Gotta love kids who are the reverse of what usually happens (didn't grow up Gopher fans and want out of the state). Otherwise, he'd be gone.

Took a look and Wisconsin is killing it for 2021

They have the top 6 instate kids
#1 from PA, MN
#2 from IA.

Interesting that NE #1 is committed to MN
Iowa #1 is committed NE (Iowa missed on top 3)

Top players in WI, IA, MN, NE are staying with these teams. No wonder the recruiting trail is a bit tense.

WI - 6 of 6 staying in WI
IA- 12 of 15 picking one of these teams
NE- 7 of 7 picking one of these teams
MN- 6 of 8 picking one of these teams

For those who want to see those lists (I like to show them sorted by 247's own rankings, but you can switch to composite at the top on each screen):

https://247sports.com/Season/2021-Football/RecruitRankings/?InstitutionGroup=highschool&State=MN

As Max Jr said, it's only three guys in Iowa and two in Minn who aren't picking one of those four schools:

Iowa: #6, #15 going to Iowa State and #10 going to K-State (coach is from NDSU and previously was a big Northern Iowa guy)

Minn: #2 Joe Alt going to Notre Dame :rolleyes: and #7 Bastian Swinney going to Cal :sneaky: . There is also #9 Tyler Magnuson (Wayzata OT) going to Syracuse.


(IMO, neither Alt nor Mahlman at Wisc will ever be starters. Yeah I'm bitter guy for saying that, and yeah you gotta follow your dreams, but I still think they were stupid decisions, even if they didn't come to the U instead)
