The Gophers are one of three schools to get an official visit scheduled with three-star Lakeland (Fla.) power forward Luke Anderson.
Anderson planned his trip to Minnesota for Sept. 7-9. The 6-foot-8, 215-pound senior will also visit Iowa State from Aug. 31-Sept. 2 and Georgia from Sept. 14-16.
“I like the coaching staff,” Anderson said Thursday about the Gophers. “I want to see everything there like academics and athletics. They said I'm a position-less player, which would be perfect for their system.”
Gophers coach Richard Pitino offered Anderson a scholarship in late July after he and assistant Kyle Lindsted watched Team Knight play at the Adidas Summer Championship in Orange County. Anderson averaged nearly 10 points and four rebounds a game for Team Knight in the Adidas Gauntlet circuit this summer.
Pitino also offered Anderson's AAU teammate Toumani Camara, a 6-6 senior small forward from Belgium.
The only other Class of 2019 prospect to schedule an official visit so far is Sunrise Christian Academy four-star guard Austin Crowley, who is expected to see Minnesota on Aug. 30.
