On Wednesday, SM Northwest's Drew Goodger (left)made a verbal commitment to play football at the University of Minnesota under new head coach Jerry Kill. Goodger chose the Golden Gophers over offers from Northern Illinois and Western Michigan. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Goodger wreaked havoc on the Sunflower League during the 2010 season, claiming All-League, All-Metro, and All-State honors. During the season he recorded 103 tackles, 28 tackles for loss and four sacks, in addition to forcing seven fumbles.
Goodger joins Olathe North's Victor Simmons and Adonis Saunders as Sunflower League seniors who have committed to play football at division one schools next year.
