Gophers football adds fast South Carolina receiver Tyler Brown
Coach P.J. Fleck gave Brown his first Power 5 conference offer last weekend
The Minnesota Golden Gophers football program received a commitment from under-the-radar South Carolina receiver Tyler Brown on Monday.
Brown, who is listed at 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds, does not yet have a recruiting ranking and held zero scholarship offers from Power Five conference schools, but there was reported interest from North Carolina, Duke, Clemson, Coastal Carolina and Appalachian State.
Brown was in Minnesota for an official visit last weekend and committed the day afterward.
“We goin to the Twin Cities,” Brown tweeted Monday. “@GopherFootball #committed”
Brown, also a high school sprinter, said he had 1,255 all-purpose yards and 15 touchdowns at Greenville Senior High School as a junior last season.
The Gophers have 18 pledges for next year’s class, with 10 joining in June.
