    One Cretin-Derham Hall player, Michael Floyd, was so impressive at the Notre Dame camp that coach Charlie Weis made a scholarship offer through the Raiders' coaching staff. High school juniors can't be directly offered tenders until Sept. 1.

    Floyd, a 6-foot-3, 193-pound wide receiver, received a private workout with Weis and former Irish quarterback Ron Powlus. Floyd, who ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash at the workout, ran every route Weis and Powlus wanted and caught every pass.

    Minnesota and Iowa also have offered tenders to Floyd, and because the Gophers were the first school to offer, their offer is expected to get serious consideration.

    Cretin-Derham graduates who will play for Notre Dame this season are left tackle Ryan Harris, a preseason All-American who is projected as a first-round pick in next April's NFL draft; tight end Marcus Freeman; and offensive right guard Matt Carufel.

    Former Irish running back Rashon Powers-Neal, also a Cretin-Derham Hall grad, will be in training camp with the Denver Broncos this summer. Carufel, who will be a freshman, has been in South Bend working out and is expected to see playing time this fall as a second-team lineman.

      Rivals is reporting that Michael Floyd received an offer today. I'm still waiting to confirm from a secondary source.

      Looks for a fight between us and Minnesota for this kid. Same school as Ryan Harris, RPN, Carufel, etc. Very solid high school football program so let's hope we land him.

        I just wanted to let everybody know that this kid looks great. I live in MN and just saw the highlights of his game today. He broke loose for a 70+ yard touchdown pass. He is big, quick, and extremely mobile. Just thought I would let you know.

              Cretin-Derham made Friday night a nightmare for them by scoring on its first five possessions to hand Roseville its first loss this year, 47-15 at O'Shaughnessy Stadium on the University of St. Thomas campus.

              Tailback Shady Salamon contributed 95 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries, and he caught three passes for 49 yards and another TD. And Michael Floyd caught his seventh and eighth TD passes of the season while making four receptions for 80 yards.

I am not sure what the link is, but Svo, you found it last time for everybody. Sorry I couldn't give the link, but I just wanted to let everyone know that he had another great day.

                      Football: Junior wide receiver Michael Floyd is being pursued by some of the nation's top college programs.

                      Cretin coach Mike Scanlan said the 6-foot-1 Floyd is attracting serious interest from Miami (Fla.), Southern Cal, Florida, Florida State, Texas and Notre Dame, which already has offered Floyd a scholarship.

                      "I'm getting five or six pieces of mail for Michael from schools every day," Scanlan said.
                      Floyd has 24 catches for 510 yards and 10 touchdowns for Cretin (5-0, 4-0 Suburban East Conference).

                          I just wanted to let everyone know, that last Friday night, Michael Floyd had 10 catches for over 200 yards and two touchdowns. His team is still unbeaten and are ranked number two in the state of Minnesota.

                            Floyd kick-starts Raiders

                            The feats of Cretin-Derham Hall wide receiver Michael Floyd are growing by the week.

                            Floyd, a strong, fast and elusive pass catcher, is leaving opposing high school defenses in his wake, and he already has top Division I schools hovering like vultures. The junior gave college recruiters and fans another jaw-dropping, head-shaking performance with his catch-and-run playmaking that bailed Cretin-Derham Hall out of early trouble Friday night.

                            Floyd caught 10 passes for a school-record 228 yards and scored a touchdown to help propel the Raiders to a 28-7 victory over White Bear Lake in a Suburban East Conference game at O'Shaughnessy Stadium on the University of St. Thomas campus. Joe Springer completed 19 of 26 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns for the Raiders (6-0). He has 20 touchdown passes this season and no interceptions.

                            No. 2-ranked Cretin-Derham Hall was flirting with potential disaster early in the game, when its potent offense wasn't clicking. The Raiders were held scoreless in the first quarter for the first time all season by an aggressive Bears defense that kept pushing Cretin-Derham Hall into third-and-long situations.

                            But when the Raiders found their groove, Floyd, along with Springer, set the tempo.

                            On Cretin-Derham Hall's first scoring drive, the Raiders faced third and 16 from their own 14-yard line. One crossing pass later, Springer hit Floyd for a 28-yard gain. Moments later, a sack by White Bear Lake's Derek Weber pushed Springer for a 10-yard loss. Floyd responded with a 12-yard run. Floyd struck twice more on the 16-play, 80-yard drive by catching a 20-yard pass on another crossing route and gaining 9 yards on second and long.

                            "I wasn't really concerned about our offense not clicking," said Floyd, who caught eight passes for 169 yards in the first half. "I think we just needed a spark. On third downs, we need to take advantage of the guys we have."

                            Springer called Floyd "an unbelievable player, as well as a great person."

                            "We picked things up in the second quarter," Springer said. "Mike is always a good one to throw to whenever you are in doubt. He is a great player. Great players make great plays."

