Bio

Position: Punter

Previous College: None

Projection: Redshirt

Status: On Scholarship

Mitchell Link Lochbihler (b. Jan. 6, 1995) is a seriously late addition to the 2013 class. I don't think he showed up on our radar until midway through the summer, but sure enough, there was a scholarship magically awaiting him.

Lochbihler punted and handled placekicking duties at Charlotte Catholic High School under head coach Jim Oddo.

He helped the team to earn a 13-1 record as a senior, earning all-conference and all-county honors; averaged 43.8 yards on 26 punt attempts during his career; and booted kickoffs for a 68.3-yard average and 150 touchbacks.

I figure Lochbihler either will start from Day 1 or redshirt this season. He's stepping into big shoes, but by taking Ryan Doerr's No. 9, it seems this young punter doesn't shy away from the challenge.
