Minnesota Golden Gopher head coach Jerry Kill wants guys with the right the character, attitude and passion. He also wants good football players that fit his system.
The Minnesota Golden Gopher football team signed 19 players on National Signing Day that the coaching staff hopes will fit those traits over their remaining eligibility.
Here is one of those recruits; quarterback Chris Streveler.
High School: Marian Central Catholic (Ill.)
Hometown: Crystal Lake, Ill.
My analysis: Limited viewing - very good athlete - makes defenders miss - is always moving his feet - accurate arm downfield, but the ball hangs in the air a long time - moves around within the pocket and is always looking downfield.
ESPN's analysis: Very good looking kid athletically - pocket passer with deceptively good speed and feet to be a threat on the run - has good height and is well built with the frame to continue to fill out and develop physically - footwork is consistent and quick - good athlete that is effective throwing from the pocket or on the move - has presence to find receivers when he has to roll out - he is a playmaker and can make a play when the pocket collapses.
