Wayzata LB Chris Wipson Commits to Minnesota

Wayzata linebacker Chris Wipson received an offer from the Gophers after impressing them last month at their summer camp. He already had offers from Air Force, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota, and decided to wait a few weeks to see if any other offers came in, but has now made the decision to commit to Minnesota.

"I've been thinking about it for a few weeks and decided to make it official today," said Wipson.

He called Coach Kill this morning to give him the good news and says the coach was very happy.

"He (Coach Kill) was just really excited, happy to have me on board," he said.

Along with being his hometown team, Chris says the coaching staff at Minnesota played a big role in his decision.

"I really like the coaching staff," he said. "The program is going in the right direction. They are on a mission to make the Minnesota football program one of the best in the Big Ten and I want to be a part of that."
