Minnesota adds 2023 commitment from LB out of Chicago
Minnesota landed another piece to the 2023 recruiting class, picking up a commitment from a linebacker out of Chicago Sunday evening.
The player is Matt Kingsbury, a 6-foot-3 and 235 lb. LB out of St. Rita High School in Chicago, Illinois. Though unrated by the composite rankings, 247Sports rates Kingsbury as the No. 116 LB nationally for the cycle.
Kingsbury held offers from Ball State, Eastern Michigan, Purdue, Utah State, Western Michigan and others at the time of his commitment.

Minnesota worked quickly to land Kingsbury’s commitment ahead of the Early Signing Period. After hosting Kingsbury for a visit on Friday, the Gophers offered a scholarship that was accepted Sunday.
