J.D. Pride calls Minnesota's bluff, commits over the weekend

News has come out that J.D. Pride has accepted a scholarship offer to play football at Minnesota. This is I guess somewhat significant, since he is a very close friend of Seantrel Henderson. Pride's father and uncles (the Barber kids) also went to Minnesota.

However, we know why he got this scholarship offer: Minnesota is doing whatever it can to get Henderson. Pride went to seven camps this summer, some with Henderson, some without, including North and South Carolina, Michigan, Iowa, and Ohio State. However, even with the somewhat now-standard "come and get me" plea on a recruiting website, only one school had offered the two-star QB - the Gophers.


If it works and Minnesota lands Henderson, great. If it doesn't, well, at least he's a Minnesota kid, but if we're really elevating the talent level, this kid will never see the field for Minnesota at QB.
