It looks like an official announcement welcoming JUCO Dre Mathieu to the Minnesota hoops family is just around the corner.
The 5-11 Mathieu, who visited the Minneapolis campus last weekend, said on Monday via text message that he would be making his decision on Tuesday -- choosing between Minnesota, Ole Miss and Pepperdine, his last three schools after eliminating Memphis. A teammate at Central Arizona, Calvin Bonner, tweeted late Tuesday morning that Mathieu had chosen the Gophers.
The committment would give Minnesota a true point guard and a plethora of options at that position between Andre Hollins, McNeil and Maverick Ahanmisi.
The Gophers still have two remaining scholarships available for next year.
