Backfield churn: One prep running back commits to Gophers, another decommits

One day after landing a running back recruit from Florida, the Gophers lost one from Georgia, as Nolan Edmonds announced Friday that he is decommitting from Minnesota.

Edmonds is a consensus three-star recruit from Alpharetta, Ga., who also has reported offers from Michigan State, Louisville and Illinois, among others. He announced his decommitment on Twitter.

On Thursday night, the Gophers received a verbal commitment from Bryce Williams, a consensus three-star recruit from Sarasota, Fla.

Gophers get running back to flip commitment from Bowling Green

The Gophers landed a verbal commitment Wednesday from Thomas Rush, a linebacker from Marysville, Ohio, who previously had committed to Bowling Green.

The 6-3, 209-pound Rush is ranked as two-star recruit by Rivals.com. But he had been listed as a running back and is now projected as a college linebacker.

In April, at the Nike Opening showcase in Cleveland, Rush ran the 40-yard dash in 4.71 seconds and was rated as the No. 5 overall player at that event.

P.J. Fleck and the Gophers coaching staff watched Rush perform at a satellite camp Tuesday night in Canton, Ohio before making their scholarship offer. Rush announced his commitment on Twitter.
