Kuhlman Headed To Davidson

Bob McKillop and the Davidson Wildcats scored a significant commitment on Thursday. J.P. Kuhlman of the Jacksonville Lee Bulls made the call this week.

One of these days the Davidson Wildcats will have to replace Stephen Curry. Now, that's pretty much the most difficult player to replace in college basketball so the Wildcats are intent on adding pieces to ease the transition.

On Thursday, Bob McKillop's program added one of the better mid-major guards the summer circuit yielded. J.P. Kuhlman, a 6-foot-3 combo guard out of Jacksonville (Fla.) Wolfson, picked the Wildcats over William & Mary, Belmont and Jacksonville.

"I visited up there on Monday and I knew after meeting with the coaches I knew that was where I wanted to go," Kuhlman said. "I knew I wanted to go away for college and after praying about it I felt like the atmosphere and the program they had."

As a junior, Kuhlman pumped in 17 points a game. Confident and accurate behind the line, he's also stellar in the classroom. Kuhlman could wind up blossoming into a significant addition to the program and be an all-league caliber player in the Southern Conference.

Davidson's run to the Elite Eight last year certainly played into the decision on some level, but Kuhlman saw the bigger picture.

"Some people would say that's the reason I'm going there but they have good basketball tradition for a long time. They've been doing good there for a long time in that league."
