Joe Christensen covered Major League Baseball for 15 years, including three seasons at the Baltimore Sun and eight at the Star Tribune, before switching to the college football beat. He’s a Faribault, Minn., native who graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1996. He covered Jim Wacker’s Gophers for the Minnesota Daily and also wrote about USC, UCLA and the Rose Bowl for the Riverside Press-Enterprise before getting this chance to cover football again.
Email Joe to talk about the Gophers.
Just a quick update here. The day after two-star Florida defensive tackle Doral Willis decided to re-open his recruiting process, the Gophers added a 6-6, 300-plus-pound defensive tackle named Sean Ferguson, who made an oral commitment to the Gophers, according to Gopherillustrated.com.
Ferguson attends the Hun School, a prep school in Princeton, New Jersey.
Many Gophers fans would have liked DT Beau Allen in a Minnesota uniform, but Allen, a defensive tackle from Minnetonka who was rated three stars by Rivals.com, has chosen Wisconsin over the Gophers. He also visited Notre Dame.
That's about it. Have a good day.
