The Minnesota coaching staff has found another #RTB player at one of their satellite camps! Earlier this morning linebacker Thomas Rush officially committed to Coach Fleck and Co.

Get to know Thomas Rush

  • Height: 6’3”
  • Weight: 209 lbs
  • Other Offers: Bowling Green, Brown, Dartmouth, Western Illinois

Rush was previous a hard commit to Bowling Green as a running back, but he flipped to play linebacker for the Gophers after receiving an offer at camp yesterday.

Thomas is from Marysville, OH and is currently a 3 star recruit rated at .8405 in the 247 composite rankings. He’s also an extremely athletic kid, based on his Nike Sparq scores:

How athletic is he? Well, he’s athletic enough to get 247’s national recruiting guy to drop phrases like this on Twitter...

That certainly sounds exciting, and given that the offer was extended after seeing Rush in person you know the coaches saw something they liked. Add in the fact that he has offers from two different Ivy League programs and you gotta like this commit.
