Jonathan Ginsburgh, the No. 7 punter in the nation, has named a favorite: the Tulane Green Wave. The senior from Holy Savior Menard High School in Alexandria, Louisiana, averaged a whopping 43.1 yards per punt last season.
But that's not all.
Ginsburgh is also a powerful weapon as a kicker. He nailed 18 field goals -- more than any other kicker in the nation -- including a game-winning 43-yarder in the final seconds vs. Homer. In addition, Ginsburgh put 48-of-65 kickoffs in the end zone for touchbacks.
"As a defensive coordinator, that's just a wonderful thing," said Menard defensive coordinator Scott Green.
"When Jonathan was a junior, we thought his future was at punter," Green said, "but he has become a big-time kicker as well."
Ginsburgh currently holds offers from Tulane and Lamar. ULM, which had originally offered, may re-offer now that the Warhawks' new coaching staff has taken a look at the senior. Ginsburgh has also received interest from Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Louisiana Tech, and Northwestern (Illinois).
"Tulane is coming to the school to talk to Jonathan this week," Green said. "I would say he's a Tulane lean, but that's he also still very interested in ULM, Louisiana Tech, and Arkansas."
