With Bryce McNeal coming to town on Saturday, the Little Brown Jug weekend is going to be a big one for recruiting.
But even in losing the homecoming tilt, the Gophers managed to impress a couple of recruits and have added two big names to the verbal commitment list.
Heyo Carpenter will be a JUCO transfer from College of the Canyons. He's one of the top JUCO receivers in the country and ranked 11th on Rivals top 100 JUCO players for 2009. Heyo runs a 4.4 40 yard dash and Rivals considers him a 4-star recruit, while Rivals lists him as a 5-star at his position. Also, on a personal note, I will be excited next year to begin yelling "HEYOOOOO!!!!" Especially considering I already like to yell that.
Next, we get to welcome more help to the defensive secondary.
Kerry Lewis is another commit from (Don't Mess With) Texas, was ranked in Rivals pre-season top 100 in the state of Texas and is considered a top 40 cornerback in the nation. He's 5'9", 179 lbs, and as a prototypical CB, also runs 4.5 in the 40.
Two nice commits Gopher Nation!!! Let's land a few more this Saturday!
