Coach Kill Announces Roster Changes

University of Minnesota head football coach Jerry Kill announced the signing of two student-athletes to Big Ten scholarship tenders Friday. Kill also announced the departure of two student-athletes from the Gopher football program.

Wide receiver Malcolm Moulton (Lawrenceville, Ga.), a transfer from Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College, has signed with the Gophers.

Moulton is a 5-11, 185-pounder who played one season at Fort Scott. He hauled in 44 receptions for 714 yards and five touchdowns last season for the Greyhounds. He was listed as the No. 31 junior college player in the nation and is rated as a three-star prospect by Moulton prepped at Central Gwinnett (Ga.) High School. He turned in a 40-reception season for 545 yards in 2007. That reception total ranks him No. 7 on the school's single-season receiving records chart. Moulton will have three seasons of eligibility at Minnesota.

"After spring ball, we felt we had an issue with depth at the receiver position," Kill said. "We needed some additional help at that position. We're hoping Malcolm can help us in that area."

Foreman is listed at 6-1, 210. He passed for more than 3,000 yards and nearly 30 touchdowns in his Manvel High School career. As a senior, Foreman rushed for 402 yards and four scores, while completing 90-of-142 passes for 1,198 yards, with 10 touchdowns and five interceptions. In his junior season, Foreman completed 80-of-147 passes for 843 yards and four TDs with five interceptions. As a sophomore, he passed for 1,251 yards and 15 touchdowns, after completing 104-of-225 pass attempts with 10 interceptions. lists him as a two-star recruit.

"Quarterback was also an area where we felt we could add a player," Kill said. "We'd like to create some more competition at the quarterback position and we're hoping Dexter can help us do that."

In addition to announcing the two newest Golden Gophers, Kill announced the departure of running back DeLeon Eskridge and tight end Tiree Eure.

"DeLeon has a family situation and he needs to be able to get closer to home," Kill said. "He and I both felt it was in his best interest to make this decision. Things just didn't work out for Tiree. We wish them both the best of luck in the future."
