This is Amelia Rayno's third season on the Gophers men's basketball beat. She learned college basketball in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!), where fanhood is not an option. In 2010, she joined the Star Tribune after graduating from Boston's Emerson College, which sadly had no exciting D-I college hoops to latch onto. Amelia has also worked on the sports desk at the Boston Globe and interned at the Detroit News.

Cameron Forte, a junior college recruit the Gophers had their eye on, has committed to the University of Georgia.

Forte tweeted the news on Sunday afternoon:

Forte, a 6-6 forward, who had also drawn interest from Long Beach State, Colorado State, Pittsburgh and Ole Miss, among others is currently attending Howard College (Texas) and has three years of eligibility left.

A University of Minnesota source confirmed that the Gophers had reached out to Forte. Richard Pitino had first offered the athletic Arizona native at Florida International.

The Gophers still have three scholarships available for 2013-14 after getting a single commitment from Daquein McNeil last week.
