The Gophers received some big news on the morning of Saturday's spring game, as a highly coveted recruit committed to Minnesota.

Blaise Andries, a 6-6, 290-pound offensive lineman from Marshall, Minn., announced on Twitter that he will stick with his in-state school.

Andries had reported offers from Michigan State, Oklahoma, Oregon, TCU, Nebraska, Missouri, Penn State, Arkansas, Florida among others.

Andries is actually the first player to commit to the Gophers for the Class of 2017, but he's certainly a big one.

Note: Hall of Famer Tony Dungy is scheduled to address the Gophers before today's spring game.

Here is Andries' announcement:
