Of course, Gilliam and Crumpley are bigger stories. However, I was interested to see that the Gophers just offered Leingang, the center from Bismarck. He has some fairly good offers.
Interesting offer list for a kid from North Dakota.

Wyoming and K-State are because both coaches used to coach at NDSU. Guessing CO St because they track their arch-rival Wyoming.

Arizona St is an odd one. Guessing they don't often recruit ND kids. Wonder if he went to their camp uninvited and impressed?

Who is the guy right next to Deven?
I’m not sure. I also don’t know who the white guy in the middle is. There are some more shown in other photos on Tammy’s Twitter account. I think a few aren’t there yet.

Jaydon Hood is in the white long sleeve and the red shirt in the middle is Stevens cousin.

That is what you get when you do the same strength and conditioning as Mike Morris. You get to physically look like him. This kid is going to be a monster when he is through with college and into the Pros.

Is that a really soft commit or something? I'd have to assume that the Gophers are still in the picture then?
This trip was planned before he committed, but who knows? Of course, the others will try to get him to flip while they’re down there.

Looks like he's being recruited by Kevin Mawae at ASU. That's pretty cool for the kid even if he doesn't readily know who Kevin Mawae is. A quick google search will teach him. I'm sure he's a great OL coach, I wonder if he can recruit at all

Agree he seems to be an interesting person and a former great player. Again just doesn't seem likely that an Arizona State coach would find his way to Bismarck, ND. I would guess more likely that he saw Leingang at some camp, somewhere, and was impressed. Maybe a lineman camp? I'm just wild guessing.

The last OL (that I recall, anyway) that we had from Bismarck, was pretty good.

Mr. Eslinger's tape was a thing of beauty.

Kevin Mawae is an NFL Hall of Famer, that has got to impress a high school OL recruit. Leingang looks pretty solid in his film.

He might be the first kid in Bismarck history to have 13 D-1 offers...that alone tells you he's something. He's got some good regional options in addition to the ASU scholly offer. He's got a Yale offer as well.

You'd think Minnesota has got a fighting chance unless he wants to play in a Bohl-type Power scheme. I know Wyoming and NDSU run power...I'm not sure what K-State does

I would think power as well. That’s what worked at NDSU. And it is quite a change-up from what the Big XII schools typically run.

So speaking of ASU recruiting that kid from Bismarck, I finally got around to watching HBO's 24/7 on ASU football. Man...Herm Edwards is cool. I wouldn't blame any kid for wanting to play for him

It's a good watch - I recommend

A coaching staff with previous NFL HC’s in Herm Edwards and Marvin Lewis, as well as solid NFL players in Kevin Mawae and Antonio Pierce would look pretty a appealing to a high school recruit with NFL aspirations.

Having said that, ASU is a terrible team in a terrible town with a terrible stadium and terrible fans - for any potential gopher recruit that may be reading this.

Who are the targets we have a strong shot at now? Doesn't seem to be much news lately, maybe things will ramp up coming out of the dead period. Doesn't seem we are in the driver seat for any of the LBs or DTs we were after. Townley is the one I feel best about right now followed by Leingang. Only other one I can think of is Alt, not sure what he is waiting on I thought he would go to Iowa or MN, but hasn't pulled the trigger.

I heard the school is a bunch of nerds who don't like to party, in the slightest, and they have absolutely no attractive females.

Oh wait ... sorry I'm thinking of Illinois.

Yeah actually ASU is supposed to be one of the biggest party schools in the nation with some of the hottest coeds. Damnit!
