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.

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.
