Player: Jamal Milan, DT
We’ve talked about this battle earlier when highlighting things for the Illini, but the truth is this is going to be the biggest battle heading towards national signing day for the Gophers too. It’s partly because the Gophers are so close to the number of scholarships available and the other part is that they do need some help up the middle coming in to the 2015 season.
Getting the 3-star recruit out of Chicago would be a massive win for the Gophers, who have missed out on no fewer than 10 defensive tackle offers. Winning this one is the last option for the Gophers, but that doesn’t mean Milan was the last option. In fact, he was far from it and could be a name to watch grow in the near future no matter where he goes.
