P.J. Fleck added an influx of talent to future Gophers rosters on Saturday, getting commitments from three recruits and a transfer from Florida.
Chris Williamson, a cornerback who played nine games for the Gators last year, including one start, announced via Twitter that he is transferring to Minnesota. He will have to sit out this fall but will be eligible to play for the Gophers in 2018 and 2019.
Williamson is the second SEC player to transfer to the Gophers this week, joining O.J. Smith, a defensive tackle from Alabama, who will also be eligible in 2018.
Besides the transfer news, Fleck added three commitments for the Class of 2018 – running back Nolan Edmonds and offensive tackles Jack York and Grant Norton.
Edmonds, a three-star recruit from Alpharetta, Ga., committed to the Gophers earlier this year before de-committing after a visit to Michigan State. He is now back in the fold.
The 6-5, 270-pound York is a consensus three-star recruit from Dallas First Baptist Academy, who committed to San Diego State last month before flipping to Minnesota.
The 6-8, 255-pound Norton, from Camdenton, Mo., also had reported offers from Purdue and Wyoming, among others.
All the players announced their decisions via Twitter, giving the Gophers 22 commitments in this class.
