Minnesota Football Recruiting: Three-star WR Kenric Lanier commits to the Gophers

The Gophers have flipped a commitment from Vanderbilt

With National Signing Day only days away, head coach P.J. Fleck and co. are hard at work putting the finishing touches on their recruiting class. The latest to grab an oar is Georgia wide receiver prospect Kenric Lanier, who was on campus over the weekend for an official visit.

He was previously committed to Vanderbilt.

Lanier will wrap up his prep career in San Antonio in January at the Army All-American Bowl.

Scouting Report

As a high school senior, Lanier caught 64 passes for 1,156 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. He is a smooth and decisive route runner with good burst off the line of scrimmage and acceleration coming out of his breaks, capable of lining up in the slot and on the outside. What stands out most about Lanier on film is his ability to come down with contested catches. He tracks the ball well down the field and knows how to use his length to fight through traffic and make catches away from his body, often making the effort to attack the ball at its highest point. Lanier is also a track athlete, so he has the speed to take the top off the defense.
