Because he sucks?
A starting homegrown talent at a P5 program isn't wanted? Depth/competition is always needed and I'd take that in a heartbeat. We want to used 6 plus OL. Truth be told, I'd be surprised if he came here.

Anyway, we don't need a tackle. We need interior guys (depending on what JMS and Andries do)

So?

He stinks as much as what he thought about his hometown state. He can stay down in Lincoln

He's a 20 year old kid playing for Nebraska.....how did you expect to answer a question about playing against Minnesota.

He's got three years of eligibility left....he's one of the top recruits out of the state of Minnesota the last half dozen years. I would definitely take a chance on him.
Yep, if a guy like Benhart wanted to transfer in and the coaches felt they could fix his flaws and make him serviceable it would be worth the risk.

Yeah, I guess I'd probably take him if Fleck thought he was better than what we have. I know I'd prefer Ersery than Benhardt. He was really bad at Nebraska.

For tackles, we have Guedet from the 2019 class, and Ersery, Lewis, and Lawrence from the 2020 class. Also some talented freshmen in the 21 class.

Ersery started against Nebraska at RT during the covid issues that week, and did a fine job.

I'd rather invest in our guys.

Don't need a tackle.


Benhart had all the opportunity in the world to play for the Gophers, and gave us the middle finger. Hard pass

For whatever reason top ranked Minnesota OL haven't had a great track record of panning out. It's possible Benhart is just the latest one.

With the way his recruitment worked out, I would be shocked if he ended up back in MN.

Anyone know if he has played at all this year? I think Joe Alt is starting for them as a freshman.

CB and NB seem like our clearest needs for the portal this off-season. We lose Durr, Howden, Harris and maybe TSmith. I don’t think anyone besides Wally even got reps at those spots, so seems like Stapp is worth a shot.

Anyone know who internally is “next up” at those spots?
Is it certain we lose Howden? I thought he had another (COVID) year. Did he walk on senior day?

More Stapp video. I could let myself get excited about this guy. Look at this kid run and hit. The coaches must think he can run at this level. What’s not to like?



Sign Stapp up, we will take him if he wants to be a Gopher!
Have you watched him play?
Agreed, I would be happy if Quinn Carrol decided to be a Gopher. Bryce Benhart and his dad can go pound sand.

I think PJ and Rossi would want him back … need experience in what could be a young secondary next year. Question for me is whether Terrell Smith stays for Coney Durr’s spot.
Ortiz as well, though might be nickle for Harris.
