Matt Carufel to Transfer to Minnesota
Carufel participated in just 2:41 of playing time last season in a reserve role as a freshman.
Carufel attended Cretin-Derham Hall and was one of 18 linemen on the Parade Prep All-America team. He was selected USA Today second-team and was rated 56th on a list of top 100 prep players nationally by USA Today.
Carufel was Minnesota's Gatorade Player of the Year in 2005 and was selected for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl prep all-star game. The Raiders finished 10-3 in his senior season and lost 28-24 to Wayzata in the Minnesota Prep Bowl championship game.
Carufel was a three-year starter for the Raiders, where former Irish lineman Ryan Harris, tight end Marcus Freeman and 2005 fullback Rashon Powers-Neal attended.
Minnesota has Carufel's former teammate, Ned Tavale, on its roster and has commitments from Cretin seniors John Nance and Shady Salamon. Iowa has former Raider Rafuel Eubanks and Broderick Binns on its roster.
