2015: Lot to Like About Hart

National Recruiting Analyst
Posted Jul 12, 2013

Prior Lake (Minn.) rising junior linebacker Alex Hart has production, size and athletic bloodlines all on his side, and college coaches are taking notice.

Alex Hart's resume reads like a blueprint for being a highly recruited player. He has the size at 6'2, 210-pounds coming out of his sophomore year. He has a 3.68 grade point average, a wrestling background and a highly productive season under his belt after making All-Conference honors.

This summer, he looked to back up those accomplishments on the camp circuit and had a successful time doing that.

"So Far this summer I have attended camps at the University of Iowa, Northern Iowa, and will be attending Iowa State next week as well as the Gopher junior elite camp. I was the Linebacker MVP at the National Underclassman Combine in May and have been invited to the Elite National Combines as well."

Hart says heading to Iowa was a good experience and he established a relationship with the coaching staff.

"I enjoyed the Iowa Camp. The facilities and the coaches were great. I performed well. It was good to work with some of the linebacker coaches. I got to meet coach Kirk Ferentz and he thanked me for coming."

Minnesota is a program who will be very involved in his recruitment, as Hart has several family ties to the program.

"My brother Nick is a tight end for the Gophers. My parents were also both athletes at the U of M (father Pat played football and mother Nancy was a swimmer) and I have to say the Gophers have been showing the most interest at this point. I have had the opportunity to get to know some of the coaches, watch some practices and I like what the program has to offer."

He still has to camp with the school next week, but the early returns Hart has gotten from Minnesota suggest good things lie ahead.

"The Gopher Coaches have said some very positive things to me, my coach and my family when we've been on campus. The say they really like what they have seen so far and are excited to see my progress. They say they would really would like to get me on the team with my brother."

As a sophomore last year, Hart finished with 51 Tackles (18 solo), one forced fumble and one interception.
