WR/QB Donovahn Jones
The 6-3, 190-pound Stockbridge, Ga., native could give the Gophers the deep threat they’ll need with Devin Crawford-Tufts concentrating on track and Andre McDonald suspended for another violation of team rules.
Jones is behind Nelson, redshirt freshman Mitch Leidner and freshman Chris Streveler on the quarterback depth chart, so his quickest way onto the field is at receiver.
The quote: “At [Friday’s] practice, he just made three or four unbelievable football plays,” Kill said. “We’ve spent more time with him at receiver, and we’ve got to sell out and get him to learn receiver; he’s just too good of an athlete.”
Other top newcomers
K/P Ryan Santoso
The Gophers gave him a scholarship, and he’s a candidate to handle kickoffs, field goals and/or punts. Senior Chris Hawthorne might take the field-goal duties, leaving the rest to Santoso.
WR Eric Carter
The Lakeland, Fla., native made a good first impression as a playmaker early in preseason camp.
WR Drew Wolitarsky
California’s career leading high school receiver has been slowed in camp because of a hamstring injury.
CB Jalen Myrick
Could play on special teams this year, as Murray did last year before becoming a starter at cornerback.
S Daletavious McGhee
Senior safety Brock Vereen said McGhee already is one of the hardest hitters on the team.
The Gophers are deep at safety, but McGhee could see time on special teams.
LB De’Niro Laster
He has the size (6-4, 230 pounds) and skill to contribute this year, but he missed time during camp because of a knee injury.
