Since Martin&#39;s commitment back in September, Minnesota has added five more recruits. Martin will be joined by fellow newcomers Nate Mason, Bakary Konate, Gaston Diedhiou, junior college guard Carlos Morris and Illinois State transfer Zach Lofton.</p> <p>It&#39;s a rarity to have six players in one recruiting class, but Martin said he prefers it.</p> <a href="http://www.mndaily.com/blogs/upon-further-review">Upon Further Review</a><p><a href="http://www.mndaily.com/blogs/upon-further-review/2014/04/24/josh-martin-gophers-six-man-recruiting-class-were-going-be-able" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Upon Further Review Thu, 24 Apr 2014 22:48:51 +0000 jfrederick@mndaily.com 86562 at http://www.mndaily.com University’s nanotech building to host open house http://www.mndaily.com/blogs/newsstand/2014/04/23/university%E2%80%99s-nanotech-building-host-open-house By: <a href="/users/ktiguemndailycom" title="View User Profile">Kristoffer Tigue</a><br/> <p>Three years and $85 million dollars later, the University of Minnesota&rsquo;s Physics and Nanotechnology building is almost fully moved in.
