Banta has worked very hard to be one of the best FG kickers in the country. He made 29 points at the National Scholarship Camp and has shown well at multiple Kohl's events over the years. His KO's are solid but he has shown flashes of special KO's in certain settings. Banta had 1st team All-State season going 11/12 on FG with five between 45-54 yards away, he also has a great upside as a punter
