I suppose you can argue great but you can also develop great. It's not like Minnesota doesn't have any candidates. Just to name some from MN to D1 2017:Not a lot of great girls basketball players coming out of Minnesota since the years of Dahlman, Wagner, and Coffey. Don't know why that is. Everything is cyclical, I suppose.
We don't know yet if any of this year's players will transfer to other schools. I have no inside information, but wouldn't be surprised if they lose a couple. But it was my feeling that the roster was a bit too big this year. I too would prefer that the Gophers keep a couple of these scholarships in their back pocket and use for the 2018 recruiting class.
She missed most of her freshman year with a knee injury. Started about half the games this year. From what I understand the Gophers and Iowa were also recruiting her out of high school.
From an Oklahoma Sooners messageboard, of all thingsNow that's a good idea!
Rebekah Dahlman will graduate from Vanderbilt and play her final year of eligibility elsewhere. She would also be a good 1 year rental for OU...
The official notice from the Commodores:
Seems to be the player we already knew about. She follow-up tweeted about Paloma Gonzalez (the one we knew about) and there's a story on gophersports.com about her now.Stollings just tweeted that "B1G NEWS coming from the Gopher Camp later today" then had emoji of star-flame-Spain's flag-arrow with letters soon-US flag.
another commit from Spain? or that PG who recently committed coming over officially?
For those who are wishing that Stollings was recruiting Minnesota better, I'm curious as to which Minnesota girls you would have added in the past two years? I not a Stollings apologist, however I'm thinking that there hasn't been much available in Minnesota the past couple of years.
I'm at the point where I'm wishing Stollings would recruit the US better. Nothing against the international players, but they're going to have to be higher quality than they've previously been. I'd like to see another Zahui B or someone with similar talents that can play at the BIG level.
