Five who stood out at the Gophers Senior Showcase camp on June 12th.

Gophers held their first senior camp of the summer on Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium, and out of all the campers, here are five who stood out -- and a few more to watch.

McCree worked out as a linebacker on Sunday at Minnesota, and was the best one there. McCree is close to 6'1" and 190 lbs and wasn't afraid to match anyone on the board drill and won most of his reps. He moves well in space and I believe he's going to gain more division one offers here very shortly. His film is at wide receiver, but I definitely believe he's a linebacker at the division one level.

Woodbury's Nathan Bursch was an animal on the board drill as he won most of, if not every rep. Bursch has a great frame for a division one tight end and I wouldn't be shocked at all to see a BCS offer come his way very soon. He's all of 6'5" 230 lbs and has a mean streak to him. My only question would be how fast Bursch is, but he'll be a nice Y tight end at the next level.

Sundt was one of the best, if not the best defensive lineman at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday. Sundt used an array of moves during pass rush drills and more than held his down during the board drill. Easy to see what Sundt has so many FCS offers.

South Dakota was present at the Gophers camp on Sunday and shortly after camp, Campbell was extended an offer if that gives you any indication of how the Hopkins wide receiver's day went. Campbell's speed and explosiveness was on display throughout the day on Sunday, and Campbell's stock could be on the rise.

The northern Minnesota standout in Noah Gindorff showed flashes of what his potential could be at the next level today. Gindorff is a big, smooth athlete who does well in space and has good speed and hands for his size. He's still very raw with his blocking technique being a high school quarterback and has to get stronger yet, but still has all the tools to be a very successful football player at the next level. 

Three more to watch

A 2018 in-state player that stood out on Sunday was Highland Park's Josh Aune. The Saint Paul native was absolutely rocking the combine portion of camp having people ask around who was this kid doing really well. Aune worked out at defensive back and has a lot of potential as a college football player.

The Osseo native showed flashes of why so many FCS schools covet his strength and body. Not many prospects were able to move Jensen on the board drill and he did well during the pass rush part of things as well. Jensen has to keep cutting weight and working on his lateral quickness and footwork to take that next step.

Rousemiller took a step forward from his camp performance at Minnesota last year and is firmly on the Gophers board. Eric is definitely athletic enough and has the build of a division one lineman. Definitely think Rousemiller will see his first division one offer soon.
