I'm excited that recruiting is finally about to pick up and Gopher Football finally has a new verbal commit. Meet Josh Ballesteros, a linebacker from the Miami area. The kid is 6-4 and 210 lbs. This quote from Gopher Illustrated.
"Yes sir, I called and committed to Minnesota tonight. I am really excited and very proud to be a Gopher! We have been talking for about a month and they offered me about two and half weeks ago. As soon as that offer came I knew it was pretty much over. I wanted to be at Minnesota and that is where I am going to be."
