    Not sure I see a combination of two that I wouldn't want
    The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.

    4/5 are top 100 players with Walton at 157 (per 247). I'm hard pressed to see how getting 2 of them would not be regarded as good (obviously we'd all love it if you added more given the caliber of players they are)

    Walton and Carlson are nice but don’t really move the needle. If you want to keep winning 35% of B1G games you should be excited, but otherwise at least one of the top 3 should be a minimum requirement.

    I mean if that’s all the players he signs, yeah that’s an issue if he still has an array of open scholarships. If he fills with additional good players, I don’t care if they’re from here or not if they can play

    Right. I really don't care if they're "the top 3" from Minnesota or some other state with talented players.

    Agree that we should aim for one of the top 3. That being said, landing Walton, Carlson and another high 3 star/4 star player absolutely moves the needle in the right direction.

    I strongly disagree with the notion that we shouldn't be thrilled about landing a Carlson and Walton. They are both big time P5 recruits and are exactly the caliber of player that the Michigans and Purdues of tbe world have built their programs on.

    We need shooters. Walton can shoot.

    Both nice recruits but Carlson is really a long shot now. Purdue and Michigan best assets are their coaches.

    If Pitino/Fleck offer to brother Jordan as well, the Gophs might get both twins. Outstanding athletes.

    If past is prologue we'll get the less talented brother and the more talented one will go elsewhere.

    per Marcus:

    The Gophers gave the next class, those talented 2020 players, another reason to consider staying home by reaching the NCAA tournament for the second time in three years and winning a tournament game for the first time in six years last month.

    Pitino and Gophers assistant coach Ed Conroy made an in-home visit last week with the Suggs family at the start of the spring recruiting period for coaches to make in-person and off-campus contact with recruiting targets. The 6-5 Suggs is a high-profile recruit as a guard in basketball and quarterback in football, and he was part of USA Basketball's Next Generation event in coordination with the Final Four.

    The Gophers are setting up home visits with other 2020 in-state targets such as Prior Lake forward Garcia, East Ridge forward Ben Carlson, Park Center center Dain Dainja and Hopkins guard Kerwin Walton.

    Suggs was offered by Kansas. The 6-11 Garcia could be the next player to get an offer from a top-10 program.

    That will make for another tough recruiting battle for Pitino and the Gophers, but they have another year to get past losing Matthew Hurt.

    "You can't sugarcoat it and act like they're not missing on some of those guys," Bossi said. "It's one thing if players leave for blue bloods. If they leave for non-blue bloods, that's when it's concerning."

    3. Dain Dainja Park Center C 6-8, 240

    Who lands more of these guys Hoiberg or Richard! We shouldn’t be as worried about Duke or Wisconsin going forward. Watch out for Nebraska I’m telling you.

    We need 2 of these kids land all 5 and take us to the final 4. Need one to commit to start recruiting the others.

    I'm not gonna worry about Hoiberg until he actually lands a Minnesota kid. The only one he has ever got is a kid who got kicked out of Minnesota.
