IMO 22 is huge for Fleck in state. There are a number of outside the Metro kids that may be deserving of a scholarship. Hope they can get on campus for a visit and camp. This will build the connections throughout the state and possibly future walk on’s
Sounds like the OT at Marshall is a MN lean. Burns did a write up on ‘22 yesterday.
Recent Gopher offer:
Still working the pipeline from Illinois.
I think there is more talent in Minnesota this year then is being advertised at this time by sites like 247. Scrolling through that site I found a guy from Minneapolis North named Chester Watley who has a PSU offer already. He is a 6’4” 305 pound guard. Also I think Rashad McKinley is a solid looking prospect from Hill Murray, either at DB or WR.
I would bet the recruiting sites are all way behind right now due to 2020. Camps were cancelled and seasons shortened. Lot less information for them right now to use in setting up their evaluations of the 2022 kids.
Wouldn't shock me if the 2022 recruiting rankings are a little more all over the place than they typically are, especially for guys that commit early to a school. They will probably be playing catchup all season in terms of evaluations.
Yeah gonna be a lot of "Can you belive this guy was a 3 star!?!!?!?" kinda stuf, and "Look at how wrong these ratings were!!!" articles, but really 2020 I think has thrown a wrench in the system.
2022 Classes starting to gain commitments. Ohio State at 10 already, Penn State 7, Rutgers 6, Maryland and Michigan 5. Signing day is 10 months away.
The rest all have 3 or fewer in the Big Ten
going to be a real rough year for the "late bloomers" that are out there. lack of tape, lack of contact. makes me wonder if they'll push NSD back
There’s already more kids entering the portal than can be absorbed by new teams. That’s why I think it’s unlikely we see a bunch of QBs transfers away like some fear. If they want to play, they likely need to go to a FCS school. There’s probably only like a couple dozen FBS schools really looking for a transfer qb, and it’s not like they are looking to plug in a 3 star guy that’s seen little to no action for 2-3 years.The amount of transfers in the next couple of years are going to be exponentially high. Going to be lots of kids who prove to be dominant at G5/FCS schools who transfer to high end programs since they just didn't get that look in HS and at camps from coaches and evaluators, but also kids who end up at top 10/25/etc schools who clearly don't belong and transfer down.
