Gophers strike again in Texas

Senior defensive end Lincoln Plsek (Waco, Texas/Reicher) committed to play in the Big Ten for Minnesota over the weekend, Rivals.com reports. He made an official visit to campus on Dec. 2.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound prospect also received scholarship offers from Army, Rice and Stephen F. Austin. Other programs, including Air Force, Kansas and Texas State, showed interest.

Additionally, linebacker Barrington Morris (Sunrise, Fla./Piper) is no longer committed to the Gophers. His other offers include UConn, Western Kentucky, Nebraska, Syracuse, Central Florida, Florida International, Northern Illinois, Texas Tech and Western Michigan.
