    Default 2019 PWO Commitments

    This is about a month old. The first known 2019 Commitment offer is out already. He has offers from NDSU and SDSU.

    Gophers extend an in-state PWO to Edina defender Cavanagh

    Gophers extend an in-state preferred walk-on offer to 2019 Edina defender Matt Cavanagh, and he discusses his recruitment with GI.
    Ryan Burns - Mar 14, 8:34 AM

    "On my Gopher visit, I was able to meet a lot of the coaches, especially Coach Simon, Coach Fleck and Coach Addae, the DBs coach," Edina defender Matt Cavanagh said to GopherIllustrated. "After talking in the recruiting room for a little bit, I got to sit down with Coach Fleck and that’s when I was offered a PWO opportunity. We then checked out the stadium and tried on the new jerseys which was a really good time. After touring the city for a little I got to see the new athletes village which really blew me away. Everything from the practice field to the locker room to the weight room was nicer than anything that I’ve seen. Coach Fleck gave a presentation at the athletes village about the program’s culture and I was about ready to run through a wall at that point because I was so hyped up."

    "Coach Addae asked me some questions about myself just to get to know me and he said he saw me as a strong safety for the Gophers defense," Cavanagh explained. "He explained the position a little bit but we didn’t have a ton of time to talk so I’m planning to visit again soon for a spring practice or something to get to know him and the defensive scheme better. The PWO conversation went incredibly well. I didn’t expect coming out the visit with any type of offer so I was gratefully surprised and honored when he told me. I’m really into Coach Fleck’s idea for the program and having an opportunity to be a part of the team that I’ve always cheered for is really exciting. He said based off what I showed on film alone they were prepared to offer. He basically said I’d be a good addition to the program which really excited me."

    An in-state PWO offer is making waves with the Edina defender.

    "This offer (preferred walk-on) offer from Minnesota is a dream come true, and I'm super excited about it. I'd love to play for the Gophers," Cavanagh told 247Sports. "I've also hearing from North Dakota who has already offered, South Dakota State and Penn, both of which I'll be visiting this weekend. NDSU and South Dakota are two more schools I'll soon hit, and some Ivy League schools. Most schools are seeing me as an outside linebacker or strong safety, and both of which I play in high school, so I'm good with it!"

    Not incredibly fast, doesn't pop off on film, but wants to be a Gopher. And he lists his GPA. Seems like a great PWO.

    He's obviously the best player in the state if the fighting sioux offered him.s/

    EDIT: I see that UND offered and not NDSU as reported in the OP so nevermind.

    The chance to play football in the Big 10 and go to an Ivy League for your Graduate Degree (where it really matters).

    Illinois punter Tom Foley pulls the trigger on his MN PWO
    By Ryan Burns, Gopher Illustrated, June 12, 2018

    https://247sports.com/college/minnes...-PWO-118976446

    Interesting comment about Gopher Recruiting:

    "To be honest, Minnesota felt like home the moment I stepped foot on campus. I can now see why Minnesota is getting all the top tier recruits that they are getting."

    The new facilities is definitely a game changer!

    He actually did both at WVU. 62 punts his senior year. Either way, hopefully his frame allows for him to boom the ball. I'm tired of seeing 30 yard punts flutter out of bounds.
