Any sense for where things stand with Boden Kapke (sp?)?

I saw a post from a Minnesota fan on another board stating that the Gophers have backed off Kapke for some reason and I think the Iowa staff may have as well.

His recent offers have come from less successful programs like Butler, Boston College and Clemson. It seems like the schools who originally offered him may have found other prospects they like better.

To add, I believe he's also set up a second visit with Clemson for the fall. Wouldn't be surprised at all that's where he lands.

I think the commitment to Clemson by Asa Thomas is a sign his stock really fell also. You don’t jump at an offer from a coach who will likely be gone after this season if you have a lot of good options.

He might not be the guy we need/want.....but damn, I would really like to see the staff get a pipeline started to the Minnesota HS talent.....lots and lots of talent there.

Former targets Matas Buzelis, Taylor Bowen and Gavin Griffiths are the studs for Expressions. I really don’t think it’s Buzelis, but maybe Bowen or Griffiths are reconsidering their commitment.
Or Iowa is making sure that if they do have a change of heart, Iowa will still be there.
