Minnesota loses commitment from Florida DB
Minnesota’ 2020 recruiting class shrunk just a little bit on Wednesday.
Three-star cornerback and Florida native Benjamin Onwuzo announced his decision to decommit from Minnesota on Wednesday. He will be re-opening his recruitment for a chance to play college football elsewhere. He made the announcement public via Twitter.
“First I’d like to thank the man above because without him, nothing would be possible,” Onwuzo wrote. “But after much prayer and guidance from my famuly, I’ve decided that I will be decommitting from the University of Minnesota and re-open my recruitment to all schools. Nothing but love for the Gopher family.”

Onwuzo is a 5-foot-11, 185-pound cornerback from Hollywood, Florida. He’s ranked just outside of the top 150 players from his home state and is one of the top 100 players at his position in the 2020 cycle.
According to 247Sports, Onwuzo has received offers from 22 programs. He’s received offers from multiple B1G schools, including Indiana, Nebraska, Purdue and Rutgers.
Minnesota now has 22 prospects verbally committed in the 2020 recruiting class, ranking ninth in the B1G and 33rd nationally.
