GopherDigest has learned that the Minnesota commits will be attending a special event this upcoming weekend and here's the latest.
"Most of the Minnesota commits are headed to my cabin this weekend actually," Carter Coughlin told GopherDigest.com. "I set it up because there's a couple guys that haven't met everybody like I haven't met Sean Foster or Conner Olson yet, so we're going to get everyone to the cabin this weekend as there's no better way to bond than that."
With the exception of a few commits, most of Minnesota's 2016 class will be there this weekend.
"Everyone is going to make it except for Tony Poljan and the new Florida twins that committed," Coughlin explained. "Tony can't because he'll be at Sound Body Sound Mind and the twins said they'll be camping at Minnesota this upcoming weekend, so we'll have to just meet them another time. I plan on doing a lot of boating and tubing this weekend with the fellas as we just got a new wakeboard boat so we'll be using that a lot."
Coughlin explains that the trip has been in the works for weeks.
"I actually started planning this a few weeks back so that we all could get on the same schedule and get a weekend hashed out," Coughlin told GopherDigest. "I'm really looking forward to getting to know each one of the guys better and can't wait to have a blast this weekend!"
