Spencer Ohm, Da'Jon McKnight And Others Participate In Vikings Rookie Camp

The Minnesota Vikings rookie minicap took place this past weekend. Several players with local connections were invited to participate on a tryout basis.

Blooming Prarie's Spencer Ohm was one of the 39 players that were trying out for the team out of the 70 players total at the camp. Ohm spent four years at quarterback for the St. Paul-based Concordia University. After breaking his foot at the beginning of the 2011 season, Ohm returned for his team's final six games, passing for 1,771 yards and 17 touchdowns.

"I looked at it as an opportunity to get my feet wet, and I felt my skills were right with those guys," Ohm said. "I think I'll have a good chance to get to a (training) camp or at least get another tryout with some team." (Via: TwinCities.com)

Ohm will find out in a few days whether he will be invited back to the Viking's training camp.

Also trying out for the Vikings were several former Minnesota Golden Gophers. Wide receiver Da'Jon McKnight, defensive linemen Brandon Kirksey and Anthony Jacobs, along with tight ends Nick Tow-Arnett and Tiree Eure all participated in the weekend rookie camp. According to this report, Jacobs was used at defensive line and on special teams. Like, Ohm, the group of Gophers will likely hear back from the Vikings this week.
