Yep. Same reason people were lamenting the loss of Dickerson even while Walley was playing really well.
Legitimately don’t even recall who Dickerson is. Had to look him up.
I cooled on him!
😎 I did.
I don't think we have heard the last of his recruitment. Still a chance we will recruit him and bring him back in the fold.
How many examples are there of guys committing, de-committing, recommitting, and sticking at MN for their career? IMO move on. Even if a high school recruit doesn‘t materialize the portal should allow PJF to find blue blood castoffs and late bloomers. Throw it and they will come.

I always thought that he was a soft commit and was waiting for a tOSU offer. He is under a lot of pressure from influences in his life.

Rashod Bateman did too late in his recruitment. Fortunately for us, he already had Gopher tattoos that were non refundable.

We want players who want to be Gophers, elite ones or soon to be made elite by the program.

Maybe if he spends too much time on the bench, he’ll make use of the portall like Kirk Ciarrocca did.

Never burn bridges. Native son Quinn Carroll never burned his.
Great post. PJ in my opinion has a great handle on his roster.

Poster boards allowed in the Spring game?

"We want Anthony Brown" might be a good one...

these guys may be skilled athletes, but they are still just kids. 16 and 17-year-olds. they are still figuring out who they are and who they want to be.

throw in a huge decision like choosing a college - and where to play football - and that is a lot for a young person to deal with.

Some kids handle it better than others.

I would rather have a recruit be sure about their commitment, as opposed to making a snap decision, getting on campus, and regretting it a few weeks later. That is a sure ticket for the portal in today's landscape.

whether this kid comes to MN or not, for his sake, he needs to make the best decision he can.

unless we're talking about a once-in-a-lifetime, transformational level of talent, one player more or less is not going to make or break the program.

Agree. I don't blame him for seeing his other options. If I was a WR and seeing how the Gophers offense performed the past 2 years I would be hesitant too and want to see all of my options.

do we need to respect your decision? You didn't ask us to so I assume no.

I would like to thank all my friends on GH for all the love and support. With that said, I have been more than 1000% committed by the State of Minnesota Mental Health Board. Respect their decision.

With Kirk Ciarrocca back and his older brother Michael Brown-Stephens on the team, he is retaking a serious look at the Gophers.

It will be cool if Anthony and Michael can play together on the same team for a year or two. That will be a shared memory that will last a lifetime.

There is a sense of optimism there. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
