Sophomore F Joe Krabbenhoft is on Gophers' radar

6-7 sophomore forward Joe Krabbenhoft of Sioux Falls (SD) Roosevelt is already being called the best player to come out of the state since former NBA Rookie of the Year Mike Miller. The Minnesota Gophers have expressed interest in the talented player whose recruitment will likely take off this summer.

Joe Krabbenhoft was named first team All-State by the AP and led his team to the final four of the state championship. Krabbenhoft plays for the Dakota Schoolers AAU team, but might join the Howard Pulley Panthers AAU squad in some events. He made an unofficial visit to Minnesota, which is just 3 1/2 hours from home. North Carolina and Kansas were his two favorite teams growing up.
