Woodbury tight end Nathan Bursch was very impressive at the Gophers camp on Sunday

Woodbury tight end Nathan Bursch was very impressive at the Gophers camp on Sunday, and could an offer be close? Bursch spoke with GopherDigest about his camp experience.


"I think I made a lot of noise yesterday," Woodbury tight end Nathan Bursch said to GopherDigest about his camp performance. "I think it went really well. I had a lot of fun getting to put my hands on people and hit. I feel like I tested really well besides the forty. I know there was some questions of me being fast, but I wasn't slow in the trenches or in routes, but there is also a lot of room for improvement from me that I will be working on this summer and showing this fall. I feel I learned a lot from Coach Reeves yesterday on what I need to work on this summer. I loved working on the board drill because it has been way too long since I've hit somebody. It's one of my favorite drills because it is where you separate the boys from the men."

Bursch received some good feedback from the Minnesota coaches. 

"Tight ends coach Rob Reeves said he really liked what I did and said that we'll be in touch soon," Bursch explained to Scout.com. "I talked with most of the other Gopher coaches very briefly and just shook their hands. Coach Sherels said to one of my coaches that they're in love with me now."

A Gopher offer would go a long way for the Woodbury tight end. 

"It would mean a lot because I've always dreamed of playing in the Big Ten and grew up watching the Gophers all my life," Bursch said. "I love playing football in the cold. I've been to at least one game every year since they played in the Metrodome to now playing at TCF Bank Stadium. The nice thing is i would be close to home were all my friends and family can come watch me play and represent the state of Minnesota. As far as upcoming camps, I'll be at Wisconsin this weekend with my basketball team, but I'll also be camping at North Dakota, NDSU and SDSU for football here soon. We'll see what Minnesota says here soon."
