    We offered this kid early so the coaches must like something he brings to the table. Not really blown away by the schools we are competing against for him.

    He's from a suburb of Fargo, so probably under most school's radars.

    But yeah, would be great to get a commit from one of the first DL they offered after KDB became coach.

    Anytime you can get a top 1000 recruit you have to be excited

    He's decent. Not a very exciting pickup but has the physical tools. I think Inoke has a pretty good rep as a talent developer. This kid can certainly be better than Sam Taimani with proper development and coaching, which is what this staff is going to have to rely on

    Our TBS team should do an analysis of how players perform when they commit with a well-written letter like that versus a vid like Wedington

    "My dad came with me this time (his coach made the visit with him in April) and he loved it. My mom doesn't fly, so we need to figure out a way to get here out there for a visit. Hopefully during the season we'll be able to get out there. She's supportive of my decision and my dad and I shared with her what it is like out there."

    From the Eckland commitment article.

    Mom won't fly. Just won't.

    Amtrak Fargo to Seattle is $142.

    Just like the twins (the good one at least), this guy will be way better than many of the four star bum DT’s we got during the leveling up phase. Hudl looks good and this guy could be a player.
    Sure … anything is possible and to some extent we all know that OL/DL can be some of the toughest to evaluate

    Data tells us though that you’re more likely to be successful recruiting highly rated players than relying on developing the diamonds in the rough … that shouldn’t be that debatable

    He’s not a diamond in the rough. He was offered a long time ago and targeted. He’s a big kid that isn’t a total slug. The coaches wanted him.

    This is correct, but, this kid was wanted by Minnesota. They aren't a blue blood but Fleck has raised them up to be on equal footing with Wisconsin (split their last 4) and they were the local school in this fight. If the Minnesota never offered or wasn't a player in his decision I'd be more skeptical. I think this was a pretty good get.
    Worth noting that Matt Campbell was the other finalist, and he's the coach many of us wanted.

    With all due respect, this staff as a whole has not completely recruited at a high end P5 level

    So I’m going to take a wait/see on whether the early offer is an indication of having an eye that others don’t or more of a sign that this was viewed as an easy/attainable get
