In the most relieving news of the day, top Minnesota Gophers football commit, Avante Dickerson told 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong that “as of now, he’s still 100% sure” he’ll be signing his official Letter of Intent in February, for the University of Minnesota.



Moving forward head coach PJ Fleck and his staff will continue to show Dickerson how much they want to coach him.

“They were cool with it and support me and everything,” Dickerson said.

Dickerson added “right now I’m 100 percent sure,” he’ll sign with the Gophers in February before elaborating on what stands out.

“Probably the coaches that’s the main thing. The relationship I have with the coaches that I’ve built with them over nine months.”

This is heartwarming news to a Minnesota Gophers fanbase that needs a pick-me-up, after going 3-4 on the season and opting-out of bowl play. This is it.

Avante Dickerson is far and away the highest-rated commit that PJ Fleck received for the 2021 recruiting class so keeping him is vital. “As of now” might not mean anything come February so I’m sure a lot could unfold between now and then.

Still “as of now”, Gopher coaches and fans couldn’t have hoped for a better answer than this one. If you want to read more about Dickerson’s non-committed status during National Signing Day, you can click here.
