Some times when you send a player from the Southeast to Big 10 country the cold weather can be a distraction, but that wasn't the case this weekend for Jacksonville (Fla.) Wolfson three-star defensive end Rodney Gnat. The 6-foot-4, 224-pounder liked his time in the cold this weekend in Minnesota.
"There was snow up there, but it wasn't really cold," Gnat said. "It was still freezing cold, but it was a dull moist cold. It wasn't actually that bad. I could definitely get used it if I went there. I give the visit a solid eight."
For Gnat the trip to Minnesota was his second on the schedule.
"I spent a lot of time with the players," he said. "My host was Jamal Harris. He was really fun to be with. I would say after the visit that Louisville and Minnesota are my leaders."
Does one have the edge?
"The academics jumped out more to me at Louisville," Gnat said. "But the overall team chemistry and the players jumped out to me at Minnesota. That's why I'm going to take a few more visits before I decide."
Up next is Purdue for Gnat. He then hopes to visit USF and Florida A&M.
