Joppru gaining interest from Division I schools
Joppru is the brother of former Michigan Wolverines standout tight end Ben Joppru, who spent last season with the Houston Texans.
Joppru said he has heard from Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Central Florida, Wyoming and Ball State.
Joppru hopes to improve his stock by attending camps this summer. He might also get some looks at defensive end next season, he said.
"I think I'm going to go to Michigan and I might go to Minnesota," said Joppru, talking about the camps he is considering attending. "Michigan (is my early favorite) because of my brother. Minnesota is up there too."
Minnetonka coach Dave Nelson, who has coached numerous Division I players in his high school coaching career, including Gopher recruit Steve Moore when Nelson was at Blaine, said Joppru has the talent and ability to be a Division I prospect, but must continue to improve.
"He has great tools but must get bigger and stronger," said Nelson. "He is a tremendous athlete with great hands."
Stay tuned to GoldenSports.net for more information on Joppru and other Gophers recruits.
