Minnesota Recruiting Update: WR Andre McDonald Commits To Golden Gophers...Again

The Minnesota Golden Gophers continue to put together a strong recruiting class.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers boosted their recruiting class with a commitment from the state's top recruit, Hopkins WR Andre McDonald.

This is the second time McDonald has committed to play for coach Jerry Kill. His first commitment came last year but he changed his mind this past summer and began looking at other schools creating some confusion and an inadvertent commitment to Vanderbilt.

This time McDonald is ready to stay home where he'll join a recruiting class that includes quarterback Philip Nelson out of Mankato West. The Daily Gopher will wait until it is official before getting too excited, but they realize the talent McDonald can bring to the program.

At 6'3 and already 200 pounds, Fuller talks about him drawing comparisons to former Cretin Derham Hall and Notre Dame standout Michael Floyd. That's some lofty expectations, but McDonald has a real chance to play right away as a freshman this fall.

Assuming he sticks to his commitment this time, this is a great get for Coach Kill and his staff. Welcome Andre. We're very glad to have you.
