Jimmy Gjere Gets Big Ten Interest
Gjere received a scholarship offer from Minnesota and attended their Elite camp and several Gopher games. He is also getting interest from Big Ten schools Iowa and Wisconsin. Gjere received a scholarship offer from the Badgers Nov. 10.
Gjere received several honors this season as he was named All-Metro by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Kare 11 Sports and was selected North Suburban Conference Lineman of the Year.
Gjere said that he is planning on several football camps this summer, despite a busy schedule as a baseball and hockey player.
"I am probably going to go to the Gopher camp again and probably do a few more camps around home," he said.
Gjere said that he does not have a current favorite.
"It's still early."
Gjere is playing defenseman for the Knights hockey team, which is off to a 2-1-1. He has one goal and one assist so far this season.
Gjere also plays high school baseball and hockey. Irondale baseball coach Chris Fink previously told GoldenSports.Net that Gjere has excellent potential as a baseball player.
"He had a fantastic summer playing for our 16-and-under team. He is one of the best up-and-coming players. He is a pitcher, but he can also really hit a baseball," Fink said.
