There are already a handful of notable names who have already entered the portal, including Will Rodgers, Will Howard, Tyler Van Dyke, and Max Johnson (UNC) to name a few. Even more will flood the portal once bowl season is over. So, the question is, what should the Gophers do? Do we try and get a guy early or do we wait until after NSD and bowl season? Do we try and get a known starter who is limited or swing for the fences on a high upside player who has not seen the field yet? Do we get a one year replacement grad transfer or a guy that will be in our program for a couple years? Personally, I would like for us to take a swing on a high upside mid-major player who would be with us for at least two years. If he is great then he could make us competitive in the new Big Ten, if he sucks then we could get Lindsey some reps early and maybe try again next year. I would also prefer to grab someone sooner rather than later as to avoid being left scrapping the bottom of the barrel. What are your thoughts?
