    Don't think it was put that way. Not interested in other teams recruits that we are not offering. Minnesota kid with a MN. offer has some interest on this board.

    As noted on another thread, I've seen Yahya Black play basketball for Marshall. Big Body, moves fairly well. Put him on a college weight program and I could see him as an interesting developmental project.

    And - FWIW - this is the same school that produced Blaise Andries. (plus former FB player and current Gopher Baseball player Drew Hmielewski.)

    And Spoof - I think this has merit in light of prior discussions about in-state recruiting. Now, maybe Black wasn't a primary target for the Gophers. I don't know. But, he is still an in-state kid that is getting D1 interest from multiple teams, and is ranked among the top 10 prospects in MN for his class. And, he chose to attend one of the Gophers' primary rivals. I think that warrants a mention.

    Apparently from the commit pic they have a sign in their practice facility that says "The Road to Indianapolis Travels Through These Doors".

    I look forward to our new B1G commish moving the game to his baby, US Bank Stadium, so that Iowa players and recruits get to walk through "The Road to Minnesota Travels Through These Doors"

    I'd be in favor of one single thread for all discussion of opponent recruiting.

    Not a good development with Black going to the Hawkeyes. I hope I'm wrong on this. Time will tell.

    It is difficult enough beating the suckeyes as is. Now it becomes even more difficult beating them with MN. recruits. Somehow we need to put a fence around the State. Who was the last recruit from Iowa playing for the Gophers?

    "Development"? Yup, program is in shambles.

    Some kids in the south part of state want to stay there. Rochester CC and SWMS are not that attractive.

    Minnesota is increasingly becoming a hotbed for Midwest recruiting. Losing guys to Wisconsin, Iowa, and Northwestern has been going on for ages. Now add Nebraska and Iowa State to the list for football.

    In forty years, MN's population grew from 4.05 million to 5.68 million this year - a whopping 28.7% increase. As the population continue to grow due jobs and other demographic indicators, MN will only get more attention in D1 sports recruiting.

    Of course, we will talk about instate players that we'd lost to neighboring competition.

    FYI - Iowa City is not in Southern MN
