I’m sorting through notes from Big Ten football media days. Here are few tidbits from Gophers coach Jerry Kill:

• On running back Berkley Edwards giving up track to focus on football, and adding 10-12 pounds of muscle: “I think the big thing is to stay healthy. Berkley ran track and football, and his dad’s a good man. You don’t need to be 180 and worried about how fast you are. You’re fast enough. And so his dad did a good job with him when he went home for break, and he’s carrying a-buck-95, 200. He can already run, and so it’s just going to make him stronger at the point of attack. [Previously] he just gets barely tapped and he goes down. [Now] he can run physical and it’s going to make him a better player.”

• On Jerry Gibson, who previously practiced at wide receiver but has bulked up to 240 pounds and will be an H-back moving forward. “He’s athletic,” Kill said. “I just think he’s gone from high school, being a tailback, to H-back. When he’s playing there, he can stand up and go catch the ball. He’s an in-betweener; he needs to be like Maxx [Williams]. Maxx was only 235-40 when he first played.”
