Head coach P.J. Fleck won’t sign the Class of 2020 until December of next year, but that hasn’t stopped 2020 in-state wide receiver Jonathan Mann from rowing the boat. The Rosemount product has committed to play for the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
He is the Gophers’ first commitment for the Class of 2020.

Not all of the recruiting sites have had a chance to evaluate Mann, so he does not yet have a 247 Composite Rating, but 247 Sports considers him a three-star prospect and the 58th-ranked wide receiver for his recruiting class. Mann is currently a top 300 prospect nationally. He is also the third-ranked prospect in the state of Minnesota — behind dual-threat quarterback Jalen Suggs and linebacker Kaden Johnson — according to 247.
Scouting Report from 247 Sports’ Allen Trieu ($):
He is going to be a physically imposing college receiver. He eats up ground fairly quickly. He gets off the ball well, has a long stride, and can get downfield. He shows solid run after the catch ability. He may not elude defenders like a smaller guy, but he knows how to run away from tacklers and get to open field.
High School Career
Mann played quarterback as a freshman at Rosemount High School, before switching to wide receiver last season. As a sophomore, he recorded 30 receptions for 662 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
