What talents from the state of Minnesota do we think boosted their stock the most with the D2 level programs in the area?  Here is our group (and please read the opening note about D2s). 

Before we get into our five players, please note that being recruited with a full scholarship at the D2 level is not the "at least the D2s should be on him" that everybody thinks it is.  First of all, D1 programs have at least three more scholarships they can offer players than a D2 program and sometimes that number expands to 6-7 more.  Not all D2 programs in the NSIC for example can offer a full ten scholarships.  

Let me say that again, D2s can offer a full team of players at most ten scholarships.  And not only are high school players competing for that scholarship, or parts of it, against other top high school players, they are also competing against D1 transfers who are more experienced and often times simply better players. 

Almost every season there are more full scholarship D1 signed players in Minnesota than there are full d2 signed scholarship players.  Keep that in mind going forward when you are thinking about
