Happy Spring Game Saturday everyone! Minnesota's 2017 recruiting class has it's first commit and it's an extremely important one. 3 star offensive tackle (and top ranked recruit for the state of Minnesota) Blaise Andries has verbally committed to the Gophers!
Blaise chose the Gophers over a huge list of Power 5 programs, including Big Ten foes Michigan State, Nebraska, Northwestern, and Penn State as well as teams like Florida, Miami, Oregon, and TCU. This is a HUGE get for the Gophers and one that everyone should be very excited about.
Blaise is a composite 3 star recruit, ranked #1 in the state of Minnesota, #35 for all offensive tackles in the US, and #316 overall according to 247. GN will have more on Blaise's committment and what it means, but for now let this serve as a great warmup to get you excited for today's Spring Game!
