Still No Word on Hayo, but GREAT News for Gopher Hoops!!

E!SPN's Big Ten blogger Adam Rittenburg had what looked to be updated word in today's Lunchtime Links that Gopher star JC transfer Hayo Carpenter is on his way to Minnesota and is basically a done deal- except the story he quotes, from Pioneer Press writer Marcus Fuller, is actually from last week. That story on Carpenter's pending arrival actually predates the story Rittenburg linked to yesterday about Hasan Lipscomb being ruled ineligble, which also stated Carpenter was still somewhere in transit.

Rittenburg is just getting back from a well-deserved vacation, so we'll gladly cut him some slack on this one. Hopefully an official story of Carpenter's arrival will be coming soon!

While reading Fuller's blog, I did see this morning he posted some GREAT news for Gopher hoops fans (and yes I'm aware this is a Gopher football blog, but I'm assuming that most of you who read this fans also support Tubby and Gopher basketball): super-duper-uber local recruit Rodney Williams Jr. was declared eligbile by the NCAA clearinghouse, so he will be on campus and in uniform for the upcoming season.

Hopefully Brewster's team will get more good news like this in the future too.
