Oklahoma State Lands Australian Punter Hudson Kaak

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State has just added another Australian kicker to the ranks. Hudson Kaak, a 21-year-old punter out of Seymour, Victoria, Australia, took to Instagram on Sunday to announce his commitment to the Cowboys.

Kaak has been working out with Prokick Australia, the same training center current Cowboy punter Tom Hutton trained with.

Prokick Australia has trained and sent some of the best punters in college football to America since 2007. In fact, they’re closing in on 190 full-ride scholarship punters, they’ve trained six punters who have won the Ray Guy Award and have sent at least 15 punters to the NFL and CFL.

Kaak played Aussie rules football and handball all through his childhood and developed into a really solid kicker as he ended up playing for the Murray Bushrangers, an under-18s Australian rules football team, in 2018 and 2019.

He’s yet to make a trip to Oklahoma State but has been in contact with the Oklahoma State recruiting staff for quite some time and Todd Bradford and his staff were just waiting for the announcement to be made.

Prokick coaches have great relationships with American college coaches and it’s one of the first places college coaches look for new punters.

The Cowboys currently have two kickers on the roster from Australia, Alex Hale from Point Frederick, NSW, Australia, and Tom Hutton from Newborough, VI, Australia.

Pokes Report has had a recent conversation with Hutton, who just turned 32-years-old and does have an extra year of eligibility because of COVID but has speculated he is probably done after this season. So, it makes sense the Cowboys are looking to add a punter.  

Kaak is the 11th commitment in the 2023 recruiting class.

this sounds like really good news, we had a lot of success with Hutton, so I'm expecting at least more of the same...at a minimum.
