Post The Gophers' first Brew crew 
National letter of intent day has come and gone and while the Gophers let a few get away, they saved more recruits than many expected, given the relatively short timetable Gophers head coach Punky Brewster was given to work with.

One notable recruit who wouldn't have come here otherwise is Brewster's own son, Clint, ranked by RIVALS as the eighth-best QB in the nation. He's a blue-chipper and possibly the best QB the Gophers have recruited in years, if not decades. Probably the best since Tony Dungy was under center for the maroon and gold.

The arrival of Clint, though, meant two other QB recruits are likely headed elsewhere; however, since they weren't as highly-rated as Clint, it's probably not a problem.

Coach Brewster also grabbed some recruits that were headed elsewhere until he spoke with them. WR Harold Howell of Jacksonville, FL, is a great catch. Duane Bennett, a RB from Illinois, is also considered a top-notch recruit. Most notably, the recruiting class Mason had assembled ranked last the in 11-team Big 10 when Brewster came on board, and with his efforts adding more players to the mix, that ranking improved to ninth in the Big 10 - not bad, considering he had about three weeks in which to pull it off.

So, with 22 new recruits now in the market for a loft bed for their on-campus dorm rooms, I'd have to say that Brewster's rep as a recruiter is well-earned so far. Let's hope he can translate the talent he's bringing onto campus into a team that wins more often.
