Two B1G Schools On Top For Coughlin

One of the top in-state players for next year's class is Eden Prairie (MN.) junior outside linebacker Carter Coughlin, who took an unofficial visit to Minnesota this past weekend. He talks about the trip and who stands on top of his leaderboard at the moment

The Gophers had several in-state visitors on hand for their big win over the Wildcats this past weekend. One of those visitors were Eden Prairie (MN.) junior outside linebacker Carter Coughlin, who got the opportunity to talk with linebacker coach Mike Sherels and see how wanted he is in Minneapolis.

“I arrived at the end of the first quarter, so I watched the duration of the game and then went in the locker room to see the post game stuff,” Coughlin told GopherDigest. “I talked to Coach Sherels. He told me how glad he was I could make it. He talked about how he loved watching me play when he came out to our game, how much he wants me to play for him and how I could help build a power house football team along with the other in-state recruits if we all stay.”

The 6-4, 200-pound athletic linebacker sits as the No. 17 outside linebacker and a early four star by Scout. He has backed up the ranking with his game this year as he has been a tackling machine this season and garnered the interest of several schools. However, two schools are standing out to him and he explains what he likes about them.

“Right now, Minnesota and Ohio State are my top schools,” said Coughlin. “I like how invested the linebacker coaches from both colleges are in me.”

Coughlin doesn’t have any visits planned upcoming
