    As we all know, the great equalizer between our 4-star recruit and their unranked recruit will be some referee in the Kohl Center at a key point in some game. That is the grotesque beauty in our ongoing and eternal frustration.

    So cynical (don't blame you)

    Looks like Johnson just was offered and took an official visit to Florida - optics don't look good there. According to 247 Nelson is scheduled to be on campus for official tomorrow - I presume he is sticking around for MSU game. Would appear Nelson is our best shot at solidifying class with PG / CG. Fingers crossed.

    Yeah until Wisconsin finds someone better than him to offer a scholly to next year.

    According to Ryan James, Oak Hill's coach says Johnson will be visiting here this weekend.

    Yeah, seems like a risk on Hedstrom's part. If he were on full scholly I'd actually like this move because it ties up another Wisc scholarship with a mediocre player.

    BTW I wish we'd cancel the tuition reciprocity we have with Wisconsin, really is of little use to Minnesota. Allows walk ons like Cichy, Sorenson, and now Hedstrom to leave the state without penalty, and on the flip side it helps further infest our student body with a bunch of Badgers.

    That's a pretty big win, even if its only a visit. Too bad he didn't visit a month later with much nicer weather. Florida is going to be tough to turn down.

    Holy sh*t! Things just got really interesting.

    Funny because I just finished reading Marcus' in-depth post on Nelson and his background (DEF READ IT) and got psyched on him: http://www.startribune.com/new-york-...end/450638343/

    But it's interesting that both guys are visiting the same weekend when we only (seem) to have one spot left in this class.

    So now that it looks like both guys will be here tomorrow, WHO do YOU want? The better position fit (Nelson) or the higher-rated 4-star (Johnson)??

    I would take Nelson hands down...watch his footage and I think you will think the same.

    Pitino must think that McBrayer or Coffey can fill the backup PG role in 2018 if Johnson is visiting and a viable option.

    OR

    He's not planning on having a freshman backup his PG slot and thinks, like almost every year since who knows when we'll have attrition this offseason and he'll have a transfer scholarship open.
