Richard Pitino added a 3-star recruit to his 2020 class on Sunday morning. Turkish guard David Mutaf has told 24/7 Sports that he will be attending the University of Minnesota, to play basketball for the Minnesota Gophers.
“I decided to go University of Minnesota because I believe that Gophers is a good program for me and during recruiting process I had good communication with coach Pitino and his staff.” Mutaf said. “I believe they have good team and great fans. I am really excited to play there.”247Sports.com
Mutaf chose Minnesota over USC, Georgetown, Arizona State, and Arkansas to name a few. Now, Mutaf joins 4-star recruits Jamal Mashburn Jr and Martice Mitchell in what seems to be a solid recruiting class for Pitino and company.
Hopefully, with Mutaf, Mashburn Jr, and Mitchell joining the Gophers, the U can become competitive in the Big Ten once again and battle for a spot in the “Big Dance” this year. I have a feeling Pitino’s job relies heavily on this incoming class.
