November 29, 2013 — 1:29pm
The Gophers added another recruit to their commitment list Friday, in Jerry Gibson, a 6-4, 220-pound athlete from Theodore, Ala., according to the recruiting site GopherIllustrated.com.
Gibson could play wide receiver, tight end, running back or perhaps even defense in college. He is rated as a two-star recruit by Rivals.com, which lists Northern Illinois and Louisiana Tech among Gibson's other offers.
He is the 10th player in the 2014 class to give the Gophers a verbal commitment.
Randy Johnson has been covering college football in one form or another since the early 1990s. He was the Star Tribune’s main college football editor on the copy desk for nearly two decades before returning to reporting in August 2017 as the beat writer for Gophers football. Randy has covered a Rose Bowl (Joe Paterno’s 1994 Penn State team), and he covered a John Gutekunst-coached Gophers team that missed out on the 1990 Weed-Eater Bowl. Email Randy to talk about the Gophers.
IMG Academy teammates Curtis Dunlap, a 6-4, 368-pound, four-star guard, and Daniel Faalele, a 6-9, 400-pound, three-star tackle, both gave verbal commitments to Minnesota during their official visit Saturday.
