JC WR Hayo Carpenter To Make Minnesota Visit

Hayo Carpenter, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound wide receiver from College of the Canyons (CA) CC, will visit Minnesota this upcoming weekend for the Northwestern game. Carpenter is having an outstanding season this year for the Cougars, who are 8-0. He is the only confirmed visitor for Minnesota this weekend, but the Gophers are hoping that three or four other players could make a visit.

Hayo Carpenter caught 65 passes for 1,188 yards and nine touchdowns as a freshman and has raised his numbers this season as a sophomore. Carpenter has caught 66 passes for 1,133 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns. He has two rushing attempts for nine yards and has been a standout punt and kickoff returner. He has returned 12 punts for 259 yards and one touchdown and has seven kickoff returns for 190 yards and one score.

Carpenter finished with 10 catches for 120 yards and two scores in this weekend's 52-29 win over Ventura. The Cougars have a bye this weekend, which will allow Carpenter to visit Nevada Wednesday and Minnesota Friday.

Carpenter will face Pasadena at home Nov. 8 and at Bakersfield Nov. 15. The Cougars will play in a bowl game the following week.
