The Gopher football program landed themselves a pretty good football player today, as Fairfield (Ohio) linebacker Marquise Vann has made a verbal commitment to the University of Minnesota.â†µ
Vann stands 6’ and weighs in at 230 pounds. He’s been timed at 4.64 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He made the conversion from defensive end prior to his junior year, and was named All-Conference at the position.â†µ
"It’s a great fit for Marquise," Fairfield coach Aaron Fitzstephens said. "He’ll get a chance to play early at Minnesota. He just loves it up there. Minnesota just got a really good football player."â†µ
Vann also made visits to Michigan State, Toledo, and Bowling Green.