                            Floyd, who has 738 receiving yards in six games, caught a 29-yard touchdown pass from Springer and tip-toed just inside the end line during Cretin-Derham Hall's 28-point outburst in the second quarter. Shady Salamon's 1-yard run with 9:49 left broke a scoreless tie and triggered a 21-point scoring spree over a span of 3:51.

                            Springer completed that spree with a 6-yard touchdown pass to a diving Robbie Lambert. Salamon, who rushed for 76 yards, built the Raiders' intermission lead to 28-0 on a 5-yard run with 40.1 seconds left in the second quarter. On that scoring drive, Floyd caught passes of 34 and 28 yards.

                            "I thought we played really good defense, but you can't give a talented team like that a 50-yard field to play on like we did in the second quarter," Bears coach Bob Jackson said. "(Cretin-Derham Hall) is tough enough to defend when you are on a 100-yard field. Our kids played their butts off on defense. We just weren't able to generate any offense to drive the ball."

                            Darius Green had the only touchdown for White Bear Lake (4-2) on a 94-yard run down the right sideline with 8:23 left in the fourth quarter.

                              Charlie Rocks !

                              Michael Floyd :

                              "Notre Dame is my favorite. I like the coaching staff a lot. They offered me a scholarship right after their camp and I might try to go the Notre Dame-UCLA game Oct.21st."

                              Stay on em Chuck !
                              A good coach will make his players see what they can be rather than what they are.

                                Imagine our potential 5 WR set in a couple of years: Benn, Kamara, Little, Floyd, Buckner.

                                Averages: 6'3", 200 lbs, 4.5 speed.

                                Ouch! I already feel sorry for the opposing cornerbacks.

                                  Iowa, Nebraska, and Ohio State are among the offers he has.

                                  Is ND his favorite among the offered?

                                          Floyd was gushing about his visit to Notre Dame and spoke very highly of Notre Dame and his visit. He also made mention that Notre Dame is only bringing in two wide receivers this year... looks like we're done folks!

                                            That's great news. This is the one kid that I would most like to get in the '08 class. Seems like he is pretty much a freak at WR. Plus, them Minnesota kids have really turned out nicely for the Irish in recent years. Here's to continued success with that Minnesota pipeline.

                                                  WR Floyd named AP's Player of the Year for Minnesota
                                                  Posted: Tuesday November 28, 2006 2:02AM; Updated: Tuesday November 28, 2006 2:02AM
                                                  MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- St. Paul's Cretin-Derham Hall High School has produced plenty of top-notch players in not just football but every sport over the years.

                                                  Michael Floyd is the latest and, perhaps, on his way to becoming the greatest.

                                                  "He's got it all for a wide receiver," Raiders coach Mike Scanlan said. "He's got the speed. He's a basketball guy. It's a brave statement, but I think he might be the best athlete we've ever had at the school. When you think he can't make a better play than he has, he does."

                                                  Just a junior, Floyd had 63 catches for 1,240 yards and 16 touchdowns this season for the Raiders, who were beaten by Class 5A state runner-up Lakeville South by one point in the section championship game. Possessing the kind of speed that has big-time college coaches circling him like vultures in search of a scholarship commitment, Floyd averaged nearly 20 yards per reception this year -- his second as a starter.

                                                  For his performance, Floyd was named Player of the Year for Minnesota by The Associated Press, as voted on by a statewide panel of sportswriters and broadcasters who regularly cover high school football. Floyd's quarterback, Joe Springer, also received strong consideration for the honor, along with Eden Prairie linebacker Blake Sorensen.

                                                  Joining Floyd, Springer and Sorensen on the AP's all-state team were 24 other players: running backs DeAngelo Brackins (International Falls), Chris Atkins (St. Paul Johnson), and B.J. Otto (Hill-Murray); offensive linemen Trey Davis (Farmington), Ryan Orton (Eden Prairie), Chris Bunders (Osseo), Steve Herold (Sartell), and Ryan Wynn (Maple Grove); tight end Seth Noreen (St. Cloud Apollo); wide receiver Matt Veldman (Becker); defensive linemen Broderick Binns (Cretin-Derham Hall), junior Willie Mobley (Eden Prairie), Anthony Jacobs (Northfield), and Matt Ulrich (Rushford-Peterson); linebackers Bryce McNaul (Eden Prairie), junior Sam Maresh (Champlin Park), and Jake Harmon (Triton); defensive backs Takarai Hill (Minneapolis South), Nick Andreas (Lakeville South), Matt Griswold (Totino-Grace) and junior Cody Hendrickson (Cromwell); punter Andrew Tewes (Mayer Lutheran); kicker Joe Stormont (Stillwater) and junior return specialist Jeremy Randle (DeLaSalle).

                                                  Floyd is not just one of the most sought-after receivers in the country. He's simply one of the nation's hottest recruits.

                                                  "If you've seen him run in person or on film, it's like he's a thoroughbred," Scanlan said. "He's just got that long, driving stride."

                                                  What makes Cretin-Derham Hall's coaches most proud, though, is his character and work ethic. Though he has spots on the basketball and track teams, Floyd is a fixture in the school's weight room.

