    Mason Madsen is not the hill to die on for that issue. I can think of plenty of better examples then not giving a token scholarship to a good not great prospects twin brother

    If Gabe were a top 50 player, maybe. As it is, no.

    STrib: Recruitment picking up for Gophers 2020 target Gabe Madsen and his twin brother

    Q: What are you telling schools during the recruiting process about playing with your twin brother?

    A: I’ve kind told everyone the same thing. We’re going to do the best for ourselves. If it so happens there’s a situation where we can play together we will go with that. That would be awesome. But we have to do what’s best for ourselves. I don’t understand why some schools aren’t offering him. We’re always in the gym together and our 1-on-1 games are competitive all the time. We’re just different players. I’m just a little bit bigger. There are less people who are 6-6 who score the ball. He’s 6-3 and there’s more people playing point guard, but I guess that’s it.

    Q: Does getting offered by the Gophers mean something different since you’re a Wisconsin native (moved from Bloomer to Rochester in 2017)?

    A: I know I’m not from here, but when you get that home state offer there are some people who go ‘Wow.’ If you get an offer from some other schools they don’t know about it’s not the same. That’s because everybody knows about the hometown school. Obviously, it’s cool because it’s your home state (now) and not many people in the home state get offers. It’s a cool thing. I like watching basketball, so I’ve always watched them (growing up).

    Q: Where are you as far as deciding which schools to visit officially and making a decision?

    A: I’m just moving forward and taking it as it comes. I’m going to go through the summer and see what happens. I’m going to look at my schools and see which one fits me best. That’s the one I’ll go with. (Coach Pitino) just told me I fit his style of play well and the program. He told me they need someone in the 2020 class to get the committing started. He just wanted me to be that guy to kick it off. He just needed someone to play (his position). So that’s appealing, so we’ll see what happens. I hear from (the Gophers) once or twice a week. Not crazy but enough to see what’s happening. The Iowa State (assistant) coach texts me every day. That’s the most from any school (before he got the Cyclones offer). Texas just recently started to text me pretty consistently. Texas Tech got on it a few weeks ago texting me. They just said they would be watching me at the tournaments in July. Virginia Tech just called me (two weeks ago).

    Q: How encouraging is it to see other Minnesotans pick the Gophers? Discouraging to see locals not stay home, too?

    A: You definitely look at who is playing there now. You obviously look at who stayed and who didn’t. But just more so looking at who you would play with. I’ve talked to them at the camp.

If so, why haven’t we offered? I ask because we have offers our to several other guards. I feel like we need a small forward type who can reall shoot from the outside in this class and Gabe could fill that role nicely.

    Based on the number of guys that are being pursued by this staff (a ton) I just don't see them taking Mason. If Mashburn, for example doesn't come/decide until October, just to use one example, no way are they going to give that one to Mason prior in order to get Gabe. Gabe has to decide he wants to be a Gopher as do a lot of these locals or the ship is going to sail without them. I hold out hope for a Suggs, Garcia, Walton class. That's a Big Ten championship competitor when added to who we have.

    Only Cincy has offered Mason and they already have a PG commit. Though not sure about their roster make up. Xavier seems to have a ton of guards and wings in this class. If we get Gabe on campus I think we have a good shot.
    One thing that doesn't seem to come up, is guys like Mason who stay uncommitted and have good senior years, tend to get better spring offers. Do the Madsen's wait it out? Even if they don't play together, a guy like Gabe could get some quality late interest
