Blessed to receive an offer from The University of Minnesota ?????? pic.twitter.com/onFlGHWN2C— Martell Pettaway (@YeeaahhP) July 29, 2015
"Coach Reeves is the Minnesota coach that offered me," Pettaway said. "He told me that they recruit a little slower than most, but I was on top of their board and would have gotten the offer a month ago, but they were skeptical because of my commitment."
Pettaway has legitimate interest in Minnesota and has a friend on the team.
"I'd like to visit the campus and learn more about them," Pettaway explained to GopherDigest. "I think it's a cool offer though as they're in the Big Ten. I know a friend of mine in Dior Johnson goes there and we've known each for a few years, so I'd say we're good friends. I will be taking an official visit to Minnesota on Halloween for their game against Michigan."
The West Virginia running back commit has a few things he's working on for the fall.
"I'm working on cutting less and increasing my speed and power as our offense is made to just cut once and go north and south. I haven't heard from any other schools besides Minnesota and West Virginia lately, so we'll see what happens this fall."
