The main benefit, Kill said, is that players will have two long strength-and-conditioning windows — one before and another after spring practice — as opposed to one.
Early enrollees coming
Two players from the 2014 recruiting class are scheduled to begin classes at the university this month, allowing them to compete in spring practice.
They are linebacker Cody Poock, a transfer from Iowa Western Community College, and quarterback Dimonic McKinzy from Kansas City (Mo.) Wyandotte High School.
McKinzy, who committed last spring, will be the fourth quarterback to enroll early at Minnesota under Kill.
Nelson and Mitch Leidner did that in 2012, and Chris Streveler did it last year before redshirting.
Streveler, of Crystal Lake, Ill., had hand surgery during the season but should be ready for spring practice.
