Andrew Brommer Will Re-Open His Recruitment

Andrew Brommer, a 6-foot-8 junior forward from Rosemount (MN) High who committed to Minnesota, will re-open his recruitment, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Brommer committed last fall to the Gophers and then-head coach Dan Monson, who was replaced in December. Ex-Kentucky head coach Tubby Smith was named head coach in March and is working hard on the Class of 2008 recruiting.

Brommer averaged 16.3 points per game and led the Irish to a 9-17 mark. Rosemount fell to Rochester Century in the playoffs. He scored 24 in the playoff loss and had 20 or more points in four of his last five games of the year.

Brommer's father Rob told the Star Tribune Wednesday that his son is going to reopen his recruitment. That doesn't mean that the power forward won't play for the Gophers. He just wants to make sure that it is still a good fit.

"It's important for both Andrew and the University of Minnesota to look at the situation and see if it works for both sides," Rob Brommer said.

"Anytime there's a coaching change, you want to make sure it's the right fit," Rob Brommer said.

Wisconsin, Xavier and Northern Iowa were some of the schools that showed interested in Brommer before his commitment.

"I'm sure that there will be new people and some we talked to in the fall might not have a need anymore," Rob Brommer said.

Brommer plays for Chris Carr's 43 Hoops AAU team.
