I agree with this. We just need to have a successful and exciting program over the course of a few years to make this happen. Gopher sports have been so “blah” for many years. If we can have the kind of excitement we experienced this year I believe a lot more kids will stay home.It won't happen right away but it will be exciting if local kids will have the Gophers at the top of the list. Love for it to be like Wisconsin and Iowa where all the best kids want the in state offer and stay home. I know many posting here don't care if the kids local or not, I'm of the opposite view. All things being equal give me the local kid over a kid from somewhere else, just hate local kids going to a rival and helping them beat the Gophers...salt meet wound! On the other hand I'm of the ilk that I want kids that want to be Gophers. If you are local and WANT to be a Gopher I definitely like that player more. That's you Carter Coughlin and Tyler Johnson! Sounds like this Shakopee kid is in that category, welcome!
