Theorin Randle is a 6-foot-1, 282-pound defensive lineman from the Houston area. The 3-star recruit originally committed to Washington State on July 6.

However, Minnesota found itself in pursuit of the Texan. The Golden Gophers extended an offer on Sep. 9, and Randle ultimately de-committed from Washington State on Oct. 27. Weeks later, he found himself in Minneapolis for an official visit, and on Sunday, he announced that he had committed to the program:

Randle currently has 30 tackles, 7.0 tackles for a loss, 2 sacks, and 10 quarterback hurries in his senior season at Pearland (Tex.) Shadow Creek High School. The Sharks are 11-1 but saw their season come to an end in the state playoffs on Friday.

Randle’s pledge is the 17th for the Golden Gophers in the 2023 recruiting class. It currently ranks 9th among all B1G teams.
