Commitment of 4-star DL boosts Minnesota to top 25 ranking for 2021 recruiting class
Row the Boat!
Minnesota continues to be a program on the rise, turning a strong 2019 season into an impressive showing in recruiting. Following an 11-win campaign and bowl victory under head coach P.J. Fleck, the Gophers are now up to a top-25 recruiting class for 2021.
The latest recruit to join the fold is Jacob Schuster, a four-star defensive lineman out of Olympia, Washington. Listed at 6-foot-2 and 300 lbs., Schuster has the build to make the jump to the next level.
He announced his commitment via a video on his Twitter account:
