Waters Becomes Golden

The Gophers have been on a hot streak by landing their third commit in the past three days with the latest coming from Copperas Cove (TX.) senior middle linebacker Jaylen Waters.

Minnesota added their ninth commitment on Monday when Copperas Cove (TX.) senior middle linebacker Jaylen Waters pledged to become a Gopher. He came in on unofficial to Minneapolis this past weekend for their BBQ recruiting and really enjoyed himself.

The 6-1, 230-pound athletic linebacker runs a 4.5 forty time and will fit perfectly into what the Gophers like to do on defense. With his recruitment, he held offers from Nevada and Texas State along with hearing from Baylor, TCU, Texas A&M and Texas Tech.

Below is his announcement he made that he was committing to Minnesota via Twitter:

He is the second linebacker commit in this class joining Bolingbrook (IL.) senior outside linebacker Julian Huff. Minnesota in this class has commitments from five states and Canada now. They are going far and wide to find the talent and it is paying off by picking up their three commits in a 3 day span.
