The Gophers lost a recruit to Arkansas on Monday, when Kyrei Fisher flipped his commitment to the Razorbacks.

Fisher credited family reasons and being “closer to home” as the main reasons to move on from the Gophers, but the 6-2, 230-pound linebacker from Tulsa, Okla., also said “there’s been a lot of stuff going on” at Minnesota, according to a Rivals.com story Monday.

Fisher added that he liked the Gophers coaches and the “top-of-the-line” facilities.

The Union High School standout, a consensus three-star recruit, committed to the Gophers in May. But his commitment to Minnesota appeared to be soft when he visited Texas earlier this month.
