Andrew Brommer Commits to Minnesota

Andrew Brommer, a 6-foot-9, 215-pound junior from Rosemount (MN) High, has committed to Minnesota, according to sources close to his recruitment. Brommer made an unofficial visit to Minnesota last weekend and attended Saturday's football game versus Penn State.

Andrew Brommer averaged 13.2 points per game last year for the Irish, who finished just 4-22. He scored in double figures in 22 of 26 games with a season high of 29 points versus Bloomington Kennedy.

Brommer is the first player from the Class of 2008 to commit to Minnesota. The Gophers have also offered Princeton center Jared Berggren, who also took an unofficial visit to Minnesota last weekend.

Brommer visited Minnesota last weekend, but did not have a chance to watch the Gopher football game last Saturday against Michigan, since he was attending the Rosemount homecoming dance.

Brommer picked Minnesota over offers from Northern Iowa, Illinois State, TCU and Albany.

Brommer's father, Robert, played basketball at North Dakota State and Augsburg. Robert told GoldenSports.Net that several other teams had attended open gyms at Rosemount to watch his son.

"All the schools that had offered have watched him. Xavier, Virginia and Wisconsin was there twice."

Robert said that his son has a 3.7 GPA and is interested in math and science.

"He is interested in the Management and Engineering programs. Everything about the University has been first rate."

Brommer played for the 43 Hoops AAU team that won the Hoosier Shootout 16-and-under division in July. He also played in the adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas and the Best of the Summer in Las Vegas.

Broomer will play in the Concordia Fall League with his Rosemount teammates. Rosemount returns four of their top five scorers and figures to be vastly improved this season.

Brommer has good touch for a big man and has the ability to put the ball on the floor. He is a good passer and shotblocker who will likely become a better inside player as he continues to add strength. He needs to finish around the basket better, but that will likely come with more strength.

Brommer averaged 6.3 points per game as a freshman after missing the beginning of the year due to a broken left foot.

Brommer played on the Minnesota Magic Elite 15 and under team before switching to 43 Hoops this past year.
