Football Recruiting, Gopher Nation Top 15 (16)

Rivals (great site and I strongly encourage a subscription) has a list of some of the top uncommitted players in the Midwest. It would behoove Coach Brewster and staff to land any of these guys that they can get to listen to them. There are several who have MN on their radar, here is a recap of the article...

  • Mike Floyd - team to beat is Notre Dame with OSU as a darkhorse. No new information here.
  • Cordale Scott - team to beat is Ohio State with Wisconsin as darkhorse.
  • Brandon Green - Minnesota is the team to beat with Illinois as a darkhorse. 4-star and #243 overall according to Rivals new top 250.
  • Willie Mobley - team to beat is Iowa (?) and UCLA is the darkhorse. I still believe that MN is in good shape to land Mobley, but a couple Big Ten wins are crucial. Mobley is a big fish that Brewster needs to land.
  • MarQueis Gray - team to beat is Minnesota with Oregon as the darkhorse. I'm liking Gray more and more, I hope to see him at TCF in a couple years.
  • Corey Johnson - team to beat is Mich State with Minnesota as a darkhorse. New name on my radar, but Johnson has an impressive list of offers (Flor, Neb, Mich St, Wis, Minn, K St and Vir). We all know that we need WRs.
  • Dawawn Whitner - team to beat is Illinois and Minnesota is darkhorse. Another new name to me. W Vir, L'ville, M'lnd, Pur, Mich St, Minn, Ill are the schools offering Whitner. 6'3", 285, #37 overall DT and 24th in the state of Ohio.
