The Gophers added an under-the-radar defensive end to their 2016 recruiting class Saturday, when Taiyon Devers, from the Georgia Prep Sports Academy, verbally committed to Minnesota.

He is reportedly scheduled to graduate from high school early so he can enroll at Minnesota in January and compete in spring practice. The Gophers now have 16 players committed for 2016.

Devers announced his commitment on Twitter:
