Three-star DT withdraws pledge from Minnesota less than one month after committing
Less than a month after verbally committing to Minnesota, three-star defensive tackle Albert Regis will be reconsidering his options.
On Monday, Regis announced with a tweet that he will be decommitting from Minnesota. His decision to withdraw his pledge from the program drops the Golden Gophers down to 17 members in its 2021 recruiting class, which still ranks ninth nationally and third in the B1G, behind Ohio State and Michigan.
“Thankful for the Minnesota staff for all the love I’ve received, I just want to announce that I’ll be decommitting from the University of Minnesota,” Regis wrote. “Please respect my decision.”

Regis is a 6-foot-1, 295-pound defensive tackle out of La Porte, Texas. He has received several FBS offers on the recruiting trail, including Baylor, Illinois, TCU, Tennessee, Texas Tech and Virginia Tech.
He initially gave his pledge to Minnesota on April 29.
Per 247Sports, Regis ranks as the No. 475 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle. He’s the No. 32 defensive tackle and No. 65 player from the state of Texas. It’s unclear whether or not he’ll continue to keep Minnesota in consideration moving forward.
