     David Cobb, a running back and cornerback from Ellison High in Killeen, Texas, is the 23rd member of Jerry Kill's first class of recruits to Minnesota, the school announced Friday. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Cobb gained more than 1,400 yards on the ground, with 17 touchdowns, as a senior, earning all-district honors. He also is a two-year starter on the Ellison basketball team, according to the Gophers.
     Cobb joins defensive end Michael Amaefula of Arlington and wide receiver Quentin Gardener of Denton as Texans planning to enroll at Minnesota.
