Philadelphia Union Academy grad Seth Kuhn is reuniting with his former U19 coach and a couple of his former teammates at Penn State.
The Wyomissing, Pa. native was announced as part of the 2019 recruiting class by Penn State on Tuesday as a transfer from Duke University.
Kuhn appeared in 18 games in his first season with the Blue Devils last fall. He had a pair of assists and started seven games but saw his playing time reduced after losing his starting job in the midfield.
Duke also lost Union Academy grad Issa Rayyan from last year’s team when Rayyan signed a pro contract with Bethlehem Steel FC last month.
Cook, who coached Kuhn at the U16 level as well, recently lost recruit Ben Ofeimu when he signed a pro contract with the Steel, but academy grad Jeremy Rafanello is returning for his second season and goalkeeper Kris Shakes, a senior at YSC Academy, is committed to join the team this fall.
Cook’s incoming class also includes PA Classics midfielder Kyle May from Lebanon, Pa. and SJEB Rush and Springside-Chestnut Hill Academy goalkeeper Owen Elliott.
