"I'm pretty sure it was coach Anderson who offered me," Georgia safety Ty Hardimon said of his new Minnesota offer. "Anderson didn't say much as he just shook my hand and introduced himself and we couldn't really talk much more. My coach then told me a few minutes later that I had an offer from Minnesota. I also talked with coach Sawvel a lot and he's talked about the program and how I could fit in it and also about how they have nice weather up there. Sawvel came by the school earlier this week too."
Hardimon wants a school that will prepare him for life after football.
"I feel as though Minnesota is another great opportunity to carry on my 40-year plan," Hardimon explained. "The 40-year plan is basically the success of my life years after my football career is done. I have decent interest in Minnesota, I just want to see the campus and get a feel if I like it or not. I am visiting Minnesota this summer, I just don't know when yet. I'm planning on visiting Minnesota, Navy, West Virginia, Iowa State, Rutgers, Wake Forest and Illinois this summer. I just have to figure out dates."
The Georgia defensive back wants a decision here pretty soon.
"I'm looking for a decision at the end of June or the beginning of July, and at the latest, before school starts," Hardimon told GopherDigest. "I want a decision by that time as that'll be after I've taken visits to the schools I'm interested in and spots will be closing up. Those schools I listed like Minnesota and West Virginia that I'll be visiting this summer are the ones I'm most interested in."
