Today, the Minnesota Gophers football program had a big day. Not only did head coach PJ Fleck reveal new uniforms for the upcoming season, but the team also secured a major commitment from one of Minnesota’s top high schoolers in the class of 2025.

Homegrown DL Abu Tarawallie commits to Minnesota Gophers

Defensive lineman Abu Tarawallie, a 3-star recruit from Osseo, MN, who played at Heritage Christian Academy in Minneapolis, will stay home and play his college ball down the road in Dinkytown.

Tarawallie is a big guy, measuring in at 6’3 and weighing 275 pounds. He’s the second-highest rated high school player in the state for the class of 2025, right behind Emmanuel Karmo, who also recently committed to the Gophers.

Tarawallie chose to stay home over taking other power four offers from schools like Michigan State, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Kansas State. Tarawallie’s athleticism is undeniable, making him a huge acquisition for PJ Fleck, who is having a heck of an off season so far stacking commitments on top of each other.
