Minnesota signed 25 recruits for the Class of 2018 on Wednesday, and the Gophers received their first 2019 commitment one day later. QB Cole Kramer announced his commitment Thursday morning.

Kramer is a three-star quarterback from Eden Prairie, Minnesota. P.J. Fleck’s Gophers were the only school so far to offer the 6-foot-1, 180-pound recruit, though Iowa and Michigan State had been showing interest in Kramer. 247Sports classifies him as dual-threat QB, meaning Kramer is a threat with his legs as well. 247Sports grades Kramer as the No. 22 dual-threat QB and No. 4 Minnesota recruit in the Class of 2019.
Minnesota’s QB situation is in flux, with Demry Croft gaining the starting job late in the season before transferring due to an unspecified incident with a damaged door. The Gophers now have sophomore Seth Green, freshmen Morgan Tanner, Jaran Roste and Samuel Pickerign and junior college transfer Vic Viramontes for next season.
Kramer’s commitment is verbal until he signs a national letter of intent, which he will not be able to do until the next early signing period in December 2018.
