JC DT Tim McGee Is Not Going to be a Gopher

Tim McGee, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound defensive tackle from East Mississippi (MS) CC, is not expected to be part of the Minnesota Gopher football team this fall, according to sources close to his recruitment. McGee was rated as a four-star prospect by Scout.com and was the third-ranked junior college defensive tackle in the nation.

Tim McGee attended East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Miss. He played both tackle and nose during the 2007 season, helping the Lions to a 4-5 record.

McGee had 26 tackles, seven tackles-for-loss, four sacks and three passes batted down as a sophomore and he forced a fumble and had three pass breakups. McGee had eight tackles, one for a loss, as a freshman in 2006.

McGee, who runs a 5.0 40-yard dash and bench presses 405 pounds, originally picked Minnesota over interest from Kansas State and Memphis.
