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.
The Gophers received official paperwork Wednesday, the first day transfer students can accept football scholarships, from Damien Wilson, a linebacker from Jones County (Miss.) Junior College, the university announced.
The 6-3, 230-pound Wilson made 122 tackles in nine games for Jones County last season, ranking second in the league. He chose Minnesota over Kansas and Louisiana Tech, among other schools. Wilson plans to enroll in time for the start of the semester in January and will take part in spring practices.
