Jonathan Nwonkwo, a one time gopher basketball commit, actually posted on GH using a burner account and gave updates on his recruitment and visit and then later revealed it was him and he announced his commitment on GH before he publicly announced.Do you know any current or former Gopher football players? The ones I know have said they don't know what Gopherhole is. Maybe they are in the minority but I doubt it.
Plus several parents of recruits have posted on GH or other forums such as Melvin Holland, Connor and Alex Mayes, Tyler Moore and Colton Beebe's fathers.
I know former gopher basketball player Damian Johnson once tweeted that looking at Gopherhole was a players worst nightmare after a loss.
If a player has a huge "all things" thread on them, the thread is likely one of the first things that comes up on a google search and I would bet many players do google search themselves.
