P.J. Fleck and co. continue to rack up verbal commitments in June, which has traditionally been the busiest month of the year for the coaching staff on the recruiting trail. Florida athlete Aidan Gousby was one of a handful of recruits to pledge for the Minnesota Golden Gophers this weekend.

Gousby has played on both sides of the ball in high school, recording 13 tackles and an interception on defense and piling up 194 yards of total offense and two touchdowns in a seven-game season last year. He does not have much defensive film, so it is difficult to know what his strengths and weaknesses are as a cornerback, where he is expected to play at the college level. In fact, I believe most of his Power 5 offers were for him to play cornerback. As a wide receiver though, Gousby isn’t the fastest player on the field, but he makes up for that with quickness, agility, and good vision in traffic. There is also a physicality to his game, as he knows how to leverage his frame against defenders in tight coverage.
