Football or Basketball for Breck’s monster putting up 26 and 13? Right now that is unclear but Roddy did just attend Gopher junior day at the University of Minnesota for football.
“I just had a great visit to the University of Minnesota on Saturday as we were able to get a tour of the new Athlete’s Village,” 2019 Breck athlete David Roddy said to Prep Hoops. “Their new facilities is one of the best I’ve seen. I talked with most of the Gopher coaches, but I talked the most with coach Simon, and that’s my guy. He was the one who showed me around and things like that. He just said to keep doing what you’re doing, because they’re watching.”
“Coach Fleck and I talked as well, and he’s the exact same as you see on TV, as it’s a lot of energy and passion for Minnesota and his vision,” Roddy explained. “Coach Fleck’s message to me was just like coach Simon’s, in that to keep doing what I’m doing, and they want me to get to some camps over the summer. Things of that nature. Minnesota sees me as an athlete, no certain position right now.”
Roddy will likely be back on campus at Minnesota sooner than later.
“The Gophers staff said they would like me back here in the spring, and over the summer. From their camps, to just me and my teammates playing some catch. My dad and brother came with on the visit, and they thought it was great. My dad was amazed and mentioned how the U has clearly prioritized the care of their athletes, as the new Athletes Village is the premier training and living facility for student athletes in the country.
“Minnesota is a great place and I’m excited to see where they are in the future. They have good things in motion over there. I don’t have any visits coming up, but I’ll probably visit Iowa in the future when things settle down. I give all thanks to God and I’m thankful for my support group and everyone who has helped me and keeps helping me through this process.”
For basketball Roddy has offers from Northern Iowa and North Dakota but in football the interest at the highest level is heating up.
