Gophers WR commit Dredrick Snelson "loved" his Minnesota official visit

Gophers WR commit Dredrick Snelson committed to Minnesota sight unseen over the summer and took his first visit up to Minneapolis this past weekend. He spoke with GopherDigest about his initial visit.

"My mom and I just got a feel for the school and the coaches," Dredrick Snelson said to GopherDigest. "We hung out with the players most of the time. I spoke a lot with wide receiver's coach Brian Anderson, offensive coordinator Matt Limegrover and head coach Tracy Claeys. Coach Anderson was just saying that he can't wait for me to come up and for me to be that dynamic playmaker they need. They're ready to get the ball in my hands soon. Coach Limegrover said he's going to use me in various ways because he feels I'm a different breed and that I'm a monster with the ball in my hands. Coach Claeys and I just talked about life and the school itself. He answered every question I have, so I feel very comfortable with things at Minnesota now."

Snelson's host is a guy that he anticipates receiving a lot of passes from in the next four years. 

"My host for the visit was Demry Croft," Snelson explained to GopherDigest. "He was cool and he's the quarterback, so we talked a lot about how he would love getting the ball in my hands. As far as the game goes, I think they executed on every aspect except the last two plays, but the atmosphere was great. My mom absolutely loved it there too. I got to talk with a few of the offensive line commits, but I can't remember their names exactly. They were excited to see me and just treated me very well."

Gopher fans shouldn't worry about Snelson and his commitment to Minnesota following the visit. 

"I'm 1,000 with my commitment to Minnesota," Snelson told GopherDigest. "I'm feeling pretty good about it. My favorite part of the visit was everything. I loved every part of my visit."
