The Gophers continued adding big offensive linemen to their 2015 recruiting class Wednesday, when they landed a commitment from Quinn Oseland, a 6-6, 310-pound tackle from Springfield, Ill.

Oseland, a consensus three-star recruit, told GopherIllustrated.com that he had narrowed his choices down to Minnesota, Illinois and Oklahoma State. He also had reported offers along the way from Oregon, Michigan State and Mississippi State, among others.

Oseland is the Gophers’ 10th commitment for 2015, and the fourth offensive lineman, joining Red Wing’s Nick Connelly (6-7, 260 pounds) Chaska’s Bronson Dovich (6-5, 283) and Ted Stieber, from Akron, Ohio (6-6, 295).
