"I just off the phone with Coach Claeys and it's official, I am committed to the University of Minnesota," JUCO running back Kobe McCrary said to GopherDigest Monday night. "He was excited as he just got done with an in-home visit, and told me this was great news. I chose Minnesota as I just fell in love with the school and the city there. I love their coaching staff too. They're coaches of the players and the offensive fits me like a glove. They're going to run a pro style offense with a lot of down hill plays like power and inside zone. Things I've ran in my high school and JUCO career."
McCrary is now ready to focus on becoming a Gopher.
"I feel great about my decision and now I just have to focus on finishing up this semester and staying in shape before I head up this summer. I'll have three years to play two at Minnesota and I want fans to know that I'm just excited to be apart of the Gopher Football program."