                                                  Floyd was unavailable for an interview Monday night because he was out enjoying his 17th birthday. And with scholarship offers from the University of Minnesota, Iowa and Notre Dame, as well as interest from Ohio State, he has plenty to celebrate.

                                                  "It's nice to see something like that happen to such a nice guy," Scanlan said. "I just get the feeling that when my back's turned, he's the same guy."

                                                    Start a precedent Michael. Get on board now for a seat in first class.

                                                        Would be nice to get a stud receiver right off the bat while he is still a junior. Would be a great start to charlie's third class. This kid is a stud from what I have read.

                                                        Arrelious Who???

                                                          Floyd was named to Tom Lemming's All-American Team, and was the only junior to make it.

                                                            I saw that. I was surprised to see that Lemming didn't list Notre Dame as a school of interest. What is up with that?

                                                              don't worry about that. Lemming actually things we're one of the teams to beat for him. Oftentimes the schools he lists for a kid during those little videos are messed up.

From what I have read, Mason was the reason a lot of recruits in the state of MN were turned off. I read this is the Star Tribune today so that is where I heard this from.

The OL is next important followed by CB's and RB's.

In the past few days the plane has also been in VA checking on Nuss, in Pittsburg, I'm guessing this was for Steve Paskorz, and Nebraska.

                                                                                              "Here's this poor guy who just got hired, and everybody's trampling all over his turf," Cretin-Derham Hall coach Mike Scanlan said. "I've read he is a pretty good recruiter and that's what that job is all about. There are plenty of good coaches, [but] if you do not get the players, you will not do very well."

                                                                                              Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis and Rob Ianello, the Irish recruiting coordinator, were in St. Paul on Tuesday to have lunch with Scanlan and watch the Raiders' home basketball game with Hastings last night.

                                                                                              Junior Michael Floyd, one of the nation's most sought-after wide receivers, plays for the basketball team.

                                                                                              Dick Tressel, an Ohio State assistant coach, and Wyoming head coach Joe Glenn also were there.

                                                                                              Floyd has scholarship offers from Minnesota, Notre Dame, Ohio State and four other colleges. Two of Floyd's basketball teammates, juniors John Nance and Joe Schafer, are also Division I football prospects.

                                                                                              Brewster's selection surprised state high school coaches as well as in-state recruits, but they also expressed faith and hope.

                                                                                              "I never heard of him," said Eden Prairie coach Mike Grant, whose Eagles won the Class 5A title last fall. "But you either have to have faith in Joel Maturi or you don't. And I like [Maturi] a lot. I don't think he drew a name out of a hat."

                                                                                              Grant said it will take three seasons to judge Brewster's hiring: "Either people will say Joel is a genius, or people will ask, 'Where did you drag this guy up from?' "

                                                                                              Osseo offensive lineman Chris Bunders, one of nine Minnesotans who have committed to the Gophers, said he was just happy the U finally named a coach.

                                                                                              "I really wanted to see who the coach would be before the signing date," said Bunders, referring to Feb. 7. "[Brewster] has good credentials as an NFL and college coach. I'm excited to meet and talk with him."

                                                                                              Right now, Brewster is only a name Bunders has read a few times in the newspapers: "I don't know every coach in the NFL and in college -- it would be scary if I did. I'm sure he is qualified."

                                                                                              Maple Grove offensive lineman Ryan Wynn, another Gophers recruit, is pleased by what he's heard about his new coach.

                                                                                              "[Brewster] is young, charismatic and will help the Gophers compete at the highest levels," Wynn said.

                                                                                              State's coaches, top players say it's all about recruiting

                                                                                                    New Gophers football coach Tim Brewster on Thursday offered tenders to three Cretin-Derham Hall juniors who last week made unofficial campus visits. They are quarterback John Nance, offensive tackle Joe Schafer and running back-defensive back Shady Salamon.

                                                                                                    Cretin-Derham Hall wideout Michael Floyd, the star of Minnesota's prep class, already had been offered a tender by former Gophers coach Glen Mason.

                                                                                                    Six Minnesota high school juniors are believed to have been offered football tenders by the Gophers. The others are defensive lineman Willie Mobley of Eden Prairie and linebacker Sam Maresh of Champlin Park.

                                                                                                    In past years, Notre Dame has had success recruiting Cretin-Derham Hall players. Brewster's early-offer strategy might pay off. Floyd, Nance, Schafer and Salamon are close friends and might want to remain together in college.

                                                                                                    Meanwhile, Brewster's quarterback son, Clint, said he's nearly 100 percent committed to Illinois. His father, though, still is trying to persuade him to come to Minnesota.

                                                                                                    "Right now I'm going to Illinois," Clint said Thursday from Denver, Colo., where he is a senior at Mullen High. "My decision has been made since last summer. My dad is recruiting me like any other prospect. He says it (Minnesota) is a better situation for me, the school, the campus, how nice it is.

                                                                                                    "There's not too much he can say, though. I've been living with him my whole life, and I think it's just time for us to part ways."
