"Scout.com" is reporting that the Minnesota Gophers have picked up the top punter in the nation.
http://story.scout.com/a.z?s=176&p=2&c=652761

Brookfield (Wisc.) Central punter Bradley Nortman (6-3, 210) has made his collegiate choice.

"Bradley has committed to Minnesota," said Chris Sailer of Chris Sailer Kicking. "He is a very talented punter and we have him ranked the #1 high school punter in the nation at this point."

Nortman, an all-state pick in 2006, excelled at Sailer's Kicking Camp earlier this year.

"Bradley has more natural punting potential than anyone in the nation in the class of 2008," said Sailer. "He is big, tall, strong, and a great athlete. Potential punters like this don't come along often."

The best part is we stole him from Wisconsin!
;D

6-3, 210.
Wonder if he can do anything else other than kick.
Heck he might even be able to tackle somebody.
;D

There might be more to this story...I remember a certain time in my life when...

The gophers are up on the badgers late in the fourth, the Gophs will be punting it away near their own end zone.
Good snap... whoopsies... botched it.
Badgers win.


Hopefully this kid has good hands too! Haha, I was about 15 rows away from this action in the dome, lets hope that the Wisconsin kid isn't in on a conspiracy theory.


Ok, I doubt that he is but I just had to say something about one of the worst days of my life.

It is sad that the most exciting commitment so far to the gophers is a freakin punter...

Thehy said Brewster was a great recruiter when they hired him.
Maybe they were right.
I know he already got his son to change his commitment to the U of M.

Actually, the Gopher football team has done a pretty good job of recruiting. They have picked up One 4 Star player, four 3 Star Players, and two 2 star players. And it looks like they are on the verge of getting one of the top prospects in the country, Michael Floyd, a receiver from St. Paul (MN) Cretin-Derham Hall
Here's the lineup so far:
*** Roszell Gayden OL 6-7/260 65
** Ryan Grant LB 6-1/215 NR
*** Brendan Kelly DE 6-6/225 37
**** Sam Maresh LB 6-2/240 14
** John Nance ATH 6-4/185 NR
** Bradley Nortman K 6-3/210 13
*** Shady Salamon RB 5-10/175 17
*** Kevan Walker WR 6-1/186 52

I started up this year as a season ticket holder. I was one in school for 4 years but have not been for about 5 years. Should be a awesome season. I mainly purchased thm to get 1st dibs on the season tickets once the new stadium opens up. All the typical minnesota bandwagon fans will come out of the woodwork once that stadium opens up and it will be extremely tough to get tickets at that point I am thinking.Nothing beats outdoor football and tailgating!

This could be just what the Gophs need to take them over the top and win the National Championship.

Hey, if the offense can't move the ball . . . and the defense can't shut down the opposing team . . . it's the punter that'll get you out of the end zone!
