Someone is in the other ear telling them about Rashod Bateman, Corey Davis, Tyler Johnson, etc.c'mon. We all know how this works.
someone - maybe a recruiter from another school - has been in this kid's ear, or in the parent's ear, saying something like this:
"MN runs the ball 70% of the time. At School X, we throw the ball 70% of the time. If you go to School X, that means more catches, more yards, more TD's and more exposure, plus a better chance of going to the NFL."
Like it or not, WR's are divas. most of them want the ball and the spotlight.
MN is going to have to work twice as hard to get top-quality WR's to come to MN. that's just the way it is.
