GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - UND's Dominique Hawkins left Grand Forks for the Twin Cities with the goal of getting a contract with the Minnesota Vikings.

After working out for scouts in Fargo and Minneapolis, the four-year starter at defensive back has been invited to the Vikings' rookie mini-camp this weekend.

Hawkins has been a vikings fan since he grew up in suburban Minneapolis. He says he'll give it his best shot.

Hawkins will be joined in Eden Prairie by two of his former Sioux teammates. Linebacker Ross Cochran and running back Josh Murray have also been invited. Murray played last season at U-Mary in Bismarck.
