The Gophers football team landed another junior college lineman Monday, when JimmieTerry, an offensive tackle from Tyler (Texas) Junior College, announced his verbal commitment.
The 6-4, 330-pound Terry is a consensus three-star recruit who began his college career at Louisville, redshirting in 2014, before transferring to junior college with plans to land with another major college program. He also had reported offers from East Carolina and Southern Miss.
Terry, who went to high school in Madison, Miss., is the Gophers’ 16th commitment for the Class of 2017. That list includes two other potential junior college transfers — quarterback Neil McLaurin and safety Jaquarius Landrews.
The Gophers signed three junior college offensive linemen in their 2016 class — Vincent Calhoun, Garrison Wright and Donnell Greene — and all three have played starting roles this season.
