Among the signees are eleven in-state players: DB Ethan Carrier (Detroit Lakes), LB Alec Elliott (Hutchinson), OL Greg Johnson (Prior Lake), P Caleb McGrath (Eastview), S Gary Monroe (Shakopee), DL Martin Owusu (Prior Lake), TE Sam Peters (Maple Grove), DB Jackson Powers (Maple Grove), QB Max Shikenjanski (Stillwater), OL Reese Tripp (Kasson-Mantorville), Jerome Williams (Osseo).

Per Fleck, Williams is the highest-rated recruit in the class.

The other “prized recruit” is RB Darius Taylor from Walled Lake, Michigan. Also recruited by Michgan, Notre Dame, Wisconsin and others, Taylor is a four-star prospect with gaudy high school statistics.
