Recruiting is a 24/7 sport in and of itself. And on Friday, Dec. 13, Minnesota appears to have lost a verbal commitment from a recruit that was slated to be a part of the Golden Gophers’ 2020 recruiting class.

Claude Larkins is a defensive end that committed on June 15, 2019. He was ready to be a part of Minnesota’s 2020 class.

However, as of Friday afternoon, Larkins is no longer seen on 247Sports’ list of Minnesota’s 2020 commitments. Larkins is a three-star defensive end from Hollywood, Fla. with scholarship offers from Michigan, Purdue, Indiana, UCF and others.
