Minnesota Football Recruiting: 31 Players Added To Golden Gophers Roster

National Signing Day has come and gone for the Minnesota Golden Gophers this year as 31 players were added to the football team's roster on Wednesday. There weren't a lot of huge surprises that happened on the biggest day of the recruiting year, but it seems to have been a good day regardless.

Coach Jerry Kill signed 25 high school players and six players from the juco ranks on Wednesday from a total of 13 different states. Minnesota yielded the most prospects, but four came from Texas and three came from Florida while the remaining 10 states had two players apiece.

"The most important thing for us was to make sure we got kids that fit in here at the University of Minnesota with our system and what we expect," Kill said in a press release. "I think we did that. And then of course we needed to improve the athleticism and speed in our football program and I think we did that too."

It'll be interesting to see if those skillsets show through next fall.
