Twinsburg, Ohio's Zoltan Mesko is a solid punter but is he the best kicker in Ohio? Joe Kleinsmith from Lakewood (St. Ed's) might have something to say about that.

Zoltan Mesko, a 6-foot-4, 240-pound punter from Twinsburg, Ohio has given Michigan his verbal commitment.

Mesko and fellow Ohio kicker Joe Kleinsmith both bring something different to the table.

Who's the better kicker? Kleinsmith. Who's the better punter? Mesko.

Mesko claims to be hitting 65-yarders in practice this summer but his leg didn't look near as strong as advertised on kick-off's and field goals.

The ball flew off Kleinsmith's foot with ease, power and accuracy. Most of his kick-off's were touchbacks and through the endzone. Mesko's were usually between the 5-yard line and goal line.

Kleinsmith doesn't punt the ball like Mesko. Zoltan booms a beautiful spiral on every punt and his hang time is impressive.

Bottom line, Indiana and Michigan are getting very good special team weapons. Both Mesko and Kleinsmith are versatile enough to handle all the kicking and punting duties for the Hoosiers and Wolverines if needed.
