LB Peter Westerhaus Signs With Minnesota Golden Gophers

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have kept another of Minnesota's top high school players close to home, as linebacker Peter Westerhaus has signed a letter of intent to play his college football for the Coach Jerry Kill and the Gophers.

Westerhaus, a 6'3", 205-pound linebacker, played his high school football at Holy Family High School in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Rivals.com has Westerhaus ranked as the 3rd-best high school player in the state of Minnesota, and the 68th-best outside linebacker prospect in the nation. ESPN/Scouts, Inc. has Westerhaus as the 100th-best outside linebacker in the nation, while Scout.com has him listed as a tight end, ranking him at 70th in the nation at that position. All three of those scouting services have given him a three-star rating.

Westerhaus was named Minnesota's Mr. Football for 2010, as well as a second-team All-American at the tight end position by Rivals.com. He played both ways in high school in 2010, recording 139 tackles and finding the end zone for 11 touchdowns.
