The University of Minnesota has offered a scholarship to 6-7, 255-pound tight end Will Johnson of Osseo, Orioles head coach Derrin Lamker said in an e-mail Tuesday morning.

The Gophers also brought junior QB DJ Hebert from Osseo into Jerry Kill’s office on Saturday for a private conversation about playing either WR or DB for the Gophers, Lamker said.

Johnson had 14 catches last season, while Hebert threw for almost 1,800 yards and rushed for 460 more.
