Four-star small forward Amir Coffey commits to the Minnesota Gophers

The Golden Gophers just landed the best player in the state of Minnesota moments ago when Hopkins small forward Amir Coffey pledged to the Gophers.

Moments ago, Hopkins (Minn.) four-star small forward Amir Coffey committed to be the next Minnesota Golden Gopher at his press conference. Coffey becomes the highest rated recruit to choose Minnesota at number 41 overall since Royce White (#32) did in 2009 and joins fellow Minnesotan Michael Hurt in Richard Pitino's 2016 class. 

Scout evaluation on Coffey: "Coffey is a smooth jump shooter with ample range past the three-point arc. He also possesses a solid floor game and an advanced maturity in terms of poise and team play. He isn't the most athletic wing, however, and he'll need to get stronger and more physically. Still, his ability to stretch defenses gives him great value to college programs."
