The Gophers 2010 Recruiting Class is looking good on paper (#27, Rivals, 10/31/09).
The most recent commit, Josh Huff from Aldine TX is a (4* Rivals) game changer type of RB.
Take a look at his video:
This kid has 4.4 speed, runs well on sweeps and pitches, as is deadly after the catch as a receiver. It appears like he has good running instincts.
Hope to goodness that he'll not be academically ineligible like Hasan Lipscomb. IMO, Brewster is rolling the dice on fringe players that may be overlooked by major FB powerhouses with a potential for a big payback.
In addition to speedy backs, I'd like to see the Gophers go after a bruising back - someone like current Badger John Clay (6'1, 245 lbs) or the great Badger running back Ron Dayne (5'10", 250 lbs). Now, we are talking about real smash mouth mano-a-mano Big Ten Football.
It appears that the Gophs are recruiting pretty decent, big beefy OLs. I am not holding my breath on this one.If Campion and Searcy rejoin the team, that will be a loaded frontline.
Imagine how big the OL will be if Seantrel decides to commit to the Gophs. About the only chance they've got is if the Gophs win their remaining games. Yes - beat Iowa.
Can't stand seeing current OL getting beaten on the outside rushes.
Hopes springs eternal. One thing you have to credit the Brewmeister - he is trying. Oh well. That is my penney's worth of thought.
