Kohl's Comments

Van Zelst had strong showings at multiple June 2020 Showcase Camps. He is one of the best field goal kickers in his class and he displayed excellent command of his body and control on his field goal reps. He charted well and competed well in the field goal portion of camp. His KO charts from his second Showcase show what he's capable of. Van Zelst's field goals are some of the cleanest in the 2021 class. He has grown into one of the top kicking prospects in his class and we expect big things from him over the next couple off years.
