Jake Paulson, a tight end from Kentucky, commits to Gophers

The Gophers landed a verbal commitment Wednesday from Jake Paulson, a tight end who ranks as the second best overall recruit in Kentucky, by 247Sports.com.

The 6-5, 245-pound Paulson also had reported offers from Louisville, Pittsburgh, Illinois and Purdue.

The Gophers now have 22 players committed in this class, with 11 of those coming since P.J. Fleck was named coach on Friday. 

Fleck tabs Ohio State's Warinner as Gophers O-line coach

P.J. Fleck has picked Ohio State’s Ed Warinner to be the Gophers next offensive line coach, a Gophers source confirmed Tuesday. The news was first reported by Sports Illustrated’s Pete Thamel.

Warinner, 55, worked as Ohio State’s offensive coordinator/tight ends coach this past season, but Ohio State hired former Indiana coach Kevin Wilson to fill those roles Tuesday. Warinner had previously been the Buckeyes’ offensive coordinator/offensive line coach.

Warinner has also coached the offensive line at Notre Dame, Kansas, Illinois, Army and Air Force. Some of his honors include 2014 FootballScoop offensive line coach of the year, and 2014 Rivals.com Top 25 recruiter.
