MN was (and still is) a relatively under-tapped recruiting pipeline for us. Alec Brown was from Winona and Jeff Nordgaard was from Dawson-Boyd, but as a program, we should have hit that state harder than we have been historically. Hope Linc re-established a pipeline there.
From what I could tell in the all time roster the only players from Minnesota for GB are Steve Baker, Alec Brown, Doug Carter, Kaharri Carter, Cole Stefan and Chop Tang.
The first two were good. I don't know Doug Carter. The last three names, not much of a legacy in GB.
There is no time like the present to establish a pipeline to MN.
Also, it was fun reading the names of old players. I totally forgot about some of those guys.
Edit: Obviously I forgot #33 in my list but I know you guys didn't. Did I miss anyone else?
I was actually going to post something similar. You got everybody except David Peterson who played two seasons at GB in 1984 and 1985. So 8 players total from Minnesota since the program started in 1970.

Two months ago it looked like Justice was going to UNI. Now it looks like GB has a legit shot at him. It would seem smart to wait for Justice before going after other players like Cook (no offense to Cook, GB just has a ton of time invested in a bigger in state player).
