Continued: Gophers see options at middle linebacker

In junior college, Wilson faced a lot of spread offenses with one running back, so Claeys said he’ll need to get used to facing two-back sets with the Gophers.

“But he has some great instincts now as far as when the ball’s going to cut and things like that,” Claeys said. “A linebacker — the great ones — as soon as you get them lined up, they find the darn ball. You shouldn’t have to tell them a whole lot. He and Jack have come a long ways.”

Notes

• Wide receiver Devon Wright had surgery on a shoulder capsule Tuesday and will miss the rest of spring camp. The Gophers hope to have him ready for the start of fall camp.

• Offensive tackle Jonah Pirsig wore an orange non-participation jersey Tuesday. He’s having more trouble with his left kneecap, but it doesn’t appear he’ll need major surgery.

• The Gophers moved their next practice from Wednesday night to Thursday at 3:30 p.m. Kill has cancelled his one-day trip to the Masters with Gophers booster T. Denny Sanford. The university shelved all fundraising discussions with Sanford until merger talks conclude between Sanford Health and Fairview Health Services, a deal that could give the South Dakota firm control of the university’s medical center.
