The only thing better than winning a game on Saturday is winning and then getting a recruiting commitment on Sunday!
I can confirm that #Minnesota received a commitment from JUCO OL Vincent Calhoun. HUGE impact guy on the OL in 2016. pic.twitter.com/jrpMzUK0nE— Ryan Burns (@RyanBurnsMN) September 13, 2015
Calhoun is a composite 3-star JUCO recruit with offers from Minnesota and a slew of non-P5 schools (including recent opponent Colorado State). During his visit to Minnesota in June, Vincent talked to Gopher Illustrated ($) about his conversations with the coaching staff:
"Coach Limegrover told me that they're only taking one JUCO offensive lineman and that I'm the guy they want," Calhoun told GopherDigest. "He said that they think I can come in and compete right away next year and that I'd be a great fit for what they want to do. Coach Kill was with me my entire visit and he was always asking me if I had any questions he could answer, but honestly all the coaches did a great job of keeping me informed to where I feel very comfortable with everything Minnesota has to offer.
As always, Matt will go more in depth with his Scroll of the Sworn. In the meantime, welcome to Vincent!
