    Default 2019 PWO Commitments

    Many of the kids that we usually lose to FCS programs like NDSU choose to walk-on at the U. We may have the next Blake Cashman or Sam Renner in the pipeline. The nice thing if they can afford to walk-on is that they are not under the spotlight and don't have the heavy pressure/expectations that a scholarship player has. Through hard work, they can focus, earn valuable playing time, and even earn a scholarship. This is good for team depth.

    I am glad that PJ Fleck awards scholies on a regular basis.

    PJ and the U have really benefited from the PWOs. It is great to see so many very good local football players get a chance to live their dream to play for the U! The success of so many PWOs and the way that PJ has rewarded them adds legitimacy to the whole concept. This has got to hurt the next level programs (NDSU, etc) that were counting on these type of players to be the backbone of their programs.

    I'm not surprised, watch his film. He doesn't look like a w/o type of QB.

    From what I understand, PWO commitments are not binding. A kid can change his mind anytime if he gets an offer for a scholarship elsewhere.

    Curious on this list who has the most potential to be an impact player like Cashman?

    I think Graetz is the best player/prospect among that group but he'll also have the toughest time seeing the field because of the position he plays.

    The two WR's Buck and Wright are both pretty good too I think.

    The punter Foley I would say probably has the best chance of seeing the field in his career because we don't give scholarships to HS punters so he is essentially the equivalent to a scholarship recruit at that position.

    Pure speculation - I think the non-commits LeCaptain and Winfield, and them Gopher commit Graetz are most likely the three that we may not see with the Gophers.

    I like Winfield just because of his pedigree. I think he will be really motivated to prove that he should have gotten other offers, he will have his brother and father to coach him as well. Safety is also a position where I don't see a sure fire starter who is gonna lock down all the playing time.
