Daquein McNeil officially signed with the Gophers, the University of Minnesota announced on Tuesday.

McNeil committed to Minnesota last week. The 6-3 guard had previously committed to new Gophers coach Richard Pitino, when he was at Florida International.

"Daquein McNeil is an exciting player that affects the game on both ends of the court," Pitino said in a release. "He is an active guard that has a knack of getting into the lane, but also plays hard on the defensive end. He will be a great fit in our full court style of play."

The Baltimore native averaged 19 points a game this season at Vermont Academy.
