Football signing day is Wednesday

High-school seniors will be signing football letters of intent with colleges Wednesday, and Minnesota State is expected to get more than 20 kids. Already, the Mavericks have gotten commitments from Mankato West lineman Colby Straka and Mankato East running back Kenthen King, both of whom will surely be redshirted next season. If you believe Division II message boards, the Mavericks have gotten commitments from some big linemen in Wisconsin, which makes sense because four of five starting lineman last season were seniors.
It's going to be interesting to see if coach Todd Hoffner brings in a quarterback, either a high-schooler or transfer. Steve Pachan got a lot of experience last season, but Cody Rose and Ray Teachout, who played at Mankato West and redshirted last season, are the inexperienced backups.
Hoffner seemed pretty pleased with his recruiting last week,
The university is hosting a signing-day gathering Wednesday at the Loose Moose Saloon, beginning at 5 p.m.
