Woodbury tight end Nathan Bursch commits to the Gophers


It looks like the Minnesota Gophers have gotten another in-state recruit to commit for 2017.

Woodbury tight end Nathan Bursch is a consensus three-star recruit. He announced the news on Twitter Monday.


Bursch is a 6-foot-5, 235-pound tight end. According to the Star Tribune he also had offers from North Dakota, South Dakota and South Dakota State.

He becomes the sixth player to commit to the Gophers for 2017 – the fifth from Minnesota.

He joins Marshall offensive lineman Blaise Andries, Robbinsdale Cooper offensive lineman Eric Abojei, and running back Dominik London and kicker Grant Ryerse from East Ridge.

Here's a little look at what Bursch can do.
