The Gophers landed a commitment Thursday from Tony Poljan, a 6-6, dual-threat quarterback from Lansing (Mich.) Catholic High School.
Poljan is a consensus three-star recruit who also had reported offers from Toledo, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan.
Poljan completed 65.0 percent of his passes last year as a junior, throwing for 2,802 yards and 34 touchdowns, and rushing for 1,017 yards and 22 touchdowns. He helped lead Lansing Catholic to the Division 5 state finals. He was a first-team all-state selection and also an honorable mention all-state basketball player.
Here are Poljan's junior highlights from Hudl:
Poljan announced news of his commitment on Twitter:
Megan Ryan is a sports reporter at the Star Tribune covering college sports, including Gophers football and hockey. Ryan covered Minnesota United FC during its first two years of existence. She previously spent two years at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette covering Penn State football, Robert Morris basketball and high school sports. Email Megan to talk about the Gophers.
Offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca called Gophers coach P.J. Fleck late one night in January to tell him he was taking a job in West Virginia. A few hours later, they talked again. Fleck told what happened.
