    Was ISU's top QB prospect for 2018.

    Recruiting was the reason Claeys got ousted for Fleck. All of the other stuff was just the excuse the AD needed. The change was never going to be helpful to ISU recruiting. Not being negative here, just noting that people that thought the Gophers would be crippled by the recent scandal and coaching change are wrong.

    I'm not worried about the QB position for the future right now.

    I love Campbell, but I also kinda wanted Fleck back in the day.

    Wouldn't have minded if Fleck went to a Pac 12 school.....

    If we can keep the 2019 kid I am really not worried about the QB position for the next while. I really like the two we already have plus the young guy

    With the hiring of Fleck and his background, I think we will run into the gophers more often on the recruiting trail, especially in Ohio and Michigan.

    Agree. I will be curious if Fleck locks down minney recruiting ... my guess is that he will. Lots of minney kids go to NDS, especially linemen.
    Got your gift ... thanks. Hopefully you got my email.

    The big 10 has actually put together a pretty good group of new coaches with Meyer, Harbaugh, Dantonio, Franklin, and Fleck. All great recruiters

    Living in the Twin Cities (& having grown up in MN), I still don't see the draw for recruits.

    Fleck can sell hope, (which frankly is not different than we have) & MN actually won 9 games this past year.

    But, even with 9 wins, their less than 50K capacity stadium is usually 2/3 full, at best. And that's in a metro area with 3.5M people. Very few people that live here care about Minny FB - Vikings & Wild reign here.

    I actually hope Minny takes a jump up & starts competing with Iowa & Wisc as long as it doesn't negatively impact ISU. But, I just don't see it happening.

    The fan support is bad, it's obvious after the past few months (& historically), the Minny administration is a mess.

    I just have a hard time understanding why a recruit would want to walk into the current situation. It must indicate Fleck's recruiting abilities.

    This. Zeb Noland and Devon Moore have us covered through the 2018 class and we already have a 2019 QB commit. We'll survive Armstrong to Minnesota.

    I was just in the Twin cities on Saturday. I was surprised to see so much Wild gear around where we were. I did see quite a bit of Gopher stuff but it was a distant 3rd to Vikings and Wild.
