Gopher football close to landing top recruit

Eden Prairie's Willie Mobley is one of the top rated defensive tackles in the nation and has been offered scholarships from many big time football programs.

However, only one day after Eden Prairie won the Class 5A state championship Mobley announced that out of all the schools interested in him he is only interested in two, Ohio State University and the University of Minnesota.

Mobley has made official visits to both universities and has said he does not know when he will make his official decision. He has also stated he is very confident in the direction of Gopher football. He loves the idea of playing close to home and looks forward to the teams new stadium.

Mobley has also said he feels extremely comfortable with Ohio State and that it is a first class football program.

Hopefully the Gophers don't let another home grown recruit leave the state for a bigger program.
