The NCAA has extended the recruiting dead period until at least May 31, but working from home has done nothing to deter head coach P.J. Fleck and co., earning a verbal commitment from Alexandria wide receiver Kristen Hoskins. The in-state product was offered a scholarship during a FaceTime call with Fleck Thursday night and committed on the spot.
I want to thank @Coach_Fleck for the amazing FaceTime call last night and the full ride scholarship!

Hoskins is an exciting prospect. While he may not have the size of Tyler Johnson or Rashod Bateman, he is no less dangerous in space. His film demonstrates his play-making ability, showcasing his suddenness and elusiveness. Hoskins looks to be an ideal fit as a slot receiver or even in the return game because of his ability to make people miss in the open field. Because the camp circuit has effectively shuttered over the last year, in-person scouting reports on Hoskins are scarce. But reports from his freshman year highlight an 11.04 100-meter dash time and a 4.5(ish) 40 time at a winter camp. This is a good in-state get for the Golden Gophers.
