Class of 2014 recruit Gaelin Elmore of Somerset, Wisc. will reportedly sign with the Gophers, according to ESPN.
Elmore had offers from Iowa State, Michigan State, Nebraska and Wisconsin in addition to Minnesota. And despite making recent visits to Michigan State and Ohio State, the three-star tight end from across the river will suit up for Jerry Kill’s Gophers in the fall.
At 6-foot-5 and 243 pounds, Elmore runs a 4.9 40-yard-dash and will be a solid addition to Kill’s roster. He is the third best recruit in Wisconsin, according to Rivals, and the whiff by the Badgers makes this signing even sweeter for Gopher fans.
Elmore is Minnesota’s fourth commitment of the 2014 recruiting class.

- Following a disappointing freshman season the former No. 1 prep player in Minnesota, receiver Andre McDonald, may be able to return to the Gophers, according to Jerry Kill. McDonald managed only eight catches in his first season. He was also suspended from the Meineke Car Care Bowl for violating team policies.
- Former Gopher and Eden Prairie High School graduate Nick Leddy of the Chicago Blackhawks will take the ice against the Boston Bruins in game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals Monday night.
