Random Stuff: Bo Ryan Snags A Minnesota Recruit...

... For his 2009 class. But at least the recruit wasn't named Royce White. Instead, Ryan received a verbal commitment from Mike Bruesewitz, a 6'7 forward from Henry Sibley High School. According to The Capital Times, Bruesewitz had offers from Minnesota, Purdue, Davidson, Washington State, Iowa, Valparasio and Montana.

Bruesewitz is a three-star Rivals prospect. Without knowing how actively Tubby Smith was recruiting Buresewitz, it's hard to really work up a lather about this. It'd be nice if Bo Ryan never signed a Minnesota kid again, but that's just not going to happen. But Tubby's 2009 class will be defined by landing or losing Royce White.

That reminds me. If you like following Minnesota high school hoops, a good blog to check out is TCHoops. The blogger gives his observations after watching Royce and DeLaSalle face off against Brooklyn Center.

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR: Names are emerging in the sweepstakes to replace Everett Withers. The STrib's Chip Scoggins mentioned University of Louisville Cardinals Linebackers Coach Ted Roof came into Minneapolis to interview for the position Tuesday. Roof only signed on with the Cardinals a month or so ago, after an understandably rough stint as the head man at Duke. Such is the unfortunate nature of college coaching. The Louisville Courier-Journal picks up on Roof's interest in Minnesota in a blog post here.

Here is a bio of Roof from his days at Duke.

Scoggins had previously mentioned former Nebraska coordinator Kevin Cosgrove could be a candidate, but now Scoggins says that doesn't appear likely.

Other names that have been mentioned are Tim Tibesar, Kansas State's Defensive Coordinator. Tibesar is a St. Paul native. Rivals mentions Tibesar, as well as UCLA DC DeWayne Walker, a former Gopher, as possibilities. But the consensus at this point is Roof is the favorite.

KEEPING TABS: Devron Bostick's highly ranked SWIC Blue Storm are in a bit of a free fall. After sporting a 23-1 record just one week ago, the Blue Storm lost fot he third straight outing Monday. But it wasn't because Bostick didn't show up. He led the Blue Storm with 24 points.

COMING UP: The Gophers face Michigan tomorrow at Williams Arena during the first leg of a two game homestand that needs to turn into two wins. I'm not going to preview the Michigan game because it's Michigan, and despite the fact that they just upset Ohio State, the Gophers trounced the Wolverines a few weeks back in Ann Arbor and really ought to be able to do the same Thursday night.

Brusewitz is a nice player, but unless he really has taken a huge step at Sibley this season, I don't think we need to worry about letting this one guy.

He played his varsity ball at Litchfield a season ago, making my Hutchinson Leader All-Area Team, but he was not Jon Leuer-like, or Kammran Taylor-like. I always expected him to go to a small D1 college like Matt Janning did at Northeastern.
