Picture Perfect

Minnesota commit, MN DE Andrew Stelter updates how his perfect season is going so far, how he is doing on the field and where his commitment status is at with the Gophers

Minnesota commit, Owatonna (MN.) senior defensive end Andrew Stelter is rated the No. 114 defensive end in the nation and a three star commit by Fox Sports Next. He is still trying to prove his doubters wrong about his game and is having a big season in doing so.

"We're 8-0 and ranked number 1 in 5A," Stelter told GopherDigest. "I'm not exactly sure what my stats are, but I think have 7 sacks, around like 32 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and 2 fumble recoveries. I feel like I've improved on my footwork and I'm still working on playing lower. Overall, I need to keep working hard and make myself a better player everyday."

Things are quickly moving for the 6-4, 250-pound defensive lineman and he talks about how it feels to be a senior and being a Gopher next year.

"It feels pretty good being a senior," said Stelter. "It has gone by so fast from my sophomore year to now. It has been a ride and I am still on it. I'm very solid with Minnesota and I'm not worried about Coach Kill. He is a great coach and a great person. I can't wait to put on the maroon and gold jersey!"

The Gophers have two defensive linemen in this class so far with Stelter and Mount Carmel (IL.) defensive tackle Steven Richardson
