Minnesota waited until the final week before signing day to make their offer, but defensive tackle Yoshoub Timms was eager to accept it, according to Gopher Illustrated, a website that closely tracks Minnesota recruiting.
Timms, a 6-foot-2, 265-pound recruit from Fort Walton Beach in the Florida panhandle, accepted coach Jerry Kill's offer Sunday night, the rivals.com-affiliated site reported, making him the fifth defensive lineman known to have committed to Minnesota. Recruits can sign letters of intent beginning Wednesday.
Timms reportedly had several other schools pursuing him, including Syracuse and Southern Miss. He visited the Minneapolis campus last week, but left without a formal offer. When it came over the weekend, Timms accepted right away.
