Jake Wieneke, Maple Grove, sr, WR: 6-4, 210. Physically dominant, among the few receivers who can control a game. Terrific hands and body control, surprising speed. Caught 53 passes for 1,130 yards and 13 TDs, scoring one in every game in which he played.

Noah Scarver, Mpls. Washburn, sr., TE: Two-way force, Minneapolis Conference Player of the Year. At 6-5, 234 pounds, dominated at defensive end. Caught 27 passes for 382 yards, seven TDS. Had 14 quarterback sacks, 39 total tackles, one interception return for a TD, two safeties.

Zach Ziemer, Lakeville North, sr, OL: The 6-5, 280-pounder has multiple D-I offers. A lacrosse player with quick feet. Excels at run blocking, gets downfield quickly.

John Bednarczyk, Totino-Grace, sr, OL: 6-3, 275, hard-nosed tackle and leader, never gets outworked. Primary blocker for getting tough yards. Agile enough to get off the line, set the edge.

Chad Fahning, DeLaSalle, sr., OL: 6-7, 280, OT. Anchored offensive and defensive lines. Dominates opposing linemen. Twenty D-I schools showing interest.

Michael Warren, Providence Academy, sr., OL: 6-5, 275 OT. A 4.9 40-yard dash. Straight-ahead run blocker, at his best using his agility on sweeps and screens. Wide base, long arms aid in pass protection.

Chandler Wright, Wayzata, sr, OL: 6-3, 265, OG. A mauler who blocks through the whistle. Louisiana native has received interest from Gophers, Iowa and Wisconsin.

James Onwualu, Cretin-Derham Hall, sr., athlete: 6-1, 210, WR/RB/KR. Minnesota's top recruit has an explosive burst, a knack for weaving through traffic and always makes the first man miss. Led the Raiders in rushing and receiving. Committed to Notre Dame.
