6-8 Hakeem Rollins to make decision this weekend

Six-foot-8 forward Hakeem Rollins of Mesa (Ariz.) CC will make his college decision between Minnesota and Washington this weekend. The honorable mention JC All-American made a visit to the Minnesota campus this past weekend along with his parents. He was expected to visit Connecticut this weekend, but he cancelled his visit. He had previously visited Southern Illinois and Cal Santa Barbara.

Hakeem Rollins was the final official visit for the Gophers, due to NCAA sanctions.

Rollins averaged 24.8 points and 8.9 rebounds per game this season. He grew from 6-5 and 195 pounds to 6-8 and 230.

The Gophers have three available scholarships for next season and currently have just nine scholarship players with the loss of sophomore Rick Rickert and the graduation of Jerry Holman and Kevin Burleson.
