"Coach Reeves, the tight ends coach, is the Minnesota coach who offered me," North Carolina tight end Drake Deluliis said to GopherDigest. "Well he offered me and told me information about Minnesota and the education they provide as well as their current roster. He told me that he wanted to get on me early because he thinks that I could be a productive player in their offense and he really enjoys my play."

Deluliis wants to learn more about the Golden Gophers following this new offer. 

"What I know about Minnesota is basically what Coach Reeves told me," Deluliis explained to GopherDigest. "He told me about how great of quality their education is and how with my position of tight end graduating in the near future, I could potentially play fairly early if I'm ready to have the opportunity. I'm super thankful for them to give me an opportunity and look forward to see how our relationship moves forward! I know Minnesota is a very admirable program and I'll visit if the opportunity presents itself."

The North Carolina tight end does have a few visits planned soon. 

"I'll be visiting Georgia Tech on the 22nd and Virginia Tech on either April 4th or 12th," Deluliis told GopherDigest. "I don't have any schools standing out right now as well."
