The Gophers have landed another commitment for the 2010 class in Florida running back Devon Wright. Wright also had offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Rutgers, Boston College and Indiana.
Four star linebacker Corey Nelson from Dallas Skyline High School is reported to be visiting this weekend. Although he is committed to Texas A & M and may just be visiting friends, a fifth skyline standout would be a great addition to the squad. Nelson has offers from Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, and LSU to name a few.
Golden Gopher Football Blog has a couple of well written articles discussing the possible Big Ten expansion:
Bottom line is fans and Big Ten folks want more money and more exposure for their conference, yet I remain unconvinced adding a 12th team does either- and in fact could further hurt our reputation. Get with the 21st Century and allow night games in November and December and an extra bye week that pushes the conference schedule back into late November and early December and you'll get your exposure and maintain a steady stream of two teams into the BCS. Oh, and it would also help if we'd start winning some of those BCS bowls and actually producing some skill position talent that was watchable.
