Gophers Out In Front For Register

The Golden Gophers have been searching the South for that diamond in the rough and might have found him in Lafayette (LA.) Comeaux junior wide receiver Hunter Register

Lafayette (LA.) Comeaux junior wide receiver Hunter Register has the size and skills to excel at the next level, but hasn't been gotten the recognition yet. Minnesota and secondary coach Jay Sawvel saw that potential on film and extended an offer out to the lanky receiver.

"Coach Sawvel used his one call and told me the offensive coaches looked over my tape," Register told GopherDigest. He then told me that they were offering me a full scholarship. I was surprised by the offer. I was just excited and it is a Big Ten school that had offered. Felt like my hard work was finally paying off."

"I am very interested. They are my leader as of now. I do plan on visiting after football season. They are one of the world largest cities. They get a lot of exposure with always on TV and I love cold weather. I'd take cold over heat any day of the week."

The 6-4, 190-pound wide out is a early three star recruit and holds additional Texas Southern and Louisiana Monroe. His recruitment got some notice his past season and he reflects back at his junior season and what his strengths and weaknesses are in his game.

"The season went pretty good," said Register. "I caught 35 passes for 585 yards. We were a run first team. I made all state though. I am exciting player and a playmaker."

"My weaknesses are some of my shorter routes. I don't have as much quickness and that comes with a short guy on short routes. My strengths are I'm very physical. I'm great at high pointing the ball. It usually takes more than one person to tackle me after a catch and I have good feet with the ball."

Register doesn't know where he will be visiting yet this summer
