Gopher Baseball is losing a few players to the Major Leagues.

Scott Matyas - has not yet signed but he is a senior and is ineligible to come back anyway. You may remember that he was drafted by the Detroit Tigers.

A.J. Petterson - was drafted and now signed by the Minnesota Twins. I'm thrilled that he landed with the Twins, though he'll be sorely missed in the Gopher lineup.

Nick O'Shea - was drafted by the Astros and has also signed a contract with the Cincinnati Reds.

Justin Gominsky - has signed a contract with the Houston Astros.

Austin Lubinsky and T.J. Oakes were also drafted in the later rounds. I have heard nothing about their status.

  • Gopher Football picked up a another commitment. Dinero Moss is a DB out of Florida. He is a 5-11 corner who may end up a safety. Also had offers from Nebraska, UConn and some mid-majors. ESPN eval says, "Has big-play ability but is also a reliable last defender when deployed at safety. Shows good zone skill-set reading the quarterback and seeing routes develop. Anticipates the pass well and does a good job jumping routes and closing the cushion. Positions himself correctly in one-on-one coverage and shows good range when locked up on an island.". YouTube video can be found here.
  • Five with ties to the Women's Gopher Hockey team will participate at the Women's Summer Development Camp at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO.
  • This is older but USC may be missing their top returning rusher, Marc Tyler, for the Gopher game in September.
