The Gophers’ two-year streak of keeping Minnesota’s top-ranked football recruit at home will receive a stiff test this year in Rosemount offensive lineman Jacob Smith, who’s committed to Brigham Young University but has yet to sign his letter of intent. Then again, maybe the Gophers already have the top in-state player in the 2018 class; pundits are split on who the state’s best prospect really is. One choice is Eden Prairie cornerback Benjamin Sapp III.
After pledging to the Gophers in March, Georgia running back Nolan Edmonds announced Friday morning he is reopening his recruiting process. “After much consideration, I’ve decided to de-commit from the University of Minnesota in order to open my recruitment,” Edmonds tweeted. Edmonds, of Alpharetta, Ga., received an offer from Michigan State on June 14. The 5-foot-11 and 206-pounder also had offers from Louisville, California, Syracuse, Illinois, Purdue, Kansas and Boston College, among others.
The Gophers received an oral commitment from Bryce Williams, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound running back from Sarasota, Fla.Williams announced it Thursday night on Twitter. “I just wanna thank all the schools that gave me the opportunity to continue my dream at their institutions,” Williams wrote. “Also, my family and the coaches that built me into the man I am today.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
