Becker Commits to Gophers

Minnesota picked up Tommy Becker's commitment this weekend. Becker visited Iowa State last weekend and was very interested in the Cyclones, but ended up siding with the Gophers.

Tommy Becker, a 6'3, 230 pound linebacker has committed to Minnesota. This is a tough break for Iowa State as they've been recruiting Becker hard from the beginning. Becker visited Iowa State last weekend and enjoyed his visit, but in the end this weekend's visit to Minnesota is what did him in.


"Both programs were pretty much the same to me but in the end I just felt a little bit more comfortable at Minnesota," said Becker.


Becker is from Plymouth, Minnesota so staying at home was the deciding factor in the linebacker's decision. Oklahoma, Michigan State and Notre Dame were also being considered by Becker, but Iowa State and Minnesota were his top two choices.
