Kadyn Betts will be arriving on campus even sooner than expected for Minnesota basketball.

Originally committed to the Gophers via the 2023 recruiting class, the 6-foot-8 small forward out of Colorado announced Monday that he is reclassifying to the class of 2022. Betts becomes the 5th piece of Minnesota’s 2022 recruiting class for head coach Ben Johnson.

“I would like to thank my family, coaches and everyone that has helped me on this journey,” Betts wrote via social media. “Without your support, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I’m beyond blessed and excited to announce that I am forgoing my senior year of high school, and will be attending the University of Minnesota this fall.”

“We are extremely excited to add Kadyn Betts to our 2022-23 Gopher roster,” Johnson said via press release. “Kadyn comes from a great basketball family. I love his high academic background along with his contagious passion and energy for Gopher Basketball. He has a great skill set with an ability to really shoot the basketball. I love his size and versatility he will bring to our wing position and I look forward to developing him both on and off the court.”
