    Needs to get better with his hands and feet but he certainly doesn't struggle with the physical side of the game.

    Worth noting: We are just 11 months removed from our most talented WR and almost the entire RB corps being separated from the university.

    But generally, I agree with you. They’ve focused a lot more on fit the last few cycles. Fewer five-stars but more kids who’ll stick with it. And that lifts up the culture of the whole program. Not so long ago, Dex, Mack, Coney and Claypool all could have been at high risk of transferring out at various times in their career. Instead they helped get to the playoffs.

    Also, a lot less recruiting drama. 10 and 12 win seasons back to back certainly help but identifying the right targets early has as well.

    My thoughts as well. Kid does not look like a "round" lineman at his age, which can be common. Very much a Mcglinchy esque figure if you will.

    I am so fired up over this class. Hope 2018 is a good one for us!

    I've always had a soft spot for the Gophers. Closest FBS school. Quirky mascot. Perennial underdog. Yet i got a dick satisfaction seeing them pout about a highly rated kid leaving the state. Minnesota rarely, if ever, keeps their best kids in state. To make it worse, they miss on a ton of kids who would kill to be gophers who end up at North/South Dakota St and turn into good players.

    Quinn's currently #33 on Rivals. #33 was a 5 star in both '18 & '17.

    I will try to get some first hand accounts of him this fall. Might even listen to the crowd chatter.

    ND has had a lot of success with MN guys in the past, I think that continues here.

    I'm guessing if we looked back at Blake Barnett's thread, there were probably some similar type comments from the IE faithful.

If he was truly as bad as they talked, he would have been on one of the ESPNs and pulled a bus away from a fishing hole and pulled out a trout with the chosen school's logo while pumping out beats fro (insert hottest music star among high scoolers right now) with laser lights and fireworks and so forth and so on...

    I guy who sat for a super short interview with local sports guy does not come off to me like a big attention seeking "doosh".

    Plus those posters there seem to think all we get are 5 star guys and should be winning NCs every other year. Like we are clones of Alabama or pOSU...seriously...

    From their message board post #249.

    Lol!!!

    I'd bet that the Gophers will have more OL drafted in the next 5 years than the Irish... and they will also have better seasons...

    That's my prediction and I'm sticking to it!

    I would like to see Quinn at RT personally. If you want to read a bunch of salty posts and drink some Gopher tears, read this glorious thread. The best parts are the last few pages.

    I won't be surprised if he replaces Kraemer in two years,
    Similar career path. Start at RT and then slide inside, if necessary.

    I am jacked that we got a TOP OL guy and he is from MN.

    From all accounts, QC is a great kid and humble as they come. You should read the message boards from Gopher fans, down right losing their mind that someone had the audacity to go on local TV and announce his decision to a school that isn't the hometown team. Very little class with that bunch.

    I really am interested to see where he ends up on the line. I'd like him to stay at tackle and be a book end with Kristofic, but he is also a mauler who could play up inside. Time will tell I guess. 3/5 of the dream OL on the books?
    Not from Minnesota, just understood your intention immediately. It's easy to connect with certain online personalities based on one's own default interpretation/understanding of them.

    I thought your posts carried at least a standard deviation's worth of humor above the typical post here.

    I never predict who'll play in a particular spot because we've seen Zack Martin as a tackle and a number of players move interior after being extolled as edge defenders.

    Signing as many players like Quinn are what give us Joe Moore awards and many OL draft picks. Great pickup for us.

    I thought he was pretty clearly mocking Minnesotans, and I thought it was funny, for whatever my opinion is worth.

    More importantly... big pickup!

    all good man, just thought almost all of your posts were on this guy...you knew about the "sarcasm font" and have low posts so these things led me to believe as history on this board has taught me that these things usually mean another poster creating a 2nd account...carry on and post how you like

    Nothing to be sorry about. It was clear to me you were being sarcastic. Not your fault it went over their heads. Though, to keep it clear as day, may just want to use italics next time...

    I love Carroll's tape and immediately thought Kraemer/lesser Nelson. If he goes inside, he gets a lot of playing time Year 2 and could even start.

    I'm highest on Carol right now as a prospect but there's little to go by on what he looks like in pass protection in his tape. When I rewatched his junior highlights last night I can't remember a single rep on it in pass protection lol. In the rep or two on his sophomore tape he looks like he has the heaviest feet of the three but not bad enough too rule him out as a tackle prospect IMO, but if better tackle candidates are available might relegate him to guard. He does however maul the crap out of people head-up and still pulls well, so I think he starts at guard early for ND.
