P.J. Fleck flips Oregon CB commit to Minnesota
It’s one thing to get a Western Michigan recruit to flip his commitment to Minnesota. P.J. Fleck has done plenty of that since he got to the Twin Cities eight days ago.
It’s another thing to get an Oregon recruit to flip his commitment to Minnesota. Fleck did that on Saturday.

Douglas had been committed to Oregon since July. The Portland, Ore. recruit had an offer from Notre Dame and was set to host the Irish coaches on Sunday.
But instead, Douglas will follow in his dad’s footsteps at Minnesota. Douglas’ dad, Omar, was a star at Minnesota in the early 90s before having a brief NFL career.
The No. 73 cornerback and No. 744 player overall, Douglas is the highest-rated defensive player in Minnesota’s 2017 class.
The Gophers are now up to 22 total commitments for their incoming class, 13 of whom committed since Fleck came to Minnesota.
