    He's gone to Texas. So sad...

    Or not really. You pick.

    JUCO players are always a crap shoot. If he is reclassifying to 2019 it makes sense for him to look elsewhere because at least for 1 more year the depth at LB looks pretty solid so there would not be much playing time to be had here at that position in the upcoming season.

    Like I said before, stay away the JUCO's.

    Three former Gophers in the NFL were former JUCO's. I think they can be valuable when you're selective.

    43 is the ranking for 2019. Early on we were in the top 25, but not when they stopped adjusting the rankings. 43.

    Our recruiting class was 10th in the Big Ten for 2019. Up from seventh the year before. So in the twi full years PJ Fleck has had to recruit we back slid in year two.

    We’ve been top 25 the past two years in June, at least one year was top 15. We’ve not finished recruiting near the top 25.

    The bigger disappointment is while many have claimed the 2019 class is as good as 2018, there were zero 4* recruits (3 in 2018) and we were behind only Nebraska in the west last year. This year? it ranks behind Iowa, Wisconsin, Purdue, and Nebraska.

    PJ Fleck was brought in to improve recruiting. He’s done better, but overall marginally so and took a step back when the team looked like it was improving in the field at the end of the season, went to a bowl and had more to sell.

    So yeah, I’m not impressed with his recruiting in February as he’d like us to be with the classes in June. I guess I’m looking at the data and seeing that the numbers don’t add up to we’re changing the game in recruiting significantly even with a higher budget, new facilities, and an “excellent recruiter” as the head coach.

    Its very early. Look at what happened with the Gopher Basketball team for 2019. Turned out pretty good after much bashing etc. I trust Fleck and the boys to get it done. Winning this fall will help as we all know.

    It was only a matter of time before Juwan Mitchell decommits. He always had an eye for greener pastures. Minnesota IMHO was his insurance policy.

    On another matter, Losing Bryce Benhart to division foe Nebraska hurts. Did PJ get a reputation in Lakeville as being goofy with his own unique lexicons?

    Post Mitch Leidner and his brother, Lakeville players go elsewhere.

    Mitch Leidners experience under kill and Claeys has ruined flecks chances

    Nubin was a 4 star on 247 and rivals. Clark on rivals. Cheney, Schad, and Adim-Madumere on ESPN.

    My $0.02 is that this will be a sneaky good class.

    Since Leidner the Gophers got Nathan Boe from Lakeville, other than him and Benhart there hasn't been anyone from Lakeville that the gophers offered as far as I know.

    You should go back and read threads on GH from around the time PJ was hired. Your family may need earplugs from all the LOLing.
