One trend I’ve started to notice with the Gophers’ new cornerbacks coach Rod Chance on the recruiting trail, and Pless is no exception, is that he seems to value instincts over measurables. Pless is undersized at 5’11” and 175 lbs., but he is a natural cover corner with speed, great ball skills, and the ability to stick to opposing wide receivers and make a play on the ball. I certainly appreciate that he is a physical tackler who can make plays in space.
