The Minnesota Golden Gopher football team signed 22 players Wednesday on National Signing Day.
The number of signees has increased to 24 since and the number may continue to increase before the season starts.
Now we need to find out who the recruits are and how they will fit into the Gopher program.
Here is wide receiver Ge’Shun Harris.
Junior College: Arizona Western College
Hometown: Corona, California
My analysis: I haven’t seen much on him…displayed good deep-threat ability and a willingness to block.
Gopher head coach Jerry Kill’s take: He is a wide receiver who is right here on campus at this point in time. He’s 6’3″, and I think he’s a little bit bigger than 210; probably 220, 225. He is an outstanding receiver. He’s working out with us. You walk out there and you want to see people stand out. He stands out when he’s out there right now. I’ve been through two morning work outs (as of Feb. 2), and it’s not hard to figure out who he is, which is a good thing.
