophomore. In May of 2016 he made 9 of 10 FG in the charting phase of camp and was dominant in the drill work and competition phase. His FG range was 5-10 yards longer than everyone else at that camp. Haubeil does need to continue to work on transferring his energy better on KO's but there is no reason to believe he can't go into Ohio State as a freshman and compete on FG.

Statistics
2016: 56-of-56 on PATs; 6-of-9 on FGs, Long of 47; 39.9 yards per punt
2015: 33-of-35 on PATs; 4-of-4 on FGs, Long of 61; 37.1 yards per punt
