Rutgers punter Adam Korsak has been invited to participate at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis on March 3.

The combine is one of the major steps college players take in preparation for NFL Draft.

Korsak is looking to become the first Rutgers punter selected in the draft. Last year wide receiver Bo Melton and running backĀ  Isiah Pacheco were both drafted after attending the combine. Pacheco has become a key cog in the Kansas City Chiefs offense, and has a chance to represent Rutgers in the Super Bowl should K.C. defeat Cincinnati on Sunday in the AFC Championship game.

The recipient of the 2022 Ray Guy Award, as the country’s best punter, Korsak built a tremendous resume at Rutgers on and off the field.

According to Rutgers Athletics.

Korsak “led the country with 32 punts downed inside the 20 and -11 return yards against, ranking third in net punt average (43.57). Korsak was also selected First Team All-America by The Sporting News for the performance.

“For his career, the Aussie downed 41.5 percent of his punts inside the 20 with only seven touchbacks (2.0 percent). In a 27-game span between 2019 and 2022, Korsak had a streak of 150 consecutive attempts without a touchback. He never had a punt blocked or returned for a touchdown, with 63 attempts of at least 50 yards. That included a school-record 79-yard boot in 2018. He is the NCAA all-time leader in punting attempts (349) and yardage (15,318), a three-time captain for the Scarlet Knights and tied for the program record with 58 games played.

“The four-time Academic All-Big Ten selection previously earned a spot as a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy, which recognizes an individual as the absolute best football scholar-athlete in the nation for combined academic success, football performance and exemplary leadership. He is also a member of the College Sports Communicators Academic All-District TeamĀ® for holding a GPA of at least 3.5 and is working on a second master’s degree.”
