The Minnesota Golden Gophers have announced that Florida defensive end Thieren Cockran has signed a letter of intent to play for the team.
Cockran is rated as a two-star prospect by Rivals.com, and currently attends Homestead High School near Miami, Florida. He stands 6'5" and weighs 210 pounds, but some time in the Gophers' strength and conditioning program should allow him to bulk up to where he needs to be to stand up as a defensive end in the Big Ten.
