Gophers coach Jerry Kill secured several local players as preferred walk-ons for his 2013 class, but only gave a scholarship to Wayzata linebacker Chris Wipson -- Cretin-Derham Hall's Hames Onwualu (Notre Dame), Tartan's Keelon Brookins (Wisconsin), and Cooper's Malik Rucker (Iowa) all said no.

We were at Wayzata high school on Wednesday morning for the signing day ceremony, so click on the video box above to hear from Wipson and see video of him before he tore his ACL in a playoff game (his rehab is going well and he expects to be on the field for Fall practice)
