The Gophers added a potential impact player for next season Sunday, when they landed a commitment from junior college offensive lineman Vincent Calhoun.

The 6-4, 335-pound Calhoun is a sophomore at Southwest Mississippi Community College. He plans to enroll at Minnesota in January and will be a candidate to start at guard next season, when the Gophers will need to replace seniors Jon Christenson and Joe Bjorklund.

Calhoun, a consensus three-star recruit, also had reported offers from Colorado State, East Carolina and Southern Miss, among others.
