Owatonna defensive end Stelter commits to the Gophers


Andrew Stelter, a defensive end from Owatonna, has committed to play for Coach Jerry Kill and the Minnesota Gophers, Stelter announced Saturday.

Stelter, at 6-4 and 247 pounds, was a key in-state recruit for the Gophers, and Rivals.com ranked him as a three-star recruit, according to the Star Tribune. Stelter was also looking at Iowa State, Harvard, Princeton and Yale.

Stelter is the sixth prospect to join the Gophers' class of 2014 and the second defensive linemen. Stelter is expected to play defensive tackle at the U, though he is officially listed as a strong-side end.

The Daily Gopher at SB Nation has this to say about Stelter:

"The Owatonna native doesn't have a lot of flash to his game and even from his highlight reel, you don't see much - if any - showboating. What he does bring is a good first step and short area quickness, a big frame, toughness and good use of his hands."
