Houston RB Josh Huff Commits to Minnesota

Josh Huff, a 5-foot-10, 190-pound running back from Houston (TX) Nimitz, has committed to Minnesota, according to sources close to his recruitment. Huff, who visited Minnesota for their season opener versus Air Force, had committed to Utah. Huff will lead Nimitz against 0-8 MacArthur tonight. Nimitz needs to beat MacArthur and then beat Humble in the final game of the season to make the playoffs.

Josh Huff, who was a PrepStar All-Region running back choice, had received recruiting interest from Utah, Minnesota and Missouri. He runs a 4,4 forty yard dash and participates on the team's track and field squad.

Nimitz is 2-6 this season and needs two more wins to make postseason play. Nimitz needs to beat 0-8 MacArthur and then beat 3-6 Humble in the final game of the season to make the playoffs.

Huff is an academic qualifier with a 2.7 GPA.

Huff is the 24th commitment for Minnesota, if you count Josh Campion and Joey Searcy, who signed in February but will not join the program until January. Both of those players are visiting the campus this weekend. Minnesota will likely sign a 28-man recruiting class.
