That was the first one for the 6'5, 235-lb prospect, and he received it at the Gophers' junior day.
"I was very happy that they offered because after the junior day visit, I could definitely see myself being a Gopher," he added.
Currently hearing from other schools like Stanford, Wisconsin and Michigan as well, the Gophers are likely to end up with some competition for Elmore, but they are off to a quick early start in his recruitment.
"Minnesota seems like a school that is definitely on the uprising. They have a really good staff filled with coaches who care led by Coach Kill."
Elmore played defense as well last season, but says most of his interest is coming at tight end.
